For a look at all of Epcot’s quick service reviews, see this post.
The Popcorn Cart is located to the left of the walkway down to Le Cellier and Canada Far and Wide.

Officially known as “Popcorn in Canada,” the kiosk predominantly serves puffed corn, in addition to some of the better draft beer options available at Epcot.
Moosehead is your run-of-the-mill lager and the right choice for the Budweiser crowd. It’s light and crisp with a little bit of a grainy sweetness. It’s perfectly inoffensive.
La Fin du Monde
At 9% alcohol by volume, La Fin du Monde brings with it nearly twice the alcohol as the Moosehead, which carries a 5% ABV. The Belgian Triple is not for everyone. The flavor is heavy on the cardamom, coriander, and earthy spices, with a lot of yeast and a mild hop finish. It’s my personal go-to at Epcot, particularly given the high ABV, and a great beer to try on draft.
The Ottawa Apple is a pre-mixed concoction made with Crown Royal Whisky, Maple, Apple Infusion, and Cranberry Juice. It’s a little on the syrupy side. In addition, cast typically go a little heavier on the ice than I’d like, but the whiskey shows through the drink and the cranberry adds a fruity, sour quality to the beverage. It’s not as much of a sugar bomb as most drinks in World Showcase, which may make it attractive to those who prefer something a little less sweet. Cast also don’t serve it in a thimble-size cup, which is refreshing in its own right.
Unibroue Autre Chose Peach IPA
The Canada Popcorn Cart typically serves one or two non-draft beers. Currently, they offer the Unibroue Autre Chose Peach IPA. It brings a wonderful peach aroma that follows with vanilla and caramel notes. Personally, I’d go for the La Fin draft, but if you prefer fruity beers, this is one of the best choices at Epcot. Granted, it’s on the expensive side of things.
For a couple of years, Disney offered their Maple Popcorn at the Frontierland Popcorn Cart at Magic Kingdom. It has since moved to Canada at Epcot, which makes some sense. I was impressed by it. The sweet glaze added a nice light crispiness to each bite and the sugar factor didn’t overwhelm the flavor profile, which made it a lot more addicting to eat than your typical caramel corn, which is a lot more of a “take a bite and pass the carton” situation in my experience. The faint flavor of maple syrup lingered a bit with each bite and the smell of brown sugar and molasses made for a pleasant experience. You might pick up a carton whether you’re stopping for a drink or not.
Overall, the Canada Popcorn Cart is worth seeking out for anyone looking for a beer or snack. It’s my most common haunt.
