We were there yesterday! Ate and drank our way around World Showcase.

Favorite foods:
Crab tostada (outside Mexico)
Pulled pork slider with slaw (American Adventure. This was bigger than a normal slider)
Heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad (UK)

My husband really liked the lamb skewer at Morocco.

Favorite drink:
The pink slushie thing at France. Sooo tasty, and I had 4 people stop me and ask where I got it!

Portions were pretty sizeable I thought, especially for a snack credit. The pork slider with slaw is about a meal in itself. Shrimp and grits is a small serving of grits with 3-4 fairly large shrimp. Pork brisket was a piece of brisket with jalapeno cornbread and collard greens. Crab tostada was a mediumish tostada with a pretty sizeable serving of crab (we didn't particularly care for this). For beer drinkers, the beer flight in American world is a decent deal -- 4 6 oz. drinks for $13. My daughter really liked the watermelon salad. Prices will run you $3-7.50.

OMG!!! I can NOT believe that I am going a week from Monday and I am just finding out about this! That's what I get for being scarce on the DIS right before a trip. I've never been this time of year and not only did I not realize that it was going to be F&G, but am just finding out there will be FOOOOOD. I am literally jumping up and down on the inside right now. Not sure how I'm going to make it to March 18th.

Going to have to get the Dole Whip w/ spiced rum!
Has anyone tried the Dole Whip, any pics? I'm dying to know how it is.

Found my answer! http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2013/0...al/#more-77727

The food offerings have been pretty good, but the portion sizes are pretty comparable to F&W. The prices seemed higher. Far fewer food booths, but lots of alcohol offerings.

Just like the F&W, there was a passport that you can get stamped at the kiosks and at some of the activity spots.

Just saw this pic of the cake:
