2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Party For The Senses!

At Party for the Senses, a special host leads the evening’s festivities as guests eat, drink, and celebrate! In the past, we’ve enjoyed dishes from over 50 tasting stations as premium entertainment will change each night of the event. It’s the best of both worlds and a feast for all of the senses! This year, the event has two seating options – wine view lounge and reserved seating.

The Party is pricey and offered only on select weekend nights, so plan accordingly. To see what this event is like, check out our Party for the Senses review here. We’ll have a new review for you soon!

When: September 22, October 6, October 13, October 20, November 10
