  • October 10, 2011: Food & Wine & Rain Festival

    On Saturday, October 8, the event could have been called the Epcot Umbrella & Poncho Festival—or perhaps the Epcot Soggy Food & Rainwater Cocktail Festival.



    Please discuss it here.

    I had a great time on the opening weekend of this year's F&W Fest. That first Friday night was especially nice, with great weather and not too bad crowds. Saturday, however, was wall to wall people! Next year I think I'll wait a couple weeks longer till the crowds diminish a bit. And I just can't imagine trying to juggle food and wine AND an umbrella, or trying to stay out of the rain. It just didn't look like much fun, no matter how good the food and wine are.

        At the international marketplaces around World Showcase, wine tastes go for around $2.50 to $3.50. Tasting portions of food are typically $3 to $6. Tap beer is available in 6 oz., 12 oz., and 22 oz. sizes, at prices in the neighborhood of $3, $6, and $12, respectively.

        The only things that are free are tastes at "Authentic Tastes" seminars on weekends and little bags of Ocean Spray Craisins at the cranberry bog.

          Wonderful article as usual Werner, very interesting to read, however I found one typo that I thought you might want to fix.

          I beleive you meant HGTV which is the sponsor of the event this year.

              Wow! It rained in central Florida! Who could have predicted that?

              There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.
