I am over-the-moon excited about the upcoming Epcot International Food and Wine Festival and this year my epicurean loving heart is overflowing at the thought of experiencing a second layer of foodie fun at the 3rd annual Food & Wine Weekends Celebration at the Hilton Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria.
I feel like the resident Disney blogger at the Hilton Bonnet Creek. (Shhh…Don’t tell Mickey…but its my favorite resort on Disney property) However, this will be my first time experiencing the offerings at the resort’s special Food & Wine Weekends which runs tandem with Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival.
I’ll be sharing loads of pictures this weekend so make sure to follow me over on twitter, facebook and instagram and here’s a list of the scheduled events for Food & Wine Weekends at the Hilton and Waldorf that I’ll be covering Friday and Saturday night.
