What is Drinking Around the World?
Drinking around the world is one of the most fun activities at EPCOT, however it can be a bit pricey as well.
There are 11 countries in EPCOT, and along with that there are 11 drinks. This is why it's commonly referred to as 'Drinking Around the World' as you travel from country to country.
Each country is specifically designed to appropriately match the actual country, and provide guests with an authentic experience.
Everything is planned out methodically including the smallest details, such as the architecture of each country, how the food and drinks are served, the music, and even what type of cups the drinks are served in.
Before moving on to the next country, visitors must finish the drink they purchased from the previous country.
Countries in the World
- United Kingdom
- United States
Mexico and Canada are located in the front, with Mexico being on the left-hand side, while Canada is on the right.
Best Way to Drink Around the World at EPCOT
Head to Canada First.
Although most visitors will gravitate towards Mexico first, there's a better way.
Head to Canada first, and make your way around counter-clockwise after (towards the United Kingdom).
If you go to Mexico, you'll end up facing the sun all day long and it can get tiring after navigating through a few countries.
Can't Miss Drinks at Each Country

Ice Cream Martini.
Violet Sake at $9.
Tennesee Lemonade at $15.

How Much Does it Cost?
Most drinks in each of the 11 countries are in the $10 to $15 range. If you decide to purchase a drink at every country it can add up quickly.

However, something to keep in mind is this is an experience that you may only ever do once!

When is the Park Open?
Drinking around the world occurs in the World Showcase portion of the park, and they normally open around 11 am - 9 pm.
If you do the math, that's 10 hours and 11 drinks. Which means, you'll have less than an hour to down each drink if you plan to complete the drinking around the world challenge!
- There's a large lagoon in the middle of all of the countries, which provides a relaxing atmosphere, along with a perfect opportunity to take pictures!
- If you're looking for the perfect social media picture, that's the best direction to do it.
- You must be 21 years of age in order to be able to drink alcoholic beverages at the park.
- Never drink more than you're capable of!
- If you're going to take part in this ultra-popular activity, you'll want to do so with at least one other person, or a group.
