Today is the day you can begin to book events for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! With that, Disney has released information on two brand new special events that have been added to the roster– the Epcot Food and Wine Festival – Late Nights LIVE! street party and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Premium Package.
The Epcot Food and Wine Festival Premium Package is available for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort (or at the Swan or Dolphin) from 12:00 noon until 8:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday from September 22 through November 6. The package will cost $199, plus tax (plus Epcot admission will be required). It will include an in-room gift with wine (for those who are 21 and older); a festival wine glass; truffles; and a special Epcot International Food & Wine Festival MagicBand plus a $50 Disney Gift Card!
Guests will also receive credentials for the “Premium Package Areas” which will give them access to 10 VIP areas situated around the World Showcase Promenade where guests will be able to order items from select Marketplaces and have them actually delivered to you! (Which is nice because some of those Marketplaces, those lines can be extremely long!) In addition, guests will be able to bring marketplace treats from other booths into the Premium Package Areas and just relax. Also included in this Premium Package will be one admission to Epcot Food & Wine Festival – Late Nights LIVE!
Speaking of Epcot Food and Wine Festival – Late Nights LIVE!, this street party will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays during the festival, from 9:45 p.m. – 1:00 a.m. The event will include six tastes (food and beverages) from select marketplaces (Greece, Hawaii and Desserts & Champagne will be constants, while the three will change throughout the festival), live music, a DJ, and other additional entertainment offerings. The street party will be located between the United Kingdom Pavilion and World Showcase Plaza. The cost of this event is $79, plus tax for those who are not taking part in the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Premium Event. As a nice bonus, admission to Epcot will not be required, if entering the park after 9:00 p.m. If a guest wants to enter prior to 9:00 p.m., then Epcot admission is required.
To book either of these events (or any of the events that went on sale today), call 407-939-1889.
