Epcot fans, it's decision time. The park's top two annual events are matching up in the first round of the 2011 Theme Park Insider Tournament: America's Best Theme Park Event.

It's time to pick between the International Flower & Garden Festival and the International Food & Wine Festival.

I've been to Flower & Garden, but not Food & Wine. Regardless, F&G is a bit more kid and photographer oriented, while F&W is for those who love to eat. I fall into the latter category - which is why I have to run every day to stop from becoming a gelatinous mass.

I just got back from the Garden and Flower Festival and I have been to the Food Festival. By far I would choose the garden and flowers because you can get international food anytime at EPCOT. The flowers are so well designed and its unbelieveable to see the work of these gardeners. Get there and see it for yourself!

Food and Wine for me!

And not because he used my picture!

I have been to both, F&G is good, F&W is fantastic!

I've visited F&G once, and whilst it was beautiful the next time I visited was during F&W and I've made sure all visits since take place in October so I can enjoy F&W's offerings.

Flower and Garden its more faimly friendly. And makes Epcot a turly beauitful park. Food and Wine, good reson to drink around the world..And to this reader very un-Disney.
