    Hello! This will be my first time going to Epcot Food and Wine Festival. When do the menus and culinary experiences usually arrive on the website so that we can plan out a bit of our day or book certain tastings? Thank you for the help!!

    Hi Alison,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's great to hear you are planning to experience the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. It's one of my favorite Epcot events of the year. We've attended several of the Festivals over the years, and we always enjoy the food (of course!) as well as the opportunity to learn, taste, discover, savor, and smile our way all around Epcot. You're in for a few amazingly delicious days.

    While the details for tasting events, food kiosks, and seminars are not yet available, I'd encourage you to keep checking back — both on the Festival's page and on the Disney Parks Blog. From what I can see based on past years, I would think that more information would become available starting in the July time frame.

    Alison, you definitely have the right idea to want to plan out your Food & Wine Festival days. As with preparing outstanding dishes, the secret to a great Festival experience is all about mixing in just the right amounts. There is so much to take in that a proper blending of "must-do" items with ample amounts of spontaneous "hey let's try this" samplings makes for a genuinely fun time.

    One more suggestion I'll offer, Alison, is to be sure to give yourself time to take in all the World Showcase pavilions and Food & Wine Festival settings during the daytime as well as the evenings. The spaces and places and scenes are as visually appetizing as the foods are delicious, and you'll want to see them to fully experience them.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
