Tom Corless’ 10/2-10/5/10 WDW Photo Report

I spent a few days at Walt Disney World recently to experience the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. I took plenty of newsworthy photos to share, so let’s take a look:

It’s the 15th edition of the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot

A huge 15 topiary in World Showcase

Another cake by the Festival Center

A look inside the Festival Center

A map of the Festival Center

The extinct Seasons of the Vine film from California Adventure is once again playing at Epcot

Let’s take a look at some Festival booth menus

This is for the Mexico booth

The Kielbasa and Potato Pierogie

Werther’s “Karamell-Kuche” candy shop has opened in Germany, replacing the Goebel store

The hand made treats look amazing

They also sell a selection of candy like you’ll find in your local grocery store

The window is full of candy

Prices for the hand-crafted items

It gets busy in here and it isn’t wide enough for people to pass, you would think Universal designed it (zing!)

Pictures on the walls of the candy shop

How does this compare to normal store prices?

It’s Oktoberfest in Germany

A new Soarin’ Over California shirt available inside The Land

There is a permanent sign on the Disney Visa meet and greet experience now…

Probably for how popular this has actually become

Some of the soft-line WDW 40th Anniversary merchandise is now available at MouseGear, including these pajamas

This tag is most of the items

Another logo sewn on

These shirts aren’t new, they have just been slightly modified for the 40th anniversary

Some new character shirts allow guests to pick up an inexpensive Halloween costume

Two new Gallery of Lights pieces have made their way to WDW, here is the Mad Tea Party from Disneyland

Also now available, the Jungle Cruise

Moving over to the Magic Kingdom, the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station is now the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant

One sign still says Noodle Station

In Fantasyland, work has begun on the roof of the Mad Tea Party

Rumors indicate that a glass roof similar to the one found at Disneyland Paris may be on the way

Work on Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid is moving along quickly

Work continues on the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

Large cranes tower over Fantasyland

The first pieces of the Be Our Guest Restaurant have become visible

A view over the walls shows a parking lot of construction vehicles

The giant pile of dirt is completely gone

Did you know they are still putting these on some broken seats at Stitch’s Great Escape?

The kennels of Walt Disney World are now the Lost and Found

Here’s where the Kennel sign once stood
