Foodies, mark your calendars! This year you’ll have four months to explore the 2021 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival! From July 15 through November 20, you can feast your way through the Global Marketplaces around World Showcase and across six continents.
“Dine on delectable dishes at delightful marketplaces, including returning favorites like Canada, Greece, Germany and Appleseed Orchard,” offers Disney. “Discover a cornucopia of cultures, cuisines and innovative cooking techniques from chefs worldwide. This food aficionado’s paradise is replete with delicious dishes, fine wine, craft beer, spirits and other beverages sure to satisfy every palate.”
In addition to the outdoor kitchens and unique food dishes at the marketplaces, Disney has announced just a few of the special activities being planned for the festival. Guests can:
• Sample all sorts of delicious cheeses served in fun ways as part of Emile’s Fromage Montage – if you collect a stamp from five different Global Marketplaces, you’ll earn a prize!
• Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will send you on a savory scavenger hunt in search of Remy statuettes hidden all over the park.
• Take a tasty souvenir home from the new merchandise collections, including a festival collection featuring a spirit jersey, baseball cap and so much more.
• Listen to musical favorites performed by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and the Jammin’ Chefs.
Disney promises to release “a full plate of details” soon, but at least now you have the dates! More information will also be available at TasteEPCOT.com.
