    If you purchase tickets to an event at the International Food and Wine Festival, can you cancel and get a refund?

    Hi, Kerry!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is one of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort events!  At 87 days, this year's festival will be the longest in the history of the event.  I will be visiting twice during this year's festival, and I cannot wait!  Now that details about this year's festival are being announced, I have already started compiling my list of must-try snacks and beverages.

    In addition to sampling the cuisine at the many Global Marketplaces throughout Epcot and enjoying the music at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, guests attending the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival also have the opportunity to attend a variety of seminars and culinary demonstrations.  Many of these seminars and demonstrations require an additional fee beyond your admission to Epcot, and as spots for these events are limited, advanced reservations are suggested.

    I recently booked a reservation for my husband to attend a beverage seminar during our visit to this year's Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  When I made his reservation online, under Guest Policies it read, "There is a non-transferable and non-refundable cancellation policy.  Once booked, modifications are not permitted.  Guest must attend on date/time of the reservation.  Full payment will be retained."  I would recommend reserving your spot for any festival event you wish to attend as soon as possible since they do tend to fill quickly.  However, prior to making your reservations, please be sure that you can fully commit to attending the event as your payment is non-refundable.

    I hope you enjoy your visit to this year's Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  Bon Appetit!
