EPCOT Food and Wine Festival Menus Released And Ranked

Earlier this week, Disney released the full menus for the Food and Wine Festival booths.  The festival runs from September 19 to November 10 for a total of 53 days – the most ever.  It is one of my favorite events that Disney has during the year.  This year, however, I’m missing by about 10 days.  Most people are displaying the menus in alphabetical order.  I’ve gone through the menus and have ranked them (in my opinion) from must-have to I’ll pass.  On to the rankings!

Again, these are just my rankings of the booths based on my food tastes.  Your list will probably be completely different.  Hopefully, these rankings will help you decide what booths to stop at and what booths are worth skipping.  It’s a big festival.  A guest won’t get through all the booths in one trip.  It’s either a multi-day event or you need to come up with sort of priority list.

Thanks for reading!
