Tips for Conquering Epcot Food and Wine

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

In my last post, I listed some of my favorite fall events and festivities in Orlando, one of them being Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. If you’ve been to this event, or just attempted to eat and drink around the world, you probably noticed how popular it is among the bachelor and bachelorette parties. Well, I was one of those a few weeks ago. Seems like nowadays you can’t go to Epcot Food and Wine without making some sort…

Festive Fall Events in Orlando, Florida

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel Universal Orlando

What does Fall mean to me? Crisp air, falling leaves and cozy blankets. Unfortunately, Florida doesn’t lend itself to these luxuries very often.  In fact, the first Florida “fall front” blew through earlier this week and the temperatures finally fell from the high 90’s to low 80’s (we’re even going to drop to 70’s next week!!!!!). So, while I would love to believe we would have a cool fall season, it likely won’t happen, so fall to me includes theme…

Walkers, Weddings and Wine

Life

While I’m excited it’s the weekend, I’m a little nervous for what’s to come. I mean there’s the usual errands and cleaning to do, but come Sunday night around 9 o’clock, it will be that time when my heart is once again ripped from my chest. I’m still trying to catch up after the emotional overload that was last weekend. First of all, The Walking Dead…I wore black on Monday for a reason. After 7 seasons, these characters have become…

All of Orlando is at Disney, why aren't I?

Disney Florida Life Like a Local Travel

You know it’s October in Orlando when all your friends Facebook check-ins are at Epcot Food and Wine Festival.  It’s where every local spends their weekends, and their paychecks.  It doesn’t matter how crowded, how hot or how many hours it takes to find your car at the end of the day, every one is going to do it.  Based on my Facebook, at least 75% of my friends are at Epcot today and a few more headed there now.  After I finish…

Eating and Drinking Around the World

Disney Florida Life Travel

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again… That is definitely my plan when it comes to Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This weekend I ventured forth to conquer the world, but the world kind of conquered me. It was unseasonably hot and the 4-5 drink stops (I can’t really remember) started to do a number on this out-of-practice foodie. I need a little time to warm up, so even though Food & Wine conquered me this time,…

Cheers to National Drink Wine Day!

Life

Today, February 18, is national “drink wine” day!  I say…okay!  This is totally a holiday I can stand behind. I’m enjoying a glass from my favorite bottle of wine, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a refreshing wine packed with both citrus and fruity flavors, pairing perfectly with most foods.  The label says it pairs well with seafood, but me not being a fan of seafood, I have found that it pairs well with chicken, pasta, meats and even hot dogs.…
