    Epcot Lunch

    My family is going to WDW Sept 8-12 for the Free Dining. We wanted to have a early and small lunch at Epcot because our dinner ADR at Restaurant Marrakesh is at 3:30pm. I was hoping for some input on the best place for either a small, good lunch that is still worth using the CS credit or a good place to split meals. I had considered Boulangerie Patisserie, but I was hoping to find out whether or not all the pastries and cakes were included as a dessert option?

    I like going to the German resturant in Germany.
    They serve bratwurst, souerkraut, and i think some dessert.
    I really enjoyed the bratwurst...it filled me up to keep me up for a couple hours.
    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for the input. I've never eaten in Germany - at either restaurant. The only problem is that I don't like sauerkraut, and I don't the rest of my family would be too keen on the other stuff they have. I had forgotten about Sommerfest, so I'm glad you mentioned it. I took a look at the menus on All Ears, but their menu doesn't really appeal to me.

    You could eat at any of the restaraunts in world showcase, my favorites are the Cantina de San Angel (the outdoor counter service restaraunt in mexico) or the yakitori house in japan

    I ate at Yakitori in May and found it quite good. If you decide to eat there, show up early as it gets crowded and there is VERY limited seating.

    Hey Hillary!!! Long time no see! Another suggestion I would have since your dinner is at 3:30 would be to save your counter service credits for that day to use on your last day at the parks and just use your snack credit to have a little something before dinner. Now....that's only if you will be sticking around to visit a park after your check out time. With the Dining Plan you get one counter service, one sit down and one snack for each night you book. So...if you are there for 5 days and 4 nights....you will only be getting credits for 4 days, but since the credits are good for you to use anyway you want from the time you check in, until midnight of the day you check out you can surely stretch them out tofeed your family the entire 5 days! Have fun! Looks like we will just be missing you!

    Great to see you, Melissa. I became very busy earlier this year and had to stop dropping by, and then yesterday, I thought, "I haven't been on DWT in a long time, I need to ask a question and check out what's going on." Living 8 hours away from WDW means that we can't go to the parks on the last day, but we do have an ADR for lunch at GF Cafe on the 12th (my grandmother's birthday- I told them that on every reservation- except for the room which I need to call them back and do). We may decide to just use a snack credit, because we want to be hungry for dinner, or we will split 2 meals between the 5 of us in Mexico. I was just thinking about trying a place that we normally wouldn't pay for. I read that the pastries in France are not included on the DDP, so we may have to make a stop in Norway.

    If we are still in Future World, we may have to try Sunshine Seasons. The only thing I have ever gotten from there is Chocolate Mousse Cake for breakfast.

    I have to agree with princessariel on the whole mexican food at Epcot. Being that I live in Mexico, I can surely tell you about mexican food, and I'm not very fond of the mexican food at Epcot.

    On the other hand, I do agree with having lunch at the Land or splitting a plate at the China pavillion, if you're over at the WS.
