Epcot is a great choice for an adults-only anniversary evening, and this summer there are two new ideas that may just strike your fancy: the IllumiNation Sparkling Dessert Party and the Epcot After Hours Wind Down.

IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party

There are several aspects of this unique dessert party that make it romantic. It all starts shortly before the nightly IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth firework, laser light, and music extravaganza. Just as the evening light is fading Epcot’s World Showcase is starting to take on its relaxed, romantic air, you’ll be treated to a dessert party like no other.


One of the main benefits of this party is being able to see the fireworks show from an exceptional vantage point – without having to stake out a seat hours in advance. You’ll also get to taste delicious desserts, plus coffee, tea, and sparkling wine. The cost of the party varies based on the night you choose, but it always includes unlimited desserts, which are replenished throughout the night, and all you can drink beverages.

Epcot After Hours Wind Down

There are 4 options for the Epcot After Hours Wind Down: Spice Road Table in the Morocco pavilion, La Cava de Tequila in Mexico, Rose & Crown Pub in the UK, and Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar in Italy. No matter which spot you choose, you’ll get a flight of adult beverages, plus many tasty snacks to sample on.


While the food and drink selection is one part of the appeal, the main draw of this exclusive experience is that you get to stay in the park after closing. After the fireworks are complete, head to the spot you’ve chosen and wind down with the drinks and food of your choice. It’s the perfect way to have a night cap when you’re celebrating your anniversary in the happiest place on earth.

Here is a list of all the attractions at EPCOT.
