International Food and Wine Festival news - 2010 International Food and Wine Festival World Showcase Promenade kiosks and menus
F&WF is one of my favorite WDW events! I usually plan to spend the whole day at Epcot, but usually half the day is spent in World Showcase wandering from booth to booth.
If you want to try everything, pace yourself and share with someone. Just have a bite at each booth rather than ordering an entire sample plate for yourself. If you just want to try a few things here and there, then by all means, hog that plate and enjoy it!
They’ve made it easier to handle money by offering wristbands that you can load with money like a gift card. I didn’t think this would help much so I didn’t get one last year, but I will this year - it looked so much easier to just hold up your bracelet at each booth, rather than fishing through your pockets for singles and change, waiting to get change back, etc.
As far as how much to plan on spending, it depends on how much you want to sample. Each plate is somewhere between $3-6, as I remember. The “wine” part of F&W can get a little pricier. So if you plan to eat and drink your way across the entire World Showcase, it can get pretty expensive. If you want to sample here and there, it’s very reasonable, IMHO.
Have a GREAT time!!! :happy:
