    I'm less worried about the actual food, I'd just wish they were being represented.

    I agree. The Polish culture is a very old one and has an interesting history.

    I see that a lot of the kiosks are in place already.

    I heard a legend once, a legend so fantastic that disbelief leaves it shrouded in mystery. The claim is this - Once there was a time when the walkway around WS lagoon wasn't littered with random storage shed like structures and that a parade....an actual parade could parade around the lagoon. Crazy I know.

    Which makes you wonder why. Obviously it does not take them that long to install and I can't imagine it takes them over a month to get their health inspection. So why install so early, like what is the point? I could see 2 weeks or so out for inspection purposes but a month? Seems excessive.

    They store the kiosks where Ratatouille is going between France and Morocco, so perhaps they needed to clear that area to begin initial prep work?

    A month out is pretty standard. From install to permitting through the county to training, it all adds up.

    I heard double decker buses used to drive around it. Can't be true.

    There is an ancient legend of the Sage of Time. It tells us that when the he first walked upon EPCOT, the World Showcase Promenade was one open walkway. There was space and benches, and the atmosphere was relaxing. The years passed, and the Sage of Time walked Epcot once again. The The Sage of Time saw that the Promenade had grown cluttered. People no longer strolled or relaxed together, but strove with each other in an attempt to drink as much as possible. There was only Drunkytown, and the park, it was dying...

    At least the "sheds" have gotten exponentially better themed over the years - most are quite elaborate now. But with the increasing length and frequencies of the festivals, combined with the growing amount of permanent walkway clutter, it'd be nice to see a bit more thought put into where/how the booths are located rather than plopping them at seemingly random spots.

    The pins for Food & Wine have been revealed with what is now the 4th logo I've seen for this year.

    You have to wonder why they have never done a Food Rocks pin series for Food and Wine. Seems like the 35th anniversary and all the retro stuff they are putting out for it would have been a good fit... oh well.

    Soon enough you'll have (another?) Kitchen Kabaret pin at least.

    Releasing soonish (September probably) for the 35th, so not entirely related to F&W but still.
