Awesome Report. I'll skip all the food and drink my butt off around the World. Some of those selections on drinks looked intriguing. Have you guys ever "Drank Around the World" and tried every drink?

Awesome trip report! Excited to catch the last day and a half of the festival in November to kick off my first visit to Orlando (so happy they extended the dates this year!). Craft beer section... yummy. :p

I had a buddy try it once, we lost him and like an hour later found him napping in some bushes backstage in Morocco. Some guys just can't handle Epcot.

Here are my tips for successfully drinking your way around the world at Epcot (while actually remembering it)...

* Do it during the Food & Wine or the Spring Flower & Garden Festival. The country food stalls have smaller drink samples so you can still technically drink your way around the world while still managing to be a respectable park guest.

* Do not skip the food. Not only is it amazing, but it helps absorb some of the alcohol.

* Try not to just drink beer. Even with smaller portions, you will get full quickly. Take some time for a tequila shot in Mexico, Sambuca in Italy or the weird tasting effed up liquor that they were serving in Norway.

* Space it out. We got there around noon, went in and hit the first four countries on the right, went back and did some of the attractions in the front of the park, went back for a few more countries, back to the front of the park and so forth.

* Have a water every now and again if it's hot out!

* Captain Obvious says to make sure that no matter what...you have a DD or are staying onsite!

Have fun and make sure to take photos and post a report!

It was a bit perplexing in taste, but reminded me a bit of moonshine.

When in Mexico, you have to go with the pure agave tequila shooter!

It's common in Norway to have a shot of this together with the Christmas dinner (along with wine, beer and whatever the kids are drinking). And for the record I'm not a fan either... at all! LOL! :lol: I usually take a small shot though for the social part, but I have yet to experience one I like.

By the way, do they still serve Carlsberg beer in Norway? First of all it's Danish and not Norwegian, but most important it would improve our pavilion tremendously if they actually started serving some decent beer...

^^ That's funny that you didn't like it because that was Michael's reaction after I took the photo, "How can Scandinavian's drink that sh%t - that's horrible!"

Of course, I'm sitting there dying laughing while he was about ready to throw up! :lmao:
