Can you feel it? The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is RIGHT around the corner and today made it feel even more REAL!
Today as we were visiting EPCOT we noticed some new additions to the Food and Wine Festival Booths that were not there before. Disney added menus with prices around most of the booths around World Showcase! We made sure to grab some first looks for you so that you can continue to plan your trip to The EPCOT Food and Wine Festival this year! Let’s take a look!
The first menu that we came across was Flavors from Fire. The menu this year is featuring two savory dishes and one dessert with three alcoholic beverage options. These food items are all returning and are some fan-favorites!
The next menu that went up was Earth Eats! This booth highlights meat alternatives for our Vegan and Vegetarian fans out there.
We can see the return of the Impossible Burger Slider and the new Impossible Three-Bean Chili! Both sound delicious.
Oh boy! It is NOODLE TIME! One of our most anticipated booths of the festival, Noodle Exchange, put their menu up as well and features dishes like Traditional Spicy Vietnamese Beef Pho and Shrimp and Coconut Curry Rice Noodles!
Our team is especially excited for this booth!
Looking forward to the Australia booth this year? Well, let’s put another shrimp on the barbie because the menu is now up too! This menu is going to feature the Grilled Sweet and Spicy Bush Berry Shrimp and for dessert a Deconstructed Pavlova!
Shimmering Sips is up next and it is going to be returning the Shimmering Strawberry Soft Serve and also featuring a Banana Bread with a mixed berry compote, YUM! That special EPCOT Food and Wine Festival Corkcicle costs $21.
As we were walking we also came across the menu showcasing the items for Emile’s Fromage Montage and needless to say we got even more excited!
To complete the crawl, you’ll buy 5 cheesy dishes from around the festival, and then be rewarded with a free prize!
Next up on our walk, we saw the menu for one of the new booths at the Food and Wine Festival, The Swanky Saucy Swine. We honestly cannot get over the fact that there is a Crispy Pig Ear Salad either.
Next on our journey around World Showcase was the China booth which had its menu on display. This menu featured some delicious-looking Pan-Fried Chicken Dumplings and a ZiRanBeef Bao Bun as well as one of our favorite cocktails the ByeJoe Punch!
Ready for more Asian flavors? Next up on the trek, we spotted the menu for India! All you bread-service fans out there — it looks like it will be making an appearance at the India booth this year! This booth does not open until October 1st.
This next booth is new-ish. You will notice that the Kenya booth is taking the place of the Africa booth that we have seen in the past. This booth does not open until October 1st.
We can’t wait to try the Kenyan Coffee Barbecue Beef Tenderloin.
It made last year’s best of the fest list!
It looks like the Italy menu is up as well! Anytime you pair cheese-filled Ravioli, Pomodoro Sauce, and deep-frying, you can count us in! This menu does offer some pricier options, though.
We cannot wait to listen to some live music and enjoy some of that delicious Carrot Cake!
The next menu that we came across was the Ireland booth ready to go with some returning favorites! Although the menu is out, this booth doesn’t open until October 1st.
The next stop on this delicious journey led us to Canada! On our way to check out the menu though we were able to spot one of our favorite Cast Members Jason and the rest of the Jammitors making magic and putting smiles on all of our faces!
After this very welcomed pit stop, we were able to take a look at the menu for the Canada booth.
While the Appleseed Orchard signs have been put up they still don’t have any pricing information on them.
And that’s a wrap!
Missing Menus Report
As we are sure you noticed there were some missing friends from our list of menus. We were sad to see that Mexico, Brew-Wing, France, Belgium, and The Refreshment Port did not have their menus up yet. With all of the progress that they have had, we are sure it’s only a matter of time, but for now, we will wait! Be sure to visit our page showing you all the menus, prices, and delicious food pics you can handle!
