    How busy are the parks during the wine and food fest? We are going Nov. of 2012, hope it isn't to busy! Went to WDW for Xmas 2009, was way to crowded from Dec. 23 to Jan1 2010. Thanks

    Hi Cynthia!
    The Food and Wine Festival does add to the overall crowd level at Epcot, although not nearly to the level you experienced at Christmas.  Most of the crowds tend to visit not only Epcot, but the other theme parks as well. In addition, many guests participate in the marathon and half marathon that take place during this time. Lately, it seems that the ESPN Wide World of Sports has been adding more and more events as well.  It is getting harder and harder to find times when Walt Disney World is not busy to some degree.
    Even so, I do not think you'll find the parks to be nearly as crowded as you did on your last visit.  I hope this helps and I wish you a Magical vacation!! :)
