Drinking around the World at EPCOT
An activity that some "Adults" attempt whilst visiting EPCOT is "Drinking Around the World", the World being the World Showcase part of EPCOT, made up of 12 themed areas, 11 countries and one outpost area.
Each Country offers food and drink from that particular country and you will find a good selection of International beers and other alcoholic drinks.
The aim of "Drinking around the World" is to consume an alcoholic drink from each one of the 11 countries. YES that is 11 drinks, alcoholic drinks! 11 drinks is a lot for most people and if you think you can't handle this, remember it's not cool to be steaming drunk at a Disney theme park, remember it's a family park. So please be sensible and only attempt this if you think you can handle the volume of alcohol.
You could cut the number of drinks by just doing every other country or countries of interest or you could share each drink between the members of your party, this way you get to taste each drink without killing your liver!
How much will this cost?
Expect to pay between $6 and $8 for most drinks, some are slightly less and some slightly more depending on the type and size of drink.
Cocktail drinks will be more expensive and wine is usually cheaper.
So in total you would be looking somewhere between $70 and $100.
Lets get started.
First, remember that you need to be 21 years old or over to consume alcohol, make sure you carry I.D. even if you are a lot older.
Second, remember alcohol will dehydrate you. Alcohol is a diuretic, this means it encourages the body to lose more water than it takes on. Combine this with the Orlando heat and it is going to take it's toll.
You can either go around the world clockwise starting at Mexico or anticlockwise starting at Canada.
I would suggest going anticlockwise this way you can start with the beers from Canada and UK then wine from france and ending with a margarita at Mexico.
I will try and list only the beverages available from counter service or kiosks, however all of the sit down restaurants will supply you with a good drinks menu (over priced compared to the kiosks).
There is no counter service here just the Kiosk outside the pavilion unless you have a reservation at the restaurant Le Cellier.
