Epcot Food and Wine Festival – Planning, What’s New, Tips, Strategies and more and Disney Trivia Contest

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #290 for the week of September 2, 2012.

The 17th annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival takes place between September 28 and November 12 this year, and will once again take guests on a culinary adventure around the world. With delicious food and refreshing beverages from across the globe, celebrity chef demonstrations and concerts, there’s something to satisfy every taste and interest. And with so much to see, do and eat, I want to help prepare you for this year’s event. So this week, we’ll cover not just the basics of the Festival, but what’s new, special events, what not to miss, as well as tips and strategies to get the most out of the event.

Answer the Walt Disney World Trivia Question of the Week for your chance to win a Disney prize package. And be sure to stay for other announcements, including information about the next WDW Radio Meet of the Month and some special events going on during the opening weekend of the Food and Wine Festival, including Epcot’s 30th anniversary. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

    This will be my first time to WDW during F&W, so I am looking forward to everything!!! I’ll be at Epcot on a Wednesday, so I’m really hoping that Lou will do his live show from there and I can hang out and taste all the great food and drink along side him!

    We saw Dennis DeYoung (STYX) in concert over the summer. Yes, he did play “Mr. Roboto”.

    I’d have to say, what I’m looking forward to, in regards to Food & Wine, would be actually making back for another festival! We’ve only been once, and that was back in 2006. I vaguely remember the food experiences we had, but I do remember it WAS a lot of fun. Even with our kids, who were 6 and 9 at the time. They enjoyed it as well. That’s the only time we have ever visited WDW during that time of the year. Definitely have to make it back to refresh our memories. Love going this time of year. Food & Wine, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, great weather. Doesn’t get much better than that.

    Thanks again for another terrific show, Lou and AJ!!!
