Trip Report EPCOT Food and Wine and Mickey Party, etc. DRUNKS!

Jump to last reply

We go almost every year for the EPCOT Int'l Food and Wine Fest. Seems some things change for the better, some not so, but the one thing you can count on is everything being more expensive. The wine seminars are less frequent and are between 10-15 per person. We sampled Argentinian wine this year, it was a good seminar and quite informative. Several new booths were added- Caribbean, South African, a few others. Food was very good- especially Ireland's Fisherman pie, France's Coq au Vin and Japan's Tuna rolls. A new craft beer booth was added. Even though we nibbled all day, we had the family together for a meal in Mexico. Even at 4:30, it was packed, service was slow and food mediocre. We used to go on Saturday night to the Dinner for the Senses, but an outrageous price of $150 per person (including park admission) discouraged us. They began having primarily Disney chefs and $20-50 wines. For that price, we'd rather go to a Wine Spectator event where you sample $100 reserves. Also, the concert series was strange and I had only heard of one artist! If you go, don't go on the Saturday that they drop the prices for Floridians. The crowds were huge, many people came in groups with matching shirts that had slogans such as "drinking gang" . By late afternoon, it was nothing more than a drunk fest and we saw some bad behavior and language- even though there were plenty of kids around. Next year, we will go on Thursday and go to the Mickey Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom on Friday.
The Halloween party was definitely fun. The prices vary by night,age and advance purchase. We adults paid $67.95 each to watch our grandchild having a great time. However, we loved it too- the parades were spectacular, the events such as "dancing with the villains" were cute and there was trick or treating and plenty of candy for all. What was most fun were all the costumes- both on adults and kids. Magic Kingdom serves no alcohol and it was a nice crowd!
We stayed at Orange Lake resort where we own timeshare property. It's a Holiday Inn resort now, and it is fantastic. They have a water park with a beach and many activities, plus several restaurants, golf courses, and organized activities for all ages. There's a large Publix food mart at the entrance. We were able to save lots of money by making large breakfasts and having our own dinners and snacks. You can completely be car free once you are at the resort, as it has a resort shuttle and a Disney Shuttle.

If you choose to go to the fest at EPCOT- go during the week and get a menu of the food options online. You can't sample it all !
