Welcome to those of you joining me from Focused on the Magic and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail.
Cheese plates, flank steaks and brûlées–oh, my! Disney Parks are just as much about the food as the attractions … and that REALLY comes out during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. It’s a fabulous, boisterous and supremely fun food orgy at one of my favorite places on earth. Just try to top that. Just. Try.
This year, I’m counting down to the Festival by reviewing four or five of the Booth menus each week, making a master list of things to taste and try during my very, very short three day weekend during this year’s Festival.
I’m looking forward to some returning favorites–like Key Lime Wine from the Florida Local Booth–and mourning the loss of some retiring favorites–like the Pumpkin Mousse at Hops & Barely–and hoping to discover some new favorites. (Maybe the bread pudding that’s replaced my beloved mousse?)
I’m also working with some of my favorite foodie-ish bloggers to make a list of new-to-me cocktails that I’m going to try during my weekend in the World. I’m really looking forward to branching out, trying new things … and getting totally wasted while At Disney Again takes photos of me acting like a drunk college kid.
This year, I’m not planning to attend any seminars or special events … that I know of. (My travel partner loves a good surprise.) But I have been keeping up with Festival details in earnest, and I am looking forward to watching this year’s event unfold.
I can’t wait! It’s like Christmas for us Disney foodie fans!
Do you have a trip planned this year? How are you preparing for Food and Wine 2013?
