Epcot's Food and Wine Festival report
Walt Disney World:
In a few words...YUMMY!
Argentina continues to be my favorite marketplace with its delicious beef empanadas as well as the Beef with chimichurri. Their Cabernet (red wine) was great too.
Other highlights: "taste of Scandinavia" from (guess) with salmon, herring and shrimp is heavenly. The lobster and seafood pie from Ireland is tasty. The filet mignon from Canada is to die for. The lamb chop from Australia has that greasy taste that meat lovers (me) enjoy. On the dissapointment side was the ceviche from Florida's marketplace and the lemon/blueberries dessert at "Desserts and Champagne".
Anyone salivating around here?
Very good stuff! My family loves the Food and Wine Festival. Here are some of our favorites from around the world

Ropa Veja (Carribean)

And many, many more!

I just got back from disney last week and mine was Mexico. It was a small tortia with shrimp and it was to die for. Also My friend got shrimp on the barbi from australia and that was also very good even not being such a big shrimp fan.
Chris said, "...big shrimp ..."
That made me smile.
I really liked the lobster rolls this year. They were far better than they've been in the past with giant chunks of claw meat and very little mayo. If you're paying out of pocket, they're still a little absurd at $7.50, but if you're using a snack credit on the Dining Plan, it's an obvious choice that didn't disappoint as it has in the past.
$7.50 is very reasonable if it's a decent sized lobster roll. Places in NY and Jersey that specialize in them run into the $15-18 range.
They're pretty small (think 3 or 4 bites). There's probably about 2 OZ of lobster.
Are there plenty of vegetarian/vegan options at the Food & Wine festival?

Bryce, there was a Vegan booth this year, but that's it IIRC.

The booth called Terra had vegan food, I liked the Trick'n Chick'n, and several cheese based foods were scattered in other booths. The link below has the 2012 offerings.
I had 12 different dishes. My favorites were France's Coq au Vin, Ireland's Fisherman's Pie, Morocco's Harissa Chicken Roll (late addition), South Africa's Seared Filet of Beef and Canada's Wild Mushroom Beef Filet.
The vegan chili was good
