Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2021

Hello everyone and happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a good week. I wanted to share my first experience at Disney World’s International Food & Wine Festival. For those of you that don’t know Disney is celebrating their 50th anniversary. Every year from July to November, there are various booths set up in of the four parks called Epcot. Each booth represents a different country where you can taste different foods and drinks. This year there were about 32 booths set up. I did not go to every single booth, but went to about half of them. Most of the workers behind the booths are from that particular country. Due to Covid-19, there were no wine tastings, demonstrations by chefs, seminars, etc… Hopefully next year all of that will resume again. It was a lot of fun trying different foods and drinks from the booths I went to. If you are a foodie and love trying new foods, I would highly suggest this festival. Have a good weekend!!
