If you are traveling to Epcot Aug. 31 – Nov. 13 , 2017, you will get the chance to check out the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This free event (with regular admission price ticket) gives you the chance to have some specials experiences that aren’t available other times of the year.
Here is what you can expect at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival:
- 35 Unique Food & Beverage Kiosks
- Food Demonstrations & Cooking Seminars
- Celebrity chef book signings and demonstrations
- Cooking Classes (additional cost)
- Specialty Tasting Events (additional cost)
- Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt for kids (additional purchase required)
- FREE “Eat to the Beat” Concerts
This is a great opportunity to taste some pretty amazing dishes that are otherwise not available at the park. What I like is that they are small portions and reasonably priced, so you can feel free to try many different types of food.
Not only will you find main dishes, but some pretty yummy desserts! If you are on the Disney Dining Plan, you’ll be glad to know that many of the samples are a snack credit! This is one of the best ways to spend those snack credits at Epcot!
There are even beverage samples! I love going to Germany where you can find samples of beer and wine.
If you are overwhelmed by all of the food and beverage options and don’t know where to go for what, Epcot has a handy Epcot International Food and Wine Passport. It is free and available at all Food Kiosks.
Inside the Passport you will find a list of all Kiosk locations and what types of food or beverage you will find there. You can check off what you try and even get your passport stamped at the Kiosk that you go to.
Have a Disney Chase Visa Card? You are in luck. Epcot has a special Chase Visa Card Lounge that can only be accessed by card holders. Inside this special area to relax in American Adventure building, you will find free beverage stations, TVs, Video Games and a place to charge your cell phones!
