    Hello, How does the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot work? Are there booths with small samples or do you visit restaurants and order a meal? If small samples, what is the average cost per sample?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Wanda!

    There are only a few short days until your magical trip!  I am so excited for you!  All of your careful planning is sure to end in a practically perfect vacation.  No tricks here, the fall is one of the most fun times to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  Let's make sure you get a taste of all the treats waiting for you when you arrive!

    My family had a blast sampling all of the scrumptious dishes offered during the Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival during our visit at the end of July.  Throughout the park, you will find booths offering dishes from around the world.  It is truly a foodie's paradise!  In my experience, I found that most beverages and dishes cost between $6 and $10, depending on the size of the portion.  If you are looking for a full meal, you can still make an advance dining reservation for any of the EPCOT restaurants currently open during your vacation.

    During our visit, our goal was to try something from every booth.  This seemed overwhelming at first, but over the course of the day we were able to conquer this epic food quest!  We found most samples to be very sharable and splitting them between the four of us allowed us to try everything but ensure we could still walk out of the park at the end of the night.  You can buy a festival passport at one of the EPCOT shops and keep track of all the goodies you try!  We ranked our favorites as we traveled the World Showcase and the winners were the Chicken Dumplings offered near the China pavilion and Morocco's Spicy Hummus Fries.  

    I hope you stop by planDisney again and sample our knowledge if you have any additional questions before your visit, Wanda!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
