    Fran from RI Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Will there be special lunches at this year's Food/Wine Festival? We have attended in the past and enjoyed special lunches at France, Italy, and Mexico. Also, will there be food and wine demonstrations? I realize that there are additional costs.

    Hi Fran! 

    I love the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival! I visit Walt Disney World every November to attend this event. I enjoy trying the new foods at the outdoor kitchens around the World Showcase. My personal favorite is the Warm Raclette Swiss Cheese with Baby Potatoes, Cornichons and Baguette at The Alps near the Germany Pavillion. My daughter loves the Braised Beef Poutine at the Refreshment Port. This year, you can use your Festival Passport to find Emile’s Fromage Montage menu items from select global marketplaces and then receive a stamp with each purchase on the list. Once you receive five stamps, you can bring your Festival Passport to the Shimmering Sips marketplace to get a special reward.

    In regards to special lunches, you may be referring to the Eat to the Beat Dining Package that you can book for lunch or dinner with select restaurants. Not only can you enjoy eating at a wonderful EPCOT restaurant, but you can also have guaranteed seating at one of the Eat to the Beat Concert series shows! performers have been announced for the Eat to the Beat Concert series! I am so excited to see amazing performers, such as 98°, Hoobastank, and Billy Ocean! Of course, there are definitely special foods offered at the Global Marketplaces that you can enjoy. At the current time, demonstrations have not been announced for the festival.  However, you can check the Disney Parks Blog to see if any demos will be announced for the time you are visiting.

    When you are there, make sure to check out some of the amazing merchandise! You can get commemorative food and wine shirts, cooking utensils, and more!

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
