Order "taste of Scandinavia" in Scandinavia (of course) It has Herring with a sauce that it will make you ask for more.
Order the lamb chop at Australia.
The escargots in France are good as always. Add a Chardonnay.
The Lobster and Scallop Fisherman's Pie in Ireland is a must!!! Their chocolate cake is nothing special though.
Italy's cannoli are good.
I haven't tried everything, so fill up the gaps with anything else delicious that you have tried.
Bon Apetit :)

From Lauren HayhurstI'd second the cannoli, delicious.

Try the Mahi Mahi in Brazil...I ran back round to get it and it was worth the rush! Also got a Caphrina there, yummy cocktail.
I got the cheese selection from the Land of Cheese and even tried sushi for the first time from Japan - it was tuna roll and perfect amount of spicy.
The Bunny Chow from New Zealand was really good too...like a yorkshire pud smothered in gravy for any of you Brits out there!
Wish I coulda gone back for more!
From Caroline DavisI wasn't planning on trying the Bunny Chow at South Africa (seriously, my list is already too long) but comparing it to a yorkshire pudding with gravy? Now I have to.

This thread is really good for me, hope there are some more tips. Going to F&W for the first time in 13 days! Exciting!

Set a budget of $75, and try to get one item from every kiosk in the park.
From Lauren HayhurstCaroline you're going to have a great time! I went on the first day it opened - luckily coincided with a trip already booked. The atmosphere was brilliant, really buzzing. It was too hot in the middle of they day to stand and queue for the kiosks at the entrance to World Showcase, so we headed straight to Japan and started part way round... If you're over 21, definitly try some of the wines (red esp) as they're only 2-3 bucks and a really good selection. The portion is enough to give you a good warmth and small enough to let you try a few!

We ended up being at Singapore for the show at USA so we enjoyed our Singapore Sling (gorgeous cocktail) listening to some swinging choons.
I had also run to the Festival tent (near Mission Space) to grab a coupla festival passports, and everywhere we ate/drank I got a stamp...but I also asked people to write something in their home language, so I've got some lovely writing too!
BTW, Bunny Chow is veggie! Not actually rabbit...! And I highly recommend it!
From Ray SchroederBeer flights a must. Key West beer at Craft Beer was really good. My favorites....
