Refreshment Port Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Refreshment Port Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

“Once upon a time, I met a mushroom and I fell in love with it. And then I met some cheese and I fell in love with it. And then we had a baby and it was this poutine.”

If that quote from Heather doesn’t convince you to visit Refreshment Port and try the Braised Beef Poutine, who knows what will.

We continue to be fans of this special festival poutine that features French fries topped with braised beef, Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese sauce, cheese curds, and Gherkin relish. You get a huge portion for $10!

You should also try the Boulevard Brewing Co. Quirk Pineapple Orange Whip Hard Seltzer. Even Allyson who doesn’t drink seltzers or likes a creamsicle flavor enjoyed this a lot. It’s light, refreshing, and won’t make you feel bloated on those hot park days.

Similar to the Refreshment Outpost, Refreshment Port isn’t your standard Food and Wine booth.

This is a permanent Quick Service spot that you can find on the right-hand side as you walk towards Canada. It sits back a little, so keep your eyes peeled.

But, just like at every other Epcot festival, there are exclusive festival menu items sold here in addition to the daily menu (which includes traditional poutine!).

Here’s everything you need to know about the Refreshment Port festival menu, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.


  • Location: Near the Canada pavilion
  • Nearby booths: Australia, Shimmering Sips, Canada
  • Nearby seating areas: Standing tables nearby and alongside the World Showcase Lagoon
  • Not to miss in 2023: Braised Beef Poutine, Boulevard Brewing Co. Quirk Pineapple Orange Whip Hard Seltzer

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.)

Traditional Poutine

French fries topped with Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs crumbles, cheese curds, and brown gravy.

Refreshment Port Poutine
  • Price: $7.50
  • Special Diets: Gluten-friendly
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great portions and flavors.
Heather: If there wasn’t the other poutine option I’d rate this higher. I mean, it’s FINE. But the other is more fun.
Felicia: I love this. It’s available year round usually, though. So not special to the festival. Solid dish and it’s filling.

Braised Beef Poutine

French fries topped with braised beef, Boursin Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese sauce, cheese curds, and Gherkin relish.

Refreshment Port Braised Beef Poutine
  • Price: $10.00
  • Special Diets: Gluten-friendly
  • Rating: 4.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Little salty for me, was spoiled by the flavors I preferred in the traditional poutine.
Heather: I am petitioning to be an honorary Canadian after eating this. To be fair, I love me some potatoes and cheese curds. (Although ironically, I hate the word “curd”).
Felicia: Huge portion, the meat and gravy is rich and delicious. The Boursin cheese is creamy and a nice addition. Solid food and good value.

  • Price: $11.25
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.3/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Welllll…. I love a creamsicle. This is a seltzer creamsicle. It is very tasty and creamy and delicious!
Felicia: Well this is just amazing. If you like seltzers, this is a great one. Tastes like pineapple whip in seltzer form. Delicious.
Allyson: I’m not a big seltzer fan, but this is actually pretty good and refreshing. Warning: you must like pineapple to enjoy this.

Florida Orange Groves Winery Sparkling Peach

Refreshment Port Peach Wine
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Sweet – but truly not BAD. But, I would go with the seltzer if you are looking to purchase a drink from here.
Felicia: Sooooo sweet. Peach flavor is subtle and so just tastes like sugar. Not a fan.
Allyson: Peach wine? YES, PLEASE. Did not expect to like this so much.
