EPCOT is the place at Disney Parks for foodies. This year there are even more culinary creations and ways to celebrate with unique events.

International Food & Wine Festival Details

Walt Disney World invites you to “Take a Taste Tour Across 6 Continents and More” at EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival from July 14 to November 19, 2022.

Global marketplaces open daily from 11:00 a.m. until park closing unless noted otherwise. And don’t forget that tickets and theme park reservations are required.

For the full EPCOT Food & Wine Festival experience we suggest:

  • 3+ Day Hopper Ticket to devote quality time in EPCOT, even if you want to start your day in Magic Kingdom
  • A stay at one of EPCOT’s closest hotels including Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, Disney’s Beach Club Resort, or Disney’s BoardWalk Inn

The International Food & Wine Festival is an annual event perfect for families, couples, friend trips, and everyone in between!

The main highlights are sampling your way through six continents, exclusive entertainment options, and of course the can’t-miss attractions at EPCOT. You’ll want to bring a big appetite and plenty of friends to share in the taste testing.
