The DFB Mini-Guide to the 2011 Epcot Food & Wine Festival e-Book Reviews

More great reviews for our newest DFB Mini-Guide! We hope this book is helping lots of folks who are visiting the festival this weekend! Pick up your copy of the DFB Mini-Guide to the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival e-Book today!

Samland Disney recently reviewed the guide; here’s an excerpt:
Bottom line. If you are going to the Food and Wine Festival in 2011 then you should have already purchased this e-book. If not, but are a big fan of the event, you may want to consider buying it as it is one of the most comprehensive summaries of the festival with lots of photos.

Read the full review here! You can also see Sam’s review on MiceChat.com!

Here’s what Walt Disney World for Grown-Ups has to say:
I missed a lot of the festival last year trying to tackle it without a plan. Not this year though; I’ve downloaded the Disney Food Blog Mini-Guide to the 2011 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival to my iPhone and all the information I need will be right at my fingertips throughout vacation.
