Just as quickly as the season arrives, so it also ends. All things food and wine are well underway at Disney, but not for much longer. In the sea of events, one that’s not to be missed is Food & Wine Weekends at Waldorf Astoria and Hilton Bonnet Creek happening now through November 12. Presenting exceptional wine and culinary events over the course of nine weekends, the resorts’ Food & Wine Weekends are designed to complement the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
These weekends include a macaron bar, traditional Royal Tea and Bar du Chocolat with champagne tasting. You can also make reservations to enjoy the tasting dinners at the hotels’ signature restaurants, Bull & Bear, La Luce and Zeta Asia.
We attended the Taste of La Luce which takes place Fridays and Saturdays from 6 – 11 p.m. Experience a four course meal for just $55 and be sure to add on the wine pairings for an extra $35. Go with a friend who doesn’t mind sharing their meal and order all ten options to experience each choice on this prix-fixe menu. We enjoyed a fun and flavorful evening and highly recommend adding La Luce to your list of fall culinary events!
