Many of you know that one of my personal tips when visiting the Epcot Food and Wine Festival as an uber-fan is to bring along a tray to carry your goodies!
Yep — that’s right: a TRAY! Juggling a credit/gift card, a drink, a plate of food or two, your receipt, PLUS any extras like a day pack, purse, wallet, kid, etc. can get really annoying as you travel from booth to booth at the World Showcase.
So for the past few years I’ve visited with a tray, which makes it easy to hold my drink(s), plate(s) of food, credit card and receipt, and any other random things while I’m searching out a good place to eat. (Remember, tables can be few and far between at the festival, so it may take some searching to find one unoccupied.)
Make Your Own Official DFB Food and Wine Festival Tray
I’ve had many readers request that I start selling DFB branded trays for this purpose so that they could not only have a tray for the festival, but also promote their DFB reader status (which we greatly appreciate!). So I thought I’d make it one step MORE economical, and introduce…the OFFICIAL DFB TRAY BUMPER STICKER!
This way, you can use any tray you currently have — or head out and get a nice cheap one to use that suits your purposes and fits in your backpack/daypack!
Just slap on a DFB sticker and everyone will know you’ve got an official DFB Food and Wine Festival Tray! Here are a few examples…

What Makes the Perfect Food and Wine Festival Tray?
What do I look for in a tray? Basically, it has to be lightweight (usually made of plastic), have a “lip” around the edge so drinks and plates don’t go sliding, be big enough to hold at least two or three plates and a glass/bottle, but be small enough to fit into my backpack for easy storage when I go on rides!
I’m tellin’ ya — once you visit the festival with a tray, you’ll never go back.
