There’s a live band and they are playing confection-inspired ditties such as "Peppermint Twist"
We have our bracelets and we ave our 3D glasses. We are ready to rock some serious caloric intake. My brother is da bomb.
It’s getting spooky, what with the dramatic skies and high winds. We are off to a Food and Wine Festival treat….
Twilight creates the most magical silhouettes
The American Adventure (Advenchah?) holds wonders! Oh and that’s a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat beeah.
I needed to slow down the wine sampling a little so I took a turn through the Japan merchandise area. Still very windy, but delightfully so. I may go in search of a Mickey-on-a-stick !
The fish and rice are citrusy and flavorful. I am told by the Cast Member serving that the wine is French, and that there is a large French colony in Singapore. It’s a bit on the sweet side for me. I am holed up an an alcove under the terrace in Japan – the wind from Hurricane Sandy’s outer bands has really picked up and there’s some shelter to be had back here.
I liked the scallops so much, I came back for them three weeks later. The family is at Chefs De France, but I prefer to graze. What shall I have next?
I think his would make a terrific framed poster, don’t you?
It is odd to think of jack-o-lanterns being related to watermelons – but after all, they are both carved into beautiful works of food sculpture, so why not?
Wine and chocolate – that’s what I’m talking about!
Breckenridge vodka – nice amount of fire going down, clean after-taste.
Love all the refurb signs with pearls from Walt. This is near Electric Umbrella.
Imagine if you could always see the sky from inside the house! It would be like living in the Great Hall at Hogwarts. Oops, wrong park!
The filet looks REALLY good and it has been a long time since I’ve had read meat….
We love this little cottage in O Canada – I want them to rent it to me for just one night!
A special edition of ILLUMINATIONS: REFLECTIONS OF EARTH was presented at EPCOT in Walt Disney World on the evening of that theme park’s 30the anniversary on October 1st 2012. Here is some really, REALLY primitive video of the event. The show ran 18 minutes long with the extra tribute fireworks, which reverberated in the ears and chest, and scared the heck out of the local flock of ducks (at about 17 minutes, 41 seconds, you’ll see a few of them leaving). We had the EXCELLENT harvest moon alongside the show too, dancing in and out of clouds that flashed frequently with heat lightning. It was nice of Disney to arrange that for us 😉 Hope you all enjoy.

I had the "chicken" yesterday – it was actually not bad!
As I exited the stave church in EPCOT’s Norway, this rune stone began to sputter and glow!
Laugh and the world laughs with you! Go to the My Mobile Adventures Facebook page for a brief video from American Adventure in EPCOT.
The Food and Wine Festival at EPCOT has installed a Florida Local kiosk right beside American Adventure. Management is giving them an award at moment and videoing it. The guys at the Florida Local kiosk are really nice and friendly. Drop by if you are in the area!
We just had ravioli in Italy and something in Poland – walking a friend back to International Gateway.
Of course not. How could you even SUGGEST that I would stage a Hidden Mickey? 😉
Second time ever, taking the boat across. This time, were headed to Morocco.
We happened to be passing by 🙂
Goofy is having just too much fun in this picture 🙂
There is a bit of a breeze and the clouds are sailing by at a good clip. Luggage stowed, all checked out, time for coffee
Another terrific day hanging out with friends – so lucky 😉 Good night, everyone!
We can hear Sugar Ray playing from American Adventure. Going to find a spot for the special Illuminations show in honor of EPCOT’s 30th Anniversary.
We are at a table by the kitchen, and his lion is on the wall.
We liked I so much for lunch, were back for dinner!
We know our reward for marching up here will be AIR CONDITIONING!
Morocco looks gorgeous against the amazing blue Florida sky. It’s really humid but we found some shade.
WELL worth it! Wish this was available as a full meal. Had the Chardonnay too.
It was raining in Animal Kingdom earlier – guess its coming over here now
I’ll spare you the lecture. Just don’t feed the animals ok? Thanks!
Our friend Ed surprised us today, and now he is horribly broken up about missing Duffy
No, don’t try to stop us!
This is the hazelnut polenta Nutella torte thing. TO DIE FOR.
Should reach Germany In a jiffy. Then it’s on to Italy for a little wine cellar action for lunch 🙂
Handing out maps and buttons at the International Gateway – EPCOT is 30 years old today!
We’re standing in France to view the 10 PM presentation of Illuminations.
Italian tapas- like plates, and the desserts look to die for.
Empty sangria pitcher at Via Napoli in EPCOT. Awesome meal !
Via Napoli has the best pizza ovens LOL
Some of my friends will get that caption, and some will not 😉
I love Merida because she does not believe she is helpless, and she is not single-mindlessly pursuing a prince. She knows how to be happy into herself.
Going to duck into MouseGear to get to Festival Center. Have I mentioned that it is HE’LL hot?
Met more friends up at the African Outpost and walked them down front. Cooling of in a shop, then heading to Festival Center. It’s hella HOT – I may require a Mickey Bar.
I know lots of people who are at Walt Disney World this weekend and I hope to see all if the at least once!
Walking into EPCOT from the Swan is quicker than taking a Friendship boat. Yes, the sky really IS that blue 🙂
I have fond memories of taking refuge in the Swan’s courtyards to get some work done during a conference. So relaxing!
I am going to chill and catch some lunch, then head into EPCOT to find the gang. Stay tuned!
I took a side trip to Banana Republic, where I got a FREE dress to wear to my niece’s Sweet 16. Now I am finally on property at Walt Disney World – wheeee!
There’s a hint in the photo….

One more sleep! 🙂 Above is a link to the menu at the 2010 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. I’ve often said that putting a lengthy menu in front of me is a bad move – I want to taste a little bit of everything, but since stomachs have limited capacity, I end up having a hard time deciding.

I am scheduled to visit Orlando at the end of the month. I’ll be going to Universal for sure to see Harry Potter with some old friends from New York. Plan to stop by the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival as well. Now that Disney has launched a new advertising campaign, I suppose these “Celebrate Today” banners will be gone. I wonder what will be in their place? Stay tuned!
