  • By far the best Food and Wine Festival! The Brunch Fried Chicken and Waffle is a MUST GET; the chicken was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and the orange popping jelly really tied the entire thing together. Another must get was the Buffalo Turkey Leg, it's a bang for the buck! It was around 13 dollars! and the same price as a normal turkey leg at Disney; it was topped with blue cheese and the buffalo sauce was just perfect. The Animal Cookie shake is also a MUST GET. Overall, had an amazing experience.
  • Absolutely loved it! When we went we took advantage of the fast passes which made our first trip such a success. We rode and visited every attraction in one day! The park attendants were so helpful and added to our visit. One tip I wish we had was about getting a good spot for the fireworks. If you wish to do this you must go early to the front of the park.
