Marvel fans, the Guardians of the Galaxy are making their return to Epcot this summer starting today with the Awesome Mix Live concert at the American Gardens Theatre. Every day from June 14th to August 18th, you can catch Star-Lord, Gamora and an alien rock band singing hit songs featured in the Marvel films several times a day. But if singing along to your favorite 70s tune is not enough, Disney has released a new line up of intergalactic food to get you in the mood as well. These offerings can be enjoyed in the American Adventure Pavilion before or after a concert, and will surely help you cool down in these hot summer months.
At Liberty Inn you can grab a Space Sandwich or an Awesome Mix Plate. The Space Sandwich features barbecue pulled pork topped with crispy onions and served on a Kaiser bun with french fries, while the Awesome Mix Plate includes french fries topped with barbecue pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, bacon, and lettuce – YUM! Or if you’re looking for something on the sweeter side, then the Cosmic Cake is just the thing. This chocolate cake is filled with vanilla buttercream and SPACE SPRINKLES! Whatever you choose, you can wash it down with Rocket Fuel – a frozen Coca-Cola slushy with grenadine.
Over at Fife & Drum, you can snack on a Mix Tart strawberry-filled shortbread cookie or sip on one of our stellar beverages. The Awesome Mix Slushy is a frozen blue raspberry, strawberry, and lemonade slushy and it’s served with a fun glow cube. Or find your inner-plant with the I Am Root float, featuring Barq’s Root Beer with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and mint leaves. There’s also the Destroyer Punch with orange, pineapple, and lime juices and grenadine. Adults can even enjoy an alcoholic version, Galaxy Juice, which includes cherry bourbon.
