My favorites at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival 2018

Epcot Food and Wine Festival 2018

This year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival is one of the best! But, I know that I say this every year that I go to the festival. The difference this trip was that I made a conscious effort to step out of my comfort zone and try as many different types of food as possible. For my one week at Disney, I stopped at the Food and Wine Festival four separate times to get some delicious food. I made it to 18 different booths, and some had multiple stops because they were that good. So, now to not delay it any further, here were my favorites in no particular order:

I didn’t take any pictures of the France “Carbonade de Boef, Puree de Pommes de Terre” dish which was a hit for my sister and me. My brother-in-law liked the Morocco dish “Kefta Pocket.” The other food dish recommended by actual Disney cast members is the Greek loaded Nachos. The only meal that I had difficulty finishing was the Africa Beef dish as it was way too spicy for me. 

Some of the other booths which were not country-specific had some exciting snacks and drinks. The Test Track booth had Croissant Doughnuts which were interesting to try. Sorry I didn’t get a picture since my sister and niece started eating theirs immediately.

The drink selection was just as intensive to choose as there were multiple choices at each booth. These are the ones that I tried.

Light Lab

The Light Lab was entertaining to figure out the flavors. I got 1.5 correct out of the three total flavors. It isn’t as easy as you think. 

The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is an excellent vacation for adults who think Disney is just for kids. This is my favorite time to be at Disney. Where else can you enjoy food and drinks from all around the world? Prices for each of the dishes vary. Most of them are around $5, and you can get a gift card that you can use to pay at all the booths. Just remember to set your budget ahead of time on how much you are willing to spend. Because when you get here, it is so tempting to try more than you initially thought you were going to try. 

This year’s Food and Wine Festival runs unto November 12, so there is still time to try all this goodness. If you can’t make it Pin It for next year to remind you what you have to look forward to. Food and Wine Festival Pinterest Pin
