    Hi, September 19-22 what time does the Food and Wine Festival start daily? Thank you

    Hi Rebecca,

    I eagerly await the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival every year for the food in the Global Marketplaces around the World Showcase, the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, the culinary demonstrations, special events and more. Schedules have not yet been released, but generally, the Global Marketplaces open at 11 a.m., the same time as the World Showcase, and remain open until the park closes.

    The Festival Center, site of the demonstrations, wine store and specialty merchandise sales, usually opens earlier, around 10 a.m.

    To celebrate Epcot's 35th anniversary, the Food & Wine Festival will have 35 marketplaces this year, more than ever before, and it will be almost two weeks longer than last year, stretching from August 31 to November 13. I'm excited about the addition of food from Spain and India.

    The Disney Parks Blog had a preview earlier this month that, pardon the pun, whet my appetite for more details. I'm keeping an eye on the blog for more information. Schedules usually are released in early summer.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rebecca. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you plan your fall visit. Enjoy!
