Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2016
September 2, 2016
One of our favorite Walt Disney World festivals is almost here and we would like to share a bit about this amazing event with you. The annual Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival is taking place September 14th-November 14th. Unlike other events, like Mickey’s No-So-Scary Halloween Party for example, the Food and Wine Festival is included with your regular admission. So all you need to do is visit Epcot during the festival dates to experience the event, and to purchase typical foods and drinks from all around the world.
Here’s how it works: All the countries within the World Showcase at Epcot will offer small plates featuring local foods and drinks from that country. There are also other countries being featured in a kiosk style. The fact that the portions are small, gives guests the opportunity to try delicious dishes from all over the world. The dishes vary from $4-$12 each and if you plan to share them with a friend you can try even more options!
You can get a beer flight from Germany with four beer samples, have pot-stickers in China, have wine in France, and even indulge in amazing desserts in Italy. The event also includes concerts on select nights as part of the Eat to the Beat Concert Series that you can read more about here.
So what are you waiting for? Come eat and drink around the world with us this fall! We hope to see you soon at the Hawthorn Suites Lake Buena Vista! Bonus: We offer complimentary shuttles to the Disney parks, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer without having to worry about driving back to the hotel! We will see you soon!
