The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

You may be surprised about all there is to know about the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival! It’s much more than the Food Booths scattered all around the park providing extra food and drink options for Epcot guests (though we love those, too!). If you’ve never been to the Food and Wine Festival (or even if you have!) you may not know about all the extra Epcot happenings from Special Events to Culinary and Beverage Seminars and Demonstrations, to the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, and much, MUCH more! So join us in our first in a series of videos all about our favorite event of the year: the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
