Cheap Eats in Epcot Around the World

CHEAPEpcot

Are you a picky eater? Or a foodie who wants to try everything within your budget? Maybe you’re a vegetarian searching for the vegetable oasis in the steak-filled desert that is Disney. This is a sequel to the highly successful (and thus useful) Cheap Eats in the Magic Kingdom! While it is common to “Drink around the World” in Epcot’s World Showcase, it is really fun to put some nibbles in your tummy and literally get a “taste” of each country too! This list contains the cheapest edibles at counter-service eateries in the World Showcase. For budgets, I have tried to keep every item as close to $10 or less. The few items that are more than that are large enough to be shared. I also only put items on the list that reflect the culture of the country you are visiting! So even if a soft-serve vanilla cone is available there for only $3.99, you won’t see it on this list. Two of the options, Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar and Spice Road offer “small plates” (similar to tapas) and do require you to sit for a bit, but they are more economical than a full restaurant experience. Few of these options will make a meal on their own, so the prices are kept quite low so you can sample several items. If I missed one of your favorite “cheap” foods in a country, feel free to comment and we’ll add it to the list! I’ve started in Norway, so you can finish with margaritas…er, I mean tacos!
