The Walt Disney World® Resort global dine-around – the 24th Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival – starts today and runs through Nov. 23, 2019 with irresistible bites, sips and non-stop family fun.
That’s 87 delicious days of Festival-exclusive edibles and entertainment, such as a Candy Sushi-making experience, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt, the rockin’ Eat to the Beat Concert Series and Disney du Jour Dance Party!
Opening week is set to thrill foodies at more than 30 global marketplaces, filled with eats like the warm raclette Swiss cheese debuting at The Alps Global Marketplace, a brand-new location for this year’s event.
Guests can follow their nose to the jerk-spiced chicken grilled on site for all to savor at the Islands of the Caribbean Global Marketplace.
And get ready for a taste of autumn at the Appleseed Orchard Global Marketplace near Le Cellier Steakhouse, where a chill vibe plus charcuterie and cheese nibbles pair well with fresh apple-enhanced libations plus fanciful flights with spice and kick.
You can toast the Festival kickoff with us at Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar, where mimosas will be served individually or as a flight for those who can’t choose between vibrant fruity flavors like key lime and blood orange.
Then you can bust some moves this opening weekend when Radio Disney ‘Next Big Thing’ artist alum Meg Donnelly (“With U,” Disney Channel’s “Zombies”) ratchets up the fun factor at the Disney du Jour Dance Party, Aug. 30 and 31 in Future World.
The Dance Party runs daily, with Disney Characters and Radio Disney artists appearing each Friday and Saturday.
More new artists will be announced this week, adding to the concert series’ smorgasbord of family fun!
You can make a date to groove with the Plain White T’s (“Hey There Delilah”) at the debut of this year’s Eat to the Beat Concert Series, Aug. 29-31.
Or, you can celebrate with new Festival act Sawyer Brown (“Thank God for You”) who’ll take the stage and round out Labor Day weekend of top tunes Sept. 1 and 2.
The outdoor concerts are included with theme park admission and located at America Gardens Theatre, running
Sundays to Thursdays at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m.;
Fridays and Saturdays 6:30, 7:45 and 9 p.m.
from Aug. 29 – Nov. 19.
There’s also still time to book an Eat to the Beat Dining Package at select Epcot table-service restaurants to secure guaranteed concert seating!
