Melbourne, Australia is vying for a key spot as one of the top four food destinations at this year's International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot.

According to Don Richter, Melbourne Tourism Victoria marketing director, the city was asked to bid for the spot by Disney.

Included in the bid is a duplication of Melbourne's laneways lined with street art which leads to a Queen Victoria marketplace featuring food and wine samples.

Unconfirmed reports indicate that the other cities in competition for the four spots include New Orleans, Rio de Janiero and Copenhagen.
