    Need confirmation, Pixie Dust include entrance to Food and Wine Festival entrance? Able to apply the food discounts too?

    Hi Marian,

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm thrilled to hear you're hoping to experience the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival before it ends on November 18th. I've enjoyed the incredible variety of Global Marketplace food and beverage offerings a few times since the festival kicked off in July, and I can promise you won't want to miss a morsel.

    I believe you might be referring to the Disney Pixie Dust Pass, an Annual Pass for Florida Residents that allows visits most weekdays, subject to blockout dates and availability. If so, you'll be glad to know you'll have access to the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival with your Annual Pass, as long as you plan to visit according to the blockout calendar and have a valid theme park reservation if you'll be arriving before 2 p.m. At the time of my writing, it appears that reservations are still available for EPCOT Tuesday, November 7th through Friday, November 10, as well as next week from Tuesday, November 13th through Friday, November 16th. If you'd like to experience the festival you'd need to visit on one of these days. There is no additional admission purchase required to for the festival if you already have an Annual Pass or theme park tickets.

    Once you've finalized your schedule I'd like to recommend a few of my favorite food items you might want to try.  I loved the Griddled Cheese with Pistachios and Honey, one of the many Emile’s Fromage Montage offerings from the Greece Marketplace, as well as the Pickle Fries with Dill Ranch from The Fry Basket. My all-time favorite item is the SPAM Sushi from the Hawaii Marketplace. So delicious! If you're looking to wash down that food with a tasty beverage the Pickle Milkshake from Brew-Wing Lab at the Odyssey is a bold option, or you can go for one of the more than 40 domestic and international wine selections available across the festival.

    I also really loved the Fig and Balsamic Boursin Soufflé with Fig Tapenade from Wine & Wedge, and the good news is this Marketplace will also be available through December 30th as part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays so you'll have more time to enjoy the tasty menu selections. I'm looking forward to sampling a few more items from this Marketplace when I visit next week.

    In my experience, the festival menu items are excluded from Annual Passholder Discounts, but you can review the current list of discounts to see which Table Service Restaurants participate. There is some Passholder-exclusive festival merchandise available as well, which may be subject to discount. I'd recommend reviewing availability and inquiring about discounted items when you arrive. 

    I hope this was helpful Marian. If we can offer any additional questions please come back and let us know.

    Wishing you a delicious and delightful visit!
