As much as I love the Food & Wine Festival, the addition of the Outdoor Kitchens several years ago turned the Flower and Garden Festival into my favorite time of year to visit Epcot. The weather is beautiful, every corner of the Park seems alive, and the crowds aren't quite as intense a at Food & Wine making for an amazing time to visit Epcot.

Flower & Garden has become even more brilliant since the food stalls have been added - can't wait for it again this year. Looking forward to seeing the menus when they're released (hopefully soon!)
