Africa - Refreshment Outpost


Drink stand located in "Africa" between China & Germany.

Beer
Orlando Blonde Ale - $7
Safari Amber - $7
Florida Lager - $8.50
Bud Light - $6.25

Specialty Drink
Mango Starr Smoothie - $9.50
Featuring African Starr Rum.

Food 
Hot Dogs, Pretzels, chips, ice cream treats

Atmosphere 
Cute outpost themed area with congo drums just begging to be played. Check out the Coke containers- they'll give you a surprise. There is occasionally a musician playing the congo drums and singing that makes it a fun stop for kids & adults. There are a few chairs & tables across the way by the water.

Review 
Safari Amber is the unique beer that is widely available at Animal Kingdom. It is a darker lager, with a sweet taste, but then turns rather hoppy for the aftertaste. If all you drink is Bud Light, this isn't for you.

As many people have noticed...has Epcot downgraded Africa to a country? At first glance, obviously. But, take a closer look. Africa is actually represented again, by Morocco. Apparently there's a little more love for Africa than everyone thinks.

Food

Atmosphere 
Head back to the 50' waterfall for some fresh Canadian scenery to go along with your fresh Canadian beer.  The 360 degree movie was re-shot, at least partially, for 2008 with Martin Short.  FYI, You're allowed to finish up your beer in the waiting area but it's not allowed in the theater. (Some people have reported back that they got into the theater with their beer. Don't count on it, but you may luck out!)

Review 
Moosehead is a hoppier lager with a bitter aftertaste. Labbatt is the Canadian's take on Budweiser . . . I hate to admit this but I think it's better than ours. Lets blame it on it being so cold up there that all they've got to do is ski, ice skate and brew delicious beer.  I guess that makes me feel a little better.
    

Torontopolitan Review 
We were excited to see this drink added to the cart's menu. Obviously, this looks like it's right up our alley! Unfortunately it was one of the biggest disappointments of a drink we've had with Disney, ever. While cosmopolitans are kind of the wimp in the martini world, these are still martinis. That means you're supposed to taste, savor and enjoy the high quality alcohol that goes into them. This sad excuse of a drink is like Hi-C with a heavy squeeze of lime. Very disappointing for an eight dollar cocktail.

It should be mentioned that the drink stand pours these from a pre-made mix. Hopefully they're handcrafted in the restaurant and poured appropriately inside. Our take on this one: Skip this overpriced kool-aid at the stand.

Unibroue Trois Pistoles Review 
We are happy to report that some fantastic beer has been added to the cart as of September 2011. These 3 Unibroue beers have always been available inside Le Cellier, but now you can enjoy them without an ADR! You can choose from Ephemere, Blanche de Chambly, or Trois Pistoles here, though there are more varieties of Unibroue available at most larger liquor stores. In the mood for a dark beer, we tried the Trois Pistoles. A delicious moderately dark beer with a deep caramel and nutty flavor with hints of nutmeg. Though it's nearly as dark as a Guinness (minus the foamy head) it's not nearly as hoppy as "dark" beers.

Update 1/12 
Unfortunately, the Unibroue selection has been removed from the cart. We recommend you follow our lead and ask at the cart every time you are here why they removed it and demand that they bring it back. Should've known it was too good to be true...




Treat yourself to a Neige Premiere Apple Ice Wine for a special treat. A very sweet wine with a cidery-apple hint to it makes this one of the better ice wines we've tried. Smooth, and satisfying and not too overpoweringly sweet like some ice wines can be. A highly recommended wine to put on your drinking around the world list. **Currently not available**

China - Gift Shop


Besides Chinese gift items ranging from candles to dresses to artwork, you'll now find wine & beer available for purchase.

Drinks
Tsing Tao beer (cans)
An assortment of Chinese Wines

Food 
Some rather interesting snacks (chips, cookies, etc.) from China.

Atmosphere 
A very detailed and ornate pavilion that deserves attention. Whether stopping in to see the movie (or just to get some AC) take a few minutes to enjoy what the area has to offer.

Review 
Tsing Tao is a smooth lager - not very hoppy and nearly no bitter aftertaste. If you like Bud, give it a try.

China - Lotus Blossom Cafe


Nín hǎo - Welcome to China!  You won't find a warmer welcome at any other restaurant in the showcase. Enjoy Chinese counter service food & drinks with typically shorter lines than other counter-service locations around the world showcase.

Drinks
Tsing Tao bottle - $6.25
Budweiser draft - $5.50
Yuengling draft - $5.50
Plum Wine - $4.99

Food 
A variety of typical Chinese food. The egg rolls and potstickers are the best choice for an affordable snack.

Atmosphere 
The seating area is usually busy, and rather industrial-like. It's not really a comfortable hang out for a long conversation but after a few hours of walking around it can still seem pretty inviting. Unless you’re grabbing some food, I suggest taking your drinks and wandering the pond area. There are some paths way in the back that most people miss. Sadly, the acrobatic show has been brought to an end in the summer of 2011. But this is still a beautiful area, especially at night when everything is lit up.

Review 
Tsing Tao is a smooth lager - not very hoppy and nearly no bitter aftertaste. If you like Bud, give it a try. The plum wine here is very sweet, a bit much for my taste. It's a small pour for the money, but at the same time it seems like the right amount of such a sweet drink.



Great area for the professional & amateur photographer alike.

Food
 
Pork Buns, Egg Rolls, Cucumber Salad, Ice Creams (Strawberry-Red Bean & Caramel-Ginger)

Review
 
Pictured here are two of the most sensational Chinese things I've found since I stumbled onto potstickers 20 years ago! The Mango Gingerita (yellow) is for someone who loves ginger. Really loves ginger. (and I was always partial to Mary Ann) The sweet mango and spicy ginger combine to make a very unique beverage. It's obvious this thing was made out of the real stuff instead of some fake flavorant, it's loaded with tiny ginger fibers that release a fresh raw ginger burst as you give your drink a quick chew on its way down. Unfortunately, the recipe has changed recently (2012) and is now missing those ginger fibers that gave this drink it's unique kick. It's still a very savory beverage and likely unlike anything you've ever had before. The Canto Loopy tastes like you stuck a straw into a canteloup, added vodka and enjoyed. You'll enjoy a garden-ie fresh, light, smooth and fruity way to get yourself cooled off in the hot Florida sun. 

Another strange-yet-delicious drink here is the Green Tea Plum Slush. This truly is a hard to describe flavor. A little green tea-y with the punch of the sweet plum wine. Give this one a try - you'll either love it or hate it. We love it.

These drinks are pre-made n/a mixes and they add the liquor on top, so you can order one N/A if you'd like (but why would you?). Not sure you're up for it? Give it a test drive first, they offered us free samples of the mix first to see if we'd like them. It's hard to find such unique drinks anywhere and this tea stand doesn't get the fanboy 'drink hype' it deserves.

6/2/12 Update
Look what we found! A new specialty drink called "Tipsy Ducks in Love", a Hong Kong style Yuan Yang drink - made with creamy Cold Tea and Coffee blended with Bourbon Whiskey and Chocolate. They are already winning on the name alone on this one! We were informed that this drink has very limited availability and is only a short term addition to the menu. 

10/12 Review 
After several evening visits to Epcot and hearing them tell us that they "just sold out", we finally got one, in fact we ordered two! This creamy iced coffee is very much like an iced latte - easy to drink, and provides quite the kick with the nice shot of bourbon and creamy, decadent chocolate aftertaste. We would like to recommend this as a great after dinner dessert drink, but they almost always sell out of it by 6pm! If you want to enjoy this cocktail, get one early - and you should, it's delicious.

Espresso, Coffee & Pastries Stands


You'll find these "soon to be more popular" coffee stands in between the Italian & United States pavilions, the entrance of World Showcase towards Mexico, between Canada & UK pavilions and in Future World near Ellen's Energy Adventure. While these have always been a decent place to grab a coffee and a donut, they have now expanded their offerings with liquors to compliment your coffee or latte, along with a new cocktail.

Alcoholic Beverages

Coffee - $8.49  12oz.  hot or iced
With your choice of Baileys, Kahlua, Jameson, Frangelico or Amaretto.

Tea Breeze - $8.49   12oz.
Fresh brewed tea and frozen lemonade topped with Absolut Vodka.

Latte - $8.99  12oz.  hot or iced
With your choice of Baileys, Kahlua, Jameson, Frangelico or Amaretto.


Hours
11am - 9:30pm (Longer on extra magic hours nights. Hours subject to change.)
Yes, you read that right - this is the ONLY place to get an alcoholic drink after 9pm in the World Showcase.

Note 
While there are other drinks on their menu that would be made better by the addition of some liquor, they are not allowed to add liquor to any of the pre-mixed items, such as the frozen drinks.

Review 
After noticing the alcoholic additions, we had to give these a try (even though it was blazingly hot out). Given the heat, we ordered an Iced Latte with Kahlua and the Tea Breeze. Do you already love iced lattes? You'll love them even more with the addition of these tasty liquors. The Tea Breeze (an Arnold Palmer with vodka) is a welcome drink addition to the park. Sweet and refreshing for the hot summer. These are only 12oz. so it's a bit of a splurge, but if you feel like a refreshing drink or need a caffeine fix, it's worth a glass.

France - Drink Stand

     

Get ready for an unexpected treat, two excellent slushes with top shelf liquor.  Grey Goose Citron and Grand Marnier perform their best impersonations of a frozen lemonade and an orange slush at the gas station.  These two slushes are on par with the delicious margaritas back in Mexico but with their own citrus twist on the original. Here's the bad news, they're served in a plastic martini glass.  Not only does it make you feel like a fool, drinking a slush with a straw out of a martini glass, but it can't be more than about 10oz.

Located lagoon side across from Chefs de France.

Grey Goose Citron SlushPour Quality 
Slushes: Above Average

Food 
None at this stand but you can head to the back of the pavillion for a great little pastry shop.

Atmosphere 
Ah, Paris, the city of lights, representing La Belle Epoque (the beautiful time) era of France from 1870-1910. Take your wine and try to spot the hidden mickey shrub as you wander through the gardens in front of the perfume shop or head inside and do a little shopping. If you're around when 'Serveur Amusant' juggling performer is setting up for a show, stick around and watch a comedic mime delicately stack, and climb, chairs to dizzying heights. There are a few tables & chairs right next to this stand overlooking the lagoon. If you're going to the movie, you are allowed to have a drink while waiting, but not in the main theater.


Review 
Slushes are ungodly expensive, but it's a decent amount of top shelf liquor and it tastes great.  While the beer and wine is your typical $6 bucks, the sparkling vodka is around two or three million . . . OK, it's $15 but it might as well be a billion. If anyone has tried the vodka, write in and let us know what you thought (or at least what you were thinking.)
