I love reading through these guides and seeing all the options that are going to be available. 2009 presents the usual dazzling array of food and wine options!

Wine seminars, culinary demonstrations and much much more!

Far too much to mention here so take a look at the 40 page guide (note, this is a VERY large file to download so it's going to take you a while to grab it)


Rose Walk near Imagination Walkway
A great way to celebrate with your family, neighbors and new friends! Visit the Rose Walk where you can purchase ice cream from the “Flavorhood,” test your “flavorology” to learn your ice cream personality and enjoy flavorful, fun activities for the entire family!

American Adventure Pavilion
Learn about the history of beer and the awesome art and science of brewing. In addition, glimpse into the world of Samuel Adams and try a variety of world-class beers!
daily demonstrations: 11:50 a.m., 12:35 p.m., 2:05 p.m., 3:35 p.m., 5:00 p.m., and 6:05 p.m.

Enjoy a sample selection of our most popular wines as you stroll Epcot’s World
Showcase. Purchase your Wine Walk Passport for $20 at any of the three wine shops
located in Germany, Italy or France pavilions. The Wine Walk Passport opens the door for you to experience a wine flight package of six hand-selected wines which include: Valekenberg Madonna Spatlese, Valekengerg Madonna Leibframilch, Castello Banfi San Angelo Pinot Grigio, Castello Banfi Rosa Regale, Georges Duboeuf Pouilly Fuisse and Chateau Tour de Segur Bordeaux.

These comparative tastings, hosted by a renowned wine educator, will highlight
the regional influence of a single-grape varietal. Each event will focus on a
different varietal, giving the opportunity to learn how terrior and wine-making
methods affect the characteristics of the wine.
