    Can food and wine festival gift cards be purchased for Guests prior to trip? I Wanted to surprise my family with these

    Get your stretchy pants ready, Tony! Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival is the best time of year to try new foods and work in your old favorites alongside new cocktails, desserts and more!

    Your family will love it, too! While there are no official Food and Wine Festival Gift Cards, what you could do is purchase Disney Gift Cards.  All Disney owned and operated restaurants and food carts will accept them, and the last time I was at the Walt Disney World Resort festival, I never visited a cart that didn’t… and I tried tons of small plates (my mouth is watering just thinking about it!).

    If you and your family are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can also use Disney Gift cards to pay off or pay down your folio balance each night.  If you happen to charge your Festival activities and Meals to your MagicBand, this is another way to credit those charges. I like to purchase my Disney Gift Cards from places like Target or my local clubhouse store.  You can also find character cards on the Disney Gift Card website.

    I wish you a tasty vacation, and hope your family really enjoys the surprise! ~Lindsey P.
