Located on World Showcase Promenade between the France and Morocco Pavilions, the Florida Fresh garden is a great spot to grab some festival food and sit down for a break. Low tables and chairs located within a landscaped garden setting line the route to a fun little playground for the kids to play at.

A perfect Key Lime Tart topped with toasted meringue, and a delicate cookie butterfly. Made with real Key Lime juice the balance in this famous Florida pie was tart and sweet without being overly cloying. The toasted meringue was a fun addition adding just a hint of interesting char.

While we enjoyed the Carne Asada, the flavors of the dish were not what we were expecting, it through us off a touch.
