The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is underway, and it will run until November 20. It’s sponsored by CORKSICLE. There are plenty of things to love about this year’s festival. Here are some of the highlights.
You can try the flavors of six continents at this year’s Food & Wine Festival. That’s a lot of choices! Keep in mind that some of them will not open until October 1. I guess that will give you a reason to visit twice. Try the Fried Falafel Pita from Tangierine Cafe. It’s my favorite dish that I’ve had so far.
There are four different collections for merchandise this year. They are Epcot International Food & Wine Logo, Belle Be Our Guest, Remy Shake Things Up, Apple Orchard, and Figment Passholder Collection. There is plenty of great merchandise for sale! These are booths along World Showcase, but you will also find plenty of items in the other stores. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, just move on to the next place.
The entertainment hasn’t really changed since the Flower & Garden Festival. You’ll find JAMMin’ Chefs in Canada, and Mariachi Cobre and Voices of Liberty rotating in the America Gardens Theater. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays local acts perform as part of America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare. As the mother of a musician, I’d like to thank Disney for allowing local talent to shine.
Remy and Emile
Remy and his brother both have activities for the festival this year. Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt returns to drive me crazy once again. Purchase a map, find Remy over and over again, and then turn the map in for a prize. Currently it’s your choice of one of four bowls, but we were warned that Disney thinks they’ll run out. There will then be a different prize. With Emile’s Fromage Montage, you’ll purchase five different cheese-heavy dishes, and then receive a sixth dish for free.
The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival runs through November 20. That’s over four months away, but it will be here before we know it! The festival is included with your Epcot admission. Make sure you pick up a Passport when you enter, because it will make it much easier to navigate all that is going on.
