Disney Food Blog's Mini-Guide to the 2012 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival - Available Now!

Don't be fooled by the title - there is nothing "mini" about the Disney Food Blog Mini-Guide to the 2012 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival e-book, which gives you all the information you need to maximize your experience at the 2012 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. The festival runs from September 28th through November 12th, and tickets for special events go on sale today!


"The Disney Food Blog Mini-Guide to the 2012 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival e-Book has the very best tips, information, and advice to be sure you enjoy every minute of your time at the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival! With over 160 pages of information, you can plan ahead and be ready to dive right in as soon as you arrive. So much is going on at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival this year; make sure you don’t have any regrets after you leave!"

We took a quick spin through the e-book last night, and, as always with the DFB guides, it is fantastic - can't wait to read through it in greater depth over the coming weeks, although it's a bit disappointing since our family won't be making it down to the festival this year. Of course, the more time we spend looking at the great photos and reading the reviews of all the delicious foods and fantastic experiences described in the DFB Mini-Guide, the more likely we are to find a way to make a trip down to WDW and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival happen!
