Epcot Food & Wine Festival returns to Walt Disney World for another season of delectable food and beverage samplings, from July 14-November 19, 2022.
Disney Parks Blog announced today, March 31, 2022, that Disney’s chefs, mixologists, and sommeliers are ready to take guests on a culinary journey around Epcot’s World Showcase again as the International Food & Wine Festival returns with more than 25 Global Marketplaces, plus “food for the soul” at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series.
Favorite marketplaces such as The Swanky Saucy Swine, Appleseed Orchard, Hops & Barley, shimmering Sips hosted by Corkcicle, and Earth Eats hosted by Impossible will return to the festival. Over the course of the 129-day event, some of the marketplaces will open a few weeks after the others, which, Disney Parks Blog says, will keep the event spicy.
The popular Eat to the Beat Concert Series also returns, featuring headliner and local acts playing live concerts on the American Gardens Theatre stage, all of which are included in theme park admission. Artists have not yet been announced for the 2022 season.
Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2022 includes even more family-friendly fun:
Visitors to the festival can enjoy a ride on Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and take part in a savory scavenger hunt with Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak. Maps and stickers are available for purchase from select merchandise locations.
Seek out statues of Remy, and each time you find one, put a sticker on the appropriate place on your map. When all statues have been found, scavenger hunters will receive a prize just by showing their map to a cast member at Disney Traders, Gateway Gifts, or World Traveler shops in Epcot.
Keep the très magnifique fun going with Emile’s Fromage Montage, a delicious tasting journey of five cheeses from select Global Marketplaces. Be sure to collect all five stamps in your festival passport.
Guests can remember their visit with official limited-edition festival merchandise, from apparel to home décor, trading pins, and other mementos.
More information on the Global Marketplaces and the Eat to the Beat Concert lineup will be announced soon.
