    Hi guys, any idea when all the food and wine details will be announced? Got all excited when I followed the links and saw Sugar Ray and Boyz II Men, but then realised that was last years list...coming 9/28-10/19.

    Hello, Catherine!

    Thanks for sending in another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My family are big fans of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival -- we often plan our vacation dates to coincide with this event as well as Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in Magic Kingdom Park. You will actually be arriving the day after the 18th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is set to begin -- talk about excellent timing! This year's Festival runs from September 27 to November 11. 

    In addition to the outstanding Festival Marketplaces offering sweet and savory small plates, desserts and specialty beverages, there's fabulous live entertainment courtesy of the rockin' Eat to the Beat concert series. I'm happy to tell you that both Sugar Ray (October 7-9) and Boyz II Men (October 21-23) are slated to return this year! New to the America Gardens Theatre stage will be the Go-Go's, Spin Doctors, Edwin McCain, The Manhattan Transfer and Christopher Cross. You can find a complete list of performers by visiting the independent website

    Be sure to visit for more details on all the Food & Wine Festival programs and to make reservations for select events. Reservations for premium events can be made starting August 13 by calling 407-WDW-FEST (407-939-3378). These special Festival experiences are quite popular and do carry an additional fee. The highlight for many Guests is the Party for the Senses, a grand tasting experience held on select Saturday nights. 

    Wishing you happy planning and a magical holiday at Walt Disney World Resort!
