Epcot 2016 Food and Wine Festival Reviews

The website is putting together its Marketplace-by-Marketplace reviews of the Food and Wine Festival. So as to not make you wade through 30+ individual posts, I am sticking them here – a category of which you can also access by mousing over the Epcot header above and clicking “Food and Wine Festival.” So if you prefer an alphabetical list, you might check that out. Otherwise I will be linking them here in the order that they appear on the map above.

As usual, the website is harder on this stuff than most others. It is your money after all and with most people choosing seven or eight items to try, most of you will want to try to find the most value for your money. That’s why each item comes with separate Taste and Value ratings and each wine or beer comes with the price per ounce at the Festival compared to the store price. It is worth noting that every review I write is “wrong” in that you will have different tastes and sensibilities and what you are ultimately served will differ from what I was served. But this should be a good starting point.

  1. Farm Fresh (incorrectly labeled Florida on the map)
  2. New Zealand (which should actually be number two on the map)
  3. Australia
  4. Mexico
  5. China

Since that was just a couple of months ago, I’m not going to spend much time talking about all that the resort has to offer, how to get over here from the bus or boat, where the ponies are, etc.

Check the brunch post if you missed any of that.
