The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival at Walt Disney World starts on September 27 and runs through November 11, with lots of delicious food and adult beverages throughout its almost two-month run. I recommend getting to the park early when you visit the festival for a variety of reasons.
The festival is extremely popular, both with local foodies and vacationers who plan their trips around the event. You get to feast around the world simply by visiting all the kiosks in World Showcase. You can also catch Eat to the Beat Concerts, which are included with your admission, and extra cost seminars and dinners.
The list accompanying this article spells out my top five reasons for being at Epcot right at opening time, even though World Showcase doesn't open until 11 a.m. You'll be glad you arrived early when you see how much it enhances your visit to this popular annual event. I also recommend staying until closing time because you can never see Illuminations (the nightly fireworks and lagoon show) too many times.
