Adults Only Disney World Trip Report-Part III

Welcome to the 3rd and last installment of trip reports from my recent Adults Only trip to Disney World.

As promised this post is about the premier event at Disney World for adults: Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival.

Compared to other theme parks, Epcot is an International Food & Wine Festival year round, with its pavilions representing 11 different countries, 14 different table service restaurants, and numerous counter service and snack locations where you can obtain a variety of different cuisines, beers, and wines.

For its 14th annual International Food & Wine Festival, Epcot keeps all of the above open and adds 27 additional buildings with Food, Wine, and Beer offering representing different cities or regions from all over the world.

The event is also full of wine and food seminars and special events to appeal casual fan and the true wine aficionado alike.

For 6 full weeks Epcot is the place to be for adults looking to experience a Disney World event that is targeted with them in mind.

During the day many of the seminars are hosted at the Festival Center, which is hosted in the Wonders Of Life Pavilion in the Future World Section of Epcot between Ellen’s Energy Adventure and Mission Space.

You will find both cooking demonstrations as well as wine tastings hosting by representatives of the winery being featured. Although we did not attend one of these demonstrations this year, in the past they were very informative and a great way to learn more about wines.

The History of Beer

Once again Samuel Adams has hosted the History of Beer demonstration, located near the American Pavilion in the World Showcase. Here you learn about the important elements of that go into crafting Samuel Adams and taste 4 different varieties of their beer. The demonstration is free of charge and always fun.

The Food Kiosks

For us the best part of the F&W Festival is the food. With so many options to choose from it is easy to spend an afternoon or two or three just walking around the World Showcase trying out the different choices.

This year some of our favorites were:

Athens Greece: Greek Salad & Chicken Souvlaki with Tzatziki

Buenos Aires, Argentina: Beef Empanada with Tomato Salsa

Cape Town, South Africa: Seared Beef Tenderloin with Sweet Potato Purée, Mango Barbecue Sauce

Montreal, Canada: Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup

New Orleans, Louisiana: Praline Bread Pudding, Bourbon Caramel Sauce

Hops & Barley: Boston-style Crab Cake with Cabbage Slaw and Remoulade

Also, being a big Samuel Adams beer fan, I loved the fact that they had 10 different Samuel Adams Varieties available : Samuel Adams Boston Ale (draft), Samuel Adams Boston Lager (draft), Samuel Adams Octoberfest (draft), Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat (draft), 14th Anniversary Festival Beer (draft), Samuel Adams Light, Samuel Adams Cream Stout, Samuel Adams Pale Ale, Samuel Adams Honey Porter, & Samuel Adams Black Lager

The Entertainment
While you are enjoying all of the great food and drinks that are available there is plenty of entertainment in Epcot’s World Showcase. You can watch the great live bands: British Invasion, Off Kilter, & Mo’Rockin or you can watch the nightly concerts during the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. During our trip we caught the show by Kool & The Gang.

Not To Be Missed
Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival is a great event and is the reason that many adults choose October to flock to Disney World without their children.

An Adult Only trip can be a lot of fun doing different things than what you would do on your family vacation. See what Disney World has to offer and you will be amazed at all of the fun you can have without kids.
