    It would be nice to see some of these topiaries make it over to the Magic Kingdom. Like the sea serpent on the lawn of Cinderella’s Castle. Even if they were outside the park, along the monorail route. Especially that tick-tock crocodile one…….it was fantastic looking.

    Great pics!

    While I didn’t see any of the special seminars, I enjoyed the Flower festival. It adds so much to the beauty of EPCOT. I especially enjoyed the pineapple booth with the adult versions of the Dole Whip. YUM. Hope those come back for Food & Wine!

  • Personally, I loved the food booths at the festival this year. I realize they weren’t as crowded as at Food and Wine, but this was only the first year. I hope they give them a second chance.

      I hope so to, Disney need to realise that the majority of its Guests to Orlando are tourist. Who plan out vacations months in advance. The Food and Wine Festival crowd who are the new target audience have likely already planned Oct trips for F & W so were unaware of the Food Booths. Even if it doesn’t take off like F & W I still hope Disney keeps the booths. It might offer an alternative to F & W Festival with less crowds.

    This has to be a no-brainer for Disney. They make more money with the food & wine booths and more choices for the guests is always a good thing, especially with how difficult it can be to get a dining reservation at one of the world showcase restaurants. This really is a win-win for everybody. So I assume that means we’ll never see them again.

    • Except that the booths were not busy. So, either they were poorly marketed to guests or they were not popular with guests. Which leaves the whole question of the booths up in the air for next year’s event.

    I have a theory on the food booths. They weren’t announced till about 2 months out from the start of the Festival. So most folks already had their dining plans booked, and didn’t have room for this addition. I enjoy the food booths so much that I ended up canceling a dining rez at the Hacienda de San Angel, just to make room for a tasty meal around the World Showcase Lagoon. I’m betting that they’ll not only promote the fire out of these booths for next year, but now that people know that this option exists they’ll be much more popular next year.
