    We are visiting Epcot just for the day (upcoming). Is it suggested we making a lunch reservation prior to our arrival?

    Hi there, Cindy! I am so glad you came to planDisney with your question about visiting EPCOT! 

    You are going to EPCOT at the perfect time. Currently, the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival is happening, and there is something for everyone. I would not worry about making a lunch reservation, as you can pick up a Festival Passport upon entering the theme park for the day and plan your culinary journey. Portions are large enough to share, but small enough to not fill you up, so you can try many new and interesting eats. 

    A couple of my favorites from my recent trip were Warm Raclette Swiss Cheese from The Alps (around Germany in the World Showcase), Crispy Pork Belly from Brazil (near Port of Entry in World Showcase), and The Corned Beef Corner Route from Flavors from Fire (near Test Track). We visited EPCOT on several of our days and ate very well. 

    Be sure to stay until dark to enjoy the new Harmonious show in the middle of World Showcase Lagoon. There is also Beacons of Magic happening after Harmonious on Spaceship Earth. The colors and lights on Spaceship Earth change about every 15 minutes. 

    I hope this helps with planning your visit to EPCOT in less than a week, Cindy. Have a wonderful trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Happy Eating,
