    We are planning a trip for Food and Wine Fest 2017. How far in advance can we make dining reservations? Does ESPN Club take reservations for watching a football game?

    Hi Jeffery,

    The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is my favorite special event at Walt Disney World. How great that your vacation will coincide with this year's festival!

    For dining beyond the Global Marketplaces of the festival, you can make your advanced dining reservations now. Reservations are accepted 180 days in advance.

    Unfortunately, the ESPN Club at the Boardwalk resort does not take reservations on football weekends, and it's a popular location. You often will find guests arriving early to secure a spot. If you can't get a table there, you should be able to find the big game at a host of other lounges and restaurants. Crew's Cup Lounge at the Yacht Club resort is one of our go-to spots. Or check out Big River Grille & Brewing Works, also at Boardwalk. 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let us know if we can help with other dining or planning questions as your vacation nears. Enjoy!
