Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, Remy and a Freebie!

It's already here!!  The 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival began September 27 and runs through November 10, 2013.  I have to admit that the food at DisneyWorld is really amazing.  And then the Wine and Food Festival starts and the game is stepped up! So many different booths with culinary delights from around the world are featured throughout the World Showcase. 

For those of you headed that way... I do hope you made your reservations early!  So many of the events and seminars are sold out as of Sept 4, 2013.   You can view the list of sold out events here: For those who have not yet been to this amazing festival, you might just be interested in reading over this material and setting it as a special goal for a vacation.

You can view the list of low cost seminars and demonstrations here:

You can view the list of Epcot Food and Wine Festival Special Events here:  My favorite would definitely be the "3D" Disney's Dessert Discovery. Special desserts, cordials, special viewing of IllumiNations. Our family is a regular at the Dessert Party in Tomorrowland Terrace at Magic Kingdom. Desserts are awesome.. and the firework seating is to die for!   Second favorite.. the cheese seminars. 

You can view the list of World Showcase Booths (including menus and photos) here: Be sure to click on the links to view the booths, menus and drool over some food samples.

It's not just food and drink!  There is a full schedule of "Eat to the Beat Concerts" during the festival! The list is always subject to change.   You can view the concert schedule here:   There are three shows nightly to catch your favorites. Shows start at 5:30 PM, 6:45 PM and 8:00 PM.  This year's line up includes such greats as Air Supply, Sister Hazel, Sugar Ray, The Manhattan Transfer, Pointer Sisters, Smash Mouth, Christopher Cross, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy to name a few.

And scrappers.. be sure to pick up your Festival Marketplace Discovery Passport from the Festival Welcome Center. As you travel the World, be sure to collect the unique passport stamps from the Marketplaces that you visit. 

I am going to go ahead and add The Disney Food Blog to the Disney Hint's  page.  You can find recipes there. Awesome recipes!  You will find tons of information about the restaurants, the menus, the dining plans. They do have some ebooks that they sell there. I really don't recommend paying for that information when you can actually rustle it all up on the internet for free. Save those dollars for Disney instead!! If there is something you want to know, drop me an email, leave a comment. If we (Chrissy and I) don't already have that information hanging around our computers, we can find it for you.  

Oh! Before I forget, the correct answer to last week's Hidden Layout game..... 13.  You expected something other than that this Halloween season??   Let me show you that Haunting Halloween

Mini Kit.  If you hurry on over to MouseScrappers, you can still get this kit free by accepting my Weekly Challenge #204!!  The challenge runs through October 8, 2013. 

I really want to share with you my layout for the  In Vino Veritas kit Connie recently released at the GingerScraps Buffet. 

Remy, the Little Chef, can be found at the Chefs de France Restaurant located in France on the World Showcase.  He comes to your table on this little tray with cheese and grapes. He moves. He talks. He is adorable!!  But he can't do autographs. 

This week, I wanted to give you all a little something I made using In Vino Veritas.  I hope you can all use this for a special layout of your trip to a very special place. If not now.. in the future!  Click on the image to start your download. You may also click here for the download to start.  (Link corrected 10-6-13 at 10:12 AM)

Until next week then!!
