There are so many great things for adults to do at Walt Disney World that narrowing it down can be quite the task! Personally, I enjoy spending an afternoon/evening with my husband at Epcot’s World Showcase, there is a ton to do, and it is the perfect place to have a nice date night!
Drink around the world – This is an activity that will fill up most of your afternoon, as it’s meant to be something where you can take your time and really enjoy the countries and the specialty drinks that they offer. How it works is you go from country to country within the Showcase and sample the signature drink(s) that they have to offer. Mexico offers tequila/margaritas, Germany has beers, Italy has sangria, Japan serves sake, and so on. Obviously you will want to approach this with a full stomach and enough time on your hands to give each drink it’s deserved time to shine (in other words, go slowly so you don’t get sloppy!). It’s really fun, and it’s the perfect way to get to see all that the Showcase has to offer.
Places To Eat – Like I said, you will definitely want to fuel up before (and probably at some point during!) your Drink Around The World tour, and luckily there are plenty of amazing restaurants to choose from within the World Showcase. Each country has at least one sit down and one counter service eatery that showcase their country’s native dishes, and it’s a great chance to try some new and unique cuisine! Some of my favorites include the Chicken enchiladas at the San Angel Inn, the lasagna paired with a crisp sparkling wine at Tutto Italia, and any and all of the treats available at Karamell Kuche in Germany. One thing is for sure – you won’t go hungry while touring the “World” of Epcot
Soak In The Culture – Let’s say you aren’t a big drinker, and aren’t in an adventurous eating mood, fear not, as there is still plenty for you to experience at the World Showcase. Take some time at each country and take in the sights – the architecture and decor of each country are exquisite, and there are often performers singing and dancing at various times throughout the day in all the countries. There are shops in each country that sell specialty items from each country (which is a great departure from the usual Disney souvenirs sold in all other shops throughout Disney World), and are great places to pick up some unique souvenirs
Enjoy The Show – Why not finish off an amazing day with an amazing fireworks/laser light show? Illuninations: Reflections of Earth takes place around the World Showcase Lagoon, and shows us the past, present, and future of our world. The special effects are not to be missed, and you will definitely want to arrive an hour before the show to ensure you get a good viewing spot!
Epcot’s World Showcase is the perfect place for adults and couples to Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
