    If I already have tickets and a park pass for Epcot do I also need to purchase a separate ticket to go to the wine and food festival ?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Scott! I'm so glad that you've come to ask about one of my favorite special events of the whole year at Walt Disney World Resort, the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. My perfect day at EPCOT involves strolling through the Global Marketplaces tasting dishes from around the world, which is why I'm so excited that a brand new version of the Festival is going to debut this year, and it'll be known as "A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!"

    Scott, I'm pleased to tell you that entry into the Festival is included with your Theme Park admission. At the moment, you also need a Disney Park Pass in order to enter the Theme Park but as long as you have one for EPCOT, as well as valid admission for the same day, you're good to go! The dishes from the Global Marketplaces are available for purchase for around the price of a snack, so make sure to save some of your food budget for your time there. My family and I are big fans of signature dining and usually make reservations every night when we're on vacation, but if we're traveling during Festival season at EPCOT we'll typically skip dinner a few nights so we can spend as much time as possible trying all the dishes around Future World and World Showcase. The food really is that good!

    I hope this answers your question, Scott, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
