- Vegetable Plate: Broccoli, carrot sticks, and tomatoes with dip (Plant-based)
- Pretzels with Hummus Dip (Plant-based)

World Nature Neighborhood of EPCOT
As EPCOT continues its multi-year transformation you may notice new names for certain sections of the park.
Each of the neighborhoods at EPCOT is dedicated to a different message and focus. World Nature, for example, is dedicated to understanding and preserving the beauty, awe, and balance of the natural world.
Butterfly Landing presented by AdventHealth and The Land Cart hosted by AdventHealth are located in World Nature. This part of the park is formerly known as Future World West.
This focus on the natural world is just some of the immersive storytelling found in the four EPCOT neighborhoods.
World Celebration encompasses the EPCOT entrance plaza and courtyards in the center of the park. It serves as the heart that connects guests to one another and the world around them – a fitting message for couples looking to enhance their connection with each other.
In World Discovery, formerly Future World East, stories about science, technology, and intergalactic adventure come to life.
And World Showcase, a date night favorite, celebrates culture, cuisine, architecture, and traditions.
