Anyone Hungry? Food and Wine Time at Epcot


Our trip was fortunate enough to fall with in the most delicious time of year at Walt Disney World, Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival Time! Each year, the World Showcase in Epcot hosts a Food and Wine Festival bringing culinary delights and a wide array of beer and wines.
