Bunsen and Beaker Concoct New Disney PhotoPass Magic Shot for 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival

Bunsen and Beaker have momentarily stepped away from their concoctions at the Brew-Wing Lab at the Odyssey Pavilion to take part in a 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival-themed Magic Shot at EPCOT. The Magic Shot is available through Disney PhotoPass at EPCOT from now through November 18, the final day of this year’s EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.

The official Disney PhotoPass Instagram account debuted the new photo opportunity in a post on Saturday morning.

The photo places guests behind an EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival-branded white desk and next to Bunsen and Beaker. Scientific concoctions appear on the desk alongside items currently being served at the Brew-Wing Lab; the infamous pickle milkshake, of course, is present.

The Odyssey Events Pavilion serves as the scenic backdrop of the shot. The pavilion was present at EPCOT Center on opening day in 1982, initially housing the Odyssey Restaurant. The restaurant closed in 1994 and the structure has been used intermittently since; it’s now often used during festivals at EPCOT, currently housing the Brew-Wing Lab.

Magic Shots are available exclusively through Disney PhotoPass and place guests in settings or alongside characters not easy to replicate in the real world. They’re typically introduced for holidays and events (such as festivals) but have been utilized for other purposes with increasing recent frequency; for example, two “Ahsoka”-inspired Magic Shots debuted at Stars Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World last month.

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker are leading the experiment that is the Brew-Wing Lab at the Odyssey, one of the marketplaces at the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. The booth contains several different culinary takes on the chicken wing, ranging from traditional Buffalo-style wings served with celery and ranch (though true traditional Buffalo wings are served with blue cheese) to unique offerings like the “Peanut Butter and Jelly Sticky Wings.” The Brew-Wing Lab also serves an array of beverages including the Pickle Milkshake; you can read our review of the items at Brew-Wing Lab here.

Bunsen and Beaker appear at the Brew-Wing lab in the form of informative and instructive videos telling guests about the lab’s offerings.

There are a total of 32 booths participating in the 2023 International Food & Wine Festival, with three new Global Marketplaces — Char & Chop, Bubbles & Brine, and Wine & Wedge — opening on September 22. The festival runs from July 27 through November 18, 2023.
