If you’re hoping to snag tickets for a coveted event at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, ten today is the day for reservations. To secure a spot at special culinary events and experiences, call (407) WDW-FEST (407-939-3378
Admission to Epcot is required for many of the events.
Foodies will love the First Bites Opening Reception on Sept. 29, a sneak peek at the food, beverages and entertainment for the festival.
You can also look forward to sugary Sundays – Sweet Sundays in the mornings with a bounteous buffet, sparkling wines and notable chefs showing off signature desserts (like Cake Boss Buddy Valastro’s tiramisu on Oct. 9), and The Discovery of Chocolate on select Sunday afternoons with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate with paired wines. Or, if you prefer your sweets at the end of the day, check out the “3D” Disney’s Dessert Discovery, lots of sweets with IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth as the finale.
Fantastic cheese seminars, Sunday afternoon wine schools, special eats at the Italy, France and Mexico Pavilions, and over-the-top dinners hosted in Disney resort hotels, it’s a frenzy of delicious food and drink. Paring down is the hard part.
Of course there are plenty of complimentary events too, like this year’s HGTV Home Entertaining Seminars on weekends at the festival center. You will be sipping and strolling your way around World Showcase at Epcot – go early on a weekday if you want to sidestep the crowds.
The festival runs Sept. 30-Nov. 13.
