The CHEAPEST Days To Attend the 2023 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

We may still be enjoying the Flower & Garden Festival, but that doesn’t mean we’re not ready for the 2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival!

Food and Wine Festival (2022)

Disney just revealed the dates for this year’s festJuly 27th to November 18th — and we’ve already started planning our visit. The Food & Wine festival is full of incredible entertainment, merchandise, and of course — food and drinks! It’s one of our favorites for a reason, but eating all that delicious food can put a serious dent in your budget. So, we’ve rounded up the cheapest days you can attend the Food & Wine Festival this year!

There will be more than 25 food booths at this year’s Festival, including some returning spots like The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India, and Spain. It seems Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE will be making a return, too. Disney has also indicated that some NEW Global Marketplaces (food booths) will open later in the festival as “summer turns to fall.” In other words, it sounds like not all of the food booths will open at once — instead, some will be delayed.

We’re going to be looking at single-day, one-park-per-day tickets to determine which are the least expensive days to go to the parks. EPCOT may cost more than other parks on the date of your visit, so those prices are reflected here. But, if you get a multi-day ticket or a park hopper, just know that the pricing will look different.

If you’re already planning your visit — we’ve got a look at the cheapest dates you can attend the 2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival! We’ll start off by saying that if your dates are wide open, late August and the month of September — the sweet spot between summer vacations and Halloween — are when you will usually find the least crowds and cheapest tickets (and hotel rooms). Now let’s take a look at the cheapest days each month of the fest.

The festival kicks off at the end of July, and if you want to see it all when it opens, the cheapest days you’ll find this month are the 27th and 28th, which both start at $134.


In August, tickets start at $109 on the 22nd through 25th and the 29th through the 31st.


You’ll find quite a few “cheap” days in September. The 5th through 7th, 12th through 14th, 19th through 21st, and 26th through 28th are all priced starting at $109.


We often see crowds start to creep back up around Halloween, and the ticket prices seem to reflect that for October. The cheapest days to visit EPCOT this month are the 1st, 2nd, 10th, 11th, 12th, 12th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, and 31st — but you’ll be paying at least $144.


This year’s festival ends on November 18th, so the cheapest dates you’ll find before that this month will run you $144. November 1st through 3rd, 6th through 9th, 14th through 16th all fall into the “cheap” category. Keep in mind that these prices are subject to change, as Disney could pull a switcheroo and change things up depending on what demand looks like.


We can’t wait to see what this year’s Food & Wine Festival has to offer, and we’ll be on the lookout for more announcements like returning food booths, merchandise, and entertainment. Be sure to stay tuned to DFB for the latest Disney news and more!
