Hello and welcome to another Bee trip report! My DW M and I had the privilege of attending the opening weekend of the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, and the timing couldn't have been better! We both go "back to school" soon (she's an academic admin at a university and I teach voice and piano at a performing arts school), and last month we found out we have to move from the very affordable apartment we've loved for over three years because someone new bought the building and wants everyone out. We considered cancelling the trip given the moving news but almost everything was paid for already, and we decided in the end that we really needed this escape from reality. We made the right call! You may know from the PTR to my California trip that this trip was originally scheduled for the end of September and beginning of October to coincide with Epcot's 35th birthday, but a flight change caused us to reschedule. More on that here. The Plans Who: M and me What: A quick trip to Food and Wine! When: Thursday, August 31-Monday, September 4 Where: Caribbean Beach and WDW Dolphin Why: Because we needed a distraction from real life! How: Lyft, Southwest Airlines, Magical Express, and more Lyft! Keep reading for new experiences, old favorites, and of course lots of food and drinks!
