The 28th Annual 2023 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Dates: July 27 to November 18, 2023


Epcot International Food and Wine Festival


EPCOT FOOD AND WINE OVERVIEW

2023 was the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival's 28th year. While your EPCOT admission is all that's needed to participate in this popular event, it's important to know that guests must not only have valid theme park admission, but also a theme park reservation in the Disney Park Pass reservation system in order to enter the theme park.

25 Global Marketplaces were featured in 2023 with returning favorites such as The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India, and Spain. There were four new Global Marketplaces in 2023 commemorating the Disney100 celebration: Char & Chop, Wine & Wedge, Bubbles & Brine and Swirled Showcase.

The Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue Medicare returned in 2023 with internationally recognized artists as well as local bands offering fun tunes on the America Gardens Theatre stage.

The Festival Welcome Center typically features a Wine Shop where guests can purchase their favorite selections as well as other event souvenirs.

More than 25 global marketplaces featuring food, wine, and beer are at the Festival. The appetizer-sized portions typically range in price from $4.00 – $8.00 and provide the perfect opportunity to try traditional cuisine from around the world.

Additional tables are placed throughout the park where guests can stop and enjoy festival dishes.

The International Food and Wine Festival plays host to seminars, tasting events, and delicious meals overseen by top Disney Chefs as well as renowned guest Chefs.


EPCOT FOOD AND WINE HIGHLIGHTS

  • Global Marketplaces featuring fan-favorite dishes will be returning throughout the park in July, with more marketplaces opening in the fall.
  • Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt will return in 2023. Kids of all ages can search for 15 little Remy statuettes with maps and stickers available for purchase at Port of Entry, Pin Central, and World Traveler at International Gateway. Completed maps can be shown at Disney Traders to choose a prize for your efforts, courtesy of Chef Remy, of course.
  • Emile’s Fromage Montage will once again invite guests to sample a variety of delicious cheese dishes that are served in inventive ways. Purchase any 5 cheese dishes from select Global Marketplaces listed in the Festival Passport and collect a stamp for each purchased dish. Once you’ve collected all 5 stamps, bring the stamped Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips for a specialty prize unique to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
  • Tip: Purchase a Food & Wine Festival [Disney] gift card to pay your way around the Festival. It's much easier than trying to dig for cash or credit cards as you go from location to location. These cards can also be used at select Disney destinations nationwide. For a complete list of participating locations or terms and conditions, please visit DisneyGiftCard.com.
