Excitement is building for the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
We got our first look at festival artwork at the recent Food and Wine Festival preview, and people are already talking about how much they love it! I adore how they’ve worked World Showcase landmarks into the colorful art.
Today, we’re psyched to share with you some of the 2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival artwork and other merchandise that will be featured during this year’s event!
2013 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Signature Artwork
This year’s signature artwork is quite a departure from last year’s more photojournalistic style. In 2013, the mood has turned whimsical, and the familiar motif of this year’s festival decor turns up in the background, but in a softer pastel palette.
Look closely, and you’ll even spy Remy from Ratatouille perched in the top of the bumbling chef’s toque!
Other Epcot Food and Wine Festival Merchandise: Figurines, Pins, Vinylmation, and More
The chef is also the star of a new 7-inch bobble figurine, made extra awesome because he’s balancing on top of Spaceship Earth!
Disney artists have also created new character artwork with Mickey, Goofy, and Donald in chef whites. The character pieces are reminiscent of similar vintage-inspired pieces that we’ve spied in the Italy pavilion.
We can’t wait to see all the cool ways these three will be featured!
The merchandise team has come up with a great line up of must-haves for the 2013 festival. The bumbling chef turns up on reusable shopping bags, and artwork is featured on the palette plates that we love, love, love. A new set of Mickey ears features a chef’s hat and is sure to be a hit with festival goers.
And the pins! I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure I have to have the new Cranberry BOG pin, featuring Chip ‘n’ Dale! And Duffy the Disney Bear is sporting some new togs, too.
Vinylmation collectors will want to check out the limited edition 2013 Food and Wine Festival Vinylmation, featuring Chef Gusteau from Ratatouille. Only 2,500 of the figures are being produced — 2,250 in the full color version, and only 250 of the black and white guy. Packaged in a mystery box, it will be fun to see which one you get.
Look for all of the fun Food and Wine Festival-themed merchandise at Festival Center as well as at stands throughout World Showcase.
