You've probably seen the commercials featuring the Ocean Spray growers in the cranberry bog on TV, and you can meet them in person at Walt Disney World every year at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. A bog springs up just past the fountain, toward the path to World Showcase, manned by growers who are happy to answer all your questions.
On the opening day of the festival I had the opportunity to join the crowds inside the bog to see what the harvest feels like. You can see scenes from the event and my adventures in the bog by clicking the list accompanying this article.

The Ocean Spray cranberry bog is an annual favorite with guests, and it's just one small part of the many festival activities. You can explore the world of Ghirardelli chocolate, learn how to cook from the pros, shop for cute kitchenware, catch a concert, and of course eat and drink your way around World Showcase throughout the festival, which runs until November 11.
