Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival – More Marketplace Snack and Beverages
Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival is a lot of fun and a great way for a “foodie” to spend the day sampling and enjoying good food and drinks. However, all of this grazing can be expensive. Prices for these snacks range from around $3 to $9. Add beer or wine to the mix, and this can get expensive! Try buying a “Tasting Sampler” which will give you a voucher for 8 food or beverage items of your choice.
The Tasting Samplers includes:
- A “credential,” or voucher, for 8 food or beverage items of your choice at over 35 Global Marketplace locations (certain exclusions may apply and will be listed on voucher)
- Limited-release Epcot International Food & Wine Festival trading pin
If you are a “foodie” like me you may want to sample a few must-try items in advance. My family & I use the Food and Wine Passport to make a list of the things we want to try and which global marketplaces where we can find that food. We usually leave a little room for new foods, but it helps all of us plan which foods we don’t want to miss. With 35 booths to celebrate Epcot’s 35th anniversary, planning is more important than ever!
Be sure to check the Eat to the Beat concert series, calendar of demonstrations and chef appearances as well. You never know who might be coming to town while you’re visiting or what new skills you can learn at a cooking demo!
New for Epcot Food and Wine Festival 2017 are these delicious debuts :
- Avocados of Mexico
- Cheese – Hosted by Boursin
- Beer (in the former Segway room of Innoventions)
- Flavored by Fire
- Active Eats
All of these marketplaces take credit and debit cards, but it’s easy to use MagicBands if we are all staying on Disney grounds. Another option is to purchase an official festival gift card for the day. These mini-sized gift cards include a wearable plastic band so that you can swipe and go! Set your limit, and these gift cards keep you on a budget. They also make a fun souvenir and let you enjoy all the food and drinks you want until reach the end. The “Tasting Sampler” will give you a voucher for 8 food or beverage items of your choice.
Enjoy all the wonderful food samplings at Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival!!
