    Is there a pass we can purchase for food and wine or do we purchase everything separately?

    Hi Carrie,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    I believe that you are asking about the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which occurs this year at Epcot from September 14 through November 14. This is one of my family's favorite festivals to visit, with international food and beverage to sample, fabulous entertainment, and great seminars and demonstrations. In order to enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, you will need to have admission to Epcot. There are some parts of the festival that are included with admission, such as the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, or checking out the Festival Center. Other events, such as mixology seminars, culinary demonstrations, and special dinners do require separate reservations. In the past there have not been packages. This is nice as you are able to customize the events that are right for you by selecting and paying for them separately. I suggest that you monitor the link for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival above, as well as the Disney Parks Blog, for information on when you can start to make these reservations.

    If you instead are asking about purchasing a Disney Dining Plan for your vacation, I suggest that you take a look at the Disney Dining Plan website to choose a plan that is right for you.

    I hope that this answers your question, Carrie! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
