Sojourney Travel’s foodie clients love EPCOT’s festivals, but the festivals are about more than just food. There’s fun for the whole family!
This summer, Guests can embark on a tasty tour across six continents at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE® at Walt Disney World Resort. This delicious celebration, which kicks off July 15 and runs through Nov. 20, features a full menu of new flavors and sips along with live entertainment, family activities and more. That’s 129 days of fun for the entire family!
Global Marketplaces will serve up a host of international flavors, including fan-favorite dishes from Hawai’i, Australia, Germany, Canada and Greece, as well as new spicy, savory and sweet plates to please Guests’ palate. We’ll have more details on specific menu items in an upcoming Foodie Guide, but there are new Global Marketplace concepts coming to Morocco, The American Adventure and throughout the park in July, with even more marketplaces opening in the fall.
CORKCICLE is the presenting sponsor for this year’s festival, and Guests can visit Shimmering Sips Global Marketplace and four other locations during the event to discover several sparkling beverage options available for purchase in an exclusive keepsake CORKCICLE premium beverage container.
Guests can also commemorate their visit and bring the culinary magic home with other official event merchandise created just for the festival, including apparel, home décor, trading pins and more.
Popular entertainment is back too, with performances by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and Jammin’ Chefs. The festival will also open with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.
For families, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will send kids of all ages on a savory scavenger hunt around the festival. Another way for families to have fun together is by participating in Emile’s Fromage Montage. Guests will find new ways to experience cheese when they purchase five participating dishes from select Global Marketplaces, including a passionfruit cheesecake with toasted macadamia nuts. Collect five stamps and scurry over to Shimmering Sips for a prize!
The festival is available with valid theme park admission and a park reservation for the same date. Keep checking back for more details. Contact your Sojourney Travel Advisor to book your Walt Disney World vacation today!
