We continue from Hanami.
You’ll see the Funnel Cakes stand just past the American Adventure Pavilion on the Japan side.
During the Flower and Garden Festival, a $12 Key Lime Funnel Cake is added to the roster.
The massive Funnel Cakes are made-to-order in the tiny little hut, which can translate to a wait to order of ten-or-so minutes on busier afternoons. But it’s probably worth it. The Funnel Cakes are tried and true, incredibly crispy with a soft, pillowy interior and a fun pull-apart quality. The deep-fried dough is then dusted with a generous amount of powdered sugar and then a goofy square of dense key-lime-flavored ice cream is unwrapped and placed on top. The slab of ice cream is at least six inches long, four inches wide, and an inch thick. Graham cracker dust is then sprinkled on top with a little dollop of whipped cream for good measure. There’s no skimping on the toppings here.
I haven’t adequately captured its size, but if there’s any question, just take a peek at what others are toting around. While we’ve loved the last three or four Festival-exclusive Funnel Cakes, this one wasn’t to our tastes with an overpowering, artificial acidic tartness from the ice cream overpowering the sugary goodness of the Funnel Cake. You may like it more than we did, but I’d recommend having at least four or five people going after this thing because it’s huge.
Block & Hans is located to the left of the Funnel Cakes stand.
For years, it’s offered an assortment of very good, albeit pricey, bottles. Now, you’ll find six interesting draft beers and ciders that are among the best selections available at Epcot. With all of the picnic tables set up around the American Adventure for the Festival, it’s easy to relax and enjoy a couple of beers in the middle of the day. It’s a big upgrade.
Each draft comes in at 12 ounces and a flight of four four-ounce pours goes for $10.50. It’s a better price per ounce than the various Festival Food Studios, where you’ll receive three 4-ounce pours for $9.50 or more.
