2018 Food and Wine Festival Picks Recapped

Just 22 days now until my Walt Disney World vacation. Woo hoo! When I last visited WDW in 2015, I spent only one day at EPCOT, and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. I had a lunch reservation at San Angel Inn Restaurante. Well, once I’d had my lunch, I was too full to enjoy any of the festival booths. Lesson learned. This year I have no meal reservations for my EPCOT day. I am going to enjoy the food booths this year!

Thanks to DFB (Disney Food Blog) Guide to the 2018 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, I was able to make some choices in advance. Listed below are the booths and foods that I will choose from.

  • Wine & Dine Studio-Butternut Squash Ravioli
  • Active Eats-Loaded Mac and Cheese
  • Hawaii-Kahlua Pork Slider
  • Refreshment Port-Beef Brisket Poutine
  • Canada-Canadian Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Soup served with a Pretzel Roll
  • France-Crème Brulee
  • Belgium-Belgian Waffle
  • Hops and Barley-New Brunswick Slider
  • Germany-Roast Bratwurst in a Pretzel Roll
  • Brazil-Crispy Pork Belly with Black Beans, Tomato and Onions
  • Canada-Le Cellier Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon
  • Italy-Cannoli
  • Ireland-Roasted Irish Sausage

That’s a lot of choices, but the portions are small, and Mike and I will split everything. It’ll be just enough to get a taste of each item. This is so exciting! We will eat around the world. 🙂

I also found in the DFB Guide to the 2018 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival a Vegetarian Crawl. We have three vegetarians in the family so I thought it was worth a look. Here’s what they suggest:

  • Chocolate Studio-Sweet Dark Chocolate Raspberry Tart with Whipped Cream
  • Earth Eats-IMPOSSIBLE “Burger” Slider with Wasabi Cream and Spicy Asian Slaw on a Sesame Seed Bun
  • Active Eats-Active Eats Energy Bar Bites: a mixture of Chocolate, Nuts, Dried Fruit and Dates
  • Cheese Studio-Maple Boursin Cheesecake with Maple Bourbon Cream, Caramel and Pecan Crunch
  • India-Warm Indian Bread with Pickled Garlic, Mango Salsa and Coriander Pesto Dips
  • Greece- Vegan Loaded Greek “Nachos”: Pita Chips, Meatless Sausage Crumbles and Vegan Tzatziki
  • Ireland-Warm Irish Cheddar Cheese and Stout Dip with Irish Brown Bread
  • Belgium-Belgian Waffle with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream
  • Africa-Spicy Ethiopian Red Lentil Stew with Vegan Yogurt and Quinoa
  • Brazil-Pao de Queijo: Brazilian Cheese Bread

The featured photo for today is from three years ago. We’ve been through a lot since then, but through God’s grace and blessings, we are more ready than ever to enjoy this vacation/family reunion. Bring it on!

Meet me at the Kingdom.

…And Four More Restaurants

Day 273 in eating my way around the world and meeting up with Mickey

My plan for today was to continue my research on healthy choices at the restaurants we will frequent at Walt Disney World in October.  My go-to site for this is AllEars.Net.  Seriously, you have to check out this site!  It is simply a Disneyphiles dream.

Here we go again:

  1. Artist’s Point at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge  for dinner: Healthiest Appetizer: Signature Field Greens Salad  Thing I may order: The salad aforementioned or Artisnal Cheese Selection  Entree: Healthiest entree–Grilled Filet Mignon OR Cornish Hen  What I will order: Cedar Plank-Roasted King Salmon  (I’ve had this each time we’ve been there.  It is amazing!) Dessert: Healthiest option:Artisnal Cheese Selection  What I will order-Vairhona Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee AND 6 spoons!  I really want to try this, even just one spoonful.  🙂
  2. Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant at Pleasure Island (or whatever it’s called nowadays-it’ll always be Pleasure Island to me!) for dinner:  This will be just Mike and I, so we will probably leave a lot of food behind.  We get a date night out of the parks; I’m so excited! The healthiest appetizer on the menu is Heritage Tomato Salad.  What I will probably order: (Well, I need to ask about the mysterious Soul Soup!) But I’m thinking the Luscious Tart.  Entree: The healthiest things are probably Braised Be. Beef OR Mammy’s Roast Chicken  But I will probably order Bangers and Booz (one of my all time favorite meals in England or Ireland). And I know Mike will want the Fish and Chips, and we’ll split a side of roasted root vegetables.  Dessert: the healthiest choice-Moore Street Market   But I will try Trifle Sinful OR Dunbrody Kiss (which is described as “chocolate, add chocolate and add some more.”  Oh, yeah!
  3. 50’s Prime Time Cafe at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for lunch:  Appetizers: Healthiest choice: Cousin Amy’s Lettuce Wedge What we will share-Fried Herb and Garlic Cheese.  Entree: The healthiest things on the menu are probably 50’s Prime Time Blue Plate Special “a healthy seasonal special” OR the Salmon or Chicken Caesar Salad  I will order one of those three    Dessert: Healthiest choice: No Sugar Added Cheesecake  What I will order 50’s Boston Cream Parfait AND S’mores AND 6 forks and spoons.
  4. San Angel Inn Restaurante at EPCOT for lunch-Appetizers: probably the 2 healthiest things to choose from are Ensalade Cesar (Caesar Salad) OR  Coctel de Camaron (shrimp cocktail) I would try either.  Entree: Healthiest choices-

    “Loma de Puerco en Pipian – Pork tenderloin served over roasted vegetables and “pipian” – pumpkin, chiles and almond sauce” OR “Pescado a la Veracruzana – Catch of the day prepared with capers, olives, bell peppers, Spanish onions, and tomatoes, seasoned with white wine and spices, served over poblano rice.”   Either way, Mike and I will share.  Dessert: Healthiest option: “Crema Bavaria – creamy Bavarian mousse served with mixed berries, cinnamon and orange liqueur and vanilla sauce”  I will either order that or “Mousse de Chocolate – Chocolate mousse and almond brittle candy.”  Say it with me now, “And 6 Spoons!”

  5. That’s about it.  However, The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is happening while we’re there, so I know we’ll sample some goodies there, too.  More about that later.

Meet you at the Kingdom!
