Eating on a Budget - Epcot
The Walt Disney World theme parks have some lovely restaurants with a fine ambience and excellent food. From our own experiences we have always enjoyed our meals and never been given cause for complaint. The Disney cast members are courteous and attentive, the surroundings are comfortable and the price, in our opinion, is just about reasonable, although some would argue that park restaurants are a little bit expensive.
The subject of affordability made us consider what alternatives were available to those on a tight budget. The suggestions we came up with may equally apply to families with young children or elderly relatives who no longer harbour huge appetites.
Our search began in Epcot and we were pleasantly surprised that there were some very affordable places to eat which also offered excellent quality food.
To try to give the reader a flavour (forgive the pun) of what to expect we have highlighted a few of our favourite examples which we believe offer exceptional value for money. Please be aware that this is just a small sample and with a little detective work of your own you may well come across a small bistro that appeals to the taste buds yet is kind to the wallet.
The Lotus Blossom Café adjacent to the Nine Dragons Restaurant in the China pavilion offers such delights as Beef Noodle Soup, Shrimp Fried Rice and Orange Chicken with Steamed Rice. The food is wholesome and filling with each dish coming in at under $8.
Another of our favourites is Harry Ramsden’s Fish and Chip Shop next to the United Kingdom pavilion. Here two well cooked pieces of cod complemented by steaming hot chips, a shortbread dessert and a beverage or soft drink will set you back no more than $10 a head.
A little further around Showcase Lagoon is the Mexican pavilion. If you enjoy chicken tacos, tortilla wraps and beef burritos then La Cantina De San Angel is the place to go. This little restaurant has a vibrant Latin atmosphere with excellent customer service.
All entrees cost less than $8 and they even offer a Plato del Nino for the little ones comprising a small beef burrito with tortilla chips and a small soft drink at just $3. 49.
By the side of the American Adventure pavilion is the Liberty Inn. This is typical American establishment with burgers, chicken strips and salads readily available. Desserts include the mouth watering Apple Cobbler and Mickey’s Crisped Rice Treat. A two course meal including drink costs around $12.
We have now eaten in them all and have yet to be disappointed.
