So do they not release the F&W maps online? Do we need to wait til it starts to see a map? We will visit F&W on 2 days & I would like to figure out which kiosk is where so I have some kind of plan. We will have our kids w/us & want to keep them interested too.

F & W touring plan suggestions

We only have one day in Epcot and want to enjoy as much of the festival as possible.

Any suggestions on which direction to tour booths? Is there an advantage to starting in Mexico versus Canada?

How do all of you fit in your WS regular offerings with the marketplace offerings? I need to have my favorites as well as many of the special items - not sure if I can manage all in one day!

Info indicates that the Festival Center opens at 9:00am. Should we try to visit there as well as take in the FW attractions before the WS opens at 11:00?

One must do occurs at 12:00, the tequila bar in Mexico opens - avocado margarita! I am thinking that getting this to go is the best option and then head out to enjoy the offerings.

How do you plan your EP/F&WF day?

Stop by the Festival Center and grab a free passport that has all the dishes listed and you can get it stamped (fun free souvenir!). I go with friends and we get one of what looks good and then we split it (by 3 or 4 this year!) so we can have a little taste and not get totally full! I've never noticed a difference on what direction you go....just head over at 11 because I've found it to be more crowded the later you go.

There's a picture of the map on the disney food blog: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2012-e...ths-and-menus/
there's also pictures for food that is being brought back from last year & food items that were at the previews.

Didn't Disney release their "official" map online a lot earlier last year? I've been searching all afternoon, and this one is the only one I can find, and it's less than perfect- still blurry and everything...

I've looked at all the official Disney pages (website, facebook, the Disney blog) and can't find it....

You usually don't find out until people start posting pictures of menus that are posted at the Kiosk. So usually the day before the festival starts, more might trickle in early, depends on when they physically put them up at the kiosks.

The only place I've seen the map is via the QR code for mobile scanning/viewing.

2012 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival QR Code. It is not an app just a link to a web page.
