    We do it every year. It's fun walking around World Showcase eating and drinking at the various booths.

    Re: Epcot food and wine

    The Food & Wine festival has become my favorite event at Walt Disney World!!

    There are wine tastings and events - but the most fun is just walking around World Showcase tasting all the amazing food!! We usually take 2 days to try everything!!

    My best tip is to go to the Food & Wine Festival during the week. The free seminars are much easier to get into, and the food booths are not crowded.

    The weekends can be a bit crazy, with a lot of locals coming in to drink. We have seen some wild and crazy behavior in Epcot on Saturday nights - so we now schedule our Food & Wine time for during the week.

    Come on down to the Festival -- I promise you will love it!

    F&W is awsome! I did it back in 2006, and loved it. And I am looking forward to doing it again this fall.

    This is not to be missed! I did it the first time in 2007 and can hardly wait to go back this year. With all the different foods to taste, it takes at least 2 days. I did not need to make any dining reservations as the food booths filled me up quite nicely.
