No, you didn't miss it, but there's not much time left in 2012 to go to Epcot's Food & Wine Festival. You have until November 12, 2012. An admission ticket to Epcot is required to attend the festival. Tapas are usually around $3 to $8 so not too expensive but not extremely cheap either so be sure to look at the 2012 Food & Wine Festival menu and get an idea of what you want before you go!
Most events like HGTV home entertaining, book signings, culinary demonstrations, taste seminars, and sampling at the Festival Center Wine Shop will be held in the Festival Center. In addition to food-related events, guests can enjoy the Eat to the Beat concert series each evening.
