Epcot 2009 Food & Wine Festival Visit

I visited Epcot on a day near the end of the Food & Wine Festival. As I walked to Epcot, I spotted the Breathless II out for a cruise.

It was the weekend, so World Showcase was crowded with local Florida visitors. I checked out many of the added Festival kiosks that showcased regional food and drink.

I visited Innoventions with some friends. At "Where's the Fire?" I took a photo of a partial classic Mickey, which is at the lower left of several of the wall graphics.

A new attraction inside Innoventions, "Sum of All Thrills," is a helter-skelter simulator experience programmed in advance by the rider.

I like to check out old favorite Hidden Mickeys, to make sure they're still visible. The tiny blue classic Mickey on the large globe in the Yacht Club lobby is intact, waiting for you to marvel at it.

A comfortable autumn day is a perfect time to visit Walt Disney World!

Hidden Mickeys Outside the WDW Parks

I met up with Shontell Crawford and Eric Hollister (of DVC by Resale) to check out some Hidden Mickeys outside the parks. We congregated first at the Grand Floridian Resort.

A friendly Cast Member, Alyssa, showed us a classic Mickey at Gasparilla Grill & Games that I didn't know about. Braces beneath the shelves at the checkout counters are shaped as Mickey!

We stopped by Saratoga Springs Resort, which has some amazing Hidden Mickeys. The classic Mickey rose in the winner's blanket on the horse and jockey statue is one of my favorites.

At Downtown Disney Marketplace, Eric wanted to confirm that Goofy's shadow is still hiding in Goofy's Candy Co. Store. Take a look; he's still there!

Meeting up with Shontell and Eric for some Hidden Mickey hunting was great fun for me. It's nice to share the passion!
