Now this is the good one…..Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Basically between the end of September and mid November Epcot hosts this food festival. A series of booths are positioned around the world showcase, actually this year they are in future world too. These booths each highlight foods from different countries around the world. That is it in really simple terms, there is a lot more going on during the festival. If you are looking for more information I suggest looking at the www.disneyfoodblog.com. There is so much information on there about the festival and all the food at Disney.
We love the festival – nothing beats walking round world showcase munching and drinking. Below are the items we are most looking forward to (Thanks Disney food blog for this pics )
Last time we were at the festival was 2012 and we have a two favs that we are looking forward to again:

Apart from a day spent at Epcot eating round the world and the few adrs mentioned in the previous post we are mainly going to wing it. This is a completely new thing for us at Disney. I am a bit nervous about having so few food plans but excited about discovering a few quick services places we have never had time to try and maybe even make it out to some resort food courts.
