Flights tend to be one of my favorite beverage experiences, because I love trying multiple drinks! It’s a great way to find out what you like, find out what you want your next drink to be, or simply to enjoy an awesome sampling of beverages. Walt Disney World, especially Epcot, is full of great drink flights, and these below are not all of them!
Note: As with flights or anything alcoholic, make sure to know your limits, eat plenty of food, and drink a lot of water.
9. Crisp Italian Whites Flight, Epcot – Tutto Gusto Wine Bar in Italy
This flight consists of a Sauvignon Bosco del Merlo, a Juti Lison Classico Bosco del Merlo, and a Pinot Bianco Montegrande. My favorite was by far the first. It was refreshing with apple and citrus notes. The second was mild and light and the third I would argue was on the verge of port tasting or dessert. The first two were crisp, the third not as much. The atmosphere at Tutto Gusto is phenomenal; it feels like a hidden cavern. It is the perfect place for sipping a flight or a glass of wine. They have great appetizers, meals, and desserts. The wine flights at Tutto Gusto range from $14-$18. While it’s not the cheapest for flights, the good pours and atmosphere make it worth it.
8. Sake Flight, Epcot – Outdoor Sake Bar in Japan
This was actually my first time trying sake, and I was not sure what to expect. I liked it a lot! Besides being a fun and different experience, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the sake was quite good. The first sake goes by the name of Denshin Junmai Yuki, or “Snow” (15% ABV), and was the driest. The second, called Mu Junmai DaiGinjyo, or “Tranquility” (16% ABV), was dry and the highest quality sake they had. The third, called Sho Chiku Bai (15% ABV), was the sweetest sake, almost dessert-like. It totals 6 oz., whereas the normal sake pour is 5 oz.
7. Imperial Beer Flight, Epcot – Rose and Crown Pub in the U.K.
This is a very crisp, refreshing beer flight. You get 5 – 5 oz. pours, one each of Bass, Harp, Strongbow (cider), Boddingtons, and Guinness. The Rose and Crown is a wonderful place to hang out and is meant to feel like an English pub. If you are drinking around the World Showcase, this would be a great flight to split.
6. Tequila Flight, Epcot – La Cava de Tequila
The tequila flight includes three mini-shots of tequila – Casa Noble Organic Blanco, Milagro Select Barrel Reposado, and Ambhar Añejo. It also comes with a tomato shooter, which was really fun. Each tequila shot was smooth and a little different from one other.
5. Wines of France Red Flight, Epcot – Les Vins de France in France
Les Vins de France is located in the building between Impressions of France and Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie. It is also a souvenir shop and there is not really a place to sit inside, so you will likely want to take the flight to a table or bench right outside.

The red flight included a Beaujolais, Pinot Noir, and Côtes du Rhône, and you receive a 2 oz. pour of each. The 1st, the Beaujolais, is served cold and was very nice and refreshing, especially for a red wine. The Pinot Noir was my favorite, a light and very drinkable red.
4. Martini Flight of the Stars, Hollywood Studios – The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge
I am a big martini fan so this was right up my alley! It consists of a Grey Goose and dry vermouth martini, a Bombay Sapphire Gin and Dry Vermouth Martini, and a Ketel One Citroen Vodka, Pomegranate Liqueur, and cranberry juice martini. Less refreshing on a hot day than the margarita flight there (see #1), but delicious nonetheless!
3. German White Wine Flight, Epcot – Weinkeller in Germany
If you prefer sweeter wine, this is the flight for you! There are 3 German Rieslings – Undone Dry Riesling (crisp, citrusy, similar to a Sauvignon Blanc), Schloss Vollrads Estate Qualistätswein Riesling (think mangos and peaches), and Selbach-Oster Riesling Spätlese (fruity and refreshing).
2. Wines of France Light Flight, Epcot – Les Vins de France in France
This was a great flight that included a fantastic Rosé, French Reisling, and Vouvray. Like the red flight from Les Vins de France, you receive a 2 oz. pour of each. You can find a nice table right outside the wine shop and enjoy!
1. “Citizens Take Flight” Margarita Flight, Hollywood Studios – The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge
This flight is my all time favorite! It is perfect for a hot Florida day. You are served 3 refreshing margaritas on the outdoor patio (also available in the Hollywood Brown Derby) – Derby (traditional), Mango, and Pomegranate. SO refreshing!
