Epcot Food and Wine Festival 2013 dates have been announced! The Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival will return to the Walt Disney World® Resort from Sept. 27 – Nov. 11, 2013.
Every fall starting in September and running through mid-November Epcot transforms into a food and wine lovers dream destination at the annual Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Take culinary a tour across six continents and through nearly thirty international marketplaces. At each marketplace place you can sample tapas-sized servings of regional specialties along with regional beers and wines.
Be sure to stop at the Terra Marketplace, offering a variety of vegan specialties for the first time in the history of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. I also recommend stopping by the Belgium Marketplace and grabbing a Belgian waffle with berry compote and whipped cream, and it goes perfectly with Godiva Chocolate Liqueur iced coffee. Now that’s what I call a perfect midday snack!
While your eating your way around the world, take some time to enjoy the various Food and Wine Festival experiences that are included with your park admission. Check out the festival center wine shop for daily wine samplings and don’t forget the specialty shopping that is set up along the World Showcase. Take in the seminars, book signings, and meet and greets with some of biggest names in the food and wine industry. For an additional fee you can take part in additional seminars and demonstrations, as well as other premium events and experiences.
Not only does the Epcot Food and Wine Festival provide you with a culinary tour around the world, but it also provides you with nightly entertainment with the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. Each night at 5:30, 6:45, and 8:00pm you can enjoy a varied line up of Pop, swing, R&B, classic rock, and soul icons.
