The backpack will be available on shopDisney and in EPCOT on July 27, the first day of the festival.

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).

The 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival runs from July 27 through November 18. There are a number of marketplaces, activities, and merchandise available during the festival. The Eat to the Beat Concert Series lineup has been announced. Eat to the Beat dining packages will go on sale on July 6.

Guests will also be able to enjoy these activities:

  • 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.
