You know, I had a feeling that after last year, the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival would be starting in July from now on. And, turns out, my hunch was 100% correct.
For 2021, the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival will kick off on July 15. (Which is 10 days after the end of the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival.) The Festival will end on November 20. (And will then quickly turn around for the EPCOT Festival of the Holidays….honestly, we’re just going to have festivals almost every single day of the year now, it would seem.)
Returning for the 2021 version of the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, of course, are the Global Marketplace food booths. Many favorites will be back for the 2021 season, including Canada, Greece, Germany, Hops and Barley, Appleseed Orchard and more. Plus, additional marketplaces may pop up as the festival continues.
Back again will be Emile’s Fromage Montage. Here Guests can sample a variety of delicious cheeses served in inventive ways. If you purchase any 5 cheese dishes from select Global Marketplaces listed in the Festival Passport and collect a stamp for each purchased dish, you can bring the stamped Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips for a specialty prize unique to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Also fun for the entire family will be Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak. This scavenger hunt will have Guests in search of Remy statuettes hidden all over the park. Guests will need to purchase a map and stickers from select Festival merchandise locations – Port of Entry, Mouse Gear, and World Traveler (located at International Gateway). As Guests locate Remy hidden throughout World Showcase and the Global Marketplaces, you’ll need to match the ingredient stickers to your map. Once you’ve found them all, bring your completed map to Disney Traders and choose a surprise!
Live music from favorite performers will return, including the JAMMin’ Chefs at the Canada Mill Stage, Mariachi Cobre at the America Gardens Theatre, and Voices of Liberty at the America Gardens Theatre.
And yes, there will be lots of great merchandise that available, including a spirit jersey, baseball cap and so much more.
All of this is just the start! The full plate of activities will be shared soon and we’ll have them for you on the blog!
