The food and wine festival is not just about food and wine it is also about beer. With all joke aside, it is about diversity and a way to combine all ethnicities into one, so we can all see what the world really is outside of the United States.
From September 14th – November 14th Epcot park guests are able to enjoy the Food and Wine Festival. This special event takes place from park open to close. This is included in a normal park ticket, but the food, wine and beer are an extra charge.
Along with this guests can also enjoy the Eat to the Beat Concert Series with special guests performance from bands including Hanson, Boys II Men, and Plain White T’s, free of charge. Performances are set to take place each night of the event at the America Gardens Theatre in the World Showcase. All ages are welcome.
For an extra charge park guests can also receive demonstrations from chef’s such as Jamie Deen, Cat Cora, and Sarah Fioroni. These demonstrations range from having breakfast with a guest speaker, sampling international cheeses, or learning the history and the process towards aging and fermentation in barrels. Other courses offered include Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It where attendees can learn how to make unique cocktails and sweet treats that pair with the drinks well. The price of these demonstrations range depending on the skill set and presenters.
Throughout the park resort and hotels guests are able to experience the Food and Wine Festival from the resort itself. Places like Disney’s Grand Floridian, Disney’s Yacht Club Resort,
and Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort: Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto are offering unique and entertaining experiences specific to the theme and quality of the hotels themselves.
