On October 26, I met my Mom up at Epcot for a little Food & Wine craziness. My standard advice is to avoid attending Food & Wine Festival on weekends if at all possible. If you must attend, get there as soon as the World Showcase opens (11am, but some booths open a little early) and try to wrap up the Food & Wine portion of your day by 2pm or so.
I got to the park around 10am and my Mom met me about noon. I did a little exploring on my own and right before 11am, headed over to the World Showcase. Now, today was also one of the first weekends we had that the weather was comfortable and gorgeous...which meant I was really expecting a lot of crowds. So I went in with a plan of attack: since I only had one day, I wrote down some of the new things that I wanted to try. I really didn't want to just go back to my favorites they have every year and be unable to try anything new since I was filled up. As I did last year, I'll also rate each dish on a scale of 1-5.
