The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival has begun!



It’s that time of year again, a time of year that many fans flock to Epcot for their yearly Food and Wine Festival.  The festivities kicked off yesterday, and include more than 300 national and international wines, more than 220 tastes and sips priced $3-$8 around World Showcase Lagoon, and 138 Eat to the Beat! concerts. There are opportunities to enjoy the cuisines of 100-plus celebrity chefs and 160 Walt Disney World chefs. And more than 300 wine and beer seminars.

The Festival includes daily events – from the Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog to fireworks each night.   There’s lots more to do than eat and drink – but don’t miss the new Scotland Marketplace or Brazil (returning by popular demand).

Also, keep in mind the Party for the Senses grand tasting events, back this year on October 5, 12, 19, 26 and November 2, with amazing and unique food and more than 50 wines and beers and live entertainment.

Information and reservations for select programs is at Call 407-WDW-FEST (939-3378) to make reservations.

    We went to WDW when we did because it was Food and Wine Festival time at Epcot. In fact, we added a day so we could go to Party for the Senses. And that’s this topic of discussion.

    First…it ain’t cheap. Think it was about $80 a ticket. Was it worth it? Yes…just for the experience. Will we do it again? Probably not. It was the first time I had ever seen anything Disney so chaotic and disorganized.

    It seems to us there would be seating available for all the tickets sold…but there’s not. We were told to get a table as soon as we walked in the door. But the way it’s set up, it’s a mad rush for those few tables. Not worth fighting over. We found spots on the floor…out of the way…and had a great time.

    The food is terrific…paired with the vast wine selection. We found one wine we liked so much, we went to the wine store and bought a bottle. Then had to get a Mouse Ears wine stopper to go in it!

    It’s a wonderful experience to do one time…but that’s probably the only time. But the F & W Fest itself? Yup…we’ll go back for that…
