The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is held each fall, from the end of September through the first week of November. This is not an event that requires an extra ticket.The World Showcase is filled with booths offering food and wine (and beer) for purchase.   You may hear about “sampling” foods, but be clear that there are no free samples; everything costs money.  Read the rest of this entry »
