Just got back from WDW! Food and Wine Fest was awesome! The cheese plates from Ireland and the Cheese booth are amazing!

I hope everyone has a great time at the SSC meet!

We are looking forward to trying the cheese plates too! What other yummy snacks and drinks did you try?


I am so looking forward to the warm FL weather, it really cooled down over the weekend. It is 44 degrees right now, which is way to cold for me!

I had the lamb chop from Australia, lettuce wrap and mung bean pancake from South Korea (yum), the grapefruit beer in Germany, the ravioli in Italy, seafood shepherds pie and the cheese plate in Ireland, the cheese plate from the cheese booth and I think that is it. All delish. Need to visit other booths this time.

I had a grapefruit ale thing in Italy (the country, not the pavilion), and it was amazing. Wonder if its similar to the German one. How'd you like it?

I had the grapefruit beer as part of a flight. It was good but a bit too sweet for beer. Much preferred the selections over at the craft beer kiosk. If you like hoppy beers, try the Devil's Triangle. The Full Sail IPA was good also. I really liked the Purple Haze, had that a few times. I preferred the cheese plate from Ireland over the Cheese kiosk by Germany. The Kielbasa from Poland is very good, and I liked the chicken sausage from Canada. Also liked the corn dish from the Florida kiosk. Everything I had was good, wish I could back for more!

If you are a Chase card holder, check out the lounge area behind the Ghiradelli display in the Welcome Center.

The Apple Wine from Canada was DELICIOUS!!!!!! I wish I would've had it more.

The cheddar cheese soup in Canada was okay. I'd skip it.

I also had the Escargot in France it was very good. It was very flavorful and was very garlicy.

At the cheese booth I had the the cheese fondu with the sourdough roll. I would skip that too. It was very tasty, but not worth the money. Have the cheese plate instead!!

I wish I had more time at Food and Wine!! There was so much to try and so little time (and money!)

I have a Niege seminar booked for this Sunday at the F&W. After trying the apple wine last year, I was happy to see the seminar fit into my schedule.

Just got back myself!

I had a great time as usual, but I literally lived in Epcot the entire time. The. entire. time. And i didn't mind one bit. The best pavilion? Probably Hawaii. Goooood stuff in there.

I got a couple hours in Animal Kingdom one morning solely because I took the Wild Africa Trek and did a couple hours at Magic Kingdom for the Halloween party before it washed me out with too much rain.

I'm going to read backwards for a bit to catch up.

I wasn't there last year for MK's 40th but was determined to be there for epcot's 30th (my favvy fav park!) plus D23 was holding a big ol birthday party at World Showplace with all kinds of fun presentations.

The merch line in the morning was disastrous, but actually getting the merch in the store was easy peasy. The birthday celebration at America Gardens theater was pathetic (the VP of Epcot & VP of disney parks are terrible speakers; not one audio or video clip of Walt either) but the fireworks show was wonderful. All in all, not too bad. They also did a special park map & had buttons.

I didn't think I would like POP - especially solo - but it turns out I really enjoyed the resort and usually stay there when on-site.

F&W was a lot of fun, Got a lot of stamos in my passport! And lots of good beers available. Flights were a good deal, and they would customize them for you. Stop by the Craft Beer kiosk, right next to Hawaii. Really liked the Purple Haze. And yet I still saw people drinking Bud Light. Sort of like taking the Pinto out for a drive when there is a 911 sitting in the garage.....

Cant swing another trip on short notice, so hope everyone has a great meet!
A bunch of friends were running the race, but I stayed behind in Jellyrolls. Actually celebrating my BFF birthday there because that is what she chose.

I also got most of the stamps in my passport but didn't finish. I don't like beer or wine that much, so it automatically canceled out finishing all the stamps. Though, I guess I could have snuck up on them and asked for a stamp.

I think that I am gonna just leave a day early. I was thinking of staying a day later, but I think leaving today would be best. Now, HOPEFULLY I can get my AP discount even though it's expired at POP>..

My flight leaves early tomorrow morning. I've heard from my parents who already have their RV at Ft Wilderness. We've got a site in the 100 loop which is right up near Pioneer Hall
I may or may not have internet access depending on how well the laptop cooperates. But if all goes well hopefully I'll be seeing some fellow DISers on Friday and Saturday ...
