Labor Day weekend is right around the corner, and that means fall is on the way. Even though Florida hasn’t quite got the memo yet to usher in fall temperatures, Epcot is set to kick of the 2018 Food and Wine Festival. Now in its 23rd year, this event has become a highlight for many people, and some people make a special trip just for it. Don’t believe me? Try to get a last-minute room at any Crescent Lake resort. No, seriously, try it, and if you succeed, can I crash on your sofabed?
This week, we’d like to know if Food and Wine is a must-do for you, so we’re asking
Are you going to attend Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival in 2018?
- Yes, as part of a vacation (53%, 124 Votes)
- No (38%, 90 Votes)
- Yes, a trip just for it (9%, 22 Votes)
Total Voters: 236
We’ll tally up your resorts, but have no fear–we won’t tally up your food booth receipts!
Speaking of festivals, last week we asked whether Epcot should go to year-round festivals. Results were a bit closer on the blog than on Twitter, but the outcome was the same. A majority of you said “no”, and that you like having some down time at Epcot. In fact, some of you think there’s already too much festival time in the calendar. (My favorite comment, “When everyone’s super, no one is”.) Others felt that having the festivals adds something, whether it’s a unique “extra” to your Epcot day or things that keep the attention of kids. Festival of the Arts, for many, has become a favorite festival, but others like that festivals throughout the year provide a great way to mix up dining options if you’re not looking for places to eat in Epcot.
We’ll be back next week with another round of #AskIt, but in the meantime, if you are getting hyped for Food and Wine Festival, check out our preview here.
What’s your favorite festival season, or do you prefer Epcot as a festival-free zone. What are you most excited about for Food and Wine? Let us know in the comments.
