What is Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival?

The Epcot Food and Wine Festival is an event held every fall here at Walt Disney World. The festival includes food booths, special events, chef demos, and live concerts! It’s a highly attended event and you should be prepared for a very crowded Epcot especially on the weekends when the locals tend to flood in.

Food Booths at Epcot Food and Wine

In 2022, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival features 29 different food booths scattered across World Showcase and Future World at Epcot. Watch out for the descriptions below because 5 of them don’t open until August 15.

The booths specialize in cuisine from different locations around the world. Stroll across 6 continents and beyond as you sample mouthwatering delicacies. Dine on delectable dishes at delightful marketplaces, including returning favorites like Canada, Greece, Germany, and Appleseed Orchard.

This food aficionado’s paradise is replete with delicious dishes, fine wine, craft beer, spirits, and other beverages sure to satisfy every palate. Each booth offers up local selections from that country. Each menu item is small, think tapas, or a mini appetizer. The items range in price from $4.00 – $8.00 and drinks range from $3 – $6.

The food booths at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival open at 11 am.

No-Cost Seminars

Note so far this event is not happening for 2022

If you are looking to attend one of the talks be prepared to arrive early. These seminars have been trickier to get into in recent years. With the locals flooding in and taking up all the seats, Disney had to make some changes to level out the playing fields. So now most seminars are offered at an upcharge.

If you are looking to attend one of these free seminars be sure to check the daily time’s guide.

Low-Cost Culinary Demonstrations at Food and Wine

Note so far this event is not happening for 2022

At $19 a person plus tax for these seminars you just can’t go wrong! Since these are paid you can expect that your samples are going to be much better than the freebies. You may want to consider one of these instead of sampling out at the booths, often times it’s a better value.

The schedule of the culinary demos, and advance booking info can be found on Disney’s  Food & Wine Festival Culinary Demos page.

Final Thoughts on Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival

If you like food or drinking you are bound to enjoy this event. My husband and I look forward to attending this event each year. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon and to try out new food and catch a free concert.

On the other hand, this event brings in loads of people and causes Epcot to be a non-stop packed house for the duration of the festival. Watch out for the weekends, when the locals drop in and make everything extra packed.
