It’s Baaack! Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Launches Today

posted on September 27th, 2013 by Pam Brandon, Disney Parks Food Writer


One of the world’s biggest, best food and wine festivals opens today – the 18 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival presented by Chase at Walt Disney World Resort. And you have 46 days, through November 11, to enjoy it all.

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Launches Today

By the numbers: more than 300 national and international wines, more than 220 tastes and sips priced $3-$8 around World Showcase Lagoon, and 138 Eat to the Beat! concerts. There are opportunities to enjoy the cuisines of 100-plus celebrity chefs and 160 Walt Disney World chefs. And more than 300 wine and beer seminars. The hard part is narrowing down your picks.

Where to begin? We like to start each visit at the Festival Center to make sure we don’t miss any of the daily events – from the Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog to fireworks each night, there’s lots more to do than eat and drink – but don’t miss the new Scotland Marketplace or Brazil (returning by popular demand).

One of our favorites is Party for the Senses grand tasting events, back this year on October 5, 12, 19, 26 and November 2, with incredible eats and more than 50 wines and beers and live entertainment.

Information and reservations for select programs is at www.epcotfoodfestival.com. Call 407-WDW-FEST (939-3378) to make reservations.

See you on the Promenade!

Will there be a Gluten Free map of the kiosks released again this year? That was extremely helpful last year.
