I just returned for my annual
Food and Wine Festival trip to Walt Disney World, accompanied by my
mother and sister. We spent multiple days in World Showcase so as to
try as many offerings as possible. In the end, we tried food at the
majority of stations, splitting between my Mom, my sister and
myself. Personal food favorites were grilled lamb chop and shrimp
dishes at Australia, Feijoada (black bean stew cooked with pork) at
Brazil, Black Pepper Shrimp at China, fondue at the Cheese kiosk,
Golabki (pork stuffed cabbage) at Poland, Shrimp cake in Singapore,
Lamb Slider in New Zealand, Steamed Mussels in Garlic Cream Sauce at
Belgium, and Coq Au Vin at France. In regards to our wine favorites,
we enjoyed the Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc at the Cheese kiosk, the
Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc at New Zealand and the Moet and Chandon
Rose Imperial at the Champagne and Dessert kiosk; though I wish they
could find a way to keep the champagne chilled better. The champagne
at the permanent wine kiosk in France does not have this issue.
Some say they saw more people who over indulged in alcoholic
beverages. I can honestly say I did not see any of this behavior. Of
course, people were drinking; it is after all a Wine festival. In my
experience, though, no one exhibited overly drunken behavior,
regardless of the time of day we were in World Showcase.
<< Conclusion >>
The Epcot International Food
and Wine Festival continues through November 13, 2011. If you don't
catch the end of this year's event, we hope this edition has helped
you plan a future trip. We'll be back in a few weeks with the latest
happenings around the World and some great dining reviews. See ya
