The EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival takes place this year from July 27 to November 18, presenting guests with a culinary tour across six continents with cuisine from around the world. From Global Marketplaces (full menus here) and new merch to nightly live entertainment, there’s so much for guests of all ages to enjoy.
New this year, The Muppets are going to be making an appearance at the Brew-Wing Lab inside The Odyssey building at EPCOT!
Don your lab coats and prepare to experiment with delicious flavors as Brew-Wing Lab at the Odyssey invites guests on a flavorful adventure, featuring the culinary creations – and madcap mishaps – of Muppet Labs!
That’s right – Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his faithful assistant, Beaker, of Muppet Labs will welcome you to their taste-testing headquarters, where the inventive duo are busy creating scientific snacks and mind-blowing beverages. You’ll have a chance to sample some of their kooky concoctions like the Unnecessarily Spicy, Yet Extremely Tasty Scotch Bonnet Pepper-Curry Wings, or the Pickle Milkshake. Consider it a flavor experiment in the name of science!Disney Parks Blog
25 Global Marketplaces will be featured this year with returning favorites such as The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India, and Spain. There will be four new Global Marketplaces in 2023 commemorating the Disney100 celebration: Char & Chop, Wine & Wedge, Bubbles & Brine and Swirled Showcase.
Disney also shared a first look at some of the new merchandise that will be offered during the event; take a look at some of the pieces below. How cute are the coasters for a backyard BBQ?
Of course we’ve got a new Dooney and Bourke bag just for the occasion.
I’m a big fan of all the colorful Encanto merchandise, and these two pieces below are no exception. That apron is just adorable!
The Spirit Jersey track jacket below features Chef Mickey Mouse in his chef’s best.
Do you see anything so far that you’ll be adding to your collection?
