It’s been a big year at Walt Disney World as they celebrate their 50th anniversary, but starting in October, EPCOT gets its own little celebration. Back in 1982, EPCOT opened its doors for the first time. Since then, guests have been able to drink around the world and even fly through space on the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. Since it wouldn’t be a proper EPCOT party without some snacks, Disney is serving up some EPCOT 40th anniversary food that’s just as colorful as it is delicious.

Disney fans know that EPCOT is the park for foodies. Throughout the year, they host different food and wine festivals with tons of booths featuring cuisine from around the world. While Mickey pretzels and Dole Whip are some must-have snacks for any Disney World trip, if you really want to eat, EPCOT is the place to do it. This is where you can find some of the best and underrated Walt Disney World snacks, and their menu for EPCOT’s 40th anniversary does not disappoint.

Taking a lot of inspiration from EPCOT’s mascot Figment from the Journey Into Imagination With Figment attraction, the EPCOT 40th anniversary treats are super vibrant and will spark your tastebuds with excitement. Located throughout the park, you’ll need to journey around the World Showcase if you’d like to try everything from this list of Epcot 40th anniversary food.

From Sept. 30 to Oct. 3, Connections Cafe will be celebrating the 40th with a speciality waffle that has colorful sprinkles and a white chocolate EPCOT garnish. You’ll love this a waffle lot.

The La Hacienda de San Angel and San Angel Inn will both have this 40th anniversary flan on their menus starting Sept. 30, while supplies last. What makes this vanilla custard with blueberries and whipped cream so Insta-worthy is the “MEXICO 40” white chocolate piece that comes with it. After taking a bite, you’ll be a big flan.

At the Nine Dragons Restaurant starting Sept. 30 through Oct. 3, you can order this Dan Dan Noodles dish. Just be aware, it’s a little spicy with pork, Sichuan sauce, peanut butter, sesame, shredded cucumber, and green onion. It’s the perfect lunch to enjoy if you’re drinking around the world or just looking for something savory in between all your Disney World treats.

One of the newest restaurants at EPCOT is the Space 220 Restaurant, which makes you feel like you’ve been launched into space for a meal. It totally has Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century vibes and a fun menu to match.

While it may be new to the park, Space 220 is also celebrating EPCOT’s 40th anniversary with a new menu item. The Crema Catalana dessert is a vanilla cream custard with lemon snow on top and citrus segments and spicy ginger crumble to really make it pop.

Figment Sponge Cake

Probably the most Insta-worthy of all the EPCOT 40th anniversary menu items is this Figment-inspired sponge cake. It’s a rainbow sponge cake with a honey-lime mousse, and it looks just like the adorable purple dragon with his orange wings on top. You’ll be able to find this at the Sunshine Seasons in The Land starting Sept. 30 through Oct. 3.

Japan has some of the best food in all of EPCOT, which is why it’s great to plan your day around having lunch there. You may even want to reserve a table at Tokyo Dining, which will have this special celebration sushi bowl available for the 40th anniversary from Sept. 30 through Oct. 3.

In addition to your sushi bowl, order a EPCOT 40th Saketini. This purple cocktail was available when EPCOT first opened the Japan Pavilion, and it’s back for a limited time. The gorgeous color of the drink comes from the mix of sake and butterfly pea flower.
