Emile’s Fromage Montage
Do you love cheese? Here is your chance to try cheese from around the world!
Emile’s Fromage Montage allows you to sample a variety of delicious cheeses served in inventive ways.
Purchase 5 cheese dishes from select Global Marketplaces and collect a stamp for each dish.
Once you’ve collected 5 stamps, bring the stamped Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips for a specialty prize unique to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival Passport
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.
2023 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Souvenirs
One of my favorite things about the festivals is that you can get unique souvenirs. This year at the Food & Wine Festival you will find colorful clothing and accessories featuring the EPCOT ball.
Bringing the Kids to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival?
For a small fee, they can purchase Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt maps at select merchandise locations in Epcot. Remy needs help with ingredients to make his signature dish, ratatouille.
Kids can search through the park to find 15 hidden Remy statuettes. Once completed, they can take their completed maps to Disney Traders at the entrance to World Showcase to choose a surprise, compliments of Chef Remy.
From Sept. 29 through Oct. 31, or while supplies last, Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit allows guests to search throughout EPCOT for hidden Disney character-themed decorative pumpkins.
Maps & stickers are available to be purchased inside the park.
At the end of the hunt, maps can be redeemed for a spooky festival keepsake.
