The 25th Annual 2020 Epcot International
Food and Wine Festival

Epcot Food & Wine Festival Information
Epcot's Food and Wine Festival

EPCOT FOOD AND WINE OVERVIEW

2020 is the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival's 25th year and it will be slightly different than past years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The modified Festival, named "A Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival," began on July 15th and will run through November 22, 2020. While your Epcot admission is all that's needed to participate in this popular event, it's important to know that guests must not only have valid theme park admission, but also a theme park reservation in the new Disney Park Pass reservation system in order to enter the theme park.

Disney has announced that there will be 20 signature global marketplaces such as Hawaii, Hops & Barley, and Islands of the Caribbean, and they will be spaced out around the theme park.

Additionally, Disney has announced that they'll be sprinkling in the "floral fun" of the Flower & Garden Festival with the global goodies of the Food & Wine Festival. Guests will be able to see the Remy topiary in the France pavilion along with special Flower & Garden merchandise. Scavenger hunt fans will be glad to hear that Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt will return. Later on, after the Festival begins, Food & Wine merchandise will be added in.

The musical acts during the “Eat to the Beat Concert Series” are so popular and "often pack the house" but in an effort to accommodate proper physical distancing, these concerts will not take place this year. Guests will be able to enjoy music at the America Gardens Theatre with local EPCOT entertainment such as Mariachi Cobre, the JAMMitors, and more. These performances will be spread throughout the day in order to give audiences more options to enjoy them.


The Festival Welcome Center typically features a Wine Shop where guests can purchase their favorite selections as well as other event souvenirs.

There are typically more than 30 global marketplaces featuring food, wine, and beer at the Festival, however for the 2020 event, there will only be 20. The appetizer-sized portions typically range in price from $4.00 – $8.00 and provide the perfect opportunity to try traditional cuisine from around the world.

Additional tables will be in place throughout the park where guests can stop and remove their face coverings to enjoy festival dishes while maintaining physical distancing.

The International Food and Wine Festival plays host to seminars, tasting events, and delicious meals overseen by top Disney Chefs as well as renowned guest Chefs.

2020 EPCOT FOOD AND WINE HIGHTLIGHTS

  • There are 20 Global Marketplaces featured in 2020 along with other stops for bites and sips!
  • Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt will return for 2020.

Completed maps can be shown at Disney Traders to choose a prize for your efforts, courtesy of Chef Remy, of course.

  • Tip: Purchase a Food & Wine Festival [Disney] gift card to pay your way around the Festival. It's much easier than trying to dig for cash or credit cards as you go from location to location. With a $250 activation, you’ll receive a specially themed lanyard and carrying sleeve (pictured above). These cards can also be used at select Disney destinations nationwide.
