We had the pleasure of going to the 2014 Food & Wine Festival on its very last day, November 10, 2014. The weather was perfect and the crowds much better than when we went last year. You could actually walk around the World Showcase and enjoy yourself.

Walking around the world. Perfect weather, not too hot or too cold! Balmy!

We loaded our mini gift cards with $30 and started snacking our way around the world.

Interestingly, until the Food & Wine Festival is over, Epcot is in full autumn decor, no Christmas Holiday decor allowed.  So, while the other parks are putting up garlands left and right, nothing holiday at Epcot until Nov. 11th!
