Hello everyone!

It’s time to recap our Disney World trip. Man oh man, I have so many things to say about Disney! This was my first time there and Todd went when he was a kid. As adults, the trip was wonderful.

Todd and I rode a lot of rides, saw some really fun performances, and just enjoyed walking around. However, the real highlight for me was finding the best food and drink at Disney World, mostly in Epcot. Therefore, I am going to highlight my top 8 eating and drinking moments in Disney.

We used this article for inspiration of what and where to eat, Yelp, and our friends for ideas.

1. Mexico Pavilion: La Cava del Tequila

Thanks to a few friends and some quick Google searching, we went to La Cava del Tequila one our first day in Disney. La Cava del Tequila is located in Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion. My friend Ali highly recommended this place for their margaritas and ambiance. After a quick look at the menu, I went with the Avocado margarita {see the picture below} and it was AMAZING. It was smooth and not too sweet. The perfect way to start off our Disney vacation.

They even had a Twitter special. Follow them and you get a special price on a tequila shot {I believe it was $5}.

2. The Lapu Lapu

The Lapu Lapu can be found at the Tambu Lounge at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. Served in a pineapple, the rum drink is delicious and fun to drink. Access to the Polynesian Resort is so easy. Parking is free and you just walk in to the Tambu Lounge. I highly recommend this drink if you find yourself looking for a fun and exotic drink.

3. Club Cool

Club Cool is an Epcot spot that I came across while doing some online Disney research. I doubt I would have spotted the awesomeness of this place had I not came across it ahead of time. Club Cool is sponsored by Coca Cola and features FREE soft drinks from around the world. Did you hear me? F.R.E.E. You walk in, grab some little cups, and try out different drinks. They also had Coca Cola merchandise for sale. This was the perfect stop in the middle of a hot day.

4. A Slushie for Grown-Ups

The Grey Goose Slushie can be found in Epcot’s France Pavilion. It was perfect for the middle of the day heat and I wish I would have had more than one!

5. Germany Bratwurst 

In the Germany Pavilion, we had some bratwurst. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of bratwurst, but this was an exception. The sausage was flavorful and the bread tasted homemade. We would have gotten a beer as well, but we were trying to stay in our budget.

6. Norwegian School Bread

If you are looking for a unique sugary pastry, look no further than School Bread in Norway. It’s big enough to share, and delicious enough to tame any sweet tooth.

7. French Desserts

The same friend who recommended the Mexico margaritas was the same friend who advised us to save France for last in order to indulge in the yummy desserts. There were a ton of desserts to choose from! Along with our creme brulee and mouse, we ordered a cappuccino and ate outside on a really cute table. I’m so happy that we saved France for last.

8. 50′s Prime Time Cafe

One night, we decided to eat at a Disney restaurant. After some quick Googling, we came across 50′s Prime Time Cafe which is located in Hollywood Studios. This place has nostalgia written all over it. It takes you back in time to a 1950′s kitchen complete with a pesky mother {the waitress} and comfort food. {We looked at restaurants the day of, and luckily, 50′s Prime Time had an available reservation at 8:45 pm. I highly recommend booking ahead of time!}

The entire restaurant decor follows the theme of the restaurant – it was very cool and homey.

The waiting room area, aka a family room. The TVs throughout the restaurant played old time sitcoms like Mary Tyler Moore.

The menu had items like Grandpa’s Crab Cake and Cousin Andy’s Iceberg Lettuce. We shared the Fried Herb and Garlic Cheese appetizer and it was incredible.

I stuck with Chicken Noodle soup {very yummy} and Cousin Andy’s Iceberg Lettuce Salad {pretty basic}.

They had old time toys lying around. The wait staff was very much in character the whole time. Our waitress kept nagging me to keep my elbows off the table. Plus, she got on some other patrons about finishing their vegetables :-) It was all in good fun and quite the experience.

I don’t think Todd knew I was taking his picture – haha.

To top it off, the food was pretty awesome. We ended with a brownie sundae, which was as incredible as is looks in this picture.

I cannot wait to go back and try more unique food experiences at Disney!

Omg, I can’t believe the 50′s prime time cafe is still there! I went there 20 years ago when I was like 10! Thanks for bringing back memories!

OMG loving all the stuff you saw and ate. I would die to be at that 50′s diner. I love things like that!
