    When is the food and wine festival?

    Hi there, Christine!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney to discuss one of my favorite topics, EPCOT festivals! The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is always one of the highlights of the year for my family. Last year we began (what I hope will become) an annual tradition of spending an adults-only weekend enjoying the festival’s offerings with some dear friends. By staying at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn we were able to conveniently walk to and from the International Gateway entrance of EPCOT at our leisure and even cool down with an evening dip in our Disney Resort hotel pool before heading to enjoy the nightlife of Disney’s BoardWalk after the theme park closed for the day. In my opinion, this is the best way to maximize your festival experience!

    Disney Parks Blog announced just last month (to the delight of foodies everywhere) that the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival would be returning to EPCOT in 2024 from August 29 to November 23. The article also previewed a few of the Global Marketplace and merchandise offerings, so it’s definitely worth checking out! Additionally, the article mentions the return of one of my favorite activities, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt. My husband and I love engaging in a bit of (mostly) friendly competition as we search for Remy around the World Showcase. My tip: raise the stakes a bit by allowing the person who finds Remy to choose the dish or drink you’ll try from that country. 

    Since you’re planning to attend the International Food & Wine Festival, you’ll also want to keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for additional announcements (such as the lineup for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series) as the festival approaches because, as the stars of Rock ’n Roller Coaster say, ‘you don’t wanna miss a thing’!

    I hope this information was helpful, Christine! Feel free to stop back by with any additional questions that arise as you plan. I’m always happy to help!
