This year it seems like Disney is going to keep the celebration of festivals going non-stop! Just this morning news was released that the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will begin July 15th! That is just one week after the Flower and Garden Festival ends.
Not only does it start earlier than ever, but it runs through Nov. 20th! The festival will feature a full menu of new flavors and sips along with live entertainment, family activities and more. That’s 129 days of fun for the entire family!
Global Marketplaces will serve up a host of international flavors, including fan-favorite dishes from Hawai’i, Australia, Germany, Canada and Greece, as well as new spicy, savory and sweet plates to please your palate. There are also new Global Marketplace concepts coming to Morocco, The American Adventure and throughout the park in July, with even more marketplaces opening in the fall.
Popular entertainment is back too, with performances by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and Jammin’ Chefs. The festival will also open with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.
For families, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will send kids of all ages on a savory scavenger hunt around the festival. Another way for families to have fun together is by participating in Emile’s Fromage Montage. You’ll find new ways to experience cheese when you purchase five participating dishes from select Global Marketplaces, including a passionfruit cheesecake with toasted macadamia nuts. Collect five stamps and scurry over to Shimmering Sips for a prize!
The festival is available with valid theme park admission and a park reservation for the same date.
