On November 4 my niece and I attended the Parisian Afternoon lunch at Monsieur Paul's in the French pavilion at Epcot. Two very enjoyable hours! The mimosas flowed freely, the cold soup course was good, the sandwiches and mushroom cupcake were so tasty and the dessert plate was almost too pretty to eat. We were celebrating my niece's birthday and her dessert plate had Happy Birthday written on it in chocolate sauce! The commentary between courses was interesting. My niece was asked to read from the menu in her best French accent! She nailed it! The chef addressed us when dessert was served and he got a rousing ovation. He explained how the meal was put together to give us as many different tastes as possible representing France in one meal. A wonderful experience! A couple sitting next to us had attended three other Festival meals and they liked this one the best. There were seven different goodies on the dessert plate-ooh la la!!!

Pros:

good foods,lovely atmosphere,charming waiters,fun!

Cons:

none

The food and wine pairing at Spice Roads in Morocco is always great. This one may be the best ever. It is a complete 4 course meal.

After check in, we were greeted with a flute of sparkling wine. The first course was shrimp in a thin sauce with corn paired with a delicious white wine. I am sorry I did not keep the menu so I cannot tell you exactly what the wines were. I restrained myself from licking the dish.

The second course was incredible, a spicy tuna with veggies. The tuna was perfect, seared on the outside, raw in the middle, and just melted in your mouth. It was just a bit spicy and paired perfectly with a lovely rose wine.

The third course was roast lamb paired with a red wine. The wines were generous pours. I remember loving the pairing, but I think all the wine interfered with my memory of it!

Finally, dessert was chocolate baklava accompanied by a dessert wine. A perfect ending to a wonderful meal.

In my opinion, this is the best deal at Disney! It will save you money on dinner......you won't want any! Don't miss it!

Pros:

Fantastic food, wine, pairings

Cons:

none

Pros:

great food, organized, fun presentation

Returning to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival this year is the Parisian Breakfast, a program designed to showcase the goodies produced by the France pavilion's beloved bakery, Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie. I reviewed this special ticketed offering last year, and I'm happy to report that nothing much has changed! It's still a delightful and delicious way to start your day in Epcot, with an abundance of fantastic French pastries, strong French coffee, rich hot chocolate, and -- I must not forget to mention -- unlimited orange juice and champagne Mimosas! You can read my review of this year's Parisian Breakfast here: http://allears.net/tp/ep/fw14/2014-epcot-food-and-wine-festival-parisian-breakfast.htm

Pros:

Good value for money; terrific pastries

Cons:

None

We (six very senior citizens) were lucky to be able to attend two French Regional lunches during our one week visit. The Cotes du Rhone and Bordeaux regionals were well represented. Every course provided a new taste treat. A Celery Zephyr with Black Truffles was served with an light mousse topping. Different and delicious. The Bordeaux were from the Rothschild Domaines, and lived up to their reputation.

Pros:

Quality and Quantity of food.

Cons:

None
