ABC’s ‘The Chew’ Will Broadcast from 20th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival; Also Featured in Two First-Ever Future World Marketplaces

We all have a favorite host from ABC’s “The Chew” – superstars Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall and Daphne Oz each have a special way of sharing their culinary know-how on the Emmy-Award-winning lifestyle series. And for the first time in the show’s history, these dynamic hosts are leaving the Manhattan studio to tape shows October 7, 8, and 9 from the 20th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. The five festival episodes will air October 12-16.

Shows will be taped before a live audience, and we’re sure the hosts will be all over Walt Disney World Resort discovering remarkable dining finds, getting a taste of innovative, fun and healthful eats – the best the vacation kingdom has to offer.


Along with the taping of the show, “The Chew” will be featured in two marketplaces throughout the festival’s 53-day celebration from September 25-November 16, helping celebrate 20 delicious years. For the first time in the festival’s history, marketplaces will expand into Future World in the new Next Eats festival area with three delicious dishes from “The Chew” in their Sustainable Chew Marketplace: Savory Pork Spareribs with Cheesy Mascarpone Grits; Ricotta & Zucchini Ravioli with Tomato Sauce, and Vanilla Panna Cotta with Fresh Figs and Pistachio Brittle. (Herbs and veggies from The Land pavilion will flavor the marketplace dishes when harvested.) The eco-home-inspired marketplace will offer a chance for guests to learn more about how food is grown and the importance of sustainability.

Also in Next Eats, Disney chefs are collaborating with “The Chew” for the Chew Lab, a cutting-edge marketplace inspired by food-science labs and the hottest culinary tech trends.

“The Chew” airs on ABC Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. EST, noon CST. For updates on the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, visit throughout the summer.


  • Does anyone know when these tickets will be made available?

  • Carolyn
    The tickets are not sold out. They’re not available yet. The Chew website states. “Epcot tickets coming soon”.

  • All of the tickets say sold out how can that be? That is just ridiculous. Very disappointed. Yes if you are lucky enough to have tickets you probably need park admission to go

  • I too am terribly disappointed that tickets are sold out. I have been checking. but can’t stay on here waiting to see the post. Was it even posted when they went on sale or was it privately opened for purchases? We just moved to Florida and I LOVE The Chew and was sooooooo looking forward to getting to see it live. Is there any way that more seats can be made available? How were the tickets advertised and when? So very sad to be so close and now not be able to attend.

  • Very upset…was really looking forward to this and now I find out all the tickets are all gone! It would be nice if their was a way to put your name on a waiting list.

  • I was really looking forward to attending.

    I watched the episode when the team announced these special shows and checked the show’s ticketing page. There was no specific date announcement for tickets to be sold. I also searched Disney Parks Blog for SPECIFIC ticket release date.

    I’ve checked everyday since the announcement on the blog and the chew. I miss one day, 7/5. I discover this morning at 8 am on 7/6/15 that tickets are SOLD OUT.

    I am disappointed that NO ANNOUNCEMENT for a SPECIFIC was made.

    I would like a response why Disney nor ABC were not specific, do they expect Disney/ABC customers to look at their website 24/7?

  • Sounds interesting. Hoping to be down there in October. My first degree is in Food Science and I spent two years in product development. My husband was a chef for 20 years before changing careers and my dad has been a chef for more than 50 years and won a medal at the 2008 Culinary Olympics at age 65 and without an apprentice in the kitchen with him.

  • This will be truly amazing! Can’t wait.

  • Can’t wait for the tickets to be available as I have admired Michael Symon & Mario Batali’s culinary skills for many years!!!

  • I can’t wait for this! Will park admission be required to attend a taping?

  • Do you know when tickets will be made available?
