What Would Mr. Creosote Do? 4 Weekends at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Why, he’d EXPLODE of course. Which if you have seen Monty Python's Meaning of Life you would realize.

So might I once I am done with four weekends (starting September 25, October 3, October 16 and October 29) at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival, including some festival special events. Plus a few special guest regular WDW restaurants. And maybe one or two from Universal crashing the party.

This is going up now because I will not have time to post it before I go to Florida. The reviews will be live except for the first weekend. I’m not at a DVC resort for the September weekend and will not have free internet, so no review posts until Monday the 28th. The other weekends are with DVC and I can post live from there.

I do not write things down and I don't carry cards to rate the food items, so my impressions will be whatever sticks in my mind and doesn't get pushed out by tequila.

I will be using, once again, the patented and slightly improved Simpsons Pictoral Rating System. In order of prestige:

The HOMER



Homer will be awarded to food and drinks that go Beyond the Burns.

The MONTY BURNS



The “Full Monty Burns” will designate excellent food. (For my taste it’s going to have to be somewhat unusual and have a great deal of flavor to rate a Full Monty.)

The LISA



The “Lisa” designates food which is good and nice, but doesn’t have whatever extra is needed to earn a Full Monty.

The NED



The “Ned” is for just okay. I can’t call it good, but it’s not bad either. It’s okely dokely, neighbor.

RELEASE THE HOUNDS



“Release the Hounds” means that wild dogs should be set upon whoever allowed this dish to be served.

First up: two culinary demonstrations and Kouzzina, possibly some food booth offerings, likely Cava del Tequila.

Can't wait for these!

Maybe I'll end up running into you that first weekend.

I know I'm going to end up trying some tequila at the cave

I'll be there during your first weekend trip. If you see a redhead downing margaritas and taking many pictures of Wall*E be sure to say hello.

That could actually be me except for the Wall-E part. I think I'm also about 15 years older so nobody will confuse us even without Wall-E.

I think you are going to the same demo Friday as me and my mother, so will keep an eye out for Wall-E.

So, I will be on the look out for two red heads!! Both drinking margaritas and one with Wall-e.

I will also be there this weekend with my DH. We are really looking forward to it. Only have one sit down and that is Kouzzina for breakfast on Saturday. The rest of the time it will be snacking and drinking.

Oh and really looking forward to the "cave".

Nala, we are really looking forward to your reviews. Just love your rating system and especially adding Homer!

Have a great time!
