Epcot Food and Wine Festival: Share Your Favorite World Showcase Booths

For many of us, the main draw at the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival are the World Showcase marketplace booths!

One of the questions I get most often about the Festival is “What booths are your favorite?” As you know, I think it’s pretty important to plan what booths you want to visit the most (there’s only so much money, time, and stomach space, after all), so I thought it would be fun to share my favorites!
