    Hello Sonia,

    Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival debuted it culinary popularity in the Fall of 1996 and has continued to grow.

    Each year Guests are introduced to a uniquely,special designed Epcot Food & Wine Festival graphic, guest chefs, world-wide wineries, international food and wine booths displayed around World Showcase, culinary/beverage/mixology seminars, special dining experiences, entertainment from guest bands and bigger and better culinary creations which keep us all coming back for more.

Meet the Panelist: Amy, Virginia

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
