In each issue we share tips from our readers. If you have a tip to share send it to us at

We’re looking for your best tips to share with us all about touring during the summer and tips for experiencing the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. In addition we are looking for your best tips for experiencing Halloween events at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

New for this year is Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak . This scavenger hunt has guests searching for Remy statuettes hidden around World Showcase. The goal is to help Remy as he ventures around World Showcase collecting ingredients for his signature dish, ratatouille. Use the World Showcase map to locate the statues, mark your location with a sticker, and even receive a prize.  You can purchase your map and stickers from The Festival Center, Pin Central, Port of Entry or World Traveler at International Gateway. You will then use the map to record your discoveries while helping Remy, by placing the corresponding ingredient sticker on the map. Guests return their map (does not have to be completed) to the redemption location at Port of Entry (Plaza Towers) by Nov. 16 to pick up their surprise – a limited release pin!

Planning your trek around the World Showcase to sample everything you just have to indulge in is no small feat.  So, at the end of July we rejoice when the official list of participating countries and menus are released.  Now, we need to decide where and what we want this year and how to accomplish everything.

First tip – avoid weekends if at all possible.  Traditionally weekends are the most crowded for the Food & Wine.  Local residents generally visit then and when you add all the people who travel to Orlando for this event it can get pretty crowded.

Second tip – buy the special Food & Wine gift card which can be worn on the wrist.  You can put as much or as little money on this card as you like and it’s right there to swipe at each kiosk instead of having to pull out cash or a credit card for every morsel.  You will have to remove it from your wrist to use it but it still saves time.
