    What are the hours that the booths for the food and wine festival are open? Are they open when the park opens?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Louise! 

    I can't believe it's already time for the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival! You'll find many longtime favorite food items like the Canadian Cheddar and Bacon Soup and new ones, too, like the Pickle Milkshake at Brew-Wing. Regardless of where you start and end your culinary journey, you'll enjoy sampling a bit of what our beautiful world has to offer. 

    While the food booths, also known as global marketplaces, do not open when EPCOT opens, they do just in time for lunch. So, usually around 11 a.m., and sometimes a few minutes before if you're lucky, the global marketplaces come to life. 

    What I love about the festival's global marketplaces is that you can feast on their delights until the park closes. However, if those special ingredients run out, you'll find that some booths will close a bit earlier in the day. So, if there's something that you really want to try, don't wait too late! 

    AN EXTRA GEM: Not only are there global marketplaces, but many of the theme park's year-round dining locations/kiosks serve special snacks and drinks for the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Some of these spots include Refreshment Port and Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Company (the drinks they concoct always surprise even this non-coffee-drinking mama).

    Louise, if you have any other questions about your upcoming trip, please ask us here at planDisney. I hope that you have the BEST time! Bon appétit!

    Magic always,
