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.

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details. As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner.

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic

Lumiere's on the Disney Magic is the upscale and elegant of the bunch when it comes to Main Dining Rooms.  As you'd expect being themed off a movie based in France, the menu is French inspired and this is where you will find some of the "fancier" food to give a try!  Lumiere's is located midship on Deck Three off the main atrium.  There are two entrances, the main entrance is off the atrium and the one from the hallway around the side is accessible and often used when there is an event or activity in the atrium.  Lumiere's is often also open for other meals throughout the day, and has a more standard menu when this is the case. Main entrance from the atrium While French food can be intimidating, Disney does a great job making the menu approachable and still a bit familiar while working in some French influence and flavors.  If you are still a little weary of escargot, one of the best things about a Disney Cruise is that if you don't like something, t
