Disney World’s theme parks will begin their phased reopenings starting with Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11th followed by Hollywood Studios and Epcot on July 15th.
And now, Disney has just announced Epcot will be offering a modified version of its Epcot Food and Wine Festival starting on the very first day of its initial grand reopening! July 15th!!
A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will feature 20 signature global marketplaces spaced throughout the park.
We’re also told elements of Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival (which was cut short this year due to the temporary closures) will be “sprinkled in” with the global goodies of Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. The new Remy topiary will be out in the France pavilion and Flower & Garden merchandise will also be for sale. So…this will basically be a hybrid Food and Wine and Flower and Garden Festival…which is kind of awesome!
The festival is scheduled to be EPCOT’s LONGEST EVER, continuing through the fall!
Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt returns and Food & Wine merchandise will join the party later this year! But sadly, the Eat to the Beat concerts have been canceled for 2020.
We’ll share more details with you about this new hybrid festival as they’re released!
