Happy November from Epcot! November brings Dia de los Muertos to the Mexico Pavilion, a lot of Holiday merchandise to the park, the end of the Food and Wine Festival on November 12 🙁 and the start of the Festival of the Holidays on November 18 🙂 to this really busy park! That’s in addition to the construction for the new Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille rides and installation of the park’s Skyliner station!! Here’s everything we found!
One of the activities (besides eating and drinking) at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival that has proven to be popular is Remy’s Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt. We saw a lot of you and your kiddos completing this fun activity this year, and it has been so popular they ran out of the prizes — but don’t despair, new prizes are here!
If you aren’t familiar with this activity, the map is available for purchase at a few locations around Epcot, then you and your kiddo look for a small statue of Remy hidden in each country. When you find it pop the sticker on the map. Once your map is complete you have earned a prize. Originally your prize was one of the plastic cups shown above, but those are now out of stock.

The 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival is the event that Disney World Food Lovers — us included! — wait for all year long! And it will be here before you know it!

And I know you can’t either. But we gotta. 😉 So in the meantime, we’ve set out to offer you some super helpful tips as you gear up for another memorable Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.
They come from the DFB Guide to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival e-book. This year’s guide is available for pre-order ahead of the festival. And when you pre-order your 2018 guide, you’ll receive the first cut of the 2018 guide as an immediate download, so you can get started with your planning right away, even as we continue to gather the final details for this year’s Festival!

Should I Bring My Kids to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival?
Want to know the short answer? We say: Yes!
But why? Well… lots of reasons!
There’s still morning in Future World! Don’t forget — first and foremost, Epcot is still a theme park. Listen, I know that they’ve gone a little bonkers with the whole festival thing (not that we mind at all), but at the end of the day — or rather, at the beginning — Epcot is still a park with cool rides and educational attractions.
Don’t forget to spend some time exploring and reacquainting yourself with Soarin’, Test Track, Mission Space, and more! (We, for one, are constantly amazed by how many kiddos love Living With the Land, too!) [Read more…]
