    Do I need to purchase tickets for Epcot Food & Wine Festival?

    Hi there, Thomas!

    I'm so excited it's time once again to sip, savor and stroll through the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! From July 15 - November 20, 2021, Guests will be able to enjoy sweet and savory specialties throughout the park, enjoy live entertainment, and more! 

    As Epcot marks the 26th year of the popular Food & Wine Festival, Guests can taste their way around the world at over 30 Global Marketplaces, some of which are brand new this year. While some kiosks will not open until October 1 in conjunction with The World's Most Magical Celebration celebrating Walt Disney World's 50th Anniversary, over 20 of the booths will be open beginning July 15! I can't wait to sample all the delectable dishes on the Global Marketplace menus, and I'm especially looking forward to stopping by my favorite booth in Canada to enjoy Canadian Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Soup and "Le Cellier" Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle-Butter Sauce - YUM! After October 1, you'll find me at Lobster Landing, sampling New England Lobster Tail with Lobster Bisque Sauce with a Cape Codder (Vodka with Cranberry, Pomegranate, and Lime) to wash it down.

    Guests will also get to experience live entertainment throughout the festival, with performances by the JAMMin' Chefs in Canada, Mariachi Cobre and Voices of Liberty on the America Gardens Theatre stage, and local bands from across Central Florida at America Gardens Bandstand. 

    All of the Food & Wine Festival fun is included with your valid theme park admission, and you will not need a separate ticket to attend. Please note that you WILL need Disney Park Pass reservations for Epcot on any days you'd like to attend.

    I hope this helps as you make plans to attend the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival this year!
