Beginning September 25th and lasting until November 16th, 2015, there are 56 days of culinary possibilities.
For the very first time, the global marketplace experiences will expand into Future World. However, the majority of the offerings sit along World Showcase, where you can "eat and drink your way around the world." These small plates and sips from over 30 countries and specialties allow for sampling of sometimes exotic tastes that we might not otherwise be exposed to. Let me take you on a gourmand's tour:
American Adventure Coffee Cart
Block & Hans (spirits)
Cheese Studio - NEW
Chew Lab - NEW (Inspired by ABCs "The Chew")
Desserts & Champagne
Fife & Drum Tavern
Hops & Barley
Odyssey Coffee Cart
Refreshment Cool Post
Showcase Coffee Cart
Sustainable Chew - NEW (Inspired by ABCs "The Chew")
Test Track Coffee Cart
Wine Studio - NEW
And what to do whilst grazing and supping? Eat to the Beat, of course. In the beautiful outdoor America Gardens Theatre, you can enjoy some of your nostalgic favorites playing to the hungry crowds three times each evening. Over twenty acts, from Boyz II Men to Chaka Khan to Air Supply, will perform throughout the festival.
Not full yet? Not to worry. Special Dining Experiences are aplenty in 2015. Food & Beverage Pairings, Dining Adventures Around the World, Party For The Senses, Rockin' Burger Block Party, Eat to the Beat Dining Packages, Culinary Demonstrations, Mixology Seminars, and Dining with Celebrity Chefs are all available by calling 407-WDW-Fest starting July 30. 2015. (Or enlisting the assistance of your Disney Travel Agent!) Tables in Wonderland members, Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and Golden Oak Residents Can book these special events starting July 24th.
For the young and young at heart, the new Remy's Ratatouille Hide and Seek looks to be scrumptious fun. Remy statues hidden around World Showcase promise to lead one and all on a festival scavenger hunt; with maps, stickers, and prizes!
Lastly, my personal recommendation is to time your Epcot International Food & Wine Festival vacation when it overlaps with two other not-to-be-missed Walt Disney World Resort special events. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (September 15- November 1, 2015) and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (November 8- December 18, 2015) will add a side dish of magic and wonder to any stay.
