I've loved reading along. You're right, the DIS is such a great place for us to have a community to get to know each other through our mutual love of Disney. I can't wait to hear about October.

P.S. You have inspired me to finally purchase one of the Beaker hats....

Okay, here are my thoughts on the F&W offerings:

Belgian Waffle is great. Very light and fluffy, you'll love it.

Warm Chocolate Lava cake was my absolute favorite thing there, also along with the Fisherman's pie from Ireland. That stuff was epic.

The Ropa Vieja was one of my other favorites. It was done just right and was so tender.

The Grilled Beef skewer was also really good. I loved the Chimichurri Sauce that they make it with.

Swedish Meatballs with lingonberries = Yuuummmmm

Ravioli from Italy was very good

The Seared Filet of Beef from South Africa was underwhelming for me, but that may also be because I had consumed too much alcohol....

I think that the vegan booth is intriguing to me. I would definitely give it a try myself, but I was also a vegetarian for quite a number of years.

Well...I'm not overly excited because there aren't a ton of things for me (vegetarian) other than LOTS and LOTS of desserts, but I'm excited about the vegan booth they are opening! I went through the map and list of what foods were available and marked booths that had something for me. There was PLENTY and I'm sure I can fill up with WINE if needed! Rey is a meat eater, so he'll love most of the items. It's our first time going ALONE and even though we only have 2 park days this November trip, they are mostly going to be at Epcot for F&W, so I feel like we'll have enough time to try lots!

If you have time between all that planning, take some pics of your favorites and report, I would love to see some of the offerings before our trip!

Clearly, I need help here. What are you guys excited for/have enjoyed in the past/think looks awesome?
We have had and enjoyed all the highlighted samples. Fisherman's Pie was a 'chance' I took, and I liked it.

The filet mignon in Canada is my #1 quest for this trip, and I think I want to try the ravioli in Italy and the pork and sweet corn salad at the Florida booth.

These seriously all sound so good. Cynthia and I have so much eating planned for this trip that I am certain to be in a food coma by the time it is all over. I need a second stomach and a set of "fat clothes" for the end of my trip.

I hope you do get your ME stuff promptly, unlike last time!

Aww, I loved this TR! I actually can't believe it's over, even though it's been going on for so long. I am SO excited to hear about your next trip, and the planning leading up to it!

Hahaha, no changes? Color me shocked!

Finally caught up - I can't believe that it's over! I love all the retro Epcot stuff that you got and I'm so jealous that you get to be there when all the 30th stuff is out!

Glad to hear that your wedding plan is going well! Can't wait to hear about your planning session. Are you doing a food tasting as well?

yay for trip and wedding planning progress!

Out of your F&W list, the pork skewer with chimichurri sauce has been a favorite of mine since about 2006!

I also love the baileys cake!

My hands down favorite is the pork lettuce wrap with kimichi slaw (or however it is spelled). It is really, really yummy and worth a shot!

I've never done food and wine, so I have nothing to contribute. I do look forward to hearing about what you eat though!

We feel the same way that there are only a few things we are interested in. The drinks from the countries interest me more.

Loved your report! This is one of the first I've read; they are so addicting! I may give report writing a shot after our own WDW trip in three weeks
Looking forward to reading your next one!

A Few things off the top of my head I know I am looking forward to is the Mushroom Filet from Canada (more beef! lol), the Cheese fondue (can't remember where from!?!), the lamb chop, the griddled cheese.
That's a good plan, to not plan!!!

Those do sound good!

Hahaha yay!!! Glad I was able to be a hat inspiration!

There do seem to be a lot more vegetarian options than I had noticed in the past! And yes, there is always the wine half of food and wine!

I can see DF liking the Fisherman's Pie, I'm not as big a fan of fish as he is!

Those sound really good too!!

I swear, I don't know how I'm going to eat this much this time around! We always eat a ton, but this could be new epic levels here...

I hope so too!! (Nothing yet...)
