    What is the best way to pay for food items at the Food and Wine Expo in Epcot?

    Hey there, Belinda! 

    During my last trip to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, I added money to a gift card. This allowed me to stay on budget, as tasting those international cuisines can add up quickly. However, every food and drink location accepts cash and debit/credit cards. 

    I waited until I got to Epcot to add money to an adorable, Food and Wine Festival mini gift card or you can bring along any Disney gift card that you would like. The mini gift cards can be found throughout Epcot, but I purchased mine inside of the Festival Center. This little gift card was easy to keep up with and easily fit in my pocket or around my wrist. If you add $200 to a gift card, you'll get a carrying sleeve and lanyard, but you only need $15 to be added to a gift card to activate it. 

    Belinda, be sure to pick up a Festival Passport, to use as your guide throughout the global marketplace. 

    Enjoy your journey through Epcot and all of the delicious foods from around the world. If you have more questions, come back and visit with us again!
