A peek at Epcot’s Karamell-Küche

Entrance to Karamell-Kuche at EpcotI’m very happy to introduce this next guest blog. A few week’s ago I posted a video from Disney Parks that takes a sneak peek inside Karamell-Küche, or caramel kitchen, at Epcot’s Germany pavilion in World Showcase. This is the only free-standing shop for Werther’s, which is run by Storck.

My husband’s cousin, Ronna Larsen, just returned from a trip at Walt Disney World. She has some great photos and a quick review of this new destination!

Take it away, Ronna!

Before you even walk into Karamelle-Küche (The Caramel Kitchen), in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot, you are entranced by the sweet smell of caramel corn being made. Besides caramel corn, you can watch chocolate/caramel-dipped strawberries and a variety of caramel apples being made.

Sneak peek: Disney’s La Hacienda de San Angel

Cocktails at La Hacienda

Margaritas are served to cast members during a preview at La Hacienda de San Angel. The restaurant opens soon at Epcot at Walt Disney World.

Epcot’s latest dining hot spot is opening soon. Cast members (and a few lucky guests) were able to sample Mexican treats from La Hacienda de San Angel recently and the Orlando Sentinel was there to snap pix.

An extension of La Cantina de San Angel, a quick service restaurant on the banks of World Showcase Lagoon, La Hacienda is a sit-down, dinner-only location from 4 p.m. to park close. The restaurant will seat 250 and will be the PERFECT spot for viewing Illuminations. My friends over at DisneyFoodBlog have heard that all the chairs in the restaurant face the waterfront so you can catch a glimpse of the laser and light spectacular. The menu consists of queso fundido (warm cheese with peppers and spicy chorizo sausage), tacos, roasted meats and shrimp, black bean soup, chocolate churros and fruit empanadas. Oh …and margaritas.
