Culinary Demonstrations, Beverage Seminars, Mixology Seminars, and General Admission for Party for the Senses and the 3D Dessert Party may be bookable online at DisneyWorld.com.
Tables in Wonderland members, Annual Passholders, and Disney Vacation Club Members will most likely be able to get discounts (around $2 per person per event) for seminars and demos taking place Mon-Thurs during the festival.
Other 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Events
While we don’t have any promises, it wouldn’t surprise us if the popular (and free!) HGTV Seminars returned to the 2013 Festival!
On select weekends, Home and Garden Television personalities (along with the winner of “Design Star”) may lead seminars focusing on home entertaining.
Eat to the Beat Concerts
Throughout the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, popular bands from the 80s and 90s take the stage at the American Gardens Theater in the American Adventure Pavilion to share some of their greatest hits with the crowds! These concerts are free with Epcot admission, and take place three times per evening.
