Are you a fan of food from around the world? 

The 19th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Disney at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. lets guests taste food from around the globe without having to pull out a passport. 

On a recent trip, I got a behind-the-scenes look at the event that draws about 1 million people for its unique food bites at the 36 booths that ring the park's World Showcase Lagoon.

The event, which started Sept.19 and runs until Nov. 10, is a 53-day feast of food and drink from 30 countries and six concept booths, including new comers like Patagonia and Terra, the first-ever all-vegan booth.  

It takes over 200 chefs to complete the dishes, and wine experts and cookbook authors are hand to talk about the different cuisine.  

"A lot of guests wait for this time of the year and the amazing thing is how we put everything together. It's like we are opening 28 new restaurants, and the beginning of the festival is our opening day," said Yelitza Acevedo, Epcot International Food & Wine Festival's guest services manager.

The food fest is free with park admission ($94 for ages 10+), but visitors pay for each tapas-sized portion, which are priced $3.00-$8.00 each.  Drinks are additional. Guests are given a paper passport with food and beverage offerings that can get stamped along the way. 

Here are some of my favorites.
