However, there are all kinds of wonderful things associated with the Food and Wine Festival, not to mention all of the imaginative rides and displays in Epcot. To go to the festival you must have a ticket into Epcot, and expect to spend about $50 per person - which for food and drinks is not too terrible, especially when you are getting all those wonderful bites along the way! Disneyland has their own versions in the California Adventure, both during the Christmas Holidays and at their festival in March and April - those are surely don't miss events as well!


Disney theme parks are so much more than just rides for kids. Adult activities are everywhere, and I never miss an opportunity to take part because I rarely regret my efforts.


Enjoy Disney!!
