Ever since I moved to Orlando, I have been enjoying Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival every year. Disney’s Epcot World Showcase hosts an annual food & wine festival showcasing dishes from around the world by having booth stops at every country (plus additional ones that pop up just for the event). The festival is going on right now & will run through November 12 so if you’re a foodie make sure to check this event out! There are special events, culinary demonstrations & seminars, & of course lots of delicious food from around the world.
Being a vegetarian at Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival can be a little challenging because our options are limited. In the past, while my friends are partaking in every meat under the sun, I’m stuck with mostly desserts & drinks to taste…but not this year. Disney has made an effort to give us vegetarians a few more options & we’re consolidating them for you here at Peas in the Blog. If you’re headed to Epcot’s Food & Wine & want to know what your vegetarian options are we’ve got you covered:
