    When does Disney announce dates for upcoming food and wine festival? How far in advance will they know? Planning a trip for October 2018

    Hi Tony! October is a great month to visit Walt Disney World. The weather is turning to be quite nice with the humidity lower and temperatures cooling off just a bit. And of course the great Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is in full swing.

    The dates for this year's festival are August 31-November 13. It is starting pretty early this year and continuing into November so it will be giving guests many weeks to enjoy the foods and drinks from around the world as well as entertainment brought in just for the Festival. October will be a great month to experience it all. If you can consider purchasing a ticket for the fun Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party which is held in the Magic Kingdom on various days of the week. It is a fun time and the special night time parade is one of my favorites.

    Enjoy your visit this fall!
