28 photos from the opening weekend of Epcot Food and Wine Fest 2015

Hey folks, it's that time of year again. Time to navigate the crowds of plastered fools, block out the piercing din of screaming children, and sweat through your theme-park attire all in an effort to seek out the culinary gems of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Celebrating its 20th year, the festival marks a yearly ritual for many a gourmand, and judging by the hordes we witnessed on opening weekend, 2015 promises to be the biggest year yet. But enough yammering … on with the show.
