New Global Marketplaces will open later on during the festival.

These activities are also returning:

  • Emile’s Fromage Montage, a fun way to try tasty cheese dishes from around the world. Grab your Festival Passport and purchase any five cheese dishes listed in the back of the Festival Passport to collect a stamp. Once you’ve collected five stamps, head to Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE to redeem a sweet treat unique to the festival. 
  • Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak – a “Ratatouille”-inspired adventure where guests of all ages can search for Remy throughout World Showcase and the Global Marketplaces. 
  • Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit: a special pumpkin scavenger hunt from September 29 through October 31. 

The festival will also welcome back the Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue Medicare at America Gardens Theatre. Exclusive limited edition and limited release EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival merchandise will be available.

EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is one of EPCOT’s rotating festivals, and perhaps their most popular – hence why it lasts for almost half the year. It began in 1995.

Guests can enjoy special limited-time food and beverage options from various booths (Global Marketplaces) around EPCOT, each one inspired by a different country or culture’s cuisine, or centered on a specific type of food (like The Fry Basket).

Check out our EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival 2022 guide for a look at last year’s festival. Many foods and experiences return each year.

Disney California Adventure hosts its own Food & Wine Festival in the spring each year.
