One of the biggest things that was missing was the Eat to the Beat Concert series. The concerts were unfortunately canceled for last year’s Festival. Also, other similar events at EPCOT’s festivals — like the Disney on Broadway Concert Series that usually takes place at the International Festival of the Arts — have not taken place since the parks reopened after the COVID-19 closures. The 2021 Food and Wine Festival is still several months away and we really haven’t gotten details about it yet. But, we have found something that might give us a clue about the future of the Eat to the Beat Concerts at this year’s Festival!
We’ve been enjoying ALL the tasty things at the 2020 Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and, we’ll just say, our stretchy pants have gotten a LOT of use lately!
We heard that one of our favorite booths would likely be joining the festival today, so we made our way to EPCOT today to take a peek!
Now introducing: the greatest taste test you never knew you needed — MAPLE SYRUP taste testing!!
While it’s not as extravagant as the maple popcorn milkshake, you can find this sweet tasting experience at the Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival inside of the World Showplace.
World Showplace is a big blue tent-like structure near the UK Pavilion in World Showcase. Since they are monitoring how many people are inside World Showplace at any one time, you may arrive and be asked to join a virtual queue. Once you’re inside, head over to the maple syrup booth featuring the unique and wonderful flavors from Burton’s Maplewood Farm!
Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom is newly re-opened and operational. Now, it’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot’s turn to welcome back guests. Epcot is kicking off the theme park’s re-opening with a modified Food & Wine Festival on July 15th!
The new version of Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival will be serving up old favorites like the Frothy Ramen and Teriyaki Chicken Bun and soon-to-be favorites like the booth that’s dedicated ENTIRELY to mac n’ cheese! The festival may be modified, but there’s still plenty to eat. We’ve got a free printable checklist that will help you make sure that you’re not missing a single thing!
If you’re here, you probably know a lot about Disney dining — or are looking to learn more. With hundreds of dining options in the Disney Parks, we are always finding new experiences, unique meals, and culinary adventures that even the most hardcore Disney aficionados may not know about — and we are here to share them with YOU!
Today, we are sharing 10 Disney meals you don’t know about — but you should!
Booking for Epcot Food and Wine Festival events opens on June 14th at 7AM for the general public, and on June 12th at 9AM for select affinity groups like DVC members, Annual Passholders, and Tables in Wonderland members; and that means it’s TIME TO PLAN TODAY!
If you want to make the most of your visit to this uber-popular festival, you can’t wait until you step foot into the park to sort it all out. Last year’s festival had 35 food booths and more demonstrations, seminars, and special events than ever before, and 2018 is shaping up to be even bigger!
kicks off on August 31 with an epic and record-breaking number of food booths — 35 — representing cuisines and lifestyles from around the globe.
And as part of the Festival’s on-going commitment to providing awesome eats for guests of all kinds, many of the booths are featuring Gluten Free options! We expect to see lots of signage indicating the GF dishes. And of course cast members can also answer your food allergy questions.
