Updates on the 2013 Epcot Food & Wine Festival and Spice Road Table construction
Written by Oak A
The 2013 edition of Epcot's renowned International Food & Wine Festival has begun, and I recently travelled to the park to engorge myself in what the seasonal event has to offer. The event consists of 30 individual stand positioned around Epcot's World Showcase, each representing a different country, region, or cuisine, along with 4 stand representing different classifications of alcoholic beverages, i.e. "Craft Beers." Each stand offered 2-4 dishes, most including dessert, and multiple beverage selections. The stands are merely counters with kitchens as opposed to constructs where one can dine indoors, instead seating has been assembled around each stand.Tweet
I dined at the following stands:
Every single dish was enjoyable, and quite filling. I had originally intended to order a dish from each stand, but that plan capitulated soon after beginning my counter-clockwise journey around the Showcase.
Due to the amount of images having been captured, I will include a link to a slideshow that features all of the festival's stands (sans the American Adventure Coffee Cart, due to my camera's battery's passing): Epcot International Food & Wine Festival photo slideshow
The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival began September 27th, and ends November 11th.
In addition to the images of the F&W Festival, I also snapped some pictures of an ongoing construction project at Epcot, the Moroccan pavilion's new Spice Road Table restaurant. The restaurant is due to open by the year's end; given the site's current condition, expect some Imagineer activity soon! You can see what I mean by following this link to view a slideshow of the construction site.
