The Best Items Under $5 at The EPCOT Food & Wine Festival

Let’s face it — the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival can get pricey.

EPCOT Food and Wine Festival Passport

Although the prices of dishes might seem inexpensive on menus, the portion sizes are generally smaller, meaning you’ll want to eat more, and the next thing you know, you’ve blown your festival budget out of the water (but, hey, it’s okay — it happens). But there are some great festival eats that really ARE super cheap — under $5 to be exact — and we’re going to tell you about the best of them!

Apple Crumble Tart from Appleseed Orchard

Okay, you can grab the Apple Crumble Tart over in Canada at the Appleseed Orchard food booth (which is INSIDE with air conditioning!). This little snack has been a favorite of ours in the past, and this year’s is just as good! There are REAL apple chunks inside the delicious filling and the pastry shell is perfect.

It’s topped off with a cinnamon sugar crumble that just adds another layer of deliciousness. Even better? It’s only $4.75.

Lamington from Australia

Over at the Australia booth, there’s a cake called Lamington that we also love to get. It’s a Yellow cake with raspberry filling dipped in chocolate and coconut. This is a dense cake with a good portion size. It’s also super moist.


Most importantly, it is shareable and at just $4.50 per slice, which makes it a good value, too!

Pão de Queijo from Brazil

How about something savory? The Pão de Queijo at the Brazil booth is also a favorite of ours. It’s Brazilian Cheese Bread. Need we say more? Cheesy bread, y’all. It’s SO packed with cheese that it’s also gooey — nothing gets better than that.

Pao de Queijo

It’s also gluten-free! Who knew? You can get it for $4.75.

Crispy Barbecued Pork Rinds from The Swanky Saucy Swine

Okay, we will warn you about this snack — it’s spicy. BUT if you like spicy, you’ll have to grab it. It’s Crispy Barbecued Pork Rinds with pimento cheese from The Swanky Saucy Swine. These are DELICIOUS, y’all. The dip is also a little smoky.

Pimento cheese and pork rinds

This is also a gluten-free dish. Grab it for $4.75. It’s also part of Emilie’s Fromage Montage, AKA the cheese crawl!

Strawberry Freeze from Earth Eats

Need a refreshing drink? Because we sure did when we headed over to the Earth Eats booth to try the Strawberry FreezeThe non-alcoholic version of this drink is made with Twinings Lemon & Ginger Herbal Tea and it’s exactly what you need to cool down on a hot day.

Strawberry Freeze

Here’s the thing — we think even people who don’t like herbal teas will love this one, so be sure to try it out for $4.50.

Spanakopita from Greece

The Spanakopita from Greece is another of our favorites. It’s a savory pastry with a filling of spinach and cheese (you KNOW how we feel about cheese). It’s ooey gooey on the inside with that little bit of fluffy pastry on the outside — we’re drooling just thinking about it again!


So head on over to Greece and grab it for $4.75.

Carrot Cake from Hops and Barley

The Freshly Baked Carrot Cake with cream cheese icing from Hops and Barley is a classic just done right and is a must for fans of carrot cake. The cake is SO moist and you can taste the carrots and nuts in it. That cream cheese icing, though? It’s SUPER creamy and just sweet enough.

Maple Cheesecake from Refreshment Port

The Maple Cheesecake is one of those snacks that has us running to whatever booth has it. This year it’s at Refreshment Port and it’s made with whipped maple bourbon cheese and candied pecans. We learned this year that this is one dessert that actually holds up well in the heat, so you don’t have to worry about having a liquid cheesecake to drink.

It’s also just delicious and has that REAL maple syrup flavor. The crust is made with ladyfingers, keeping it light. The candied pecans on top add just another dimension of flavor and crunch. It’s available for $4.50.

Guava Mousse at Shimmering Sips

The mimosas may be the star of the Shimmering Sips booth, but we loved the new Guava Mousse this year!

Guava Mousse

It’s very sweet and has a nice tropical flavor — there was also a great depth in the flavors of this treat. So if you’re in the mood for some sweets, you can the plant-based mousse for $4.75.

Griddled Cheese from Greece

This was our pick for controversial best of the fest this year, but we’ve gotta shout out the Griddled Cheese with Pistachios and Honey from the Greece booth!

Griddled Cheese

For only $4.75, you can decide if this is the dish for you. This has been on best of the fest lists in the past, but one of our reporters was not impressed this year!
