The Food & Wine Fest is the adult Disney World – wait, we ARE at Disney World! Yes, the Food & Wine Festival is an Adult treat at Epcot that shouldn’t be missed. It’s Epcot x 30 (the number of kiosks they add to the world showcase). Now, the kids will have a great time too, just not the wine part…Here are my tips to enjoying the Festival which will be going on until November 11th.
.Second grab a passport – it’s fun to carry around and each kiosk will stamp it for you as you eat and drink your way around Epcot.
You’ll want to pace yourself – do a lunch version where you head one way and a dinner and enter the showcase the opposite way to see everything. Or break it up in to a few days if you’ve got a hopper.
We enjoyed everything really, but the selections we visited several times were the China Kiosk for the Mongolian Beef in a Steamed Bun, ummm yeah, no picture because we ate that one before remembering to take a pic….The Grapefruit Beer at the Beer Garden near Germany and the Kielbasa & Potato Pierogi with Carmalized Onions in Poland are great!
The Refreshment port has a limited edition Orange Dole Whip and a version with Creme de Cacao too! And the list goes on and on…If you don’t make it there this year, put it on your calendar to attend next year – it’s worth the trip! And if you’re concerned about gaining a few, plan to attend at the tail end and run the Food and Wine half marathon and family 5K events. It’s another combo of my favorite things – Eating & Running!
Bon Appetit & Bon Voyage!
