The Flower & Garden Festival is going now right now at Walt Disney World's Epcot, while Food & Wine provides a counter-programming to the fall Halloween events we profiled earlier today.
For a first-person look at the Food & Festival, check out this report from the 2009 festival from reader Anthony Murphy.
Both events began as ways to draw Florida locals into the park during slower periods between the peak holiday and summer seasons. But both have grown in popularity over the years and now draw fans from around the country who make special trips just for these events.
While both events technically are included with park admission, fully enjoying them requires extra expense, especially the Food & Wine Festival, with its dozens of food booths and special tasting events throughout the park.
What's your experience with either (or both) of these events? We'd love to hear your reports in the comments. Voting starts on Monday at noon Eastern, 9am Pacific, on the Theme Park Insider home page and will be open for 24 hours. Get your campaign on in the comments.

I have been to both events and really the Food and Wine Festival is the one with the special events and stuff to do. Flower and Garden is ok, but its mostly a beautification of EPCOT which is nice on its own part, but thats about it. EPCOT is built for the Food and Wine because it already celebrates culture, learning, food, and booze!
Flower and Garden is nice, but Food and Wine Festival is spectacular and, quite arguably, one of the best theme park events all year round!
