    Yes it is. The Flower and Garden Show now has kiosks much like the Food and Wine Festival. Not as many, but enough to keep the guests happy. :)

    Last year, The kiosks at the flower and garden show were less crowded and didn't have as many obnoxiously drunk people as F&WF. It was so much more enjoyable

    Obnoxiously drunk people? I've never in all my years seen anyone be obnoxious due to drink at EPCOT. I've seen happy people, who probably shouldn't drink anymore than they already have, and I've seen people be a bit loud when having fun, but never anyone who behaved like they were in the local honky tonk. :unsure:

    I don't know how you would have missed them to be perfectly honest. There is a huge difference between being happy, loud and inebriated as opposed to being falling down drunk. As I don't go to honky tonks, I'm not quite sure how that compares.

    Well, perhaps I go at different times than you. (One would expect to see "falling down drunk" in a local honky tonk which is just another name for a local bar).

    The day was lovely...though Jon and I both agree we enjoy the F&W experience much more. The "outdoor kitchens", as they are called, seem to be a bit of an afterthought, and lack the creativity the F&W event seems to have. They certainly do not have the same following either. We walked up to each kiosk and never waited more than a minute or two in line for our food.

    I'll post a few more photos later today!

    No lines and huge crowds are why it's so much better lol.

    Oh, make no mistake, the huge crowds were still there - the park was TEEMING with people, they just weren't in line for the food - most likely because they, like us, didn't feel as though much of the food was worth standing in line for. Easier access isn't going to make the food taste any better. Ultimately, in our opinion, while a couple of the kiosks had some really nice offerings, they were the exception - not the rule.

    To be fair, this is only the second year for the Outdoor Kitchens, so perhaps they haven't "found their legs" as of yet. But for now, we'll stick with the F&W Fest.

    Ok, I will ask another goofy question (my pardon to Goofy). Do they charge for the items or is is part of the festival?

    Not a silly question at all! Yes, they do charge for the food items - and it's not cheap (especially for what you get!). I'll provide some more information in a separate thread, but Jon and I "snacked around The World" from 11-3 on Thursday and spent right around $100 just at the food kiosks.

    Welcome home :hug2:

    It's surprising how the cost mounts up at the kiosks, so the F&WF is a lot better then?
