    Need dats of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival for 2019 at Walt Disney World Orlando FL. We need these dates so we can book our hotel on property (Walt Disney World). Also looking for any on property hotel special rates during time.

    Hi, Stephen! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for stopping by with your question. The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is THE place to be each fall! I do not blame you one bit for wanting to get a jump on plans for this foodie extravaganza. The dates for this year's festival have not yet been announced, but I expect them to be similar to previous years' dates. While we do not know for sure when those fun Global Marketplaces will open or when we will be able to Eat to the Beat, my guess is that it will run from the end of August through the first week (maybe plus a few more days) in November. If you can position your travel dates somewhere in that time frame, I think you (and your appetite) will be happy! Do keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they are sure to announce any and all plans for this guest favorite festival.

    There are usually some great Special Offers during the fall season. These offers tend to start appearing in late spring or early summer. However, this is subject to change, so keep an eye also on the Special Offers page for a practically perfect deal that will cover your desired travel dates. You are welcome to go ahead and book your stay if there is a specific resort that you prefer. When Special Offers are announced, you can go into My Plans in My Disney Experience and try to modify your reservation to include the offer. Please keep in mind that not all resorts are usually included and eligible dates will be limited.

    I hope this information helps you start planning your delicious fall in Epcot! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
