Fun Stuff: Epcot Drink Around the World Game



This is on many college program list. So, I decided to give this game it's own post! I personally have been waiting to do this for a long time. During my last program, I was under 21 so things were not as fun! I missed out on this great challenge. I prepared this time around and I cannot wait!

RESOURCES & PRICING


First research the price of each drink, you will need around $200.00 minimum to try at least 1-2 drinks every pavilion in the EPCOT World Showcase.

Start here: http://www.partythroughtheparks.com/epcot_navigation/ - The have drink prices, reviews, photos and recommendations.

Definitely read this - http://www.easywdw.com/adults/drink-around-the-world-at-epcot-world-showcase-disney-world/ - They offer the best advice.

There is also world showcase wine around the world, hats around the world, passport stamps, pin collecting, eating around the world, etc.

PRO TIPS:


Please keep in mind this effort is harder than it appears.

  1. Epcot opens earlier than the World Showcase. Park Hours: http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/calendars/
  2. Pace yourself — you will have more than enough time to make it through all 11 countries. Relax, and use your drinking time to explore each pavilion properly
  3. Drink A LOT water, bring a water bottle with you. The Florida heat may end you trip around the world very early.
  4. You might be tempted, but don’t mix your alcohols.
  5. Drink responsibility. If you don’t take public transportation, definitely find a designated driver or note a local cab service.
  6. Download app from Itunes/Google Play Store for restaurants menus, snack carts menus, etc. 
  7. Get passports for Cast Members from each country to stamp. Try to collect things, get creative.
  8. Have fun, but don’t infringe on the fun of guests - you are still a cast member. This is especially true later in the journey when things can get out of hand.
  9. Travelling clockwise, from Mexico to Canada, is preferred over travelling counter-clockwise. Starting off strong with Tequila and finishing off with beer in Canada.
  10.  A good rule of thumb is to start out with nachos in Mexico, have an eggroll/pork bun in China, pretzel in Germany, sushi in Japan, and pastries/breads in France.
