It’s Friday’s “Food” & Garden Feast! – a.k.a, Round 2 of “Voting”!

Good morning, my friends!  Happy Friday!  And, welcome to another fun-filled day of feasting on festival delights!

Thank you for all your support the last few days!

"Not-So-Hidden" Mickey!

I know it’s tough to sift through, and vote on, lists of food items when you haven’t been able to experience them as yet.  Keep in mind … as you are voting for your picks, I’m trying to carve these 25 dishes down to my pre-festival list of 15.  As always, it’s excruciating!

You guys are doing a fantastic job of piling up the votes.

Now, if you’re one of our friends that has been busy this week and has missed out on all the fun, I made things a little bit more simple for you last night.

To get back to all of the polls from one page of links, use the drop-down called 2014 “Food” & Garden Polls at the top of All in WDW.  You can find it under the item called Epcot “Food” & Garden ’14.

Let’s move back into the entrees and rack up more support for the dishes we think might end up being our favorites!

Can We Have Dessert for Breakfast? “Food” & Garden Continues!

Uh, actually, I’m very sorry, but no.  You can’t.

Oh, all right.  How can I say ‘no’ to you guys?!  How can I deny you the experience of digging into Disney’s best, delectable, sugary, bits of tastiness?

Do me a favor.  Finish up the last of the entree’s first, and we’ll take our first look at the desserts!  OK?

Oh, wait!  Did you make your choices in the four polls yesterday?  No?  Then, do not proceed past ‘Go’.  Do not collect … oh, just go back to these links!

“Food” & Garden Polls #2 and 3

“Food” & Garden Poll #4

OK.  Now, you’re set!  Here are the last five “entrees”.  Put them through their “first round” paces, will ya’?!  What looks good, folks!  Remember.  You can choose TWO!

Now, let’s talk about “piggy” cupcakes.  Doesn’t everything taste better with bacon?

There are two groups below.  They include all of “Food” & Garden’s desserts.  Vote for the THREE that you want from each group.  Six votes in total!  Enjoy!

Next polls come tomorrow, my friends.  We’ll be back to take another look through the entrees!  Pass the word!  Get your friends to vote!

One more time today? Pick your “Food” & Garden “must-haves”!

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for dinner. Tonight, it’ll be seasoned and baked orange roughy draped in a blanket of freshly-made corn salsa. Yum!

In the meantime, let’s tackle one more set of Epcot’s culinary creations. You know how it goes … pick TWO!

Oh, and, by the way … if you want to make sure you don’t miss any of these polls, you’re best bet is to stop back and visit All in WDW often throughout the day.

Alternatively, keep an eye on the All in WDW Facebook Page, my Twitter feed, or All in WDW on tumblr.  Every time one of these polls post, it’ll appear automatically in each of those places!

Keep Eating! Uh, Keep “Voting”!

More food!  More food!  It is lunchtime, after all.  Well, it is as of this post’s publishing, at least.

Same drill as earlier today.  Choose the TWO dishes you’d like to try from each group.  Need better descriptions?  Use the drop-down link above … or, just click here.

By the way, all of these polls will remain open for the entirety of our voting blitz through Chef Jens’s kitchen.  If you miss one, don’t panic.  Just go back and make your selections!

Give us that Menu! It’s “Food” & Garden!

Aww, come on.  You knew it was coming!  I just hope, after last week’s marathon, you guys have some energy left for voting.

Do you remember how we “attacked” Food & Wine last August and September?  If you are new to All in WDW, please go back and take a look.  In short, we took, what became, a list of 62 culinary masterpieces and carved them down into an All in WDW Readers’ 2013 Food & Wine Pre-Festival Top 25.

How’d we do it?

Well, before we get there, let me call your attention to another NEW drop-down list at the top of the page.  Call it your informational resource for the few days that lie ahead.  Named “Epcot “Food” & Garden ’14”, you’ll find drop-down links to the following pages:

2014 “Food” & Garden Dishes

2014 “Food” & Garden Desserts

2014 “Food” & Garden Item Descriptions

For the time being, it’s the Descriptions that will become your best friend as we tackle “Food” & Garden’s 2014 menu.  So, how did we knock Food & Wine’s vast array of options down from 62 to 25?  How will we knock “Food” & Garden 2014’s list of 25 entree’s dishes down to a Top 15?  How will we scale its list of 12 desserts down to a Top 10?  It’s easy!

2013's Shrimp and Stone-Ground Grits

2013’s Shrimp and Stone-Ground Grits

Your job is pretty straightforward.  Imagine that you’re making your culinary “wish list”.  After all, that’s what us Disney-lovers do, eh?  Imagine?  You’re on your way to Orlando, and you can’t wait to eat!

Let’s start small.  Of the list of five dishes, below, which TWO can’t you wait to sample?  Go ahead … make your picks!  Oh, and this is VERY important!  Stop back throughout the day.  Additional polls will be added throughout the day … and over the next four to five days.  Oh, and, as I mentioned, the desserts will make their appearances too!

By the time we’re done, you’ll have had three chances to vote for any particular entree’ item.  Our Top 15 will be determined by cumulative overall vote totals over this series of votes.  You’ll have two chances to vote for any particular dessert.  Our Top 10 will be decided in the same way.

See?  It’s easy!  Get to it!  Tell your friends!  The more the merrier!
