Hanukkah at Epcot Is Getting a Whole “Latke” Tastier with a Pop-Up Jewish Deli

Trending Now


One of the best parts about the holiday season at Disney Parks is all the delicious treats. Now guests can celebrate Hanukkah at Epcot with new eats that are sure to have you exclaiming “L’chaim!”

Tucked in between the Morocco and France World Showcase Pavilions at Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays will be a new food marketplace dubbed the L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen. Here’s a sneak peek of what you can nosh on this Hanukkah as you stroll around Epcot.

Ready for lunch? This generous pastrami on rye with house-made pickles and deli mustard will definitely keep your belly full.

This potato knish with herb sour cream is not only vegetarian friendly, it’s basically one giant Jewish tater tot—or, at least that’s what you can tell the kids. It’s perfect for little hands to nosh on throughout the park.

Of course, no deli menu would be complete with out chicken and matzo ball soup. You might think soup would be a strange bet for a Disney World snack, but hey—it can get pretty chilly in Orlando at night!

Unfortunately, the New York deli-inspired menu doesn’t include latkes, but you can score a tasty egg cream (for the uninitiated, that’s chocolate milk mixed with seltzer—trust us, it tastes amazing) or a giant black and white cookie—as if you weren’t feeling zaftig enough after all those treats!

And, just for the grownups, you can wash it all down with a frosty glass of Brooklyn Brewery’s Brooklyn Lager or a swanky Blue Cosmo.

The 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, which features 12 holiday marketplaces, including the new L’Chaim! Holiday Kitchen, runs from Nov. 18 through Dec. 30.
