Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Update
Get ready to eat around the world when the 24th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival takes place Aug. 29-Nov. 23!
At 87 days, this is the longest foodie fest ever at Walt Disney World Resort theme park, and includes 30 Global Marketplaces around Future World and World Showcase. Disney released a couple of new dishes that you can discover including the Kenyan Coffee Barbecue Beef Tenderloin in the Africa Marketplace or the plant-based Cottage Pie at Earth Eats.
The “Disney du Jour Dance Party” will return in Future World and expand to seven days a week! Sundays through Thursdays, a DJ will spin plenty of interactive fun, while on Fridays and Saturdays stars from Radio Disney mix it up with live performances. The opening weekend will feature actress/singer Meg Donnelly from the Disney Channel original movie “Zombies."
Also returning are fun family activities including Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt and the popular Candy Sushi interactive experience.
The Eat to the Beat Concert Series also returns through Nov. 19 and includes 249 concerts in all! You can even guarantee your concert seats by booking an Eat to the Beat Dining Package for breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of many Epcot restaurants.
Some new acts are coming to the Eat to the Beat Concert Series including:
Sawyer Brown (“Thank God for You”)
Lauren Daigle (“You Say”)
