DATES ANNOUNCED! 2024 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

Food and Wine Festival 2024

Mark your calendars: The 2024 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE takes place at Walt Disney World Aug. 29 through Nov. 23!

As you may know, there’s always something to celebrate in the neighborhoods of EPCOT, from nature and discovery to culture and cuisine. And while the park has so much to offer every day, here are a few things you won’t want to miss at this year’s festival.

Global Marketplaces

Of course, it wouldn’t be the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival without the FOOD! Foodie fans can look forward to so many mouthwatering returning favorites.

Once again guests can indulge in Belgian Waffles with Berry Compote and Whipped Cream or Warm Chocolate Ganache at the Belgium Global Marketplace.

In Germany, say “guten tag” to Apple Strudel with Vanilla Sauce, while just over the mountain, The Alps will feature Dark Chocolate Fondue with Berries, Pound Cake, and Meringues.

Are guests looking for tropical flavors that will whisk them away to paradise? Passionfruit Cheesecake with Toasted Macadamia Nuts will breeze back in the Hawai’i Marketplace!

Say Roquefort! (Or Gruyere or Gouda if guests prefer.) That’s right – Emile’s Fromage Montage also returns in 2024. This fun food stroll encourages guests to sample a variety of delicious cheeses served in inventive ways. Guests can purchase any five cheese dishes from the official Global Marketplaces list in their Festival Passport and collect a stamp for each dish purchased. Once they’ve collected all five stamps, they can bring the passport to the specified location for a specialty unique item to enjoy!

That’s just an amuse bouche to excite guests for all the delectable flavors that are to come.

Crave-able Merch

Guests can take home a taste of the fun with magnificent merchandise that keeps the magic alive between visits, featuring beloved friends, like Remy from “Ratatouille” and Mickey Mouse.

And here’s a fun reveal: Everyone’s favorite purple dragon, Figment, will also be cooking up some fun this fall just in time for the festival. Want to see more? Here are a few more things we have up our chef coat sleeve, including fun drinkware from CORKCICLE.

CommuniCore Hall

As shared in a recent story, CommuniCore Hall will open on June 10 in the heart of World Celebration.

And, once the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival begins, the new space will add exciting fresh elements to the festival. Stay tuned for more!

Eat to the Beat Concert Series, Scavenger Hunts and More

As evening falls, chart-topping musical acts and Orlando’s top talent will take to the stage as part of the Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue. Performances will take place nightly in the America Gardens Theatre. Eat to the Beat Dining Packages will also return, ensuring guests can get seats for their favorite acts. We’ll have more details soon.

On the scavenger hunt front, guests can purchase a map (while supplies last) for Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak and search to find their favorite little chef hidden throughout World Showcase.

 There is so much to look forward to at the 2024 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival! Tell us, sill you be attending? What are you looking forward to most?
