Epcot is my favorite Disney theme park. I love walking around the World Showcase and going to the different attractions. My favorites are Living With the Land because I love taking the boat tour through the green house, seeing food excites me :P and I love Spaceship Earth.

During our trip, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival was going on. It is running from Sept 25 - Nov 8. Besides the countries already in the World Showcase at Epocot, the festival included additional countries offering food and drink specific to that country as well as special dinners, demonstrations, and seminars.

Steve & I stopped at four different countries and sampled different things from each. I felt that the prices were a little pricey for the portion size, but the quality and taste of everything we tried was good.
New England Lobster Roll with Sam Adams Cherry Wheat from the Hops and Barley stand

Quesadilla con Chorizo from Mexico City, Mexico

Mealie Soup with Crabmeat and Chili Oil from Capetown, South Africa

Seared Beef Tenderloin with Sweet Potato Puree and Mango Barbeque Sauce from Cape Town, South Africa

Spaetzel Gratin with Ham and Cheese from Munich, Germany

Nuernberger Sausage on a Pretzel Roll from Munich, Germany

Coke World at Disney... I tried Beverly, gross!

I also went on the Test Track ride, the fastest ride at Disney (or so I'm told) as well as a new ride, Soarin' which simulates hang-gliding. In one of the Innovations buildings, I rode a Segway for the first time. In both parks we went to, there were really no lines for any of the rides. I'm thankful for that because had the line for Thunder Mountain not moved as fast as it did, I probably would have chickened out of getting on. As scared as I was, Steve was always there to hold my hand or offer to hold my hand. For most of the rides I was frozen in my seat, griping on to the handles and safety bar hahah.
