  • Is there a way to get a copy of the roasted cauliflower recipe? My wife and kids have Celiac and they were repeat offenders to the Honey booth, they loved that sampling.

  • So many delicious things to try!! Need to find out where Plaza Showcase is. My only problem is I love Sunshine Seasons Power Salad so much, I can’t miss it. So much food, so little time!! How late do the booths stay open? I am anxiously awaiting the merchandise preview as well! Keeping my eye out for a Festival Pandora charm. We are going the week of March 11th. Can’t wait to be in beautiful Epcot!!

  • Love this years line up. I’m glad to see multiple places with drink flights.

  • I can’t wait for the MERCH announcement!!!

  • I cannot wait to try the above items!! I am still waiting for the food and drink listing for Food and Wine at DCA. Do you know when those may be up?? Thank you in advance.

  • When will we see previews of this years Flower and Garden merchandise???

  • So if we now know the food, hopefully merchandise will be next! [fingers crossed]
