TR: Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Postby robbalvey » Sun Nov 14, 2010 4:48 pm

Our "family vacation" at Walt Disney World continues with the final day of Epcot's Food & Wine Festival!

Image
Ahhh...finally made it this year to Epcot's Food and Wine Festival! We did the Wisconsin Cheese Festival a couple of weeks ago which was nice, but not as awesome as this!

Image
KidTums wants to stop in Mexico for some Beaner Boat Ride action!

Image
At KidTums school her teacher told us "KidTums says she's been to Mexico and keeps taking about some boat ride she went on..." We had to explain, "Yes, she's been to real Mexico...but she's actually talking about the ride at Epcot!"

Image
KidTums version goes "The Three Caballeros...The Three Caballeros...They say birds are made out of feathers!" lol

Image
"Hey Piers....Om nom nom!"

Image
When in Mexico...

Image
They serve real Polish people here!

Image
Hi Wes...How's it going?

Image
I have waited a whole year for these!!!

Image
The awesome Chinese Potstickers make Elissa's hair do funky things!

Image
Even on the last day of Food and Wine, if you get here early, you won't wait in line! (Hey, I made a Rhyme!)

Image
Ok, that sounds pretty awesome!

Image
"It's gonna look the same coming out!"

Image
Mmm...I love Italians!

Image
I can't wait for the 2011 TPR Japan trip!

Image
OM! NOM NOM!!!

Image
Surprise! Jim Disney is now working at Epcot modeling Domo calendars! Bizarre!

Image
I can think of at least one TPR member who needs this!

Image
"I miss Japan!"

Image
This makes me miss Lotte World!

Image
It's a "Women's massager!" lol

Image
Domo invasion!!!

Image
"I could have used this in Wisconsin!"

Image
"Waffles and a Stella from Belgium! How's it going Benny!"

Image
I never in a million years thought I'd be saying this...Canada is AWESOME!

Image
Aarrgghh! Spicy sausage and cheese soup! The absolute BEST combo at the Food & Wine Festival!

Image
Anyone remember the Wonders of Life Pavilion?

Image
During Food and Wine festival it's used to house some of the displays.

Image
The inside of the pavilion has changed so much you can't even recognize it as Wonders of Life.

Image
Looks totally different now.

Image
This used to be "Body Wars", a simulator ride through the human body. (not kidding!)

Image
The old exit to Body Wars.

Image
Looks like the ride may still be back there, just all covered up now.

Image
In this theater was the most controversial film in Disney parks history, "The Making of Me!" (Look it up on YouTube!)

Image
It used to show a movie with Martin Short explaining in graphic detail how babies are made, but now it's just about drinking wine...I guess it's still sort of the same premise...

Image
This was the entrance to Cranium Command. One of my favourite old "side attractions." Was a great funny show. Look it up on YouTube.

Image
The old snack and food areas.

Image
The AnaComical Players used to perform here.

Image
This was a great send off to this years Food and Wine Festival. Light crowds, amazing food, great drinks! If you've never done this event, it's arguably the best seasonal event on any Disney property!

Image
I still have not been on this ride since it became Ellen's Lesbian Hour.

Image
OMG!!! Epcot has a Robo-Coaster??? Why didn't anyone tell me???

Image
Mmmm....Epcot... My favorite theme park in the world!

We'll have more updates soon. Remember, if you like the mini-updates, post a comment and let us know!

"fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo Rental Land" is probably the best addition ever added to Minimal Kingdom! :lover: Great TR, as usual.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Awesome update Robb! I agree, the spicy sausage and cheese soup at Canada is the best!

Robb -

You haven't been on Universe of Energy since 1996? How is this even possible?

I think I've ridden it at least five time *on two separate trips to EPCOT* this year (I've actually been to WDW three times this year on separate trips. I know, it's a sickness, I'm dialing it back, starting by not renewing my season pass. You'll be happy to know I didn't ride the big (gay boat ride? no, that's the Land) lesbian dinosaur ride last week when I was there. For once. (But I always make time for Turtle Talk.)

Yes, it's outdated, tone-deaf compared to today's environmental issues, and incredibly corny - but it also has Alex Trebeck and Activia Lady and Bill Nye the used-to-be-popular-Science guy!

I go because the music is awesome and the pavilion itself is still rather spectacular.

Guaranteed Fresh or Your Money Back!

QFT. I had three bowls of cheddar cheese soup when I ate at Le Cellier last month.

I didn't know Epcot had a RoboCoaster, either! I need to get down there again!

Great stuff, I love the "Mini" reports, makes them MUCH easier to read.

Looks like another great family day.

I actually haven't been in there since 1989! I dunno, I rode it once and was like "meh...I don't ever need to do this again" and I married someone who feels the same way...so I haven't been back! :lol:

We were actually joking that we should do it this trip just because...

That was pretty much my reasoning the last time I did it.
