<< Conclusion >>

Stick a fork in this edition, cause it's done.  We hope it's gotten you excited to plan a trip to Walt Disney World during the annual Food and Wine Festival event.  The food and fun of the 2009 festival continues to be dished out at Epcot through November 8, 2009-- so there's still time for a last minute trip to catch the culinary excitement.  Dates for the 2010 Festival will likely be announced early next year, so even if you can't make this year's festival keep an eye out for next year's dates.  We'll be back in a few weeks with another edition of the Insider.  See ya real soon!
