Review of 2021 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival - Part Two

Welcome back to another review of the 2021 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival food and beverage offerings! If you read Ashley's original review , you know that the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival kicked off on July 15th and ends on November 20th so there's still about a month left of this wonderful time of Epcot fun.  For those who haven't visited the Festival before, each year the Festival includes Global Marketplaces where you can taste your way around the world, live entertainment and fun activities the whole family can enjoy. I tend to focus on the Global Marketplaces, because food is life :)  I spent two days in Epcot this month and was able to sample quite a bit!  Here's what I tried and my thoughts on it all. Appleseed Orchard Location: Canada Theater The first major pro of this booth is that it is indoors - enjoy a break from the elements!  The food options are very limited here but the beer and cider options are plentiful.  The apple crum

La Creperie de Paris

October 1st was a special day at Walt Disney World Resort as it kicked off the Most Magical Celebration for the 50th anniversary of the parks in Florida.  While many people flocked to the Magic Kingdom, we made our way over to Epcot as it was also the grand opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and La Creperie de Paris in the France Pavilion in World Showcase. This new area is a stunning addition to the already beautiful pavilion, and since it is new, the area is definitely seeing its fair share of traffic right now.  La Creperie has a quick service window for crepes to go, but we opted for the full table service experience for our first time here.  We arrived at park opening and after about a 20 minute wait we were escorted to our table and greeted by our server who was absolutely fantastic.  *Please note, now that the restaurant has been open for a while, it has gone to the reservation system and walk up availability may be limited or not offered. 

Universal's Volcano Bay Premium Seating

If you’ve read our recent blog, Universal's Volcano Bay Basics , you may recall that Volcano Bay has a variety of seating options available for guests. One of the options you can pay to reserve is Premium Seating. Premium Seating is a great option for those that don’t need a Cabana but would like to have the convenience of reserved seating and some additional amenities.   My family was visiting during peak season, and I wanted to make sure we weren’t stressed about finding a place to take a break or having to wait on food.   I was torn about whether we really “needed” this experience upgrade, but I am so happy we went for it! For the best price, you should try to reserve your Premium Seating as far in advance as possible.  While you may be able to get a reservation upon arrival at the park, it’s always a risk. Plus, you will be paying top dollar if you wait to book. You’re probably wondering, what exactly does Premium Seating include? Here is what you get with your reservation: R
