Plans for Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Big Plans – the Festival starts on Friday (yes, only three days away!)

  • We’re going to start our F&W doings with a special event at Epcot.Β Some of you may know that October 1st is Epcot’s Anniversary and this year marks 30 years since Epcot opened. We made special efforts to attend Epcot’s 25th Anniversary (even though the Disney Corporation waited until the last moments to decide to even do something to commemorate the event) – and this year, we’re doing something special again… We’re going to the D23 Event (link) on Sunday, September 30th.
  • We have visitors coming on Oct 11th (Asta & Mrs Asta), on Oct 18th (Harry & Sally, Al & Judy, and a host of others), and on Nov 3rd (Lisa & Andy). Of course, Calvin, Kate, and Walter are recurring participants.
