New Details For the 17th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival


The Disney Parks Blog has officially released some great new details for the upcoming 17th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

First of all, we need to discuss the food. I mean, that is one of the best parts, right? There’s nothing like gorging yourself on little samplings from all over the globe!

This year, there will be two new offerings for guests to enjoy! First will be the Terra marketplace, an area that will strictly offer vegan items such as Trick’n Chick’n Curry with Basmati Rice and Chili Colorado with House-Made Chips and Cashew Cheese. (I’m not even vegan, and those both sound delicious!) The other new food booth for this year will be the Florida marketplace. This area will offer fresh and unique twists on local Floridian flavors, like Florida Shrimp Ceviche with Fire Roasted Veggies and Crispy Plantains.


In addition, Disney claims the festival is going to try to appeal to a more kid friendly demographic this year with a few treats that will appeal to a pickier age set. (For example, cheese fondue and beef empanadas.)

Finally, for those of you who love Disney tours, each Wednesday during the Festival, a festival chef will host a walk around with guests where you’ll be able to stop at several of the marketplaces to try a morsel or two. Guests will get to try five dishes and five beverages. Plus, you may learn a few cooking tips along the way. No word on how much this experience is going to cost just yet, but it certainly sounds like a fun adventure!

So get ready, because the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is coming, September 28 – November 12, 2012! Bon Appetit!

    Does anyone know if the Hawaii marketplace is returning? Loved the pork sliders last year! Also, the cheese fondue isn’t new – the Cheese marketplace had it last year.

      Ann…fixed the post to make that adjustment. And I am one who also hopes the Hawaii marketplace is returning too! I also adored the pork sliders! Absolutely yummy!
