T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Foodies Rejoice – Food And Wine Time Is Almost Here!

The characters, the rides, the shows – there’s so much to see and do at Walt Disney World that just thinking about it all makes me tired…and HUNGRY. Luckily, WDW has some truly amazing cuisine – and if you’re a “foodie” then you might want to plan your Disney vacation around the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – where you can experience even MORE amazing eats!

Guests can sample tapas-sized tastes of inventive cuisine from more than 30 global marketplaces during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Sept. 25-Nov. 16, 2015 at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The popular fall festival also features wine tastings, culinary demonstrations, mixology seminars, nightly "Eat to the Beat" concerts and a broad range of premium dining events. For the first time in the festival's 20-year-history, global marketplace experiences, expand from the park's World Showcase into Future World. (Matt Stroshane, photographer)

This year the Festival runs from September 14th – November 14th, and in addition to TONS of pop up kiosks featuring cuisine from around the world – places like Belgium, Brazil, South Korea, and MANY more will be represented

The idea here is to pair the country’s signature dishes with their best wines and beverages, to really showcase the food AND drink! Check out the full list of kiosks that will be at this year’s festival Here

In addition to the food and drink available for purchase, there will be live concerts, culinary demonstrations, beverage seminars, and newly added this year – the chance to get in on the action with “Mix it, Make It, Celebrate it!” classes (like sushi making and cake decorating to name a few!)

The Food and Wine Festival is really a dream come true for someone like myself – who loves Disney and FOOD – and I can’t wait to check it out next fall when I head to WDW!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Feeling “Spring-y” Thanks To The Epcot Flower And Garden Festival!

It’s almost April, it’s officially been Spring for almost a week now – and to me, this is a big deal. Not because I love spring (I actually don’t, oddly enough), but because this winter has been BRUTAL for the Northeast US – and I am SO over it. All of the signs of spring give me hope – including the signs that are popping up at WDW – like the 2014 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival – a sure sign of Spring, this annual festival runs from March 5th -May 18th, and features beautiful topiaries, thousands of flowers, amazing landscaping, presentations by your favorite HGTV stars, and tons of great food too! The food part is relatively new, as the festival has started to add more “food booths” – featuring fresh and locally grown produce delivered in new and delicious ways!

Here is just some of what you can expect to see at this year’s festival:
