Ultimate Guide to Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

For all you foodies out there, attending a food festival at Walt Disney World is probably a dream come true. We couldn't agree more! Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is billed as, “A Spectacular Celebration of Global Cuisines, Music, & More” and is one of the most well-attended events of the year.

This year Walt Disney World has extended the duration of the festival again with the festival taking place July 15th through November 20th. Another notable detail from this year's event is that last year's modified run was called the “Taste” of the Food & Wine Festival, this year the festival reverts back to its original title which gives us hope that we'll see the usual offerings.
