At EPCOT there is a wonderful seafood restaurant. It is called the Coral Reef. The atmosphere is like you are sitting under the water in the ocean.
The food is very tasty.
And even though we normally do not get dessert we could not pass it up on this trip.

Every year there is a magnificent display of samples of different cuisines from around the world. It is the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. There is something to please every palate as well as brews, wines, and cocktails for everyone to love.
The countries highlighted in the festival bring their best and famous dishes to be tried. In fact, there is usually a pairing with an adult beverage for you to enjoy.
There are also food demonstrations by famous chefs.
Make sure you bring an empty stomach when you attend.
However, it seems that no matter how many samples from the Festival you buy you never seem to be full. That is until you get back to your car and realize you definitely ate and drank too much but had a ton of fun.

The festival has wonderful display of planting arrangements in many colors and textures as well as intricate Disney character topiaries.

This week we thought we would do something a little different. This week all our posts will be about Walt Disney World or as we locals like to call it WDW. You see we live about 10 miles as the crow flies from Cinderella’s Castle at the Magic Kingdom. Every night we get to hear the fireworks go off and you almost set your watch to them. Being locals gives us a chance to go to all of the parks fairly often.
Being gardeners one of our favorite rides is Living with the Land at EPCOT. It is a ride that shows how WDW gets some of their produce by growing it right on premise.
In addition, there is a tour called Behind the Seeds that gives an even more in-depth look at all that they do for Florida agriculture and some of their unique growing techniques.
