Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival on a Budget (Literally!)



So, funny story…my fiancé and I decided a couple weeks ago to check out Epcot’s Flower and Garden Festival.  We had been once before, of course a week early, so we didn’t have a chance to try any of the fresh food and cocktails available at the outdoor kitchens throughout the park.
I had already scoured social media and decided exactly what I wanted to try.
Just as we were about to drive through the gates of Epcot, my fiancé realized he didn’t have his wallet.  Oh no…
Oh well, it will be fine.
We parked the car, got out and began walking, heading straight towards the iconic Spaceship Earth. My anticipation was mounting.  Plus, my stomach was growling, since I hadn’t had anything to eat yet that day.  Then, that’s when it happened, I realized I didn’t have my wallet either.  I had just swapped purses (curse of a women), and I left all my credit cards in my other wallet.  What now?
Well, luckily I has some random cash stuffed in my purse pocket and my fiancé had a bit in his pocket.  Debating on whether we should turn back or not, we decided to push forward and see what $40 some odd dollars could get us.  Here’s to eating and drinking around the world on spare change.


First stop, France or Fleur de Lys.


Gnocchi Parisien a la Provencal, Macaron Guimauve a la Fraise and La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush

Then we traveled to China or Lotus House


Vegetable Spring Roll and Kung Fu Punch

And finally, the Pineapple Promenade


Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade

  And, we still had some change to spare and it was a magical afternoon.
