16th Annual EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

.


I'm so excited to let you all know about the 16th annual EPCOT Food and Wine Festival being held at Walt Disney World. This is the event that Bill and I look forward to all year long. There is so much to see and do and EAT!!

This year's event is being held from September 30, 2011 to November 13, 2011, so if you are in the central Florida area during that time, you have to make time to visit EPCOT... All events are included in your admission ticket price (food is extra, ranging in price from $3.00 - $7.00) including the amazing "Eat to the Beat" Concerts at the American Gardens Theater. Bill and I love taking an afternoon and evening going to EPCOT to eat and see these concerts ranging from "Hanson" to "The Pointer Sisters" to our absolute favorite, "Starship, staring Mickey Thomas" - we've seen them six times already. To see the complete list of performers head on over to the Disney World Website.

There are so many other things to do: seminars, beer and wine tastings, Party for the Senses, Culinary Adventures in Signature Dining - it really is absolutely amazing. (Some are included with your admission ticket, others are an additional fee.) Check out the Welcome Center and the Festival Brochure to see all the activities and along with a map showing all the countries and the delicious foods that will be there for you to indulge in.

Bill and I like to walk around (technically he pushes me around in my wheelchair) the circle that is the World Showcase and eat at each country (sharing most stuff) until we have WWIII in our tummies, then go see one of the concerts and then head home to digest - and usually fall asleep.  Then in a few days, we do it all again, starting where we left off the previous visit... =)

Seriously, if you are here in central Florida during Sept. 30th - Nov. 13th, try and make it to EPCOT for this MOST fabulous event ~ you will NOT be disappointed ~ we never are!!


Bon Apetit!

Oh wow! That sounds like a wonderful time! I wish Dave could get the time off. I'm sure he'd take me there if only for one afternoon because he'd have to go to his Islands of Adventure after that. Personally, I love the Universal Studios too & all the shows. I've never been to Disney maybe Dave will take me one day soon! Have fun you two Honeymooners!
