I don't do themed crawls because I want to try EVERYTHING except the stuff that sounds yucky to me (which in my case means anything involving cheese, yuck). First crawl, I try as many of the things that sound most appealing before I bust a gut. Second crawl, ditto, but coming from the other direction. Third crawl, I get to the items that sound interesting but aren't at the top of my list. Fourth crawl, whatever. Fifth crawl...well, you get the idea.

Wow, you can make five crawls. After the first time around I am done. I may consider a themed crawl, because usually by the time I get near the end, I am usually way too full. That's why I alternate starting points. Last year I started in Mexico, so this it will be Canada.

My five (or more) crawls are over several days. No more than two in one day - lunch and dinner. But we do tend to live at the World Showcase during the F&W Fest.

LOL! You guys are too funny. I would love to go and do any crawl this year - but alas I have to miss out in 2013.
