    Food & Wine Fest ?--in your opinion, how much money to bring? Err on the side of more. We plan to try at least 2 foods and 2 drinks AT EACH BOOTH possibly more & also flights as well. We'd rather have more money than not enough money on hand! 

    Hi Yvonne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are my kind of girl! Eating our way around World Showcase for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is a favorite for me and my husband. I'm happy to give some advice!

    First, don't be afraid to share. The very first year we attended the festival, we ordered multiple food items and drinks from every kiosk and were full after about five kiosks. That isn't a big deal, except for the fact we had 20 more to go! Now, we order one (sometimes two) dish at each kiosk, then share so we can try more things. We share a drink or one beverage flight together. It is much more manageable. We also spread it out over a few days because the festival has grown a lot over the years, with about 40 kiosks available this year!

    Now on to the budgeting. I'm going to use Belgium's kiosk as an example because it was SO GOOD! We ordered the Beer-Braised Beef ($5.25), Belgian Waffle with Warm Chocolate Ganache ($4.00) and the Leffe Blonde Belgian Pale Ale Flight ($4.25). The total for that was $13.50. If you round up to $15.00 for the pricier food and beverages, times that by 40 kiosks, you are looking to spend about $600.00. If you do an internet search for "Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 2018 menus," a few sites should come up that list every kiosk's menu and prices. This should be super helpful in determining your budget! In the end, this is all about your magical vacation, so have fun!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Yvonne! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
