One of the main attractions of Epcot is the ability to have food and drink from around the world by touring the World Showcase. While dining at each pavilion on the map might be an issue, you can at least get a taste of the desserts. There are so many to choose from. These are my favorites, excluding bakery and snack items that can be desserts.
5 Best Desserts in Epcot
L’Artisan Des Glace is an Ice Cream Parlor located near the back of the pavilion. You either see it on your way to Les Halles Boulangerie or leaving Impressions De France through Les Halles. Which isn’t really fair, because you will most likely need to choose one or the other. The good news is there is no reservation needed for either of these.
L’Artisan Des Glace deserves its own special trip though. The ice cream is exquisite, but for extra indulgence, try the Ice Cream Martini. It’s a scoop of your choice of ice cream in a martini glass with whipped cream and your choice of Grand Marnier, vodka or rum.
Rose and Crown in the United Kingdom pavilion one of the all time best deserts, sticky toffee pudding. If you have one of the dining plans and visit the Rose and Crown you should definitely order this dessert. If you are thinking about making lunch or dinner plans here, it’s a really great restaurant with a lovely outside view of the lagoon. Reserve a table in advance and save room for this pudding.
Italy Pavilion is a wonderful midway stop for relaxing with some wine and/or enjoying a big meal. However, my favorite Italy stop is something you can do just passing by. The fact that you can walk up and order this makes it one of the easiest desserts to get in the World Showcase. Gelati is a stand on the outer edge of Italy next to the Germany Pavilion. The Gelato here is spectacular, but the best is Espresso Gelato “Affogato.” It’s a coffee lovers dream. Coffee Gelato is topped with fresh Italian espresso and chocolate coffee beans. That will give you the boost to finish the rest of World Showcase.
One of the more recent additions to World Showcase dining is Spice Road Table in the Morocco Pavilion. It’s a tapas restaurant with Mediterranean flavors. It’s a great place to try something a little different and exotic, which brings me to my next favorite desert, Pistachios and Saffron Custard. This unique blend of flavors reminds me of why I visit Epcot in the first place. Typically you do not need a reservation for any of the Morocco restaurants.
Le Cellier the signature steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion is known for its incredible cheddar soup and filets, but if you can make it to the dessert course they also have one of the best menus in World Showcase. Top of the list is the Chocolate Maple Yukon Bar, which is comprised of chocolate mousse, and chocolate maple ganache with a shortbread cookie crust, whisky caramel and raspberry. Before dining here keep in mind that this is the most expensive restaurant in Epcot and you will need to make a reservation in advance.
Have you had any of these desserts? Please share your favorites in the comments and let me know if I missed anything you really love.
Also, if you feel like venturing out of Epcot for dessert I recommend the Kitchen Sink at Beaches and Cream, it’s totally insane and will feed the whole family. You can also try what I consider to be the best 6 desserts at Disney World outside of Epcot.
