EPOCT Food & Wine Festival - The Booths
EPOCT Food & Wine Festival - The Booths
This is the second part of my review of the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival. The first part dealt with the general information about the festival, this part now looks at the booths and what they have to offer. The third part of this series will give my personal view of some of the items on offer that I have tried over the years. Each time we go we try to sample all the new countries for that year to build up a new list of favourites.
Disney calls the food booths ' international marketplaces”. The dishes are served in quite small portions, as you will see from the photos, and the average cost is about $5. The list of ‘countries’ also includes some each year that are unique to Disney.
These include Desserts and Champagne, Brewer’s Collection and Hops & Barley. The food served at these ‘countries’ is really just bar food or desserts so I mostly avoid them for other tastes.
Also for the first time this year there was a Cranberry Bog display. This tells the story behind how the cranberry is grown and finally reaches your table as juice. If you don’t know how they harvest all the berries then this is a display that you must see.
Even if the countries with Pavilions around the World showcase have booths then still check them out. As you will see from the menu list below that they offer different tastes to the main restaurants. I have listed below the main items for each county while leaving out the drinks that are offered at each one.
Just remember when you start your journey round the stands you need to have plenty of $5 bills with you because this is not a low cost adventure.
