It’s not much of a secret that today is preview day for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. Cast Members get a run at working the kiosks, but sometimes they might not be serving all the dishes, or they open at later times than they would during the official start. Until I am able to get a full reviews up, the best way to see what’s going on is by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram, as those will be the most timely outlets to which I’ll be able to share information! We can’t wait!
The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival officially begins Friday, and David Kennedy of disneypodcast.net has made some updates to the app he created for the Festival last year. The Food and Wine Tracker app for iOS (iPhone) is available for FREE.
Dave created the app per a friend’s suggestion to make the event a bit more social. Whether you’re at the festival or just seeing what’s happening, you can see which dishes are trending and what’s getting good reviews. Did you try a dish? You can give it a thumbs up or down, write a review, or rate it on a 5-star scale. There’s also an option to Tweet about it, and it uses #EpcotFoodAndWine as the hashtag so you can see what others are tweeting about during the Festival. New this year is the ability to create a wishlist of items you’d like to try. For those without iOS, there is a basic web version here you can access in your phone, tablet, or computer’s browser.
Fans of the Eat to the Beat Concert Series will be glad to know they can book dealing via FastPass+ during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, according to the Disney Parks Blog. As of today, you can log on to My Disney Experience to reserve a spot up to 60 days in advance.
Our “Snacks from…” series treats you to different snacks found in the World Showcase pavilions at Epcot. Find more reviews here! Continuing our series, we head to Mitsukoshi in the Japan Pavilion!
It’s been over a year since we paid a visit to World Showcase for our “Snacks from” series. On a recent trip to Mitsukoshi, I spotted a few items I hadn’t seen before, so I picked them up. Today’s Snack from Japan is Calbee’s Jagabee: Butter Soy Sauce Flavor. These “thick, whole cut potato crisps” feature Kikkoman Soy Sauce. While I’ve had several snacks from Calbee, the Jagabee line is one that I’ve not yet tried. A quick Google search shows several online retailers for this product, with several options available on Amazon.
