Preserving Epcot: Kitchen Kabaret Vinylmation

News! The Latest Foodie Vinylmations!

More new food-related vinylmations have been released (or announced), and we can’t wait to share them with you!

Kitchen Kabaret Vinylmation Set

Drum roll please… The Kitchen Kabaret Vinylmation set that we reported on back in September has now been released.

Broccoli Vinylmation is one of Six in the Kitchen Kabaret Vinylmation Set

The 6-piece set is being sold at the Walt Disney World and Disneyland D-Street locations as well as few select in-park shops, retailing for $99.95. I’m not at the parks this week, so I’ll have to wait until the mailman brings me my set to show you up-close-and-personal photos of these vinyl veggies.

But to keep your hunger at bay, I do have a few foodie Vinylmation pictures for you to snack on.

Epcot Food and Wine Festival Center and More Merchandise

It’s a rainy day here at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, so what better thing to do than shopping? We stopped at the Festival Center to see what we could find! Please excuse the smartphone pics — the rain was coming down pretty hard and I didn’t want to risk the DSLR!

The Intermissions Cafe is the perfect place to grab a bite between seminars!
