Who’s YOUR Favorite Epcot Entertainer? [Poll]

Not to skew the vote, but these guys are always phenomenal.  I can’t think of any occasion where I didn’t stop to watch their act if it was in progress as I strolled through World Showcase.

Having said that, from acrobats to jugglers, and musicians to drummers, Epcot is awash in great entertainment.  What do you think about the park’s options?  Leave a comment and let us know!

In the meantime, please take a few seconds to VOTE in the poll below.  Which of these three (3) Epcot acts would you rate as your favorite performers?  I’ll publish the overall winner next week!

Who LOVES School? Er, I Mean, Who Loves School Bread?!

Somewhat polarizing – no, not everyone loves (or even likes) this – but mostly revered, Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in Epcot’s Norway Pavilion is the home to this guilty pleasure.

A sweet roll filled with custard, draped in icing, and dipped in Coconut, some think that this delectable dessert is overly dry from the first bite.  Oh, the custard is tasty, they say, but doesn’t Epcot provide better snacks?  See …

The School Bread in Norway is Overrated.  Here are 7 Other Epcot Desserts That Are Better

Other non-fans call out the bread’s calories as being not worth the item’s hype.  Allegedly the owner of 35+ grams of sugar, according to one web site, it hits the list of …

The Unhealthiest Foods at Disney Parks

Huh?  OK.  So, maybe it’s dry sometimes.  Maybe there are equally good (or better?) snacks in Disney.  It undoubtedly does carry a diet-busting price within its custard-y goodness.

My opinion?  Maybe not on every visit to Epcot, but certainly, once in a while, you have to enjoy a serving of, what has to be, one of the best (and most unique) desserts in Disney.  Plus, at $3.99, it’s a bargain!

What do you think, folks?  Is Norway’s School Bread overrated?  Is it worth the calories?  Are there better things at Epcot – or even in Norway – to try?  Leave a comment and let us know!

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Beef Brisket Burnt Ends and Smoked Pork Belly Slider – THE SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews (The American Adventure)

This item debuted last year, where I said … “Boy, does this have a lot going on!  Brisket burnt ends.  Pork belly.  All of that skewered by a tasty piece of sausage.  Wow!  You get an A+ for creativity, Smokehouse!”

Well, I’ll say this … it still has a lot going on.  It’s quite top-heavy, so it’s hard to keep upright as you walk to a table, but who cares?  It is fantastic!  The collection of tastes are phenomenal.  The portion is generous.  This dish was the All in WDW 2019 “Food” & Garden champion!

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple Sauce – Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany)

Back to Germany, you can’t argue with two pancakes, now, can you?  Although the ‘cakes, themselves, were very well-prepared, I felt that they needed a healthy pinch of salt … just to balance the sweetness of the apples.  Other than that, I’d recommend this dish.

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Japanese-style Fried Chicken on Shredded Cabbage – Hanami (Japan)

Had this one on a whim … and as a result of the fact that Hanami had no line at the particular time I walked past.  Lines were off the charts for most of the day I visited, by the way.

As for the dish … well, maybe it was one of the reasons for the absence of a line.  Much too simple of a preparation, it was quite overdone.  Overall, it was a big disappointment.  Pass it by, folks.
