Yes, there are different food and drink booths like they have at the food and wine festival, but with flowers, gardens and character topiaries too

dont know if i should take the car and just try the food or bus/taxi it and enjoy it all

thanks for the info

if i was going to use a taxi uber i would think what would the cost be from the rosen inn @ pointe to epcot

also would they drop you off at the epcot entrance or would it be the TTC

Uber can drop off at Epcot, it's only MK that is restricted to TTC. The dropoff/pickup point is in the parking lot. Estimated fare on uber/en-GB/fare-estimate/ is $11-15 each way.

I would say that F&G is a smaller version of F&W in the food/drink department. Still plenty to choose from, but not the star of the show like F&W if that makes sense. But it's the 25th anniversary next year so may be bigger than usual.

Disney Food Blog reviews every stall if you want to look at this year's for guidance - a lot of the stalls do tend to repeat each year. I'm going next year as well, can't wait - although I'm more interested in the flowers than the food.

i didnt know it was the 25th flower festival next year
i think its leave the car at the hotel day

more daft questions
is there wifi near the car park for the uber ?
at the moment the phone i will be using in the parks will only have wifi

its a tracfone from 2016 would i still be able to get a sim for it with calls and data ?

where would be the best place to get the sim from ?

does uber phone/text or use the app when there here to pick you up
how do you tip ?

Can't answer specifically on the phone/wifi, I use 3 which has included data roaming in the US so just leave my roaming on. If you have an unlocked UK phone, you can use their PAYG service to access the same roaming plan rather than trying to use the (I'm presuming) US phone.

But as for Uber, the app alerts you when the driver is there. The driver may also phone/text if they're having trouble locating you though. This happened to me a couple of times on my last (non-Disney) trip when they've gone to the wrong pickup point - this was more a problem of the hotel I was staying at though, it had two entrances and they went to the other. Tipping is built into the app now, you add it when you review the ride if you want to.
