5 Things You Will Love About Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room

Named after the two most common words in British pub names (“rose” and “crown”), this restaurant and pub is a slice of England in sunny Florida.

Rose and Crown hides in plain sight, situated right on World Showcase promenade. Chances are, you’ve walked right past it, not even knowing the awesome-ness you’re missing out on. Well, I’m here to tell you why Rose and Crown should be one of your Advanced Dining Reservations on your next Walt Disney World vacation. The hostess station is conveniently right next to a drink kiosk, so it’s easy to grab a pint, and enjoy the rest of the United Kingdom pavilion while you wait to be seated. And here’s what you can look forward to once you get to your table.

5. Ambiance: Rose and Crown has a wonderful, relaxed atmosphere that is a welcome respite after a day of touring Epcot. No matter where you’re seated, you will enjoy the relaxing ambiance. The pub has its own resident piano player, and she is a hoot. Make sure to stick around and enjoy the entertainment! The dining room has a comfortable, homey feel, and its proximity to the pub keeps it from ever seeming stuffy. Outside, the patio is broken up into two levels. The upper level offers views of the World Showcase promenade and the rest of the United Kingdom pavilion, and is great for people watching. The patio’s lower level is situated right on World Showcase Lagoon, and guests will enjoy a fantastic view of the water and the countries across the way. Bonus ambiance points if you dine during that golden hour before sunset and the whole lagoon is bathed in gorgeous soft light.

4. Food and Drink: Pub food is comfort food. Enjoy hearty, British fare paired with a wide selection of stouts, ales, scotch, and a variety of English-inspired cocktails. They also have a fantastic beer flight. The menu at Rose and Crown definitely reflects the pavilion’s home culture. Feast on British favorites, like the Scotch Egg, Shepherd’s Pie, Bubble and Squeak, and Toffee Pudding. Or, end your Epcot day with a drink or two in the pub for some upbeat fun!

3. Accents: Really, who doesn’t love British accents? Since Cast Members in the World Showcase countries all hail from the pavilion’s country, you’re sure to hear a lot of interesting accents all over the park! Cast Members love talking about their home, so don’t be afraid to ask where they are from, how they are liking Florida, what do they miss about home, etc. These kinds of interactions are fun, and you can really learn a lot about their home country. The fact that you get to listen to that accent while they talk is an added bonus!

2.. Value: Whether you’re using the Disney Dining Plan, or paying out of pocket, you are sure to find a great value at Rose and Crown. This restaurant participates in the Dining Plan as one credit table service. Guests on the Dining Plan will want to consider ordering the Scottish Salmon and the Steak paired with Fried Fish to get the most bang for your dining credit. Those paying out of pocket can enjoy traditional Fish and Chips or Bangers and Mash, both at a very affordable price point. Rose and Crown also accepts Tables in Wonderland, which is applicable to any appetizers and alcoholic drinks that you might order in addition to your main meal. The Tables in Wonderland discount can be used on these options that aren’t covered by the Dining Plan, or for your whole meal if paying out of pocket.

1. Illuminations View: The patio’s view for Illuminations: Reflections of Earth deserves its own section! If you’ve never enjoyed this view, you are certainly missing out! Not only does the patio provide guests with a peaceful table on the water during the day, but the views of Illuminations are absolutely stunning. Plus, there’s no need to stake out a spot hours before the show starts either. However, that does not mean you won’t wait for this coveted location. To up your chances of patio seating, make a reservation for about an hour and a half to two hours before the fireworks, check in a little early for your reservation, and tell the hostess that you’re willing to wait for a patio table.

So what are you waiting for? Go make your reservation for Rose and Crown! To make reservations, call (407) 939-5277 or visit disneyworld.disney.go.com. Maybe I’ll see you there!
