    Giselle from VA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Will the Food and Wine Festival Booths be open during Epcot After Hours on August 10?

    Why hello there Giselle and welcome back to planDisney!

    Like the much-awaited return of Giselle of Andalasia as she made an appearance at Princess Nite, it's so wonderful to have you back here after your last question a decade ago! I was recently able to experience EPCOT after dark and I'm absolutely happy to be able to let you know about your food options on your upcoming visit!

    At the present time, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival Outdoor Kitchens have been closing just prior to the EPCOT Forever fireworks as EPCOT closes to day guests; we expect that this will also be the case for the Global Marketplaces as the booths currently remain closed for the duration of Disney After Hours at EPCOT. While policies and offerings are subject to change without prior notice, I recommend keeping an eye out just in case but also taking advantage of being able to enter as early as 7:00 p.m. and utilize these hours ahead of the official event start time to make sure that you check out the food and experiences that won't be open later on in the evening.

    Along with the carts of beverages and snacks included with your admission to Disney After Hours at EPCOT, these are the other dining locations that will have food or beverage available to purchase:

    It's great that you'll be coming at a time when you'll be able to experience both the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival as well as Disney After Hours at EPCOT this summer - be sure to also take advantage of being able to ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind via the standby queue without the limitations of the Virtual Queue, just as long as you're not too full of snacks before you blast off in reverse. You're always welcome back here at planDisney Giselle, we hope to see more of your questions again soon

    Here's to enjoying some Food and Wine, as well as Amazing Adventures after closing time!
