Ethereal Lighting and a Spacious Room at Party for the Senses

Take a peek at some of the fabulous food and entertainment from Saturday night’s Party for the Senses at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Only four more Saturday parties at this year’s fest – Oct. 15, 22, and Nov. 5 and 12.

While we love noshing and strolling around World Showcase, this party is a memorable 2 ½ hours (7:30-10 p.m.) of delightful food, drink and close-up action with the amazing Cirque du Soleil musicians and entertainers. Tickets are $145 (plus park admission) but that includes limitless tastes from two dozen food stations and sips of interesting wines, beers and cocktails.

A few tips:

  • Take your time. While some guests rush in and queue up, the food never runs out. Pick a chef with little or no wait, long lines will dwindle with plenty of time for sampling.
  • Don’t miss the beautiful cheese tables, delicious tastes there too.
  • While you may want a table for the evening, it’s just as much fun to wander and share a table. It’s a convivial crowd.

Cheese is Always Part of Each Evening’s Bountiful Spread

  • I also have to agree. We are very disappointed that we planned our trip around Food and Wine and the “Party for the Senses” and found out after the fact that there would be no party on our dates. We called many times to check the dates before making our flights and no one knew what the schedule was going to be. We ran out of time and had to book or lose good airfare. The schedule needs to be out sooner or I agree—Do it every weekend. Also Very disappointed!

  • I agree with Jonathan, we have gone every year for the past 6 years, usually in late september and the last weekend in October. We were even there opening weekend of Food and Wine, figuring Party for the Senses was a definite. We come in from up north and this event is always part of our itinerary. This year there is no Party for the Senses EITHER weekend. What is up with this change–Very disappointed.

  • Still disappointed that you aren’t having an October 29th Party for the Senses when I am down there 🙁 Can we get the dates for PftS way sooner next year so that we can plan ahead of time? (Or have it all weekends)
