The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is the biggest annual festival at Walt Disney World, and the dates have just been announced for guests to enjoy the food, wine, music, and more.
The 2023 edition of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE will run July 27 through November 18, for a total of 115 days.
The Food and Wine
This year, guests will be able to sip and savor at more than 25 Global Marketplaces throughout EPCOT, including returning favorites such as The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India, and Spain.
Several new Global Marketplaces will also open later during the festival as summer turns to fall, bringing seasonal flavors.
Menus haven’t been announced yet, but when they are, we’ll bring them to you.
The popular Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue Medicare at America Gardens Theatre will return, bringing great musical acts to EPCOT.
As soon as we have a list of performers, we’ll let you know, but if you’re wondering, here is the line-up from 2022. Do you have any festival favorites you hope return? Let us know in the comments.
Fans of cheese can take part in Emile’s Fromage Montage, a fun way to try tasty cheese dishes from around the world. Grab your Festival Passport and purchase any five cheese dishes listed in the back of the Festival Passport to collect a stamp. Once you’ve collected five stamps, head to Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE to redeem a sweet treat unique to the festival.
I don’t know about you, but I love doing these food walks at the festivals…you get rewarded for eating your way through the park. What’s not to like?
Families can also embark on the returning Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak – a “Ratatouille”-inspired adventure that’s très magnifique! Guests of all ages can search for Remy throughout World Showcase and the Global Marketplaces.
And to celebrate the Halloween season everyone can partake in Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, a special pumpkin scavenger hunt from September 29 through October 31.
All this and more makes for a can’t miss event. Who is visiting Walt Disney World for the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival this year? Let us know in the comments.
