Eve, you will be fine in nice park clothes at the Italian lunch. We usually do something a little nicer than shorts and tank tops!

PFTS you will see everything. You do want to be comfortable. DH has worn dockers and a button front shirt, I usually wear my chicos travel pants with a sparkly top. Black, of course.

I have been to WDW around when the F&W Festival was going on, but never really participated before.

What are the portion sizes like for the dishes at the kiosks? And what have the prices been like for those over the last couple years? Would $30 per person per day on the gift card be an accurate estimate, or should I plan on adding more than that?

Forgot to mention, I don't plan on drinking alcohol. If anything, I may have one drink. But I have to drive, so no Drink Around the World for me.

$30 pp without alcohol might just do it!

There's some updated info on Disney Parks Blog regarding this year's festival:

Quote:
The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will return to Walt Disney World Resort Friday, Sept. 28, and preparation is already flowing at a fast pace behind the scenes.

Here’s a look at just how two of our chefs are adding character to this year’s event.

Only 16 more days until the festival begins!

crazy4wdw, thanks for the link to the good laugh! But that guy cutting the apples is no chef!

My trip is soooo far away, not getting there until Halloween. Looking forward to hearing the reports.
