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.
