The One Restaurant You Need to Rope Drop in EPCOT

By admin May12,2024

For most people, rope-dropping a Disney World park means making a beeline for a popular ride. But in EPCOT, we’ve got a surprising spot at the top of our priority list!

France Pavilion

In Disney terminology “rope-dropping” means being at the park right when it opens. Usually, guests at the park for rope drop will use this time to head straight for one of the most popular rides, with the hope of getting in line before the wait times climb super high. But hear us out — in EPCOT, there’s a restaurant you might want to rope drop instead of an attraction!

Yes, you might think we sound a little rogue telling you to rope-drop a restaurant in EPCOT when there are several great rides to get to first. Test Track, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, and Frozen Ever After make it a tough decision where to go right when you get in the park. But listen, there’s a secret place you’re not rope-dropping, but you should be.

Between the wide variety of restaurants around the World Showcase and the seasonal treats that are available at the food booths during festivals, there’s a TON of great food in EPCOT. But even with so many delicious options to choose from, we still have some favorite spots that stand out above the rest!

One of our go-to places in EPCOT is Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie, a bakery in the France Pavilion that offers tons of both sweet and savory treats.

Les Halles

Les Halles has a huge selection of options, including fresh pastries, sandwiches, soups, and desserts. We recently tried the Patisserie a L’abricot! It’s a lightly toasted croissant that has a sweet and buttery inside with a sliced apricot on either side topped with powdered sugar. There are tons of delicious pastries at Les Halles, but this flakey and fruity croissant is a great option.

It’s also the home of one of the best “bang for your buck” snacks in Disney World — a whole baguette for less than $4!

And while most of the World Showcase doesn’t open until 11AM, Les Halles is one of the few World Showcase locations that opens at the same time as the rest of EPCOT. That means it’s the perfect time to swing by to grab breakfast — those fresh pastries are calling our name!

LOTS to Pick From

Since much of the World Showcase is still closed at rope drop, lots of guests don’t even realize that Les Halles is open in the morning. So if you do rope drop this spot, you’ll probably get a WAY shorter line than if you visit later in the day!
