If you are looking for tips for drinking around the world at Epcot, you have come to the right place! Epcot has always been my favorite park, and there is so much to see all around the World Showcase that you could be there for weeks.
That being said, you aren’t here for the history, you are here because you are coming for your Epcot drink around the world experience! This ultimate guide will help you figure out just how to do that. YES there are ways and many do’s and don’ts that you should subscribe to if you are adding this activity to your Epcot itinerary!
Epcot’s “drink around the world” fame came for a good reason! It is a FUN thing for adults to do at Disney World. Epcot is an escape from the toddler rides and allows you to indulge in your adult side. The best part? There are also plenty of mocktails or drinks without alcohol so if someone in your group doesn’t drink, they can still join in the fun!
Get ready to learn the tips and tricks necessary for making your Epcot drink around the world dreams come true!
The Ultimate Guide To Drinking Around The World At Epcot
Who To Drink Around With World With
The first step is choosing your crew! You are going to want people who are FUN to drink around the world at Epcot with! You are going to want people who have some money to burn and who are open to trying different things. You are also going to want people who aren’t afraid to try some snacks too.
The drinks at Epcot are broken down into mainly beers and frozen/regular cocktails. There are some wines you can choose, but these are the main two types of drinks. If your group has a variety of drinkers in it, some who prefer beer, and some who prefer blended drinks, you will be good to go when planning your Epcot drink around the world crew.
This is what I have done when I have gone drinking around the world at Disney. Some of the group loved beer, some of the group loved cocktails, and some of the group loved everything! This allows you to not waste money in the event that somebody in your group doesn’t like something while drinking around the world at Epcot.
Finally, I caution you against drinking around the world alone or with one other person. Yes, you CAN drink around the world solo or in a duo, but I HIGHLY recommend not getting a drink at every country. It is a LOT of alcohol and the portions are actually quite massive. You don’t want to get drunk during Disney around the world drinking and make a fool out of yourself or get kicked out.
My sister and her boyfriend are huge drinkers and it was even a lot for them and we were in a party of 5. If you don’t want to wait around for around the world Epcot drinking with a group, by all means go with a smaller party, but I do caution you against getting something at every country.
The drinks are HUGE in many cases and you will be three sheets to the wind by the time you are halfway through!
Simply look through my list of suggested drinks at Epcot and then go from there on what you like the best. As I mentioned above, there are beers around the world at Epcot, cocktails, some wine, whatever you like.
Finally, I think it would be amazing to drink around the world with 11 friends! This way, each of you can buy one drink and nobody will be out too much money! A group of 5-7 people is the average size that people take to Epcot for this activity.
Average Cost Of Drinking Around The World At Epcot
The Epcot drink around the world cost varies depending on what you get and your group. If you drink around the world at every country in Epcot, you are going to be spending at least $8-$15 per drink. Of course, each person in your group must also pay to the entree fee for a ticket to Epcot as well.
Keep it mind that Disney seems to raise the prices every year, and if you are going during one of the many festivals at Epcot and are drinking from the festival carts, prices may be quite high and portions smaller than what is suggested here.
The average cost Epcot drink around the world cost ranges between $100-$120. If you are getting non-alcoholic beverages or are not drinking at every country, budget for the prices to be a little lower.
This is exactly why I recommend drinking around the world at Epcot with friends or in a larger group. If each drink costs $10, each one of you can pick up one drink and only spend $10 the entire time. Even if you split $100 total four ways, each of you is still only paying $25 and there will be PLENTY of liquor to go around!
At the end of the day, $25 a person for drinking all day at Disney is beyond reasonable and you can always add more if you want more Epcot drink around the world fun!
When I drank around the world, I spent $111.20. I got a drink from each Epcot country and I even saved a little bit based on my choice from China. I would add $5+ more if you got a drink with liquor instead of wine from China as I did.
I would say that spending $100 is on the VERY low end and assuming you get some drinks that are under $10 per country and no drinks that are over. There are a few very good drinks that are over $10 per country [for a total of $110 assuming you spent no more than $10 per country] Drinking around the world at Disney is expensive, but doesn’t have to break the bank when done correctly.
As you can see, the Epcot drink around the world cost varies widely. I will break down exactly what I bought and the best of the best drinks that you should 100% splurge on when you are drinking around the world at Epcot!
Where To Start Drinking In The Epcot World Showcase
EVERYBODY says to start at Mexico and end at Canada. This is WRONG and hear me out! If you start at Mexico, you will be saving the VERY BEST DRINKS in Epcot for the end when you are broke and super drunk.
NO! I want you to ENJOY these drinks as they are truly the best of the best and you will get to drink three of them in a row! If you start at Mexico, you will start with a huge tequila drink and while it is delicious, it is very strong and large. You will fill up and won’t be interested in the BEST drinks at Epcot.
For reference, the BEST drinks at Epcot come from France, Morrocco, and Japan. I have recommended these drinks to MANY people and they have ALL loved them. Whether you are a guy or gal or a heavy drinker or someone who hardly drinks, these are drinks that EVERYONE totally loves!
Instead, I recommend starting at Canada, where you will begin with a simple beer or wine. Then, you will head to the UK pavilion where again, you will have a beer or something similar. Beers are much lighter than blended drinks so it is a good intro to the next three drinks.
After you are done with a simple drink at Canada and the UK, you will then hit France, Morrocco, and Japan, all in a row. You will get to enjoy the BEST OF THE BEST Epcot drinks right off the bat, not after you have visited 6 prior countries and are probably ready to give up and go home.
Trust me and the many people I have recommended this to: If you are drinking around the world at Epcot, start with Canada and get ready for some of the best drinks ever! You won’t regret it!
If you start your drinking around the world journey at Mexico, I really think you will regret it! And why not save the large drink for last where you can sip it for the rest of the day?
Of course, you can plan your own Epcot drink around the world experience, but this is my insider tip to make your experience go smoothly.
What To Wear When Drinking Around The World
First, you are going to want to wear a cute drink around the world T-shirt! Etsy is filled with them and they are very popular to wear around the park to let others know that you are drinking around the world! I think this is so very cute and there are shirts for people of all styles!
Whether you are going with a gaggle of girls who love all things pretty or are heading out with the guys, there is an Epcot drink around the world shirt for everyone! Also, cast members will know you are drinking around the world and will interact with you more than normal. It is a fun and totally Disney thing to do for adults!

Next, you are going to want to get a cute drinking around the world passport! These can easily be found for cheap on Etsy and are perfect if your group isn’t into wearing matching t-shirts, which a lot of people aren’t!
This is a great way to keep track of the countries in Epcot you have tried a drink in and also shows other people and cast members what your goal is. I love the passports as you are “traveling” and it is a super cute way of showing off what you have tasted so far!
Best Drinks To Get Around The World At Epcot
Below, I will show you the very best drinks to get in Epcot! I will also include their updated prices. You will begin in Canada and go counter-clockwise around the world showcase. I will also rate based on taste, but remember, this number can vary depending on your specific interests!
Please keep in mind that your Epcot drink around the world experience is very specific to you and what you like. I have taken many people to Epcot and have suggested my favorite drinks to them, and they have always been a huge hit.
You may show up for your drinks around the world at Epcot and decide you want something else, and that is okay!
Canada-Moosehead Draft ($9.25)
The Moosehead Draft in Canada has been a fan favorite for years! I remember going to Epcot with friends almost 10 years ago and this staple beer was their favorite! If you are looking for the best drinks at Epcot, this is a good one to start with.
It is a VERY light beer so don’t expect anything dark or strong, but it is refreshing and a good way to start off your drinking around the world. It isn’t anything fantastic, but it is one of the best that Canada offers.
You can get this drink at the drink cart that is outside of the Canada pavilion.
Of course, if this isn’t the type you prefer, there are many beers around the world at Epcot and Canada has other options for you to choose from.
Taste rating: 6/10
United Kingdom-Strongbow Cider ($10)
If you want an imperial pint, it will be $10 and you can choose from a variety of ales, lagers, and stouts. Our suggestion is the Strongbow Cider. It has a lovely taste and is a family favorite that my sister and her boyfriend get every time they visit Epcot.
If you are looking for a traditional English pub ale, I recommend Boddingtons English Pub Ale which is also $10 for a pint. This is very popular in England and in the UK as a traditional pub beverage. The flavor may be interesting to some, but if you want to try a more “authentic” drink, this is the one for you!
You can get these beers inside the Rose And Crown Pub in the UK pavilion which is home to some of the best beers around the world at Epcot.
Still aren’t sure what to get? Ask the bartenders who are often from the UK which beer in Epcot you should get! They will have specific local suggestions.
Taste rating: 7.5/10
France-Orange Grand Mariner Slushie ($11.50)
This is the cream of the crop and one of my top three drinks at Epcot. If you are drinking around the world, make sure to budget for this beverage! You can’t miss it and shouldn’t do yourself that disservice. This is a drink that everyone loves, regardless of tastes!
This tasty beverage is a mix between Grand Mariner Rum, Grey Goose, and Orange Juice. It is frozen to perfection and perfect for a hot Florida day!
You can find it at the little beverage cart that is across from Chefs De France, one of the best Epcot restaurants. It isn’t hard to find and usually always has a long line because it is a fan favorite. The official name is Les Vins des Chefs de France.
Sometimes, you can find this drink in other flavors. It is truly one of the best drinks in Epcot. The blended drink that France offers is never a bad choice and I beg you to save your money for this one while drinking around the world at Epcot!
Taste rating: 10/10
Morrocco-Habibi Daiquiri ($12.95)
For whatever reason, the Habibi Daiquiri is one of the more expensive drinks at Epcot, but it is TOTALLY worth it! This is one of my top three favorite drinks at Epcot and why I recommend visiting the World Showcase in this order.
The Habibi Daquiri is frozen and comes with Rum, Strawberry, And Orange Blossom Water. It is a deep shade of red and SO good. It is one of those drinks where you can’t “taste” the liquor until it is too late. If you only want to get a few drinks at Epcot, this is one of them and you won’t regret it!
You can find the Habibi Daiquiri at the Oasis Kiosk to the left of the pavilion as you are about to exit Morrocco and head counterclockwise to Japan.
They also do a non-alcoholic version of this drink so if you are doing a “dry” version of drinking around the world at Epcot or have a mixed crew, this is a great choice for you.
Taste Rating: 10/10
Japan-Blackberry Sake Mist ($9.00)****Disney Trippers Favorite****
If I could only choose ONE DRINK to recommend at the World Showcase, this would be it. The blackberry Saki mist in the Japan pavilion is what I recommend to EVERYONE and everyone loves it. This is my top favorite drink at Epcot. The Habibi and Orange Slush are in my top three, but if I could only pick one, this is the one!
I asked the Japanese woman working there what flavor she suggested, and she said blackberry. I have never looked back since. The flavor is perfect and light and the sake is delicious. This is one of the best drinks at Epcot and is served over shaved ice that you can hear being blended right as you are ordering.
I can’t tell you how many people I have suggested this drink to who continue to rave about it, but the number is high.
You can find this fantastic creation at the Kabuki Cafe on the outside of the Japan Pavilion. Please do yourself a favor and get the Sake Mist in Blackberry as part of your Epcot drink around the world journey! I promise that you won’t regret it!
Taste Rating: 11/10 😉
America-Angry Orchard Rose Hard Cider ($9.25)
By now, you would have tried my top three favorite drinks in all of Epcot. This is the trifecta, but it is now time for a simple beer. What is more American than Angry Orchard other than a Rose Angry Orchard?
My boyfriend is a huge Angry Orchard lover and he really enjoyed this drink and said it was light and flavorful. If you can’t choose, I recommend picking a local Floridian beer to help support small businesses!
You can find this drink at Block & Hans in the America pavilion.
If you are looking for great beers around the world at Epcot, this is the place to get it. America is heavy on beer and less so on blended/liquor drinks.
Taste Rating: 6/10
Italy-Peach Bellini ($11)
If I could have an honorable mention favorite drink, it would be the peach bellini from Italy! After my top three favorite drinks in Epcot, this is my fourth. The downsides are that you have to wait forever, which is typical of even visiting Italy, and then once you get your size, it is puny for the steep $11 price tag.
This drink goes quickly. It tastes AMAZING but the size is really small. Unlike the blackberry sake or the Habibi which are larger drinks, this one is served in a champagne flute and is super tiny.
I still recommend it and think it is one of the best-tasting drinks at Epcot! It is a simple peach puree and prosecco. It was light and refreshing and the portions just weren’t big enough for the price!
If you are drinking around the world at Epcot with a larger crew, I would suggest ordering two or more of these as everyone will really only get a tiny sip. They are really good so it is sad the portion is so small compared to other options.
You can find this drink at the Gelato Stand in the Italy pavilion!
Taste Rating: 9/10
Germany-Grapefruit Beer ($10)
The Grapefruit Beer in Germany is our favorite beer in Epcot! The flavor is so unique and you will totally love it after having the peach bellini in Italy. The size is great and this is a wonderful place to stop and have a giant Bavarian pretzel with some mustard to soak up some liquor!
You can find the Grapefruit Beer at the beer cart in Germany. You can’t miss it as there is always a decent line for people looking to try it and other beers that this pavilion has to offer!
I suggest getting the giant Bavarian pretzel to go along with this beer and soak up the liquor you have had. The pretzel is bigger than your face so it is quite large and well worth the price. It is perfect for sharing with whoever you are doing your Epcot drinking with.
Taste Rating: 8.5/10
China-Plum Wine ($5.50)
The plum wine in China is a family favorite and a great way to reduce your spending if your Epcot drink around the world cost is pretty high by this point. I do recommend just a sip per person as the portion is quite small.
My sister tried the plum wine on her 21st birthday when we drank around the world in celebration, and now she has plum wine for every holiday and birthday that she hosts!
You can find the plum wine inside the Lotus Blossom Cafe which is one of the quick-service restaurants at Epcot.
If you are looking for something without alcohol, I always recommend the boba tea from the tea cart just outside the entrance to the China pavilion!
Taste rating: 7/10
Norway-Einstok White Ale ($10.75)
The Einstok White Ale is actually from Iceland, one of my favorite countries, despite being served in the Norway Pavilion. It is a typical Scandanavian Beer and one of the best choices out of your limited options from the Norway pavilion.
If there is a Epcot Festival going on, you could try a seasonal drink that will be expensive but smaller in size if you don’t like any of the offerings at the Norwegian drink cart which is where the Einstok White Ale can be found.
It is large for the price, but one of the more expensive beers at Epcot. Either way, it is a solid choice and you really can’t go wrong with this option. I have actually had this very beer in Iceland itself with Icelandic friends.
Taste Rating: 7/10
Mexico-Mango Loco Margarita-($12)
You will end your journey drinking around the world at Epcot in Mexico. There is a margarita stand that is VERY popular, and our favorite drinks from here are the Mango Loco Margarita OR the Fiesta which is a combination of the three frozen margarita flavors. It is very strong with tequila, so maybe this would be a great time to grab a quick snack of some Guac and chips.
If you are feeling adventurous on your last drink, I suggest heading inside the Mexico pavilion to the hidden La Cava De Tequelia and trying the Avocado Margarita. Yes, it sounds weird, but it is fantastic and you can’t go wrong! La Cava De Tequila is really a hidden gem around the World Showcase that you will love.
Taste rating: 8/10
Drink Around The World Final Thoughts:
If you can only choose a few drinks at Epcot, I do recommend the drinks from France, Japan, and Morrocco as these are crowd-pleasers for anyone that I bring to Epcot! Remember to have $100-$120 just for drinks alone, and don’t forget to hydrate with water. You should drink one glass of water for each drink that you try.
You should also not forget to eat! There are plenty of amazing things to eat at Epcot. My favorite thing to eat while drinking around the world is Popcorn from America, Chips and Guac from Mexico, pizza from France, and maybe even fish and chips from the UK.
There are plenty of fantastic things to eat and drink at Epcot and I know that you are going to have a fun time!
