No actual food pictures? Bummer...The stands at the EPCOT F&W Festival are pretty generic. It's good to see pictures of the menus, but I'd trade every one of those pictures for some food porn.

How was it? Have you been before? What day of the week did you visit? Did you do any special events, tastings, or any seminars/demonstrations in the old Wonders of Life Pavilion?

We almost always plan our Orlando vacations around the EPCOT F&W Festival. We were there last year, and plan to return next year as well. It is by far the best seasonal event at any theme park in the country.

Haha- I was thinking the exact same thing Russel. Give me some mouth watering food photos to make me more jealous

I request there to be food photos as well. I don't know what 80% of the foods listed are. I would have liked a description of the foods too. This way I can learn about the mulicultural foods and how diverse they all are.

Yes, I apologize I did not include any food photographs in the writeup. My trip to Epcot for the F&W Festival was a bit like the plot of a stale Nicolas Cage action film; I only had roughly 30 minutes of battery time and around 40 pictures. I didn't think I would be able to photograph the food, the stands, and the Spice Road table consummately with these capabilities. After all, I was unable to photograph one of the stands.

To answer your questions Russell:
-Twice prior, I have greatly enjoyed in every time.
-Friday. The stands had virtually no waits up until 5-6:00pm, so I was able to flâneur around the Showcase. I rode a few rides in Future World, and when I returned to the Showcase for a concert (the soft-listening band Air Supply), the stands were packed. I suppose many people with the post-5:00pm, weekday pass had arrived by then.
-No, however I did peruse the displays in the pavilion. If I had to summarize, it seemed to be plucked from the airwaves of the Food Channel or HGTV. While I was there, a cheese seminar was taking place so listened in for a while. I will say it was Gouda, but the dessert seminar would probably have been Feta. Classic cheese joke :).
