Florida Fresh Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Florida Fresh Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Florida Fresh is located near Disney Traders close to the Mexico pavilion entrance.

The two savory items are new additions: Grilled Warm Lobster and a Cubanito.

The festival favorite Watermelon Salad did not make the cut for 2024. Whomp womp.

However, the Strawberry Shortcake for dessert is safe for another year.

All food and drink from Florida Fresh 2024

We really enjoyed this booth thanks to the many fresh and light options.

The Cucumber Watermelon Slush (with and without alcohol) are both fantastic choices, as well.

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)
  • Dislikes: Things that are too spicy, anything with a bone still in it, cocktails with too much whiskey or tequila (thanks to having too much fun in college), some red wines, most IPAs
  • Dietary Restrictions: Shellfish allergy

Felicia (Content Manager)

Florida Strawberry Shortcake

A shortcake topped with strawberries and served in the state of Florida. This is a Garden Graze item.

Florida Strawberry Shortcake 2024
  • Price: $5.00
  • Special Diets: Kid-Friendly
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Huge portion, crispy shortcake, light strawberry flavors.
Heather: Great potential, but the strawberry to cake ratio is WAY off – too much cake means it is just really bland. Double the strawberries and cut the shortcake in half.
Felicia: There is a lot of shortbread and it’s a little dry, but it isn’t too sweet and goes perfectly with the sweet and ripe strawberries and delicious whipped cream. So good. Only complaint is the bread being too dry.

Cucumber Watermelon Slushy

A slushy with hints of cucumber and watermelon. This slushy may also be purchased with gin.

Cucumber Watermelon Slushy 2024
  • Price: $5.00
  • Made with alcohol? No
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: This non-alcoholic version of the drink is much sweeter than the one with gin. Don’t like it much.
Heather: Both options (with and without alcohol) are very, very tasty. Refreshing – light watermelon flavor.
Felicia: Wow, loved both versions of this. Super fresh and strong watermelon flavor with just a slight hint of cucumber. So refreshing.

Cucumber Watermelon Slushy with Gin

A slushy with hints of cucumber and watermelon. This slushy may also be purchased without alcohol.

Cucumber Watermelon Slushy with Gin 2024
  • Price: $13.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Fresh, light flavor. Small portion.
Heather: Both options (with and without alcohol) are very, very tasty. Refreshing – light watermelon flavor.
Felicia: Wow, loved both versions of this. Super fresh and strong watermelon flavor with just a slight hint of cucumber. The gin is a perfect complement. So refreshing.
