The Painter’s Palate Food Studio is located inside the Odyssey building which doubles as the Festival Showplace for this year’s Festival of the Arts.
The Trio of Doughnuts returns with different fillings, while we lose the lackluster Margherita Flatbread and gain a new Trio of Hors d’Oeuvres. The Popcorn Pairing Flight is also new.
Pop Eats appears in front of the Mexico Pavilion this year.
We started inside the Festival Center and ended up passing the Studio on our first walk around. If you take the same path that goes by the Odyssey building, then you’ll need to take a right and walk a short distance to the kiosk. Those heading into Mexico from the main drag will see Pop Eats on the left.Continue reading “Review: Pop Eats Food Studio 2018 Epcot Festival of the Arts”
Decadent Delights takes over the Promenade Refreshments kiosk for a second year in a row for the Festival of the Arts.
It’s a similar idea for the most part, though the first two desserts see substantial differences in the menu description and output. The Neapolitan Beer Flight also moves over here and the Courvoisier and Cherry Heering Liqueur are deemed less delightful this year, while the Port returns.
The James Harrison of this year’s Festival of the Arts switches to the Canada side this year.
We also see a name change as a similar menu was offered last year under “E=AT^2 Food.”
The Masterpiece Kitchen moves into the log cabin in Canada for this year’s Festival of the Arts. It was closer to Rose & Crown last year. BREAKING, I know.
The food offerings are virtually identical in price and description to last year. It’s unfortunate that, unlike virtually every other food item at the Festival, none of these are included as snack credits on the Disney Dining Plan. I’m not sure why that would be as you’re able to use snack credits for items like the $12 Salmon in Italy, $9 Spiced Beef in Morocco, ~$11 Tacos in Mexico, etc. So it doesn’t seem like price is the concern, though the Charcuterie is the most expensive food item at the Festival.
