We have reservations for Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2014!

We were able to get all of the reservations that we wanted, except two

  • Dining Through the Decades: A Tribute to Walt Disney – we wanted reserved seating (the only way that doing events in the World Showplace is enjoyable for us), all sold out by the time I got to speak to a live person (on hold for 40 minutes or so)
  • Bootcamp “I’ll take Manhattans!” – this was removed from the schedule, so no bootcamp for us (we can still get a great Manhattan at bluezoo with Lisa & Andy if we want)

What are we looking forward to repeating?

  • Via Napoli Beer & Food Pairing with our niece (2011 and 2013)
The lasagna glamor shot... you can really see all the layers of flavor

And lastly, what’s new for us this year?

  • Italian Food & Wine Pairing at Via Napoli
  • French Regional Lunch – Alsace
  • Sunday Morning with Alex Guarnicelli
  • Andrew Zimmern Culinary Demonstration (we haven’t followed his bizarre foods stuff on tv, but we’ve seen some of his regional food shows and are really interested to see how he is live and in person)
  • Emily Ellyn Culinary Demonstration (she was a contestant on the Next Food Network Star the year that they had teams and mentors)
