Well, you gotta stay tuned to the DFB, because as August 31st approaches (that’s the Festival kickoff date!), there’s still plenty to share! For instance, today we have brand new information about the Festival Tasting Sampler!

The Tasting Sampler comes with credentials (or vouchers) for eight food or beverage items at the Festival Marketplace Booths (some exceptions do apply, and will be noted on the voucher). Also included is a limited-release Epcot Food and Wine Festival Pin.

Note that last year, purchasers could choose between eight and sixteen items on their sampler. This year, from what we can tell, there’s only the option to get eight.

The price is $65, and the Tasting Samplers can be purchased daily starting at 9:00 am at the following locations: the Festival Center, the Bridge Kiosks, the Festival Shop at the Germany Pavilion, and the Festival Boutique between Morocco and Japan (additional places to purchase may also be made available).

    Not very hard to make it a good value. Just choose 8 items that are $8.13 or more to break even or come out ahead.

    You assume that price includes tax. Last years prices did not. So really you are talking $68.90 with tax which comes out to $8.62 per item. No food items are at that price so the only reason you would get this is for the few alcoholic drinks over that price point. Last year, it didn’t need to be all the most expensive alcohol (that isn’t excluded) for it to be worthwhile at 16 for $109 since there was food over $7.
