    We are going to Epcot Fri Oct 24 and that's the only day we're doing DW. What is the best way to get tickets and do we need anything extra for the food and wine festival? Do we need magic bands?

    Hi Genevieve!

    I highly recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time so you don't waste any of that food tasting time standing in line for tickets.  You can purchase them directly through the Walt Disney World website or at your local AAA office if you are a member.  

    Admission to Epcot includes the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.  The only thing you'll need is money to purchase those delicious samples from around the world and an appetite!  There is a special Epcot International Food and Wine Festival gift card that you can pre-load at any of the gift shops and wear around your wrist so it makes it simple and quick to use at each International Marketplace (the food stands).

    You do not need MagicBands for admission or if you plan on using FastPass+.  All you will need are your admission tickets.  If you decide you would like MagicBands, they can be purchased in Mouse Gears gift shop.

    Have a magical day!
