Drinking Around the World

Not the Real One. I am talking about the World Showcase at Epcot.


Who doesn't love going to the happiest place on Earth on vacation, right? With lots of people around, the heat, the screaming kids, the non-stop music, the hour long lines and the not so cheap souvenirs and snacks, it all sounds like a dream or more like a nightmare come true, especially if you are traveling with ten more people that you barely see throughout the year, including your three-year-old nephew that wants to take pictures with every single character there is. The good news is that there is a park designed specially for adults to have a great time and forget about how stressful holidays are and that is Epcots' World Showcase. 

In case you have never heard of it, which is hard to believe if you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World, the World Showcase is this magical place made up by 11 different pavilions where within a few steps, you can travel from country to country and experience its unique architecture, traditions, cuisine and (drumroll, please) drinks. 

But if course, if it is your first, third, or tenth time visiting EPCOT, it is always difficult to choose the best drinks and not spending more than 200 dollars. Some of my recommendations are from past experiences and from friends and family that have been visiting the park for more than ten years, so I don't want to say my recommendations are a guarantee but at least I can say I've tried all of them and survived, and so has my bank account. 

The best way to start is from left to right or in other words the first pavilion should be Mexico and the last one Canada. So let's start drinking around the world.
