As somebody who has been to both, CA version looked like amateur hour compared to EPCOT's. They simply did not have the space or, I guess, effort to put on a good one! I mean, there are more CA wines (many owned by people that have done Business with Disney such as Fess Parker) at EPCOTS than DCA?!?!
Sadly, Its not the same at all!
I fully understand canceling it during construction, but I very much hope it returns in 2013. We've always had a fantastic time at California Food and Wine.
