Though the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is still in full swing, other dining locations throughout Epcot have gotten menu refreshes and seasonal item updates just in time for fall.
Some of these new items are permanent menu changes, but some are only going to last through the end of fall, so if you want to try all of these new bites, you’ll have to head out to the park soon!
1. French Dip Burger at the Electric Umbrella ($10.99)
Walt Disney World has its fair hare of burgers at its various theme parks, but its new French Dip Burger has to be one of the best at a quick service location. Though the patty is the almost park-standard 1/3 pound Angus beef patty, this burger is topped with juicy beef brisket that has been marinated in French dip beef broth sauce. The burger is also topped with muenster cheese and crispy onion straws.
Though the French Dip Burger is one of the more expensive quick service options at $10.99, the portion size is fairly good, and the taste certainly beats the more standard bacon cheeseburger that you can find at other quick service restaurants.
2. Sausage and Pepper Sandwich at the Electric Umbrella ($9.49)
This is another new menu offering at Epcot’s Electric Umbrella quick service restaurant. The Sausage and Pepper sandwhich features meatball-shaped Italian sausage chunks, a variety of sautéed peppers and smothered in mozzarella cheese. The meaty filling of this submarine-style sandwich is a bit spicy thanks to a few roasted red peppers, but the flavor isn’t overwhelmingly hot. Though the bread is a little flat, on the whole the sandwich is a great option for those who want something a little different.
3. Red White and Blue Salad at the Liberty Inn ($7.99)
If you’re craving something light but still very flavorful, the Liberty Inn quick service location at the American Adventure pavilion has a great new menu item. The red, white and blue salad features a generous helping of field greens and is topped with chopped apples, pecans, blue cheese, and dried cranberries, and is dressed with a light sherry vinaigrette.
While the portion size isn’t the most generous I’ve seen for a salad at Walt Disney World, this dish still manages to be very flavorful and is a great choice for those who might want a vegetarian option beyond the Veggie Sandwich that has been a recent staple at so many quick service. Though its $8 price tag is a little steep considering the portion size and ingredients, the Red, White and Blue Salad is still a tasty addition to the Liberty Inn quick service location.
