    I’m coming! So excited! First time ever to do Disneyland’s Food & Wine (AND first year ever that I’ll be doing both their and Disney World’s Food & Wine Fest at EPCOT in the same year!) But considering that the weeks they are having this is the MOST crowded times at Disneyland, I booked my trip for technically the week this starts, so that it’s slightly less crowded, so I hope they are ready to go right on March 10th! (As that will technically be the only day of my trip where the festival will be happening.) I was really hoping that they would keep the same dates as last year as I had planned on going the last week in April as that’s the least crowded time to go, but oh well…

    Yes, I plan on attending again this year. I went every weekend last year, so glad it is going to be daily this year. Looking forward to taking some workshops attending demo’s and visiting the vendors. I loved the wonderful selection of food booths. I know it isn’t as big at WDW, but I enjoyed it and the speakers.

    I cannot WAIT to go! my husband and I go to the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot whenever we can…going in September! this way my grown up children can get a small taste (ha ha) of what we get to do!

    We are interested in the festival but will be comparing it to WDW EPCOT Food and Wine Festival?
    We have been to that event 10-12 times and California 0 and we live in California! If your going to do it do it right!

    Disappointed so far with food at art festival. Pricey, kiosk are hard to find, and food looks nothing like it does during Flower Festival or Food and Wine.

  6. Jodi says

    I am excited about this too! We will be attending a conference so it will be great that it will be during the week too!
