    I'm trying to plan which time of year to vist Disney and I was thinking of going during Wine and Dine - Can you tell me about Wine and Dine? Is it crowded that time of year? What is it and how does it work?

    Each fall Epcot hosts the wonderful Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This year the event will take place from September 27 to November 10. 

    You can enjoy nearly 30 international food and beverage stations, allowing you to eat your way around the world. The food ranges from lamb chop from Australia to waffles from Belgium to vegan trick'n chick'n curry from Terra Marketplace. There are also celebrity chefs, special culinary events and HGTV seminars. 

    Last year Bethanny Frankel joined the lineup and hosted a "A Discussion with Bethenny Frankel" event. There are also several special ticketed events, such as Party of the Senses and more that were offered last year. 

    More information will be available as the dates near, but this is a great event for couples and families alike! 

    Depending upon which timeframe you visit during the 46 day window, the crowds can be lighter or heavier. Check out touringplans dot com for a crowd calculator. The end of September is a great time to visit, both for the crowd levels and great weather, and the crowds tend to pick up around the holiday weekends, such as Columbus Day and Veteran's Day.

    I hope you have a magical visit!
