We have some more exciting news about special events at the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
Today’s we have details on an exclusive event just for D23 Gold Members! The Sip & Scream event is returning to the Food and Wine Festival this year, combining Halloween fun with Festival food and more.
This year’s D23 Sip & Scream event takes place on October 5, and includes the opportunity to attend a morning or afternoon taping of ABC’s The Chew. The show’s co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, and Daphne Oz will share recipes and Festival surprises with the audience.
Sip & Scream attendees will also get a $25 gift card to check out the eats and drinks at the Festival Marketplaces, including three dishes from The Chew Collective – Grilled Beef Skewer with Romaine, Apricots, and Feta Cheese; Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli with Rustic Tomato Sauce; and Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Mousse with a Caramel Drizzle!
But wait! There’s more! The Sip & Scream continues with an “exclusive presentation” in World Showcase AND reserved seating at that evening’s Eat to the Beat Concert at the America Gardens Theater.
Following the concert, the event culminates with a Halloween-themed dessert reception at Isle de France (an outdoor event space in Epcot’s World Showcase) where guests will enjoy spooky desserts and VIP viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. And when the clock strikes midnight, guests can head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the D23 Behind-the-Scenes Experience: A Midnight Soiree at the Tower of Terror! (Note that the Tower of Terror experience is an extra cost.)
The D23 Sip & Scream costs $125 per person (plus a $5 processing fee). The event is open to D23 Gold Members and their families. Members can reserve a ticket for themselves and 1 family member. Tickets go on sale July 11 at 10 a.m. PT at the D23 website. Each Sip & Scream guest will receive a copy of The Chew cookbook, and a $25 Disney Gift Card.
The Tower of Terror Midnight Soiree is a separate D23 event and the cost is $245 per person (plus a $5 processing fee). That event includes a behind-the-scenes experience at the attraction followed by a midnight soiree featuring themed food and entertainment. Tickets for this event go on sale July 11 at 12 p.m. PT at the D23 website.
