I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Went last year and going again this year.

I only booked one TS dinner and one TS breakfast. Both were on days when we would not be doing F&W.

I cannot do a big meal and snack all afternoon.

Am planning the same this year. I'll probably do one or two TS on non F&W days (first and last day), then just plan on grabbing a CS or using the booths as a meal on the other days.

We'll grab a quick in room breakfast (bagel or kbar) hit a park, transfer to Epcot at midday to snack our way around, and do the countries or ride a few rides, then either hit another park and for dinner we'll either go back to F&W or just grab a snack or share a meal at the resort or park we are at. We often split the F&W sample that way we could try more things without stuffing ourselves.

Worked great last year and never felt too full or hungry. There is just no way I could eat a breakfast, snack at F&W and eat a TS or CS dinner.

These are all wonderful ideas. I think I'm' going to graze the one day and the next we are having a late dinner @ Il Mulino so we'll just eat some lunch at the festival. Thanks everyone I can't wait to go!

In the past, we'd sample at lunch but would made ADR's for dinner, then have drinks around the world at night. DH & I are going this October for an "adults only" 4-day trip and plan to make only one dinner reservation. The rest of the time we'll be taking advantage of the BC Club offerings as well as sampling around the world at F&W.

We've done the Food & Wine Festival six of the last seven years, and we'll be back again this year. On days that we're going to visit the Festival, we sleep late, skip breakfast and start at the Festival Marketplace booths right as the World Showcase opens. We'll stop snacking after a couple hours and schedule late table-service dinners, like at 8:30 PM or so. Doing that, it takes us about five afternoons to try everything we want to (and repeat our very favorites). We always try every booth, though not every item at every booth.
