Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Orlando, Florida - Review Experience

Going around the world experiencing Food, Wine and Fun!

One of my favorite times to go to the parks is during the fall. The summer heat is starting to disappear replaced by cooler temperature that makes visiting all the attractions worthwhile. Personally I have no idea how visitors have the courage to travel thousands of miles to hustle through 60+ minutes lines roasting on 100 degree temperature. 

Epcot Food and Wine Festival.
