Dining Review: Sunshine Seasons

Menu (Allergy Menu) Sunshine Seasons is located on the bottom floor of the Land Pavilion in Epcot. If you’ve been on Soarin‘ then you’ve been within feet of this restaurant. It’s a quick service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It offers a variety of different foods. For example it has salad, wok, grill, and sandwich stations. Sunshine Seasons has an extremely limited gluten free menu. Essentially there are only three choices. With it’s big ass menu you would think there would be more gluten free options available but it’s like they didn’t even try. Unfortunately, mobile ordering isn’t available for this restaurant. There isn’t much to say about this place except it’s essentially a damn food court with zero theming.

The Gluten Free Food

First, let me say that we at NotClub33 have recommended Sunshine Seasons as an option for folks looking for variety. With that said, our food tasted like complete horseshit. I ordered a pork chop with mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, and barbecue sauce. My wife ordered grilled salmon with grits and succotash. The smoked pork was edible by itself but the homemade bbq sauce tasted like watered down ketchup. To tell the damn truth, I took about two bites with the sauce and had to scrape that shit off. It was brutal. Besides the pork, the corn on the cob was absolute shit. It must of been sitting for a while because it was complete mush. How the hell do you mess up corn on the cob? Admittedly, the mashed potatoes were actually really good. By the same token, the salmon was dry and awful. My wife said the succotash tasted like canned vegetables dumped on a plate. However, the grits were the standout of this particular dish.

I can’t speak to the rest of the menu- maybe its kicks ass. For instance, the sandwiches actually looked really damn good. However, our food was equal to dog shit. Granted, I probably shouldn’t have expected good things from the salmon since it was a quick service meal. By way of contrast, my issue with the bbq sauce is absolutely valid. As a final point, I don’t recommend Sunshine Seasons as a gluten free option when visiting Epcot.
