News: 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Probable Booking Date, and More Special Events

A day after the big news about ABC’s The Chew filming from the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, we’ve got more updates for ya!

Food and Wine Festival Updates The Flying Fish Café at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn has announced its Winery Event Series taking place throughout this year’s festival. And for the first time, all Flying Fish events will be booked through the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Event booking system.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 30th, 2015 — that’s the day that booking will open for these Flying Fish events! And because Food and Wine Festival events normally begin booking on the same day, we suspect that this will be the day general booking begins for ALL Epcot Food and Wine Festival special events and low-cost events. Note that we don’t have this booking date confirmed by Disney for all events, so it’s subject to change. But we figured we’d let you know for planning purposes.
