Ah yes. The Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. One of my absolute favorite events evah. For real.
I love all aspects of Walt Disney World. You know I do. I love it because I’ve always had just as much fun (if not more) there as my kids do. I love it because we’ve made a ton of family memories there. I love it because it is one of the few places where dreams really really do come true.
But, between you and me, the food and wine festival is one of my favorite parts.
If you’ve been then you know how fun it is. And if you haven’t, then be sure to book during the right time next year would ya?
We love to cruise our way around the World Showcase and stop hither and yonder for itty bitty portions of adventurous, internationally-inspired foods. Jeff rather enjoys the various beers offered while I, well, I don’t really have to tell you now do I? You know me well enough to know what makes my heart go pitter patter (I mean besides Edward the vampire, duh).
It’s the wine. It’s the ability to sip different wines from all over the world. Red. White. Blush. Sparkling. Sweet. Dry. Sigh.
And they give them to you in those cute little cups. It’s just irresistible really.
This year, during our food and wine adventures, we sported custom t-shirts. Each one represented a different country. And I thought it’d be fun for everyone to pose in his or her “own country.” Based on the shirts of course.
We started in Mexico, and worked our way around the world. By the time we got to Canada, clear on the other side, we’d knocked back a few. Our inhibitions may or may not have been lowered a bit. Which might explain why we gave Cassidy the camera and posed for a picture or two. I saved those for last. I hope you find them to be as amusing as I do.
So sit back. Relax. Take a stroll with us through the World Showcase. It’s the next best thing to having been there yourself.
