    We are excited about our possible food and wine festival experience? What advice can you offer for maximum enjoyment of the event? We will hopefully be there the first week of October. Also do they still offer the wrist band gift cards? Thanks!

    Hi Brooke - When I was at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival last year, they still offered the gift card wrist bands.  I personally think they are a great idea, because it's so much more convenient than pulling out your wallet each time.

    To enjoy the event, I'd recommend that you go hungry, and pick up a brochure first so you can decide which food and beverages you want to enjoy.  It's very easy to fill up on food before you've visited all of the kiosks, and you want to save room for your top choices!

    It's also a great idea to check out the schedule of events in advance too - there many be some events and or lectures/demonstrations that you'll want to attend. 

    Keep in mind that you can use snack credits (if you have the Disney Dining Plan) on many of the food samples at the Food and Wine Festival - so save them up!

    Have a great vacation!
