Report from EPCOT Food and Wine Festival 2010

I’m very much enjoying my first day at the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.  The crowds have not been too bad, but it is busy. My usual strategy of hitting the food booths early didn’t work as there were already long lines by 11:05am. But waiting wasn’t that bad and the reward considerable.

There are about the same number of booths as last year. Down from the peak of a few years ago. This undoubtedly saves on labor costs, which I don’t blame Disney for in this economy. Fewer booths means more people in each line. Which does mean people are likely to spend less over all.

Newly emphasized this year is the variety of beer internationally. I would luke to see more from specialty and craft labels,  although I understand they don’t bring in the big sponsorship dollars. 

The food did not disappoint. I dis not yet sample South Korea and Singapore, two of this year’s new countries. But what I had was amazing. Belgium’s Mussels with a buttery sauce, was the clear stand out. However I also enjoyed a Portobello Slider that was Sunshine Seasons contribution to the festival.

A few photos from today are below.
