Year after year, the Party for the Senses remains one of the most highly anticipated Special Events for the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Boasting a huge variety of dishes created by Master Chefs and drinks along with live music and entertainment, the Party is a highlight of the season for many Festival guests.
We wait all year for the start of it. Yep — the Epcot Food and Wine Festival is underway!

We’re LIVE today from Walt Disney World with some new details for the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
Earlier this week, we shared the full list of Booths and Menus, Special Events, and Booking Dates.
Since then, we’ve been gathering additional information about early booking opportunities and just who can call when. 🙂
Today, Disney has filled in a few more of the gaps.
2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booth and Menu Details, and NEW Food Photos
Returning after a period away from the booth lineup, we welcome back Spain, India, Thailand, and The Cheese Studio. That means there are more booths than ever this year — 35 to mark the 35 years of Epcot.
But of course, this means that we have to say goodbye to a few to make room. Gone from the booth line-up in 2017 are the Desserts and Champagne, Poland, and South Korea booths.
As always, you can visit our Epcot Food and Wine Festival Menu Index page for ALL the menus and links to individual booth pages showing food photos. We’ll be updating these pages throughout the festival with photos of every single food item!
But today, we’re sharing MENU and BOOTH Details as well as FOOD PHOTOS from both World Showcase and Future World booths! Start Your Planning NOW!
In previous years, Party for the Senses one of the festival’s biggest (and priciest) Special Events, brought together over-the-top food and drink, paired with up close and personal entertainment provided by Cirque de Soleil. But in 2016, that all changed, as the events became much more specifically themed and the slate of entertainment changed with each party.
Join us as we look back at one of the events from last year, which celebrated Disney Springs.
Party for the Senses: A Sense of Disney Springs
Have you ever been inside the cavernous World ShowPlace? What? You don’t even know what that is?
Well, that’s because it’s a special events pavilion that’s only opened up for big doings, such as holiday dinner buffets… and grand tasting events during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, like Party for the Senses. During the rest of the year, the venue, located between the Canada and UK Pavilions, is hidden behind a large set of wooden doors.
As you enter, the first room is normally sort of like a giant receiving hall. Go past this area, and that’s where the party really starts. [Read more…]
Early Booking Date Confirmed
And speaking of Special Events, it has been confirmed that Disney Vacation Club Members and Tables in Wonderland Members are eligible for early booking for this year’s Festival. While the general public can book all events July 20th at 7:00 am EST, DVC Members (as well as the previously confirmed Tables in Wonderland, Annual Passholders, and, we believe, Golden Oak Residents) can book select Special Events such as Culinary Demonstrations, Beverage Seminars, and “Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It” Workshops and “Party for the Senses” starting at 9:00 am EST on July 18th.
