    prices will vary. Usually everything is under $5.50, if I am not mistaken. Also, the food is served on little plates, as they are all just samplings. Also, it is very casual, you eat as you go or find a seat on a bench. We love it...Can't wait to go back this year.

    it's a great event.....it can be a good value or costly depending on how you play it.....

    it is possible to have a nice amount of food for less than the comparitive cost of a sit down meal.....

    ...or you can wing it like me and drop 100+ in a few hours......

    this is one of the prime reasons why epcot is still the most imaginative....and best....amusement park ever conceived...

    If you are on the dining plan they have let you use snack credits at the kiosks in the past. Don't know about this year. Sorry we are going to miss it by being a week too early. But we are getting free dining.

    While we may have disagreed on some things, this is not one of them. I'm with you 100%.

    Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you!

    The kiosks are just little serving booths placed around the World Showcase. Food is served on small plates or bowls. There are no seating arrangements at the kiosks but just the tables, chairs and benches usually in the World Showcase, plus some extra here and there. You will learn very quickly how to eat while walking toward the next kiosk where you will sample an item.
    In past years the items have been priced from $2.50 to ~ $5. In the past they also have taken the Disney Reward Card as a payment option and of course, VISA, cash, snack credits.

    After reading a lot of overheated puffery about your new cook, you know what I'm craving? A little perspective. That's it. I'd like some fresh, clear, well seasoned perspective. Can you suggest a good wine to go with that?

    Why are there cities for every kiosk except "Louisiana, USA"? Isn't it weird that they wouldn't say "New Orleans" when every other one is a city?

    Default Food And Wine Line up

    For me, the tough thing about the FAWFestival is

    Every...
    single..
    little...
    plate...
    or...
    drink...
    has...
    a...
    separate...
    line...
    and...
    many...
    lines...
    are...
    quite...
    long...
    and...
    move...
    very...
    very...
    very...
    slowly.

    So when you approach a Kiosk you have to first determine which line is for which exact thing and where the end of that line is then queue up, wait, pay, eat 2 bites then make your way to the next often very long line.

    Popular kiosks create traffic jams as lines criss-cross across walkways.

    For people 'done' with EPCOT/WS it's a swell party. For people trying to tour EPCOT it's as much inconvenience as special event.

    so let me get this straight....

    your major F&W complaint is a fifteen person line?

    hmmmm......just wondering how you can stand to set foot in WDW if lines are an issue?

    But to your point.....the jumbled setup and overcrowding around the lagoon are sometimes a little bit too much.....i can concede that point

    Lines (what makes them think 'queue' sounds better?) are part of WDW and expected.

    My F&W queue complaint is it seems like every little taste has its own queue.

    Some kiosks have a wine line going one way and a cheese line going another. Am I in the right line?

    And if those lines are 15 people then some of those lines must be 15 people who can't decide if they want 'red' or 'white'.

    Anyway, I find myself looking at a kiosk and thinking, "Yes, I'd like to buy a little plastic cup of that wine and yes, I'm willing to pay $7 for it but... do I want to get in yet another line to make that purchase?

    It all sounds so good! The Food and Wine Festival is worth the lines and the congestion of World Showcase. It's so fun. I wish I was going this year. I wanted to plan a trip for my upcoming milestone birthday, but it didn't work out with a kid headed to college in the next year- darn!

    I love the F&W Festival and seeing this just makes me want to go!!!

    I think my fav last year had to be the frozen treats in France, it was like a frozen sorbet made with Campaign

    DH's b-day is Oct 1st and I surprised him with wine school in France - a Taste of Burgundy I believe it was called. A full day of wine tasting and food pairings, including frog leg soup!

    Sherri, maybe we can do a 2010 F&W meet!

    Default Going in October!

    We're so excited! DH and I are going after a conference. We're meeting some friends of ours that we met eating sushi at the same restaurant every week and became friends with.

    We're going Oct 9-11. We're bummed because the Sushi, Sake and Sashimi is on Mondays when we won't be there.

    It will be our first time and the way we look at is that we'll have the line time to slowly drink our wine/spirits so we can actually make it all the way around!


    This is also the first time we'll be going without our DS!
