What to Expect at the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

What to Expect at the 2016 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival #itallstartedwithamouse

September 14th – November 14th, 2016

Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is an annual event held at Epcot. This year, there are over 30 different booths set up in both World Showcase and Future World! Also during this time at Epcot, there are culinary demonstrations, mixology, beverage, and cheese seminars, and several premium events that Disney will be hosting. Located in the Festival Center will be the popular Back to Basics Seminars that are free with park admission. These seminars feature special culinary professionals sharing tips and tricks with guests to help turn standard meals into fantastic ones! Another favorite of Food and Wine is the Eat to the Beat concert series which is held in the evenings in the American Adventure Pavilion at the America Gardens Theater.

There are quite a few new booths this year joining the line-up of old favorites. New to Food and Wine this year includes: THE CHEW Collective, Chocolate Studio, Greenhouse Guru hosted by Village Farms, Islands of the Caribbean, and Wine and Dine Studio.

The cost for most dishes are in the $3 – $8 range; with many of these being available for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit. The cost for wine is $2.50 – $4.75, beer $3 – $5, and mixed drinks $7 – $9. 

Another popular event returning to Food and Wine this year is Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak. This scavenger hunt takes you around to various locations throughout Epcot where you help Remy gather the ingredients needed for his recipe. In order to do this you need a map and stickers. You place the corresponding sticker on each location on the map to represent the ingredients. You can purchase the map and stickers for $7.95 at these locations: Disney Traders, Festival Center, Pin Central, Port of Entry, and World Traveler. Once you have completed your map, you may return it to the redemption location at Port of Entry to pick up your surprise – one of 6 special edition Ratatouille pins.

Festival merchandise is available in the Festival Center which is located in the Wonders of Life Pavilion in Future World East (between Mission: SPACE and Universe of Energy). Merchandise includes special edition Dooney and Burke bags, t-shirts, hats, pins, and much more! Be sure to grab a festival map and a Marketplace Discovery Passport while you are at the Festival Center! The Passport will include menus for all booths and feature a place to get a stamp from each booth!
