When most Walt Disney World lovers think of dining in World Showcase in Epcot, the American Pavilion is not the first place that comes to mind. After all, when you can enjoy cuisine from France or Morocco or Japan, why would you want American food?

3 Reasons to Eat at Epcot’s American Pavilion
Before you stroll past the American Pavilion on your way to eat somewhere else, take a look at why you should give it a try.
Every family is different. Some families enjoy couscous or sushi or fancy salads that are difficult to pronounce. And that’s wonderful.
But some families do not. If you have picky eaters, then the American Pavilion is the place for you.
Your first option is the Liberty Inn. This quick service restaurant offers basic options, such as burgers, hot dogs, BLTs, and fried shrimp.
Your second option is the Fife and Drum Tavern. This is an outdoor quick service stand, with options such as turkey legs, popcorn, and beverages. There are only a few choices, but they are pretty simple and safe.
