Epcot 2017 Food and Wine Festival Merchandise

It’s a few weeks late, but here we are with this year’s spread of Food and Wine Festival merchandise.

As with the last few Festivals, a lot of it features Figment. There are a couple of good locations to check if any of this stuff jumps out at you. The Festival Center, which I outline here, may be the best.

There are also two stores on the walk towards World Showcase from Future World. MouseGear also stocks some items and there are some popup stores around World Showcase offering impulse buy opportunities. There’s also more than 40 items available on the Shop Disney Parks app.

Review: Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

We venture out to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground for Hoop-Dee-Doo-Musical Revue, the dinner show that debuted all the way back on June 30, 1974, or the day before this website was founded.

Whenever Fort Wilderness comes up, I feel like half the time is devoted to trying to explain how to get to Pioneer Hall/Settlement Depot, which is where you’ll find the Hoop-Dee-Doo Theater/Pioneer Hall, Trail’s End, the takeaway quick service, Mickey’s Backyard BBQ, the resort store, the marina, etc. For more detailed transportation information or to read my review on weekend brunch at Trail’s End, see this post.
