Refreshment Port Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

The Refreshment Port isn’t your typical Flower and Garden booth.

This is actually a permanent Quick Service spot that you can find near the Canada pavilion.

But, just like at every other Epcot festival, during Flower & Garden there are exclusive festival menu items sold here in addition to the daily menu.

Once again, we enjoyed the Traditional Poutine, but we cannot say the same for the new Shrimp Scampi Poutine.

For some of us, we were also sad to see the plant-based poutine with sausage and peppers removed from the festival menu. Here’s hoping it returns next year.

Be sure to check our 2023 Refreshment Port must-trys, photos, full reviews, and ratings below.

Photos & Reviews

Shrimp Scampi Poutine

Shrimp scampi poutine with cheese curds, lemon-garlic cheese fondue, spinach, and artichokes. This is a new festival item for 2023.

Shrimp Scampi Poutine Refreshment Port
  • Price: $10.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 1.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Good portion, but unfortunately a whole lot of bad tasting food. Salty but bland. Weird textures.
Felicia: I love garlic and shrimp scampi, but this made my stomach turn. Awful to eat in the heat, so garlicky, and just a really funky choice for this.

Traditional Poutine

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

Traditional Poutine Refreshment Port
  • Price: $7.50
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great portions and flavors.
Heather: If there weren’t better poutine options here at previous festivals, 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.

Mighty Swell Purple Spiked Seltzer

An alcoholic seltzer with flavors of grape, boysenberries, and blackberries made by Mighty Swell in Austin, TX. This is a new item for 2023.

Mighty Swell Seltzer Refreshment Port
  • Price: $11.25
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Huge portion, slightly sweet, refreshing.
Heather: I’m hot. I’m thirsty. This is a very, very nice seltzer. I really love this flavor.
Felicia: Light and bubbly so nice when it’s hot. But tastes too much like medicine for my liking.
Allyson: Tastes like medicine. Not my thing. No thank you.

Villa Maria Earth Garden Sauvignon Blanc

An organic sauvignon blanc made by Villa Maria from Marlborough, New Zealand. This is a new item for 2023.

Sauvignon Blanc Refreshment Port
  • Price: $6.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Very light and refreshing. Not too sweet.
Heather: Not many wine options for Flower and Garden and this is honestly a good choice!
Felicia: Sauvignon Blancs from Marlborough are my favorite wines. However, this does not taste like it is a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Pretty bland.
Allyson: I’m not a wine fan and certainly don’t want to order this when it’s hot outside.

Frozen Mojito

A frozen mojito with lime, mint, and Boyd & Blair rum. This is a new item for 2023.

Frozen Mojito Refreshment Port
  • Price: $12.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Not good. Not good at all.
Heather: So darn refreshing. I really, really love the sharpness. Kind of a small portion, though.
Felicia: Whew, this is strong and tart. Super refreshing and very minty.
Allyson: Tart, refreshing, and all-around yum!
