International Food and Wine Festival tips
"Gets busy during Magic Kingdom Not So Scary nights"
Submitted on Oct 19, 2012 by wdwmagic
On nights where the Magic Kingdom is running Halloween Parties, Epcot becomes busy as many day guests leave the Magic Kingdom in the early evening and head to Epcot. The Food and Wine Festival in-turn becomes busy. If you are looking for a quieter time, avoid these days.
"Budget $50 to $80 for Food and Wine"

You need to be realistic and budget between $50 and $80 per person to do this properly. The portions are small, and you will find yourself wanting around 10 or so dishes in place of a meal. Each item is between $4 and $8. Don't expect to spend a small amount of money and be satisfied.
"First and last weekends usually busy"

The opening weekend and final weekend are usually among the most busiest as locals head to the festival to see the opening, and to get one last visit.
"Try buying a gift card to control spending"

For the 2009 festival, Disney introduced a gift card where you could purchase a prepaid card to then spend around the world as you visit the booths. It was a good way to control spending, and limit yourself to a set budget.
