Mexico at Epcot

In Epcot’s global showcase, Mexico is a permanent pavilion. Because the pyramid is so visible, most people utilize Mexico as a gathering spot for loved ones. Also, if you go to the left of the International Gateway, Mexico is the first country in Epcot’s World Showcase. 

Because Mexico is a permanent presence at Epcot, the cuisine during its festivals must be spectacular. When it comes to tastes, Mexico does not disappoint!




2014 Food and Wine Festival

Nueske’s® Pepper Bacon Hash Food and Wine Festival 2014 is one of the recipes I have from the 2014 Food and Wine Festival. Epcot’s cuisine and wine menus truly stood out in 2014. What was the menu for Mexico’s 2014 food and wine festival? I had to search a little to get the 2014 menu with prices:

  • DDP Snack Eligible Shrimp Taco: Fried shrimp, pickled habanero chile, and onions on a flour tortilla – $5.50
  • On a corn tortilla, marinated rib eye, roasted chipotle salsa, and grilled scallions (gluten-free) – DDP $5.50 Eligible for a Snack
  • $3.50 DDP Snack Eligible Sweet Corn Cheesecake; Vegetarian
  • $3.75 for a bottle of Dos Equis beer
  • $6.75 for Sangria
  • $12.50 for a Tequila Flight
  • $8.50 for a mango-strawberry margarita




Sweet Corn Cheesecake

On Disney’s Mexico 2014 menu, the Sweet Corn Cheesecake was the standout. It’s a delicious Mexican delicacy composed with creamy cheesecake and sweet corn. 

The mere utterance of the phrase “cheesecake” is enough to make anybody drool. This Sweet Corn Cheesecake is a one-of-a-kind creation from Mexico. Corn is inherently sweet, so adding it to a cheesecake recipe elevates it to new heights.

This Mexican dessert was a fantastic way to expose people to Mexican food they may not have been aware of. That is what makes Epcot’s International Cuisine and Wine Festival so special; you may sample food and wine from different cultures!
