Everyone Wants Food and Wine To Have An All-You-Can-Eat Option. It Actually Already Exists.

We LOVE the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, but, well, we have a big problem with it.

Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin

Not only do you have to pay for a park ticket just to get INTO the festival, but you also have to pay extra for all the food you eat. There isn’t an all-you-can-eat option, which, honestly, is a bit of a letdown. However, did you know there is ANOTHER Food and Wine festival in Disney World that WILL let you eat EVERYTHING you want to for just the price of a ticket? Well, we’re going to tell you all about it.

That festival is the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic. This festival, which will be held on November 10th-11th, 2023, offers up food and wine from Swan and Dolphin’s MANY restaurants, and you can eat it all (and even go back for seconds) for the single price of a festival ticket.

Food and Wine Classic Price And What That Includes

So here’s how this festival works. You’ll have to purchase a ticket to attend. The ticket is $185, which gives you access to all the food booths, as well as the Beer Garden. That includes all the food and drinks available at the festival.

Discounted tickets are often available if you also book a stay at the Swan and Dolphin for the weekend, but you’ll need to call the hotel directly to inquire about that and to make a reservation.

You’ll receive a wristband when you arrive and then a map/guide to all of the food booths. There are plenty of signs to point you in the right direction if you start feeling a little lost.

So what’s it like? Well, you can go to any food booth you want, and try whatever food or drinks are available at that booth. If you find something you like? You can get more of it. You can eat and drink as much as you want without any additional cost to you.

Additional Paid Options

However, if you do want to spend a little more money, you can also buy additional tickets for seminars, like pasta making, wine tastings, and more. These seminars cost anywhere from $75 to $110.

There is also a Grand Tasting experience for $425 that is led by a Master Sommelier and includes a Champagne reception, three flights of elite wines, and Chef’s Table menu pairings from the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Executive Chef. You can also sign up for a VIP Champagne and Dessert Party for $150.

Our Best Tips For the Food and Wine Classic

If you do plan on attending the Food and Wine Classic, we always recommend preparing in advance. That means checking out menus (and we’ll make sure you know those ahead of time) and picking out the items that are a priority for you. You can fill up easily at an all-you-can-eat festival, so keep that in mind.

You’ll also want to bring your appetite because there IS so much to eat and you’ll want to try as much as you possibly can. The more you eat, the more value you get from the price of your ticket, right? So don’t load up on a heavy meal the day you attend the festival.

Be sure to bring an appetite

So if you’re looking for a Food and Wine Festival that could be a better bargain than the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, you should consider checking out the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic. Tickets for the 2023 event are on sale now, so be sure to check that out.

In the meantime, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on everything about this year’s Food and Wine Classic, including posting those food booth menus as soon as they’re available. So be sure to stay tuned to DFB for more.
