EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

Attraction | "Food and Wine Festival"

For the month of October, at Epcot Center, is the Food and Wine Festival. This were you can go around the lands to taste the different wines (or drink) and food from that land. You can also have class or tasting at the Center. Just call the Center to get prices, times and dates. This is a good time if this were an adult trip.

Disney's Animal Kingdom

Attraction | "Walt Disney World"

If you are the kind of person that doesn't like lots of people or long lines, then this is the time for you to go. Pretty much the only people there, are from the UK. If you are going for the first time, then I would call Disney and request a tape of the park, so you can get a feel for the parks. Also you can get a guide of Disney book, at the bookstore. This will help you know how to go through the parks, and gives you helpful hints.
