The 2018 All in WDW Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Top 20!

The “party” is finally here, my friends!  Delicious entrees.  Refreshing beverages.  Yes, the 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival kicks off today!

Of course, as I mentioned on our special Festival Preview episode of the WDW Main Street Podcast, I’ll regrettably have to miss out on this year’s fun.  It makes me very sad.

Episode 467 – It’s Food & Wine 2018!

That’s right, folks.  No food pics coming from me this year.  For those, check out the Disney Food Blog.  They do a great job of serving up Epcot’s delectable fare.

In the meantime, after seven straight years of festival attendance, I’ve sampled a lot of Food & Wine’s best … and worst.  I can’t let this unfortunate year slip by without posting my personal recommendations.
