The DFB Mini-Guide to the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is the second in a series of mini-guides, published by AJ Wolfe of the wonderful Disney Food Blog website. The mini-guides follow on from the first e-book, the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining, which we reviewed a few months back.
Published in pdf format, it’s there on your computer within minutes of ordering, ready to read or download to a smartphone or iPad. This format means it’s perfect for reading on the go, and taking with you to the parks, for instant reference whilst at the Food & Wine Festival.
Whether you’ve visited the Food and Wine Festival before or not, you’ll find useful information in this mini guide, which covers everything from how to get to Epcot, to touring plans for visiting the Festival.
Starting off with a brief introduction to the different parts of the Festival (marketplace booths, special events, etc), it then goes on to look at each part in more detail.
If you’ve already booked into one of the special events and want to know what happens when you arrive and where to pick tickets up, this guide will tell you. Not booked anything? The guide will also tell you how to book. Not sure what events are on offer? Look no further than the events guide within this e-book, which lists every signature and special event, demo, and seminar at the Festival, both free and paid-for.
International Marketplace booths are covered in detail, with a photo of each booth, a listing of menu items, and even photos of certain menu items. AJ also gives a mention to the best and most popular things to try at some of the booths.
The Eat to the Beat Concert section has a playlist for each artist who’s featured at this year’s Festival, which is very handy if you’re undecided on who to see.
If you’re a Festival novice it can be a bit overwhelming knowing where to begin. Towards the end of the guide are pages of touring strategies to help you get the most from your time there, whether you’re visiting for one day or two days, with kids or on a budget.
Fancy doing a themed crawl around the booths? Ideas for a beer crawl, seafood crawl, continent crawl, dessert crawl, and Food & Wine classics crawl are all included.
The guide is simply bursting with information and tips to help you get the most from the Food & Wine Festival, and you could do worse than order yourself a copy if you’re planning to visit!
