EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival
The Walt Disney World puts up an all-time favorite event every year! The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival allows guests to take a grand tour around the world by sampling food and drinks from many different countries and regions that are called Global Marketplaces. The festival officially starts on July 14 and ends on November 19, 2022. Guests are invited to visit all 6 continents or “Global Marketplaces” to try their delicious menu items. Each marketplace sets up a special spot for the event and offer small-size food items that represent that region and can be paired with their corresponding beer, wine or sparkling beverage. Pairings are encouraged but feel free to indulge in whatever catches your eye. Global marketplaces open 11:00 AM to park close, unless otherwise noted.
Although there’s plenty of time to book your Disney tickets for this event, it’s better to start thinking about where you’ll stay when you visit Orlando.

Fun for the Kids:
This may seem like an event that would only please the adults but EPCOT isn’t just a fun affair for the grown-ups, the park also has several activities and exciting rides for kids of all ages.
This 4D attraction opens August 1st, and is based on the Disney and Pixar Film Ratatouille. Kids of all ages and of any height are welcomed.
This charming activity sends kids on a scavenger hunt, looking for statuettes of Remy all over the World Showcase. Purchase your map and stickers from Port of Entry, Creations Shop or World Traveler at International Gateway. Once kids find all Remys, bring the map to a Disney Trader or World Traveler at International Gateway for your Festival Keepsake.
