Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival is back! The festival runs from September 25, 2015- November 16, 2015. This year Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival is celebrating its 20th year anniversary!
This year Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival is similar to years past; designed to provide wine pairings to try so that people can learn how to create the best combinations that allow them to enjoy food with wine to its maximum potential, and this year they even made it better. They expanded it into Tomorrow Land and added a cheese pairing. The cost is $97.00, which is the park admission fee.
Market Places are set up throughout the World Showcase, as you walk around the lake you walk through each country. You can stop at whatever Market Places sound good to you. Tasting the countries food and wine. Here’s a list of the Countries and the Food & Wine that will be sold in each Market Place.
There are some “experiences” that are going on throughout the day and are open to anyone with a ticket.
