    Hi Moms! We are traveling to Disney at the beginning of November and are planning on getting 4 day park passes- one park each day- will our pass get us into Epcot during their Wine and Food festival or do we need a separate one day ticket just for them?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Desiree! Oh, the Epcot Wine and Food Festival! My family and I book our Disney trips around this very event because we love it so much!

    There are no separate admission tickets needed for the festival, other than admission to Epcot as usual, because the event takes place throughout the entire Epcot World Showcase. So, plan to enjoy the Food and Wine Festival on the day that you visit Epcot! There are many beverage seminars and cooking demonstrations that do require tickets, but if you don't plan to participate in those, no separate admission tickets required to eat your way around the world! Besides the countries that are always represented at Epcot, there will also be extra stands of even more countries, and they each offer a few food and drink options from their culture. We like to pick up the Food and Wine Festival passports at one of the country's food kiosks and have it stamped in each country we sample food or drinks. The kids love saying they've eaten in Japan, Norway, Italy, and Greece all in one day!

    Speaking of kids, the last two years we've been there, the Food and Wine Festival has offered Remy's Ratatouille Hide and Squeak Hunt. We purchased a map of the festival area, which features spots to put stickers when we find Remy hiding as he finds his special ingredients. It keeps them busy and excited and adds a little bit of extra magic to our day. Plus, they get a pin at the end when they complete the hunt! My kids each chose a different pin of Remy with a pepper and Remy with a tomato, and they're hoping to get new ones this year when we go.

    Have so much fun planning this tasty trip, Desiree!
