The BEST Snacks for Kids Between Epcot Festivals
Epcot, especially World Showcase, was created with adults in mind. The historically accurate architecture invites guests to steep themselves in each country’s native cultures and sample food and drinks from around the world. To me, that sounds lovely! The kid’s response to that sentence, though = “BORING!”
Without a fun Festival scavenger hunt and small plates of food for them to get excited about, the trip around World Showcase is not usually one kids look forward to on their Disney vacations. I was a kid in Epcot once myself, so I’ve compiled the best kid-friendly snacks you can find between Festivals (aka right now!) at Epcot!
Kid-Approved Lunches, Snacks, and Treats
- Chocolate Chip Cookie from Les Halles in France. This super-approachable cookie is studded with rich chocolate pieces! It’s simple enough to please anyone but dense and rich enough to please more refined palettes too.
- Mac and Cheese from Regal Eagle Smokehouse. This is a perfect dish for kids- nothing about it is fancy and it’s always a go-to.
- Funnel Cake with Ice Cream from the America Pavilion- the cookies and cream option has your kids’ name written all over it!
- Caramel Kuche In Germany. You can’t go wrong with anything drenched in caramel, but my choice for kids is always their super soft, caramel-drizzled cookie!
- La Cantina de San Angel- I’ve got two great choices for kids here! Their chicken tacos served with tortilla chips are a great, approachable lunch choice. After they’ve filled up on their entree, treat your kids to an order of the mini dipping churros! They’re served warm with a side of chocolate-hazelnut sauce…really, need I say more?
- Hand Scooped Ice Cream from Les Artisan des Glaces. The only hand-dipped ice cream spot in the Park, the eclectic menu features both classic and creative flavors.
- Specialty Cupcakes from Sunshine Seasons. These babies are huge, so don’t be afraid to grab an extra fork and share with your kiddo!
- Giant Bavarian Pretzel from Germany. This is also a massive snack perfect for sharing among siblings!
In addition to these kid-approved snack options, Epcot actually has a lot to offer its youngest guests. You can get your child excited about dinner by dining at themed locations with show elements like Teppan Edo (hibachi with a show) or Biergarten (an indoor location themed to look like a German village at night!).
Plus, Epcot’s current nighttime show- Epcot Forever- is actually narrated and sung by kids, making it a perfectly relatable and fun show for all ages!
