Epcot Food and Wine Festival World Showcase Booths
Over 30 marketplace booths will be set up on the promenade around Epcot’s World Showcase Lagoon as well as Future World (with two new booths inside the Festival Center)! Check them ALL out on our 2020 Food and Wine Festival Booth Index Page!
The Hops & Barley Booth, located in the American Adventure Pavilion, is a favorite stop for All-American eats — including smoked and grilled BBQ favorites.
Flavors from Fire should return in 2020 — and we hope to see the fun College Game Day set up!
And the popular Wine & Dine Studio is expected to return also.
Free Marketplace Discovery Passports have become a tradition and a favorite way to keep track of all the must-have dishes on your list. In recent years, gluten free and vegetarian items have also been noted! Look for kid-friendly items to be designated as well!

We’re looking forward to Cheese Seminars this year as well — along with one of our favorite events of past years, the Mexican Tequila Lunch!
Celebrity Chefs bring extra excitement to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. This year we hope to see such notables as Carla Hall, Buddy Valastro, and Jamie Deen (and more!) for the “Sunday Brunch with the Chef” series.
Look for your favorite chef during culinary demos and premium events as well as Disney and visiting chefs!

Fun for the Whole Family
Emile’s Fromage Montage is a family friendly event guests can sample a variety of delicious cheeses served in inventive ways! Purchase any five cheese dishes from the Marketplace Booths that are listed in the Festival Passport and collect a stamp for each cheese dish purchased. Once you’ve collected all the stamps bring the stamped Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips for a complimentary specialty cheesecake unique to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
This year there will be fun for the whole family at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival including: a playground, Character Dance Party (on Friday and Saturday evenings), Junior Chef Kitchen presented by Krusteaz® (a complimentary event offered on Sundays), and the return of Remy’s Ratatouille Hide ‘n’ Squeak Scavenger Hunt!
At the Disney Du Jour Dance Party, kids can look forward to dancing with a “rotating menu” of Disney Characters, including Remy and Emile from Ratatouille, along with weekend Radio Disney artist appearances!
The Fun Zone playground will give the kiddos a spot created with them in mind. Look for it right next to Taste Track in Future World, which will be a Food Booth this year.
