Take a stroll through Disney’s Epcot for The Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine Food Tour.
Celebrating its 5th anniversary this year, the Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Arts is back in from January 8- February 22, 2021. The festival is included with valid park admission at Disney’s Epcot. The admission includes the reservation for the day. Other featured festival activities to enjoy include chalk art, mural painting, drawing classes, Artist meet and greets, galleries, and art shows. The activities are perfect for the entire family.
Like every other festival, there will be food. Lots and lots of food!
The 2021 Taste of Epcot International Festival of the Arts features 18 festival booths offering food and beverages at additional cost.
The Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine
A returning festival favorite is The Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine. This culinary experience provides guests a menu (found in the back of Festival Passport provided at the entrance of the park) of beautifully crafted food. Stroll the ‘Walk’ and collect stamps to earn a complimentary festival treat. This is a fun and cost effective way (about $30 total) to sample different foods.
Featured foods on this year’s Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine include:
Festival Favorites (RED): Remy’s Ratatouille- with Eggplant, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Tomatoes, and Red Pepper Piperade.
Our Thoughts? This is a vegan option and perfect for veggie lovers.– Erica Astacio, Disney Writer for Giggles, Gobbles and Gulps
Vibrante & Vivido Food Studio (BLUE): Blue Corn Pupusa stuffed with Cheese, topped with Shredded Pork, Guajillo Árbol Chile Sauce, Cabbage Slaw, and Aji Amarillo Crema.
Our Thoughts? Our favorite! A little spicy, but the cheesy pupusa was a good balance.
The Painter’s Palate (GREEN): Pistachio Cake with Cherry Mousse and Morello Cherries
Our Thoughts? Most unique dish. The flavors combined were delicious.
Masterpiece Kitchen (PINK): Vanilla, Rose Water, and Pistachio Panna Cotta
Our Thoughts? Family favorite! If you don’t the taste of rose water, I wouldn’t recommend it.
Mosaic Canteen (ORANGE): Mouskoutchou- Orange Cake with Cinnamon-Orange Chocolate Mousse
Our Thoughts? Heard it taste just like a chocolate covered orange- PASS!
Decadent Delights (REWARD): The Artist Palette Cookie – This was the complimentary item you receive after collecting all 5 stamps (colors) on your walk.
Our thoughts? Sweet and delicious!
Here are some helpful tips if you plan on attending the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine:
- All booths featured are located in the World Showcase.
- Keep in mind you don’t have to earn all your stamps in one trip. You can plan to visit the festival another day.
- If there is an item on the menu that doesn’t sound appealing, you can substitute it with another item on the Walk menu. Don’t worry, you’ll still earn stamp for that item. (We skipped the Mouskoutchou, and bought two pupusas instead).
- If the whole menu is a miss for your crew, create your own walk by pre-selecting a few must-try items from the other festival booths.
