Epcot Food & Wine Festival

Written By:  Christine Hardenberger

Each fall, the countries of the World Showcase are joined by over 25 marketplace kiosks featuring food and wines from around the world.  What is going on?  The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is here!  This annual event transforms the World Showcase into an even more amazing international exchange.  It has become one of Disney’s most popular festivals!

The Epcot Food Wine Festival is a foodies paradise.  The usual restaurants are joined by kiosks where you can sample the food and wine of many different countries. Wander from country to country across six continents sampling as you go!

When you arrive at Epcot, visit the Festival Welcome Center to plan your day. There you’ll also find the Festival Wine Shop and the Wonders Bar—where you can purchase champagne and wine or attend official book signings with celebrity chefs and authors. The Stockpot shop offers marvelous merchandise, including the collectible marketplace cookbook.

When you have eaten and drunk to your heart’s content, you will find there is still more to enjoy at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. The “Eat to the Beat” concert series features celebrity musical acts performing nightly.  Previous years have featured such well-known performers as Sheena Easton, Starship,Kool and the Gang, Boyz II Men and David Cassidy just to name a very few. There are several acts performing each week and it’s all free with your Epcot admission.

The Epcot Food and Wine Festival offers something for everyone — food, drink, music and fun!  Join us for this amazing event September 30 – November 13, 2011. Contact Christine today to find out how you can save up to 40% off your resort room during the festival!
