00-swan-dolphin-food-wine-classic

I’ve had the good fortune and the satisfied stomach of attending the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic 3 of the last 4 years. Each year I come away more impressed with the event and the opportunities guests enjoy to tase the best of local chefs and the global wine scene.

This is the sixth-annual Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic and it will once again be held over Halloween weekend – Friday, October 30, and Saturday, October 31.

All you need to attend is a Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic causeway ticket. It offers guests unlimited tastings at more than 40 stations featuring culinary selections from the hotel’s award-winning restaurants and wine from more than 30 wineries amidst a festive backdrop of live entertainment on the hotel’s scenic causeway. Upgraded ticket options allow guests to enjoy access to a beer garden featuring a wide selection of craft beers and Oktoberfest-inspired cuisine. The event also includes hands-on experiences with the hotel’s chefs and certified beverage experts in a variety of food and beverage seminars.

  • Advance-purchase, event-only tickets to enjoy unlimited tastings on the causeway are $105 per person
  • Upgraded tickets, including unlimited tastings on the causeway and access to the beer garden, are $125 per person
  • Beverage seminars are $45 per person, per class with the purchase of a causeway ticket
  • Pasta making, sushi and sake, and cheese seminars are $60 per person, per class with the purchase of a causeway ticket

I recommend taking at least one seminar (one each day is optimal).

You may not realize this, but the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is not the only must-attend event for foodies this fall. The culinary team at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel is already gearing up for the annual Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic. Get your plates and wine cups ready for two nights of outdoor food and fun on October 18 – 19.

Last year was my second year attending and it was bigger and better that the previous year. I left with a very fun stomach and a list of wines I knew I wanted to try again. The chefs and staff of the Swan and Dolphin’s best restaurants partner with their top vendors to make this an experience you’ll savor. Now that the classic is returning for its fourth year I urge you to attend and savor the flavor of culinary innovation along the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel’s lush causeway.
