The EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival is an annual event at Disney.
Celebrating Culinary Adventures from September 28 to November 12, 2012
A food and wine lover’s paradise awaits you at Epcot with the 17th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Presented by Chase!
From tasty tapas and refreshing beverages to celebrity chef demonstrations and rock star performances, there’s something to satisfy every taste and interest.
This was the first time either of us have had the opportunity to at attend the festival. For years I have seen my friends post about going to the festival and I would ooze with jealousy.
(This post reflects our visit to the festival on Friday, September 28th, 2012)
It’s a food lovers paradise and, well, Alex and I are food lovers! We hoped it was as good as it looked.
First stop: the Festival Center to grab a festival card (basically a gift card) which makes paying and navigating the lines a lot easier. And a Passport which lists each country/food station and they dishes/drinks that are offered.
Now it was time to get our eat on!
Belgium for a Waffle with a Berry Compote (my choice).
Hawaii for a Pineapple Pork Slider (which was all mine!!).
And last from the Desserts and Champagne stand we got Nesquik Frozen Chocolate Foam.
Alex’s favorite plates were the ones with cheese. Go figure! Mine was the slider from Hawaii. The Chocolate foam was refreshing, but we both agreed that it wasn’t as great as we expected it to be.
There is still 5 more weeks left of the festival and we haven’t even begin to scratch the surface of what’s available. To see a complete list click HERE.
We I hope to make it back tomorrow (Monday – October 8th) for the Boys 2 Men concert. Along with all the amazing food, drinks, and culinary demonstrations there are also concerts! The Eat to The Beat Concert Series. I also have my sights on Hanson in a few weeks!
