Tips For Attending the Food and Wind Festival at EPCOT 2014 #Travel #Food

One of my all time favorite events at Disney is the Food and Wine Festival held at EPCOT. This year it is being held from September 19 thru November 10, 2014. this event literally allows you to eat and drink your way around the world. However to survive here are a few of my tips for making the most of my day. 

Apple Maple Spice Latte

1. Make A Budget

I know that sounds nuts but trust me when I say that when the sights and smells hit you it can get crazy. So make a budget as to what you are willing to spend. Then purchase a gift card. This way you will know when that gift card is empty you're done for the day. No over spending and you know what you spent for the day.

2. Make a Plan

Pick up a Marketplace Passport. This way you can have an idea of what is being served and you can decided before getting in line what you want to order. Not only does this make things faster it also allows you to decide what you really want to try the most. you may decide having Lamb Meatballs is more enticing then a mango smoothie. This is also a great way of knowing in advance what is being served throughout the park so you can sort of pick and chose what to eat.

3. Go Early

I have learned if you enter early as things are opening you beat the crowds and the heat. No one wants to be eating in 90 degree weather it's just hot, sticky and uncomfortable. So go early enjoy afternoon temps, eat and then find a shady spot to enjoy a cool drink in late afternoon.

4. Book a Room

Ok big tip here if you plan to drink alcohol at the festival book a room. Not only is this a convenient way to enjoy all the evening events but it is also safer for you and your family. Plus after all the eating you're going to be doing it's nice to be able to go back and take a nap.

Finally my biggest tip I can give you is to have fun and be adventurous. Don't be afraid to try something new just because you can't pronounce it doesn't mean it's not delicious. So go have fun, eat, be merry and most of all make memories that last forever. 

so tell me have you ever been to a food and wine festival? and if you have whats the most interesting thing you have tried?

Glow Stick Bracelets - 100 Bracelets #Review #glowsticks

Hi my name is Rebecca and I'm addicted to glow sticks. Yes I admit it I love them. I get excited when I see anything that glows from sticks to bracelets. So to receive a 100 glow sticks from Blue Skies and Tomoson I was tickled for sure.

The glow sticks came in a protective tube to keep them from breaking and had enough clips to create so many awesome things. There were many colors to chose from and I was so happy to get to playing. Oh and can you believe there was 100 glow sticks in this tube talk about addiction.

I was excited to break into these glow sticks for trick or treating at Disney. After much though I chose to create a few circle to hang off my costume for trick or treating. Son attached a couple to his treat bag. We also handed a few out to other kids at Disney having fun. 

I really loved playing with these glow sticks and I was impressed at how long they lasted. When we broke them to make them glow I was thinking I get an hour or two tops from them but at the five hour mark they were still glowing. that alone was impressive. I have to admit because we have so many left I am trying to find more places to use them maybe I should take them to the up coming concert I'm going to this weekend.

If you are like me and are addict to glow sticks you can purchase them HERE. 

So tell me do you or your children like playing with glow sticks?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
