Kitchen Kabaret epcotKitchen Kabaret was a former attraction located in The Land Pavilion at EPCOT. It was an audio-animatronic musical show that entertained guests with a catchy and educational performance about nutrition and healthy eating.

Kitchen Kabaret opened with The Land Pavilion in 1982 and featured a 13-minute show that combined music, humor, and colorful characters to promote the importance of balanced diets and making healthy food choices. The show took place in a theater-style setting and featured various audio-animatronic characters, including fruits, vegetables, dairy products, grains, and meats.

The main characters of Kitchen Kabaret included Bonnie Appetite, a singing hostess, and a variety of anthropomorphic food characters like Colander Combo, The Cereal Sisters, Hamm and Eggz, and The Dairy Goods.

Each character had its own musical number that showcased its nutritional value and benefits. The performances were lively and entertaining, with catchy songs and clever puns that emphasized the importance of eating a balanced diet and making healthy lifestyle choices.

Kitchen Kabaret aimed to educate guests, particularly children, about the different food groups, nutrients, and the benefits of maintaining a healthy diet. It used humor and engaging performances to make the educational content enjoyable and memorable for guests of all ages.

In 1994, Kitchen Kabaret was replaced by a new attraction called Food Rocks, which maintained a similar concept but updated the show with more modern music and a rock concert theme. Food Rocks continued to entertain and educate guests about nutrition and healthy eating choices until its closure in 2004.
