We’re journeying to Epcot today, where — just a spark from me to you — you’re going to want to scroll all the way through the day’s What’s New. We’ve got Windbreakers (yes, the 80s are back… but make it Disney), miles (not exactly but almost) of construction fencing, and FOOD BOOTHS ARE GOIN’ UP! Let’s see if we can light your fancy, shall we?
Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival kicks off on August 29, 2019, and continues until November 23, 2019. That’s 87 days of food, wine, demos, seminars, and more! With the Festival getting bigger and more complex with each passing year, we figure it’s time to get back to the simple truths — seven, in fact — about Food & Wine.
1. It’s big. Really big.

You know your friends at the DFB recommend making Advance Dining Reservations before you depart for your fabulous Walt Disney World vacation — 180 days ahead of time, if you want to be sure to snag your must-have table service reservations.
But what if you’re planning to spend time at Epcot during the International Food and Wine Festival? Do you need ADRs if you’ll be noshing around the World Showcase?
Here we share some thoughts on whether or not you need Advance Dining Reservations during the Festival!
Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival is a fabulous opportunity to eat lots of great food and to drink lots of great drinks. And while we know we’ll be putting some of our returning favorites on our must-eat list — we also make a second list: New Stuff We Can’t Wait to Try! (Yeah, we’re all about lists here at DFB!)
And this is that list — including a few items we got the chance to sample recently!
Guinness Baileys Shake – Ireland
The new Guinness Bailey’s Shake from the Ireland booth got us all kinds of excited when we saw it on the menu! We were expecting a frozen, creamy drink with a powerful hit of Guinness and Baileys — and that’s just what we got when we tried it during a preview! PLUS it comes with the glass! We can’t wait to try it again!
The Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar is brand new this year, and the offerings sound incredible! Mimosas include varieties like the Tropical Mimosa and the Madras Mimosa (which we have tried!), and there’s a tasty-sounding, kid-friendly drink called Frozen Apple Pie!
But aside from those intriguing drinks, the Mimosa Bar is also serving up pastries like an Almond Croissant and a Cheese Danish with Sweet Icing! One of each, please! [Read more…]
