Unfortunately I am still behind on this Live Blog. I am now writing this as we prepare to go home. I will complete this live-ish blog once home but will write a final instalment tonight from Orlando. However; what a final day to write about! Where else can you eat and drink around the world and finish the day watching Billy Ocean and fireworks?
Yes, Epcot Food and Wine Festival takes some beating and it seems to be getting more popular each time we visit. After a lie in following our Halloween party the night before we arrive late morning. We went a bit of an odd way round starting in Canada and then returning to Mexico. We had a Fastpass for Frozen and it really is a vast improvement on Maelstrom. However; is it really worth a 2 hour wait in the standby line?
We made good use of our snack credits experiencing 3 snacks each. The star of the show for me was the Lamb Chop & Pesto in the Australia stand. We also tasted several wines and beers. Perhaps surprisingly the Chinese beer was delightful.
We never managed to complete World Showcase and returned later in our trip(a report will eventually be written). Dinner was at Teppan Edo in the Japanese Pavillion. We felt the food was much better than previously and portions were massive. The show by our chef though was much more limited….No Juggling!
Our next stop was Eat to the Beat and Mr. Billy Ocean. We have seen Billy before at EPCOT and he did not disappoint again. I did notice a lot of people leaving half way….why do people do this?
Finally our night was finished with Illuminations. Despite arriving late we got an excellent viewing spot. A brilliant end to another packed day.
I will be picking this blog up again once home. Please keep checking back. The will also be plenty more to add including video, facts, advice & a daily Vlog.
