    Attending food and wine festival in October for wedding anniversary. We would love recommendations for a great Mexican restaurant and great steakhouse. Are there river cruises, wine tastings available at night during fireworks? Thanks!

    Hi Tony! The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is a great time to come to Walt Disney World to celebrate your anniversary. There are so many opportunities for fun and food experiences during these weeks.

    My favorite place to get a good steak is just a short walk from Epcot out the International Gateway to the Yacht Club resort. The Yachtsman Steakhouse offers many different steak variety meals and the quality is consistent. My family has always found it better then Le Cellier which is in the Canada Pavilion inside Epcot. It is also easier to get reservations at the Yachtsman.

    For a great Mexican meal we prefer the La Hacienda de San Angel restaurant located outside on the water in the Mexican Pavilion area of Epcot. If you time it right you can also see the great Illuminations fireworks show from your table due to the tall windows looking out over the lake.

    For a very romantic and great experience consider booking an Illuminations Cruise. You can reserve a pontoon boat and driver for yourselves and order champagne or other treats from the Yacht Club private dining that is delivered to your boat. Your spot for the Illuminations show is the best and it would be an amazing anniversary celebration.

    The word is that the Food and Wine experiences will be out around the middle of July with reservations beginning around the 21. Please keep watching the Disney Parks Blog for updates and information as it is released.
