^ Don't forget about the scene where an angry boss screams in your face for 5 minuets because everything that you were not in charge of is now entirely your fault... and the resulting pay cut!

Ok, Not sure which WDW Park thread to post this in, so I'll start with Epcot.

Last Time I visited WDW was in 2009. I will be visiting the parks on November 27-30th, and would like to know what has changed and what I can expect crowd wise. I know the Disney Junior Soccer Showcase is going on during this (huge Soccer tournament at ESPN WWoS), so will that effect crowds? Also, best places to eat? Especially Epcot, as I will spend a good amount of time there. I have no priorities or must do's yet, but that might change if my little sister comes along so I can get her on all the Mountain rides, Good Tower, and Rockn' Roller coaster; as those are what she wants to do the most. Any other info would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Actually, it is. Just make one thread and ask your question in the future. Or just post it one of the existing threads. Posting in all four threads was obnoxious.

Do some research on your own. There are a TON of Disney World threads in here to search through. Once you you've done that, come back and ask any more specific questions you have.

Epcot Food & Wine Festival is HERE!!!

With all the awesome fall events going on at the Orlando theme parks (and they are all really awesome), the one that really stands out for us is Epcot's Food & Wine Festival! For those of you who don't know what it is, just picture about 30 booths set up all around World Showcase in Epcot, each with different food and alcohol samplings from different countries, regions, or food types.

This is the time of year you can literally "eat and drink your way around the park!" It's AWESOME!

This year's Food & Wine festival goes through November 11th. We highly recommend checking it out as often as you can (you'll probably find us there on most days!)

We of course were there for the opening day! Here are some photos and a video. (Yes, they put me to work in the Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog! lol)

epcot_FW_2013_04.jpg
The "Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog" is the very first thing you will encounter walking into the Food & Wine Festival!

epcot_FW_2013_05.jpg
Stop by and get a free pack of Craisins!

epcot_FW_2013_06.jpg
To kick off the Food & Wine Festival, they invited us down to "hang out in the bog!" lol That sounds amazing!

epcot_FW_2013_07.jpg
Check me out... I'm all suited up!

epcot_FW_2013_08.jpg
"Would anyone like some fresh cranberries? I picked them myself!"

epcot_FW_2013_09.jpg
Hanging out with Rod from Ocean Spray. He tells us all about the bog and why Ocean Spray is here at the Food & Wine Festival (Watch the video!)

epcot_FW_2013_10.jpg
Yup, they put me to work! =)

epcot_FW_2013_11.jpg

Yesss! Another place at Walt Disney World to get the free Ghirardelli chocolate samples!

epcot_FW_2013_16.jpg
Gotta admit, as much as I love the Food & Wine Festival Center, I do miss Wonders of Life.... Body Wars, Cranium Command, Martin Short talking to you about sex...

epcot_FW_2013_17.jpg
Here are the 2013 Food & Wine money bracelets! Load these up with hundreds of dollars and eat your hard earned dollars away!

epcot_FW_2013_18.jpg
Each of the Food & Wine countries have a booth like this.

"How's it going, Jake?" =)

epcot_FW_2013_22.jpg
Sorry, no Kangaroo tail on the menu!

epcot_FW_2013_23.jpg
Mexico had a yummy new taco on the menu!

epcot_FW_2013_24.jpg
I have weakness for Mexican food...

epcot_FW_2013_25.jpg
...so I had to get one! And it was delicious!

epcot_FW_2013_26.jpg
Here's a look at the offerings from Singapore...

epcot_FW_2013_27.jpg
Elissa got her "Stack-O-Dumplings" from China...

Lettuce wrap was back from last year and it was good...

epcot_FW_2013_31.jpg
And this Kimchi Dog was new. Wonderful!

epcot_FW_2013_32.jpg
A moment of silence as the loss of the "Cheese Fondue" this year did not sit well with Elissa... Poor girl...

epcot_FW_2013_33.jpg
A sampling from Africa...

epcot_FW_2013_34.jpg
YES!!!! WE BUILT THIS CITY!!!!

epcot_FW_2013_35.jpg
It wouldn't be Food & Wine without BEER! (Sorry, I'm not a wine person....but this makes me VERY happy!)

epcot_FW_2013_36.jpg
Poland, anyone?

epcot_FW_2013_37.jpg
France was CRAZY BUSY!!! Lots of people want them snails!

epcot_FW_2013_38.jpg
While still bummed about the Country of Cheese being dead to her, Elissa found some happiness in Morocco.

epcot_FW_2013_39.jpg
The Canadian offerings are always OUTSTANDING!!! (Still can't believe I'm saying this about anything Canadian!) lol

epcot_FW_2013_40.jpg
My personal favorite this year so far is still in Hawaii...

epcot_FW_2013_41.jpg
"Hey Kid... stop changing the prices!!! They aren't going to get any lower!"

epcot_FW_2013_42.jpg
I *LOVE* the Hawaiian Pork Slider. OMG! Sooooo good!

epcot_FW_2013_43.jpg
Pork slider and a beer! Now THIS is an awesome combo!!!

epcot_FW_2013_44.jpg
Scotland was new this year...

epcot_FW_2013_45.jpg
And they offered "Vegetarian Haggis???" I didn't even know that was possible! lol

epcot_FW_2013_46.jpg
Make sure you get one of these passports and stamp each place you get food and alcohol from. About half-way around, and 10-15 drinks in, it's ok to slur the stamps if you have to. ;)

epcot_FW_2013_47.jpg
Had such an AWESOME first visit to Epcot's Food & Wine! We plan to be back many, many, many times throughout the season! =)

Nice review of the offerings this year. I should be able to try most of it over the next couple months!

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Thanks for the update, Robb & Elissa, and one thing for sure -- I'm hungry right now (again;-) at about 02:00am CET (Central European Time)! ;)
