Nice to meet you, Stringbean's parents!

The food looks so good! Hahah aww, your little Hoot is precious!

Um, why have I never witnessed chefs rapping? I think I need to re-examine my life...

Hanging out at the gate to eat pastries is totally fine!

Ah, the ME video gets me every time. It just revs me up for the trip even more at that point.

No hand soap? That's weird.

Wait, you mean you don't want to have a giant parade float head in your living room? How weird of you.

Wow, you really did blend in with that watermelon patch.

Hoot is adorable! And you are a wise person you know.

Hahahaha. Girl, Food Rocks used to be in the Land. LOL. Cranium Command, Cranium Command (which I LOVED btw).

They were selling Cutco knives? My Mom has a set. I covet them.

Thanks for sharing the South African food. We didn't get any food there on our trip this time, but it looks yummy!
I like Hoot! He's cute!

So nice to "meet" your parents too!!

I thought those chocolate creations were super cool! Loved them all.

Oh yeah - and the guys drumming with their kitchen appliances - they were excellent.

Yeah for a picture of your parents. They are so cute!

And food and wine porn. Everything looks delish. I could spend a small fortune at those booths. Oh wait - I did.

I told DF that there was supposedly a Festival Center, and so we decided to make the trek over to the old Wonders of Live Pavilion to check it out.
We didn't make it over there. The girls would have enjoyed seeing the displays.

Hey this is a shot in the dark, but I'm sensing that you guys seriously love EPCOT.

Hoot is adorable!

Those chocolate sculptures are phenomenal! I have aunts who can decorate cakes like that. It's amazing what people can do with food.

Hello Stringbean's parents!

Sounds like a successful F&W mission! The chocolate sculptures in the festival center are pretty cool!

Glad Wingnut got his shirt-and a present for you. Smart man.

Oh, your F&W pictures are making me drool all over my keyboard! We are going in OCT 2013 and it will be our first F&W festival! Even better? My folks are joining us for part of the trip and have promised to keep the kids one night so DH and I can have a F&W festival date night! Although we always get the DP, I am already saving my $$$ for lots of F&W deliciousness!

Note to Self: Do not look at food pics from Epcot's Food & Wine Festival when it's lunchtime and all you have is tuna and an apple.

Just kidding, of course I loved seeing all your food pics. Makes me even more determined to make it for F&W soon! Looks like you had a great start to your trip. Nice pic of your parents too!

Wow the food from that South African booth looks yummy.

Hoot is just adorable!

Spatula bling? That is just so perfectly awesome. I love it.

I can't wait for the day when I can try F&W - one day.

Not the best taste mind you, but not too bad.

Love your little owl !! He's cute. I would love to see your DF's poster !!
Exactly!!!

Ooooooh you troublemakers!!!

I think I tried the Beverly awhile back, it just tastes chemical-y to me!

It's a t-shirt actually...I thought I had a picture of it here, but I can't seem to find it now. Will post one when I can find the shirt!

LOL I didn't even realize it until I looked at the picture later!

I really was thinking of Cranium Command...no idea why Food Rocks jumped in there!!! Whoops!!
