Newest Epfood Fest
Today, Disney announced on its official parks blog that when the International Food & Wine Festival returns to Epcot --it will run a record 53 days, from September 19 - November 10. That;s a week longer than last year.
But you don't need to wait that long to line up at food kiosks along World Showcase lagoon. There's a new Epfood Fest in town.
We mentioned a few weeks ago on Theme World that when the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival returns, it will feature a host of "Outdoor Kitchens" (March 5 - May 18) -- expanding on the handful of offerings tried out last year.
Now Disney has released the full mouth-watering menu (quoted below)
