Disney Food Blog Challenge: Epcot Food and Wine Festival Bingo!

It’s finally here!

Today marks the official kickoff of the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

So far, we are having a fantastic time sampling all that’s new and savoring returning favorites. Be sure to read all about it and see ALL THE FOOD PHOTOS! on our updated booth pages!

But we couldn’t let such a momentous occasion go by without some kind of celebration. And I have the perfect way for you to gear up and get excited about YOUR very first trip to this year’s Food and Wine Festival: Disney Food Blog Bingo!

Disney Food Blog Bingo: Epcot Food and Wine Festival Edition

We first introduced you to Disney Food Blog Bingo a while back, as we attempted to finish both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot bingo cards. But today, we have a couple of brand new cards to celebrate the Food and Wine Festival!

This is a great way to explore all of the Marketplace Booths. You’ll likely try some new things that you’ve never had before!

So will it be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal as you work toward victory? Print both cards below and challenge your friend to see who can get BINGO first!

A mixture of classic and new tastes will bag you the win with this version of our bingo card.

I’ll take any excuse for stopping by the France Booth to sample Escargot

The Disney Food Blog Bingo Challenge!

Guest Author Katie Roth took on the Disney Food Blog Bingo Challenge. Are you game? Let’s play!

A few weeks before my recent trip to Disney World, the Disney Parks Blog posted an article on a fun new way to experience the Disney parks: Bingo!

When I read this article, I immediately wanted there to be a Disney food version which prompted me to contact AJ at the Disney Food Blog.

She developed a card for each park and I was lucky enough to be the beta tester! :) For this trip, we attempted the Magic Kingdom and Epcot food bingo cards.

Magic Kingdom Disney Food Bingo Card

The first card that we attempted to complete was for the Magic Kingdom. I absolutely LURVE Magic Kingdom food, so I knew this card would be a cinch to complete.

Our first treat was a Root Beer Dole Whip Float at Aloha Isle. It was in the high 80s with a packed park, so this cold and refreshing treat was welcomed.

While I love anything Dole Whip, and even though we got vanilla Dole Whip, I thought that the root beer actually didn’t taste the best with it …perhaps because it wasn’t the creamy, real vanilla ice cream that I’m used to? Maybe it was an off-day? Either way, I’ll probably need to get another one just to be sure. ;)

Float!

As optimistic as I was that we would finish the Magic Kingdom bingo card, I am saddened and embarrassed to admit that we did not. :(

We got as far as the float and a popcorn and then threw our hands up in defeat – the Memorial Day crowds and our Advance Dining Reservation (ADR) just proved too much for us on top of attempting two bingo cards. We were, however, much more successful with the Epcot card.
