Here are a few quick words and pictures about the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which opened this weekend at Disney World. It’s the 15th annual event, and there is a lot of birthday-related decor, with food and wine glasses sporting map motifs to support the “Celebrating 15 Years of Delicious Discoveries” theme.
More agreeable (translation: less stifling) weather was a boon to the event, but it must be said: the sun is still out. Use sunscreen, y’all. It was way hotter at Epcot than in my backyard, and shade is at a premium, especially if you decide to hit the festival during the heat of the lunch rush.
On the positive side, my experience with the sometimes-testy cash registers was much better this year. I did hear multiple complaints about kiosks not having everything as advertised, and that was happening early. Hopefully, everyone’s under control by now.
