    Hi! We’re heading to the food and wine festival in a few weeks. What are your suggested must do events/eats/drinks associated with the festival? Also, is there a way to purchase the Chef Remy gift cards for the festival in advance of arrival? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Colbe!

    I hope you are ready for a delectable visit to the most magical place on earth. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is a guest favorite, and it’s easy to see why! There is so much to taste and enjoy during the festival, which is included with your theme park entrance, that guests have made this a must-do during the fall at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Everyone has their own personal favorites, but these are the items that have been getting the most buzz this yEAR. I’ve tried a few and I definitely give these Remy’s stamp of approval!

    At the top of my list is the Ireland Global Marketplace. The Guinness Baileys Shake was my festival favorite, and you don’t want to miss the Warm Chocolate Pudding with Irish Cream Liqueur Custard. My mouth is watering just typing this out! These are both sweet options, but I can’t think of a better place to kick off your culinary adventure with dessert! From Brazil, the flavorful seafood stew, Moqueca, is another amazing pick! At the Wine & Dine Studio, the Butternut Squash Ravioli was very good! And don’t miss the offerings at the cheese studio where the flavor combinations create a feast for your taste buds!

    The Chef Remy gift cards are only available for purchase at the festival, but if you like to have your vacation pre-paid before you arrive, I recommend purchasing Disney Gift Cards, good for pretty much anything Disney, which you can use to purchase the festival gift cards once you arrive.

    There are so many amazing things to try, but my space here is limited. I hope this list helps get you started. Be sure to check the complete list of offerings on the festival site. ~Emille
