I have a couple of suggestions that may help you tour the countries with ease.
Get a park map and a festival guide from the entrance of Epcot. This will help you decide on where you want to start off and look over any schedules of demonstrations going on that you may be able to sign up for. Remember that some of the wine seminars and dinners will need to be scheduled ahead of time with reservations. You may call Disney Dining starting on August 16th
to make arrangements or the online booking system. You can access the official page of the festival here
Pick up a Disney wearable mini gift card to load up funds to make purchasing food and souvenirs a lot easier. You can reload it any of the kiosks as you go along. Last year at the bottom of your receipt showed your gift card balance to keep track of spending.
Make sure you pick up your passport at the festival center to keep track of the food and drinks you sampled that you enjoyed. That way when you get home you have a souvenir of your cuisine experience and you can remember what you had to share your suggestions with others.
