I have left several shows. I always go to one show by any band there when I am there.... And sometimes some of them just do nothing for me. (I always just wander in and sit near the back so it's not like I am climbing over thousands of people )

A friend of mine visited Epcot today and reported that most of the booths were open and serving all the delicious food for the F&W. Here are some of his reviews.

He enjoyed the Tipsy Duck from China. In fact, he said it was one of his favorite drinks!

The Seared scallop and tomato ragu with the kaiser xingu black lager was really good.

Ice cream martinis from France!

Pork sliders paired with the Kona Porter was one his favorites.

Grey Goose Slush...one of my personal favorites!

Lettuce wrap with kimchee slaw form South Korea was reported as tasty.

Habanero Mango Margarita was hit too!

Lemongrrass chicken curry on jasmine rice fromm Singapore was good.

Beef Empanada from Argentina was also enjoyed.

He sent me pics, but I can't figure out how to post them!

I'm heading to the World this afternoon. I'll be MNSSHP tonight and Food and Wine Sat/Sun. I will be doing a TR with lots of FW reviews and pics and will scan the map and passport for those who want to see them. If anyone has pic requests let me know and I will try to get pics of the food and drinks.

I had Fin de Monde on tap earlier this year here in VA. Let's hope they have it at the kiosk too!

I'd like to see some pics of this year's merchandise, especially the t-shirts.

Thanks!

Opening Day Lunch

Swung by EPCOT for lunch. Went on Day 1 last year as well. I remember there being more Food & Wine signage at the entrance to World Showcase in years past.

Started in Canada with the Cheddar Cheese Soup and Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle Butter Sauce. Could have just stayed there for an hour devouring 5 portions! Is there anything better than the flavor explosion of Canada's cheddar cheese soup?! Oh wait.. there is: The Filet Mingon! Melts like butter in your mouth. Decent portion with about three or four bites, along with the creamy mushroom and truffle sauce. Canada has got to be the best F&W stop year after year.

By the way- As expected, Canada had the longest line I saw. Actually, it's two lines on either side.

I serously considered staying right there and getting seconds, but I moved on.

Next stop: France. Very short line. Got the Boef Bourguignon and Creme Brulee au Chocolat au Lait. Amazing. The beef was awesome. About 4 pieces. Very flavorful with perfect sauce. The mashed/whipped potato on which the beef was placed was a tad rubbery, but still very good. The Cream Brulee was delicious!

I figured I was done eating and kept walking around the world. Not too crowded at 11:45am. For some reason I stopped at Poland. No line. Couldn't help but try the Kielbasa and Potato Pierogi. Very, very nice combination. Love Pierogi!

Now I was done, right? Feeling full, I started my way out. But again, a short line caught my eye. It's so nice to walk right up to the register! I couldn't help but think about how long the lines were going to be in an hour or so.. and then the massive lines this weekend! Wouldn't get an opportunity like this again.. so I ordered the Mongolian Beef in a Steamed Bun at the China kiosk.

Wish I hadn't. Not very good. I should have stopped while I was ahead!

Stomach exploding, I made my way out.

A couple of notes:

Castmembers at all the kiosks I visited were EXTREMELY friendly with big smiles!

There were two people in line for the concert! I actually really like Starship/Jefferson Starship/Jefferson Airplane, but I'm not sure I'd wait in line for 5 hours!

Thankfully it was cloudy with a little breeze. Perfect weather.

I noticed something I hadn't noticed before. The top of Spaceship Earth is dirty! Has anyone else noticed that? Looks like dark splotches at the top. You can only see it from far away. Took a picture but can't figure out how to download it. Spaceship Earth needs a cleaning. That would be fun to watch!

Oh, thank you for the great reviews! I am going for the first time the end of next month, and I just don't have a clue!
