Carving Up Epcot’s Avalanche of Entrees! 45 Must Become 20! VOTE!

Howdy, folks!  Welcome back to “All of Food & Wine” … er, All in WDW!  Been a busy week around these parts.  Lotta “real life” stuff goin’ on.

It probably worked out for the best, I’d say.  I think I wore you out with that last wave of Food & Wine voting!  Lol.

Our job’s not over, however.  We’ve carved Epcot’s avalanche of entrees to a much-more reasonable list of 45 items.  To cut back on cost and calories, we need to dig a bit deeper!
