WDW Trip Planning: Food & Wine Festival and MNSSHP Food

Let’s talk about the food I look forward to eating on our next WDW trip in 3 days.

First Disney Trip-108

Not only will we be visiting plenty of food marketplaces at Epcot for the F&W Festival, but we will also be attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, where there are several specialty items to consider putting in ma belly.

Below is the full list of offerings at the Food & Wine Festival and I have highlighted something at each marketplace that I would try if I had to pick at least one thing from each one (except for the beer-only locations – I’m not a beer person). I know I won’t come anywhere near trying them all, nor would I want to spend money on an item I’m not excited about, but figured it would be fun to mentally take a trip around the World (Showcase F&W Marketplaces). There are definitely a few that are a must-try, but I will most likely take a glance at the offerings in person and decide then what to ultimately get. Another method is just to stroll around the World Showcase with our map and make stops along the way.

Let’s take a looksie, shall we?

As much as I claim to love the F&W Festival, you’d be shocked to hear that we’ve only been to it one time. Gasp! I know. We have scheduled ourselves to go year after year and due to reschedulings, end up going a different time. We enjoyed trying a few things at the Flower & Garden Festival this year now that they offer food as well. But I didn’t go crazy, unfortunately.

This time, my hopes are to give you a F&W photo and video post extravaganza…If I can remember, I sure do have quite a few alcoholic drinks highlighted on that list tee-hee.
