The EPCOT Food & Wine Festival has developed a huge reputation!

EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

Many guests plan their Disney trips around this popular festival to try all of the tasty bites, unique sips, and really fun beats!

The EPCOT Food & Wine Festival is an annual celebration of global cuisine in Disney World.

EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

Recognized as the Original Disney Food Festival, the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival began in 1995 with 25 Marketplaces situated around World Showcase. Featuring incredible special events, informative culinary and beverage demonstrations, celebrity chefs, and delicious Marketplace Food Booths around the park, this annual event is a can’t miss part of the Disney calendar!

The Noodle Exchange

The success of the event is undeniable. Now a destination for food lovers from all over the world, the Festival expanded to a record 131 days in 2020, followed closely by 129 days in 2021 and 2022. In addition to the Marketplace Booths situated around World Showcase (and now stretching into World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature — the three neighborhoods that now make up the area previously known as Future World), the Festival also includes many special events at all different price points — some are even free!

Brew-Wing Cider Flight

Enjoy the Eat to the Beat Concert Series nightly, featuring musical acts from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and beyond. Culinary Demonstrations and Wine and Beverage Seminars are some of the Festival’s most popular events, and are an affordable and enjoyable way to learn in a hands-on environment, when available. Grand tasting events such as Party for the Senses turn the Food and Wine Festival into an indulgent experience, and we look forward to the return of these Special Events in coming years.

Eat to the Beat

To experience the Food and Wine Festival, guests will need to have valid admission and a park pass reservation to EPCOT. Guests wanting to eat or drink at the booths will need to pay for those items individually, but a separate event ticket is not required.

It’s time for the 2022 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival!
