Russ brings a topic this week.  We discuss a Gawker article that discusses dining at Epcot.Russ and Dutch also shares some thoughts from their recent trips.

Check out this episode!


  1. Perhaps the Kansas comment was intended as a shot at those of us in flyover country, but it does get at something that I definitely think is true, and that is that your enjoyment of the Epcot restaurants does depend a lot upon what is available locally. If you live in a rural area where you might have access to chain restaurants and perhaps a few other basic places, the food at Epcot is going to seem a lot more special than if you live in a large metropolitan area where you have regular access to a diverse array of international cuisine. For example, STL has a large and vibrant Italian population, so there are probably 20 places within 5 miles of my house that serve better Italian than Tutto Italia. I have family from the country, however, that think Tutto Italia is the best Italian they've ever had. I'm inclined to think that both are valid views on dining at Epcot. It's not that they are unsophisticated rubes and I have some fancy, super-refined palate, it's just a matter of what we have access to.

    With that said, I think the dining options are getting better, and Disney now has several places that are great by any standard. Flying Fish and bluezoo immediately spring to mind, but there are several others as well...
