As most of you know, my daughter works for Disney in Florida. For us, that means we go to Orlando more than the average couple living 1000 miles away. We don't spend the hours in the parks that we did when our kid's were young, but there are certain events that we really enjoy. Epcot has always been my favorite of the parks, and The Food and Wine Festival is one of my favorites things to do when we visit.
The fabulous landscaping artists replace many of the plants with "food related" beauties during the weeks of the festival.
This year we were greeted by a real cranberry bog, complete with an expert explaining how it all works. It was really beautiful. I've only seen them in pictures.
It always amazes me how beautiful nature can
be in the middle of the theme park full of people.
I'm always drawn to this area, near the Twining's Tea Cottage.
Now, for some of the food we sampled.
