Walt Disney World announced that the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is set to begin on July 27th and continue through November 18, 2023.
There will be more than 25 Global Marketplaces throughout EPCOT, including returning favorites such as The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India, and Spain. Disney revealed that several new Global Marketplaces will open later during the festival as summer turns to fall.
The Festival includes activities for the whole family to enjoy:
- Fans of fromage can take part in Emile’s Fromage Montage, a fun way to try tasty cheese dishes from around the world. Grab your Festival Passport and purchase any five cheese dishes listed in the back of the Festival Passport to collect a stamp. Once you’ve collected five stamps, head to Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE to redeem a sweet treat unique to the festival.
- Families can embark on Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak – a “Ratatouille”-inspired adventure that’s très magnifique! Guests of all ages can search for Remy throughout World Showcase and the Global Marketplaces.
- And to celebrate the Halloween season, guests can grab their group and partake in Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, a special pumpkin scavenger hunt from September 29th through October 31st.
The festival will also welcome back the popular Eat to the Beat Concert Series at America Gardens Theatre.
