    Vacation planned during the International Food & Wine Festival. Is the passport available this year and what is the cost?

    Hi Vickie!

    So glad to see you’ve come back to planDisney with another question! The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival might just be my favorite EPCOT Festival, but really, it’s so hard to choose!

    I believe you are referring to the Festival Passport, which is available at most Global Marketplaces. You can grab one of these passports and use it to view the menus and locations of the Global Marketplaces throughout EPCOT. This Festival Passport is complimentary and includes a guide to Emile’s Fromage Montage. Emile’s Fromage Montage “challenges” you to purchase five featured dishes from select Marketplaces to earn stamps. Once you’ve collected five stamps, bring your Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips Marketplace hosted by CORKCICLE for a specialty item! The great thing about Emile’s Fromage Montage is that you don’t need to complete it in one visit. If you have more than one EPCOT visit planned, you can take your time to earn the stamps. 

    Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak is a scavenger hunt to find Remy throughout the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. You can purchase the Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak map at select festival merchandise locations. The price for the map has not been announced yet. Once you find them all, return your completed map to Creations Shop, Disney Traders, or World Traveler at International Gateway for a special surprise! In the past, you could choose to receive your prize immediately after purchasing your map, however, this may change in the future. 

    You could also purchase a mini EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival gift card that comes attached to a wristband. This is a Disney Gift Card that can be loaded and reloaded with money and used at most merchandise and food locations at Walt Disney World Resort. The wristband is especially convenient at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival because you won’t need to dig through a wallet or bag when buying food at the Global Marketplaces! 

    If you haven’t seen, the Global Marketplace menus have recently been released, and on Disney Parks Blog some of the merchandise for the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival has been revealed! Don’t forget to check out the lineup for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series to see who will be performing during your visit. Last year, I fulfilled my lifelong dream of seeing Hanson perform, and of course, it was so much better because I was in EPCOT! 

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Vickie. I’ll be here at planDisney if you have any other planning questions. As our friend Remy says, “If you are what you eat, then I only want to eat the good stuff.”
