    We are going to Epcot the first day of the Food and Wine Festival this year. We recently found out about the sampler pass and I was wondering if that is something we could get ahead of time thru our reservation or if the only way to get it is at the park?

    Hi Ruth!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy to hear that you are planning to enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival this year! It is my favorite special event at Walt Disney World Resort and I think you will love the food, drinks and special events throughout the theme park. The Tasting Sampler is a great way to enjoy lots of sample many of the food and drink options in the Global Marketplaces around World Showcase. This year, it can be purchased when you visit the theme park by visiting one of the following locations:
    • The Festival Center
    • Bridge Kiosk East
    • Bridge Kiosk West
    • Japan Festival Boutique
    • Morocco Festival Boutique
    • Canada Festival Emporium
    To get the most value for your money, you will want to be sure to use your Tasting Sampler vouchers for the more expensive food and drinks. My favorite options that help make the Tasting Sampler worth our money is the “Le Cellier” Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle-Butter Sauce from Canada and the La Passion Martini Slush from France!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
