    Hello, Do I need separate tickets for the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival? I have a hopper park pass already?

    Hi Donna ~

    The 2017 Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing and it is a must do for Guests like me that like to eat a lot of great food!

    The Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival is included with your theme park admission and you will not need a separate ticket to enter Epcot. However, some events or seminars may require a special ticket or advanced reservation. For example, the Wine & Cheese Pairing Seminars, Culinary Demonstrations, and Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It! are some of the events that require a reservation and an additional cost.

    If you want to just walk around and eat, all you need is a valid theme park admission ticket. I find it super helpful to purchase a Food & Wine Gift Card. That way, I can go cash free and I'm in and out of the kiosks fast.

    Be sure to check out the line-up for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series during your visit. This concert series is held at the America Gardens Theatre stage and is included in your Epcot admission. Shows are held at 5:30 p.m., 6:45 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. Seating is first-come, first-served so plan to arrive early to kick back and enjoy the show.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
