    Are the booths for food and wine festival open during the extended hours nights?

    Hey Howdy Hey Chelsea and welcome back to planDisney!

    While any visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is Magical, visiting the parks with reduced crowds is a next-level Magical experience. If you can visit and experience the parks during Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, this is one of those unique experiences I highly recommend. Thank you for your question on the dining options available during these times. I will do my best to give you the latest information I have on what to expect. 

    I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experience Extended Evening Hours in EPCOT during the International Flower and Garden Festival. While the site does say select locations will be available for food and drink options, these locations are very limited. From my experience, none of the smaller locations throughout World Showcase were open and it was the larger locations closer to the park entrance that were such as Connections Eatery

    While we will wait to see what is officially available once the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival kicks off during these opportunities, I do have a piece of advice for you. If you do want to experience as much of the Food and Wine Festival as you can, I would recommend doing most of that during the day and evening hours. Weekdays are always easier to access than weekends as most locals will be visiting at these times. Save most of those experiences for the day and evening times and plan for attraction experiences during these 2 Magical hours of Extended Evening Hours. 

    I hope you enjoy your experience during Extended Evening Hours at EPCOT during your upcoming trip. Make sure to take advantage of all the attractions as well as photo opportunities as it may seem you have the park to yourself at times! Please let us know if you have any further questions, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
