Hooray! For those of you busy making plans at home, we’ve got more information for the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival for you today!
The Festival Center is something of a home base during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

I found the tail to be a good size, perfect for a small appetizer. And the Garlic Herb Butter enhanced the lobster’s flavor.
