Not reading particularly positive reviews of the food, unfortunately. Only a good eats so far.
This year it feels like something is a miss with this festival. first its too long (as all these festivals are) and there is a lot of dead space i think due to the center construction. got rid of a couple Kiosks by test track and by the butterfly pavillion (which had lots of them this year). I guess they're trying to get back into sync with all the exchange workers coming back. Watching Hermans Hermits was fun, cant believe the Peter Noone still gets it done like he does!! im sorry im being a little bit of a downer but i just felt like this festival was missing something and felt disjointed. F&G is one of my favorite as i like seeing all the flowers and such.

wrong, Arts is a perfect length, holiday is too short, leaving only F&G and especially F&W as too long.

Festivals are constant now with only one week in between a festival switchover in which there is no festival.

I would like to see Arts go longer since I think that Garden starts too early with hardly a small portion of their flowers in bloom. (And... I like Garden the best.)

Garden and Holiday can each steal a few weeks from Wine at the beginning and end, since that's the one that's just way too long.

MK's holiday decorations go up Nov 2. No reason why EPCOT has to wait to the 8th, 11th, or Thanksgiving to start the food portion of the Holiday festival.

Since site is based out of England, I was wondering about the word 'biscuits'. My mom is from England, but mainly from my grandparents, I found a few American words hold a different meaning. For some reason, I felt biscuits were closer to cookies than to say a biscuits and gravy in America. Maybe I am thinking of crips or something else, but in is this vain, that biscuits in England are NOT American biscuits that cause me to ask about this 'tea time' display near England (I believe as part of Flower and Garden. Anyway, to the English folks here, please straighten me out here?!?

I would have thought these were scones, not regular biscuits. I have always gotten scones when doing a English Tea experience, like the one offered at the Grand Floridian. Marie

Yep! They are scones. :)


Thanks, I know the picture is not great, but I swear they look like southern Biscuits. I guess I am use to scones being more triangular shaped.

Thanks again!
