Today we have a report from Preview Night of the Food and Wine Festival at Walt Disney World's EPCOT.
This is my absolute favorite theme park and favorite theme park event so I'm totally jealous of the great pictures Renée has sent us. For those of you going this year, have a great time and I hope you enjoy the preview. - Gregg
