I recently visited Germany Pavilion in Epcot searching for delicious treats from Karamell-Küche. This caramel kitchen is filled with delectable goodies made with Werther’s Original caramel. Instead of sweet treats, I was surprised to find the Disney Delivery Guy.

The 2016 International Food & Wine Festival returns to Epcot from September 14 through November 14, 2016.

Disney Parks Blog Unboxed – 2016 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Merchandise

Artwork for this year’s event merchandise was created by Disney Design Group. Drawing on the success of previous festivals, the team created new designs for popular merchandise programs such as “Brews Around the World,” and a character program featuring Figment.

Guests will also find new art for the “Taste Your Way Around the World” program that incorporates nods to the early days of Epcot. Disney Design Group artist Richard Terpstra incorporated vintage iconography and symbols from Epcot into several of his designs.

In addition to items shown in the video, we will have apparel, hats, drinkware, accessories, dinnerware, magnets and much more. Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will also return for another year.

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog in the coming weeks as I’ll share a first look inside the Festival Center at Epcot.


  • Hi. I really like the F&W Dooney and Bourke, specially the Letter Carrier. Do you know if they will be available on line for purchase? I will not be at F&W till the last weekend, by then all the merchandise is pretty much sold out. 🙁

  • Hi! Are they offering a chef vinylmation this year?? I collect them every year!

  • Dear Dooney & Bourke, I Love the size of this food and wine shopper tote. It’s the perfect size to carry everyday!! Please, please continue to make this size. The larger ones which I still love ( Runway Princess, Haunted Mansion, Dumbo) are just too big and too heavy to carry everyday! Also, famous movie scene bags would be AWESOME! Tangled, Little Mermaid, Lion King, Beauty & the Beast!! ❤️️Please & Thank you!! ?

  • Will there be a Food & Wine special edition Vinylmation this year?

    • @Brance – I’m sorry to report that there will not be a Vinylmation figure this year.

  • Steve, thanks so much for the Dooney update – the Food and Wine print is great! Please, tell the Dooney folks that we need more holiday patterns. The red, white and blue Americana print was perfect for July. We need one for Christmas…and Halloween…and Thanksgiving…and Valentine’s Day. ? Thanks!

  • Oh! I’m so excited! This is our first year as AP holders as well as our first year going to Food & Wine. You made it all look so wonderful! My daughter love Figment I would love to get her the Chef Figment plush and the Chef Mickey as well. Are they only in select stores? Also, how do I purchase the special AP pin and T shirt? THANK YOU so much! I can hardly wait for our trip.

  • Steven, thank you for the price for the Hide & Squeak pins. What are the prices for the other Food & Wine pins?

  • Hi Steve,

    We will be going to the Food &Wine the week of Oct 11. I was unable to get the pins and a few other items last year because we had arrived around the same time, and merchandise was sold out. Do you think that we will run into the same thing this year?
    I can order online if it is available to do so. I just want get to use my annual pass d/c.

    Thank you

    • @Janet – It’s difficult to say which items will be available (sadly my crystal ball is in the shop – ha!). I can say, however, that select items may be found via the Shop Disney Parks app, and Annual Passholders can use their discount for select purchases made via the app.

  • As usual, you’ve done a great job on showing me some more and interesting merchandise that I will have a good look at when I visit in November. Can’t wait to get a few things and top up my Disney collection. Thanks again for all your fun videos and information.

    • @Christine – Thank you for the comment. I hope you have a wonderful visit in November!

  • All 3 logos are great..will there be shirts with all of them available?

    • @Michael – Yes! You’ll find multiple shirts with the various logos.

  • Any chance there’s a deluxe print this year? Sure have missed them the last few years when they haven’t offered them.

    • @Jonathan – I saw two rolled posters at the Festival Center yesterday. One has Figment and one has the artwork on the left shown above. I’ll have another story with images coming soon.

  • Will there be any Duffy merchandise at the festival? Plush, Pin, Wine Glass, etc.

  • Where will I be able to pick up the passholder pin?

    • @John – I would try Pin Central in Future World.

    • @Mayra – There will be a wine glass by TERVIS this year.

  • How much will the pins be? And how many styles will there be?

    • @Elissa – Retails will vary for the pins. There is a limited release logo pin, a boxed set, a Passholder exclusive pin, and a few additional limited edition pins. Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will also return this year.

  • Is there a t-shirt for AP holders this year?

    • @Michael – There will be a Passholder t-shirt with Figment this year.

  • To Deric Pantry:
    “Another question, what is the price on the Pandora Chef Mickey? Will this be available on the Park app or only at the Food & Wine event.
    Thanks again”
    I see it on my Park shopping app. It’s $70, and they are running a “sale”. Buy 3 or more select PANDORA items and get 25% off…… 2 select PANDORA items, get 14% off.

    • @Irene – The Chef Mickey charm that you saw on Shop Disney Parks app is from 2015. The new dangle charm will be released at Epcot starting September 14. Additional locations may receive the charm later in the month.

  • Hi Steven,

    • @Samantha – There will be a Chef Mickey plush this year. I’d have to check about the runDisney event and Dooney & Bourke bags. I’m sure I’ll have an article about all the event items for that event in a few weeks.

  • Hello Steven,

    Any information on a magic band for the 2016 festival?

    • @Joni – We will not have a retail MagicBand for the event this year.

  • Hi Steven,

    Another great post. Do you know if there is going to be a 2016 Epcot Food and Wine magic band again this year?

  • Yay!! Thank goodness there is a satchel for this one! I really want the 45th anniversary bag but no satchel. 🙁 Glad they listened to feedback!

  • Another fabulous un-boxing video! Great job Steve! That Dooney print is super cute! Just take all my money now!

    • @Yael – Thank you for the kind words. I agree about the Dooney & Bourke artwork – it looks even better in person.

  • Is there a Passholder pin this year?

    • @Deanna – Yes! You can see an image of the hinged-pin around the :50 mark in the video. It’s found in the bottom right corner of the screen.

  • Thanks for the info Steven!! We’re looking forward to our visit in October:) How many different Figment items will be available? I know of a Passholder Figment T-shirt, the regular Figment T-shirt, 2 limited edition pins, the salt & pepper shakers, the oven mitt, and I assume the red item with Figgie is a magnet? Any other Figgie items to look for? Thanks again!!! We always enjoy your Parks Blog Unboxed entries:) Hope to see you at the Food & Wine Festival:)

    • @Jamie – There are a variety of fabrics used and some of the shirts are a soft material (at least that’s what I recall when I photographed the items and wore shirts in the video). Sizes will vary by design, usually ranging from small to 3-XL.

  • OMG I have to know, Is that a Figment Vinylmation under the shirt?

    • @Eric – There will not be a Figment Vinylmation figure in the assortment this year. Sorry 🙁

  • Will the Dooneys be sold only in Epcot, or also at Disney Springs? Will it be on the app?
