A Taste of the United Kingdom Without Crossing the Pond


Rose & Crown Pub & Dining Room is the table service restaurant located in the United Kingdom Pavilion of the World Showcase at Epcot. From the outside, it looks like a small pub since there is a bar located in the front of the building. To the side are gardens with views of the water but hidden behind both is a fantastic restaurant greatly overlooked.

There is a small indoor dining area but the majority of the seating is outside overlooking the lagoon and World Showcase. There is an upper and lower eating area, both covered. Not known to many is that the Rose & Crown was one of the few table service restaurants at World Showcase where you could see the evening fireworks show while dining. Make your dining reservation for 7:30 pm or later and you can enjoy it from the comfort of your table. But keep in mind that you must request an outdoor table when you check in at the podium. (Fireworks are currently suspended at this time.) 

The menu offers samplings from all over the UK. Appetizers include Scotch Egg which is a fried hardboiled egg wrapped in sausage meat with a mustard sauce, a cheese platter, soup and salad. 

Entrees include Rose & Crown’s signature dish of traditional beer battered Fish and Chips, Chicken Masala Curry and other regional favorites. Items served with the dishes vary from seasonal vegetables, to cheddar mashed potatoes and rice. You can also get side orders of Mushy Peas or traditional Bubble and Squeak.

Coronation Salad
Fish and Chips
For dessert there are once again English favorites, sticky toffee pudding or English trifle.  You really can't go wrong with either! 

Sticky Toffee Pudding

On the menu under the entrée descriptions are also drink recommendations but your server will be happy to make suggestions as well. My favorite beverage is called a Cider and Black which is an apple cider with black current juice.

*Updated September 2020. In-park dining at table-service restaurants requires a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date for each person in your party ages 3 and up. Dining reservations do not guarantee admission to the park.

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Fast Food Boulevard at Universal Studios Florida

Fast Food Boulevard is located in the Springfield section of Universal Studios Florida at Universal Orlando Resort and is a must-do for any Simpsons fan!  This home to several quick-service dining locations has something for everyone. It is a great stop that will make everyone's belly happy even if you aren't a die-hard fan. The food choices range from the famous Krusty Buger to pizza, from fried fish to salad, and even specialty non-alcoholic beverages and plenty in between. If the variety of food options wasn't enough to entice you, the theming is on point and you feel like you've walked into an episode of the Simpsons.  I especially love to sit in Moe's Tavern because it just gives me those Homer Simpson vibes and is a little smaller and out of the hustle and bustle of the main area. One of my favorite details is the mural of all the Simpsons characters on the wall, it's just amazing! And a great backdrop for a beverage or two.   At Luigi's you will find
