The 16th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is happening every day until Nov. 13, 2011 and many good tastes, classes and music artists have returned. But there’s also a lot of new things to see, do and sample. Here’s a look at what I noticed during my two visits so far. My family and I have sampled many of the food choices, look for a gallery at the end with descriptions.
Epcot has a new tip board display which is not only giving ride wait times, but information about the festival. During the first few days of the festival, the board was showing Tweets with the tag #EpcotFW11, but they seem to have stopped showing those.
New this year is a mobile website guide to the festival. Just scan this code on any of the menu boards to be taken to that particular kiosk’s page in the guide. You can even scan this photo of the code. Go ahead, try it…
The Cheese kiosk had a self-serve touch-screen for placing your order with gift card or credit card. Since they weren’t at all the food kiosks, I assume this is a test they’re running. We found them easy to use.
Here’s a photo gallery of all the foods we’ve sampled so far. All were great. My favorites so far are the pork siders at Hawaii, the macaroni in France and the beef skewer in Argentina. We’ll be adding to this gallery as the we return.
