Looking for fantastic food and beverage options at the 20th Annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival? Make sure to check out all of the new desserts as well as Premium Offerings. This year’s event is their biggest and best yet.
The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is one of my favorite activities at Epcot. I love visiting Walt Disney World in the fall without my kids for this reason. They get a little antsy walking around Epcot. So if I head to the festival sans children, I can enjoy myself without feeling guilty.
This year’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival features more than 250 chefs from around the world, including 26 states and six countries. The event has grown so large that it now lasts nearly 2 months, versus the mere 30 days it ran when it opened in 1996. Enjoy music and concerts as you explore unique flavors. From demonstrations and seminars to tasting and pairings, you can taste your way through Epcot in a way that only Disney knows how to delight your senses.
