Disney Parks Blog has released a few new details for the 2021 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Unfortunately, the menus aren’t part of the announcement. We do know who the sponsor will be. It will be CORKSICLE, and at Shimmering Sips you’ll be able to purchase an exclusive CORKSICLE beverage container.
The announcement named a few of the Global Marketplaces. Besides Shimmering Sips, we now know that Australia, Canada, Germany, Greece, and Hawai’i will all be represented. Here’s hoping that the Greek Nachos will return to Greece, that’s one of my favorite Food & Wine Festival dishes. The American Adventure and Morocco will host brand new booths this year.
Some of us were hoping that the Eat to the Beat Concert Series would return, but it doesn’t look like it. Voices of Liberty and Mariachi Cobre will continue to perform in the America Gardens Theater. Fridays through Mondays we can also enjoy America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare. While I’ll miss Eat to the Beat, I love that Walt Disney World continues to support local artists. There is some amazing talent in the Orlando area.
Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will return to bring me more frustrations (I find this the hardest of the scavenger hunts). Emile’s Fromage Montage will return as well. You’ll buy select items, have your Passport stamped, and then receive another item for free.
This year the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will be the longest ever. It will begin on July 15, and run until November 20. It is included with your Epcot admission. You can learn more information here.
