Disney’s Food & Wine Festival 2021 – Dates Confirmed
Walt Disney World released this week their official dates for the 2021 Epcot Food & Wine Festival.
“Take a Taste Tour Across 6 Continents and More from July 15 to November 20, 2021”
For those of you who have never been, it’s an Orlando must-do! Not only do you get to enjoy food and drinks from 30 countries, much more than the 11 countries they have year round, but you get to do it wearing your favorite Mouse Ears in the happiest place on Earth. P.S. don’t forget a funny drinking / eating T-shirt! In addition to the extra food and drink offerings, they also have chefs from around the world teach classes and sign cookbooks for guests throughout the event plus extra activities for the kiddos.
Every year they create their EF&WF Center with event-exclusive merchandise and offer a variety of tasting and classes for guests to enjoy along with celebrity chef appearances. This is also where the Annual Passholders will find their exclusive Food & Wine AP magnet pick up location (!!!!). With every festival they add more and more entertainment, activities, and photo backdrops to keep us entertained year after year.
My absolute favorite way to end our adventure around the world is jamming out to their Eat to the Beat concert series each night! They have bands from all genres – old and new – perform 2-3 times each and every night during the festival. During this event, a select few restaurants will have a “Combo” deal where you get free guaranteed seating in the America Gardens Theatre (our family fave is Via Napoli in Italy). There have been a few times the concerts were so packed we had to enjoy the show from behind the theatre. Luckily, you can still see and hear the whole performance and they have two big screens that project the show for those further back.
I have been going to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival for years, even before I was 21 and before I lived in Florida! It’s a fantastic family event, with something for everyone. What’s your favorite festival at Epcot?
