With the significant amount of construction currently taking place at Epcot, it doesn’t appear that there are many changes from last year’s menu items overall. However, we are looking at one new outdoor kitchen, Magnolia Terrace, that offers what seems to be a very promising menu. So let’s start there and work our way through.
Magnolia Terrace Outdoor Kitchen
The Magnolia Terrace outdoor kitchen is inspired by comfort food in the Gulf region. After reviewing the menus, I felt the most excited about trying this new booth.
Oysters are not a dish you find anywhere, and this earlier part of the year, they are prime. The menu states served with a side of Cajun butter in a way that it’s hard to imagine the dish going wrong. Except for the fact that this delicate seafood could easily be overcooked.
I guess we will have to see. This one is currently on my “will try” list. The other items sound potentially tasty as well.
|Magnolia Terrace 2020 Outdoor Kitchen Menu|
|Southern Seafood Boil: Shrimp, Mussels, Crawfish, Potatoes, Corn and Andouille Sausage||8.00|
|Grilled Oysters with Cajun Butter||7.50|
|House-made Boudin Two Ways with Spicy Mustard||5.50|
|Pecan Cake with Maple Whipped Cream featuring Burton’s Maple Syrup||4.75|
|Wild Heaven Beer Session Citrus Lager, Avondale Estates, GA||4.50|
|The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery Amber Ale, Farmville, NC||4.50|
|Parish Brewing Co. Ghost in the Machine Double I.P.A., Broussard, LA||4.50|
Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market Menus
Bauernmarkt’s outdoor kitchen is located in the Germany Pavilion of the World Showcase. Most of the outdoor kitchen menu items found here are popular at the festival. Additionally, the items here tend not to be too adventurous, making it a good stop for children with three different kid-approved things.
|Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market 2020 Outdoor Kitchen Menu|
|Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple Sauce|
|Potato Pancake with Caramelized Ham, Onions, and Herb Sour Cream||4.75|
|Toasted Pretzel Bread topped with Black Forest Ham and Melted Gruyere Cheese|
|Warm Cheese Strudel with Mixed Berries|
|M.I.A. Brewing Hugo, Doral, Fl||4.50|
|Bitburger Premium Pils, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany||4.50|
|Stiegl Brewery Radler Zitrone, Salzburg, Austria||4.50|
|Apfelschaumwein: Sparkling Wine and Apple Liqueur||10.00|
The Citrus Blossom
This Citrus Blossom debuted at the Flower and Garden Festival this past year. The 2020 menu appears to offer the same food choices. In addition, the trendy Orange Bird Sipper cup with orange cream shake returns this year. If you are familiar with that item, you might remember it sold out multiple times during last year’s festival.
I tried all of the menu items here last year, except for the crispy chicken dish. So here’s a preview of those items:
Above we have the Citrus Shortcake, which happens to be one of my favorite dessert choices at the festival.
And below is the lobster tail that was a nice treat at a reasonable price for the higher-end item. This dish came on a skewer that helps you pull the meat away from the outer shell.
Another returning item is the Tuna Tataki Bowl. It reminded me of a tostada-style dish more than anything. I enjoyed this one, but I have to admit it’s not something for everyone.
Here’s a look at the full menu:
|The Citrus Blossom Menu for 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival|
|Lobster Tail with Meyer Lemon Emulsion and Grilled Lemon |
*Listed as a Gluten-Friendly item.
|Tuna Tataki Bowl with Spicy Yuzu Glaze, Mango, Avocado and Pappadam Crisp||6.25|
|Crispy Citrus Chicken With Orange Aioli and Baby Greens|
*Listed as a Gluten-Friendly item
|Citrus Shortcake: Orange Chiffon Cake, Lemon Curd, Mandarins, Whipped Cream, and Citrus Crumble||4.50|
|Orange Cream Shake in a Souvenir Bird Sipper Cup|
|Islamorada Beer Company Coconut Key Lime Ale, Fort Pierce, FL||4.50|
|First Magnitude Brewing lemon Hefeweizen, Gainesville, FL||4.50|
|Heavy Seas Brewery TropiCannon Citrus I.P.A., Halethorpe, MD||4.50|
|Orange Sunshine Wine Slushy||6.75|
Flavor Full Kitchen Hosted by Advent Health
The Flavor Full Kitchen appears to offer a few different items in 2020 compared to last year. The Flavor Full Kitchen boasts promoting flavors from healthy cuisine. Last year I enjoyed the roasted beet dish here, but it has been replaced by a new grilled vegetable dish featuring a hummus cream and red pepper coulis.
We’ll see if the salmon dish listed remains the same as last year. It was an excellent option for anyone looking for something on the light and healthier side.
I did try the Blood-Orange Agua Fresca the previous year, and the flavor reminded me of that old-fashioned Tang drink mix. The drink was pretty popular on social media, but I didn’t feel that anything warranted a second purchase.
|Flavor Full Kitchen 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Menu|
|Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus Cream and Red Pepper Coulis|
|Seared Verlasso Salmon with Farro risotto and micro-herbs||6.25|
|Strawberry Mousse with Chocolate Crisp Pearls|
|Blood Orange Agua Fresca |
|Cookie Butter Worms and Dirt|
Fleur de Lys
The France Pavilion at Epcot is always famous. That’s a given. But add in festival time, views of the new Skyliner, and construction of the new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, and you can expect quite the crowd.
This outdoor kitchen is one you might want to target early or late in the day due to its popularity. So often, I pass by here and refuse to wait due to the length of the line.
But they have several items that do sound appealing. This will also be one of the most popular locations to pick up a frozen slushy that’s a little different from the typical offerings already available in the Pavilion.
|Fleur de Lys Outdoor Kitchen Menu in the France Pavilion|
|Tarte aux Oignons Caramelises et Chevre: Goat cheese tart with caramelized onions on a flaky pastry crust.||5.50|
|Canard Confit a l’Orange: Braised duck confit a l’Orange with mashed sweet potatoes||6.25|
|Tarte Tropezienne, Coulis Framboise: Brioche cake filled with light pastry cream and raspberry coulis||3.00|
|Eclair Chocolat Framboise: Eclair filled with raspberry and chocolate mousse||6.50|
|Kronenburg Blanc 1664||4.75|
|Very Raspberry: Rose Wine with natural raspberry flavor||5.75|
|Bordeaux, Chateau Tarin||6.00|
|La Vie en Rose Frozen Slushy: Vodka, Grey Goose l’Orange Vodka, St. Germain Liqueur, White and Red Cranberry Juice||11.75|
The Florida Fresh outdoor kitchen is typically located between the Morocco and France Pavilions in the World Showcase. Food offerings here are a play on items local to Florida. Additionally, this kitchen is where you can find the popular key lime tart with toasted meringue that’s been a hit the last couple of years.
If you are looking for a refreshing drink, I recommend trying the Watermelon Cucumber Slushy. It comes with gin on the left (above) and a non-alcoholic version on the right. As you can see, these aren’t large, but they offer somewhat of a unique flavor profile. This one is on my list for a return purchase.
Here’s a look at the rest of their 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden Menu:
|Florida Fresh Outdoor Kitchen Menu|
|Carne Guisada with Black Bean Cake and Cilantro Lime Sour Cream||6.50|
|Spicy Blackened Shrimp and Cheddar Cheese Grits with brown gravy and local sweet corn relish||7.25|
|Key Lime Tart with toasted meringue||4.75|
|Watermelon Cucumber Slushy |
|Tampa Bay Brewing Company Twisted Strawberry Fest Fruit Ale, Tampa, FL||4.50|
|Big Top Brewing Company Conch Republic Key Lime Wheat, Sarasota, FL||4.50|
|First Magnitude Brewing Co. Monarch Milk Stout, Gainesville, FL||4.50|
|Florida Orange Groves Winery Key Lime Sparkling Wine, St Petersburg, FL||12.00|
|Watermelon Cucumber Slushy with Gin||13.00|
We will have to see what the Japan Pavilion has in store for us this year after the festival begins. The Hanami menu has two new entree options, while the Frushi dessert returns. The frushi is a play on sushi, except it’s made with fruit, sweet rice, and a pink soy wrap for a fun play on color.
|Hanami Menu in the Japan Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase|
|Frushi: Strawberry, Pineapple, and Cantaloupe wrapped in sweet rice and pink soy wrap served with whipped cream drizzled berry sauce and toasted coconut.|
|Menchi Katsu Slider: Japanese-style panko breaded beef patty topped with Tonkatsu sauce, mayo, cucumber, and pickled lotus root||6.00|
|Salmon Flower Ikura: fresh-cut salmon, salmon roe, spinach, and watermelon radish, and chilled ramen tossed with poke sauce||8.25|
|Kirin Draft Beer||4.50|
|Strawberry Nigori Sake||7.50|
|Furano Martini: vodka, lavender syrup, and Yuzu juice||7.50|
Jardin de Fiestas
This outdoor kitchen is located in the Mexico Pavilion area as you exit Future World. I have to admit I haven’t tried many food items at this stop in the last few years. However, I often stop here first when venturing into the World Showcase for whatever specialty margarita item they are offering.
Now you might think that funny, considering La Cava is a few steps inside the Pavilion with many options. And Choza de Margarita hasn’t been open too long on the outskirts of Mexico with their variety of margarita choices.
But I have found fun margaritas the past few years at Jardin de Fiestas. Also, I enjoy paying a smaller price for a smaller portion in this case. And the line is usually much shorter/quicker than what you’ll find inside the pyramid.
|Jardin de Fiestas Menu|
|Chilaquiles de Pollo: Chipotle-braised chicken and tortillas served with salsa ranchera, Monterey Jack cheese, crema Mexicana, and Guajillo cheese||7.00|
|Quesadilla al Pastor: Flour tortilla filled with Monterey Jack cheese and pork Pastor topped with grilled pineapple, salsa Verda, red onion, and cilantro||7.50|
|Choriqueso Torta: Bolillo roll filled with chorizo and Monterey Jack cheese, avocado mousse, and jalapenos||7.00|
|Cruz Blanca Rose Spritz: Effervescent Rose wheat ale with Elderflower liqueur||7.00|
|Mango Mexican Lucky Margarita: Spicy Ancho Verde liqueur, 100% Agave Tequila Blanco, Mango-passion fruit puree, lime juice, Applejack, and Ginger cordial served with a Tajin chili-lime rim.||11.75|
|Rosita Margarita: Rose Petal liqueur, 100% Agave Tequila Blanco, lemon and cranberry juices served with a rose petal salt rim||12.75|
I think the Mango Mexican Lucky Margarita sounds crazy enough to go either way.
La Isla Fresca
Those looking for a bite of the Caribbean flavor will want to stop by La Isla Fresca in the World Showcase Promenade. For whatever reason, this kitchen hasn’t ever appealed to me enough to warrant a stop, but the lamb curry dish might change that this year.
|La Isla Fresca Outdoor Kitchens|
|Lamb Curry with sweet plantains and rice||6.25|
|Sugar Cane Shrimp Skewer with steamed rice and coconut lime sauce|
|Tropical Mousse Cup: Layers of passion fruit cake, coconut mousse, and a tropical glaze with fresh pineapple|
|Tropical Freeze |
|Golden Road Brewing Tart Mango Cart Wheat Ale, Los Angeles, CA||4.50|
|Tropical Freeze with Parrot Bay Mango Rum||10.00|
This outdoor kitchen is located in Epcot’s China Pavilion and is pretty well-known for offering a few unique beverage items. In addition to the individual beverage items, they are usually larger in portion size than the rest of the outdoor kitchens. So, if you are looking to try something different, this might be a good stop.
|Szechuan Spicy Red-braised beef shank over rice||8.00|
|Bon Bon Chicken Skewer with sesame and peanut sauce||6.50|
|House-made Crab and Cheese Wontons||6.00|
|“Panda” Bubble Tea: Classic Milk Tea with black and white boba pearls|
|Jasmine Draft Beer||5.00|
|Marco Boba: Amaretto, iced coffee, milk and boba||11.00|
|Kung Fu Punch: vodka, Triple Sec, mango syrup, and orange juice||10.00|
|Time Out: Bacardi Rum, peach liqueur, peach syrup, pina colada, sprite, soda water, and magic boba||11.00|
While you are visiting the new Canada Far and Wide in Circlevision film, you might find yourself looking to try a taste of the country’s offerings. The Northern Bloom is usually positioned in front of the Canada Pavilion. Here’s a look at the outdoor kitchen items:
|Northern Bloom Outdoor Kitchen Menu|
|Seared Scallops with French green beans, butter potatoes, brown butter vinaigrette, and Applewood smoked bacon. |
|Beef Tenderloin Tips, Mushroom Bordelaise sauce, whipped potatoes with garden vegetables|
|Griddled Maple Pound Cake with warm peach compote and sweet corn gelato, featuring Burton’s maple syrup|
|Maple Popcorn Shake|
|Unibroue Ephemere Apple Wheat Ale, Chambly, Quebec||5.00|
|81 Bay Brewing Apricot with Maple Syrup, Tampa, FL||4.50|
|Collective Arts Brewing Blackberry Fruit Beer, Hamilton, Ontario||5.00|
|Maple Popcorn Shake with Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky||13.00|
The Pineapple Promenade outdoor kitchen is usually between the World Showcase Plaza and Canada Pavilion. This popular booth is where you can pick up a Dole Whip treat, Frozen Violet Lemonade, and a spicy hot dog.
Make sure to stop by this one:
|Pineapple Promenade Outdoor Kitchen Menus for 2020|
|Spicy Hot Dog with Pineapple Chutney and Plantain Chips||8.00|
|Mixed Berry Buttermilk Cake||5.00|
|DOLE Whip |
|Frozen Dessert Violet Lemonade|

|Playlinda Brewing Company Violet Lemonade Ale, Titusville, FL||4.50|
|Florida Orange Groves Winery Sparkling Pineapple Wine, St. Petersburg, FL||12.00|
|DOLE Whip with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum||12.00|
|Pineapple Beer Flight||9.50|
Italy. According to the menu, these items are ALL kid-approved. This is one of those instances where I think that might be a stretch. The Italy Pavilion offers some of the best dining around at Via Napoli. That’s probably where I would go if I wanted an Italian meal. We’ll see how this year’s outdoor kitchen pans out in a few weeks.
Warning–that Italian Margarita has been a complete sugar bomb in the past.
|Primavera Outdoor Kitchen Menu for the Italy Pavilion|
|La Regina “Margherita”: Rustic Italian flatbread, vine-ripened tomatoes whole-milk mozzarella, parmesan, and basil |
|Ravioli: Grilled chicken ravioli with spring vegetables and creamy pesto sauce|
|Zeppole: Ricotta cheese fritters, powdered sugar, raspberry sauce, and chocolate-hazelnut drizzle|
|Peroni Nastro Azzurro Pilsner||5.50|
|Pinot Grigio, Santa Marina||9.00|
|Prosecco, Villa Sandi||10.00|
|Moscato, Fior d’Arancio Montegrande||10.00|
|Frozen Italian Margarita with Limoncello and Tequila||10.00|
Taste of Marrakesh
Taste of Marrakesh was perhaps, one of my favorite booths until this last year’s Food and Wine Festival. But it looks to be promising again at this year’s Flower and Garden Festival.
The chicken kebab returns, and while not listed, I think this is one of the more kid-friendly items. It’s chicken on a stick. Maybe they believe the skewer is dangerous, but you can easily slide it off and eat it with a fork. Kids tend to have unsophisticated palates, and the kebab is a good yet solid dish.
I also really enjoyed the Desert Rose with a splash of pomegranate here. It’s a nice size, and I found it very refreshing on a warm day.
|Outdoor Kitchen Menu for Taste of Marrakesh at 2020 Epcot Flower and Garden|
|Harissa Chicken Kebab with dried fruit couscous salad and cilantro oil||8.00|
|Fried Cauliflower with capers, garlic parsley, and chili ranch sauce||7.00|
|Walnut Honey Baklava||4.50|
|Larroque Chardonnay, Meknes||6.00|
|Desert Rose: Sparkling wine topped with pomegranate liqueur||9.00|
The baklava is also a real treat. Hopefully, it will remain just as tasty this year.
Trowel and Trellis Hosted by Impossible Foods
My intention last year was to get around to the Trowel and Trellis outdoor kitchen, but it just never happened. This is the kitchen that offers a plant-based menu, and two of the items are listed as gluten-free.
If you have any allergies or concerns about gluten-free items, I would specifically look at the menu list at each outdoor kitchen. In addition, there should be a book listing all ingredients and any cross-contamination issues at each booth.
I have a family member that deals with severe food allergies, and in his case, he does not participate in any food items at any of the festivals. We have had good luck with some beverages, though.
|2020 Outdoor Kitchen Menu for Trowel & Trellis|
|Grilled street corn on the cob with savory garlic spread|
|Impossible Farmhouse Meatball with lentil bread, spinach, marinated vegetables, and creamy herb dressing|
|Chocolate Pudding Terrarium with avocado cream, matcha crumble, and baby herbs|
|Blooomin’ Blueberry Lemon and Ginger Tea featuring Twinings of London|
|Playalinda Brewing Company Tropical Wonderland Wheat Ale, Titusville, FL||4.50|
|Bloomin’ Blueberry Lemon and Ginger Tea featuring Twinings of London with Tito’s Handmade Vodka served in a Mason jar.||15.50|
The Honey Bee-stro Hosted by National Honey Board
This outdoor kitchen is another one of those “must try” if you haven’t had a chance to experience it before. According to the menu, the previously offered items are returning. And there’s no wonder why they’ve all been successful dishes.
Below is my cauliflower dish from two years prior, and I remember that I ordered it on multiple occasions because it’s delicious.
Another dish I have consumed on more than one account is this honey-mascarpone cheesecake. It’s yummy and comes with a few excellent accompaniments that help classify it as an over-the-top kind of dessert.
These dishes would go on my list if I weren’t on the market to try new items this year. And that’s also why I’m adding the chicken flatbread below to my list.
|Honey Bee-stro Outdoor Kitchen Menu|
|Roasted Cauliflower with buckwheat honey carrot puree, wild rice pilaf, asparagus, honey blistered grapes, sunflower brittle, and coriander flowers|
|Honey Tandoori Chicken Flatbread with white cheddar cheese, charred vegetables, clover honey sour cream, and micro citrus greens||5.75|
|Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with Orange Blossom Honey ice cream garnished with fennel pollen meringue kisses |
|Honey-Peach Freeze in a souvenir Spike the Bee sipper cup|
|B. Nektar New Wave Lemonade Mead, Ferndale, MI||5.00|
|Florida Orange Groves Winery Orange Blossom Honey Wine, St Petersburg, FL||6.00|
|Honey-Peach Freeze with Blueberry Vodka||12.00|
Joffrey’s Specialty Offerings by Coffee Cart
Rarely do I stop at any of these for a drink or frozen concoction. But they are here if you please:
|Joffrey Coffee and Tea Carts:||Price:|
|Future World Coffee Cart:|
|Spring Berry Bliss: Frozen strawberry and coconut syrup topped with raspberry vodka|
|Port of Entry Coffee Cart:|
|Passion Flower: Frozen passion fruit and tea infused with lemon vodka|
|American Adventure Coffee Cart:|
|Tropical Breeze: Frozen lemon, coconut syrup, and pineapple rum|
|Canada Coffee Cart:|

Extra Items by Location
Every festival brings a couple of new featured items at some year-round locations. I’m sure they have to attract business, considering the loss of regular food/beverage sales to the outdoor kitchens.
Here are the ones available for this year:
|Block and Hans Items:||Price:|
|Arendelle Aqua Lemonade: Frozen lemonade with Monin cotton candy|
|Redstone Meadery Black Raspberry Nectar, Boulder, CO|
|Arendelle Aqua Lemonade: Frozen lemonade served with Monin cotton candy and Ole Smoky Blackberry Moonshine|
|Cool Wash Near Test Track Items:||Price:|

As you can see, there will be plenty to choose from menu-wise at the 2020 Flower and Garden Festival. Make sure to bookmark this page on your phone for an easy way to reference the menu while you are in the parks. Once I collect the prices, I’ll add them to each menu.
Also, I recommend making a list in advance of items you are interested in trying and keeping it on your phone. This is a great way to remember anything you want to try, souvenirs you wish to pick up, etc.
Additionally, you might consider planning a few dining reservations. You can preview all of our Disney Restaurant Reviews. You might also enjoy our character dining guide or the list of the best restaurants at Disney Springs.
