In Which Jenn Makes A Fake Food & Wine Festival To-Eat List

Food & Wine Festival

Is it with a heavy heart that I must remind you all that I will not be attending this year’s Food & Wine Festival in Epcot. There will be no Wine & Dine Half Marathon for me. Yes, it was a great three years, pouring rain and curtailed courses and all. But I chose to run the Dark Side Half last April instead, to expand my horizons and whatnot, and I stand by that decision.


How can I not when the first menus for this year’s festival were just released? There is SO MUCH GOOD STUFF this year. Of course. Naturally. I bet they did that on purpose.

I wasn’t going to hurt myself further by looking. But I had to look. And then I was like, well, I won’t be at the festival, but I can make a pretend wishlist, right? For fun and excitement?

So I did. Here it is:

+ means I ate it last year and liked it enough to add it to the list again (NOT THAT IT MATTERS).
– means it was on the list last year but I never got around to trying it.
