FoodandWinelogosmallYesterday was the soft open of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which officially began today. Because of the invaluable help of Chat moderator, Susan Weaver; friend of the site, Heather Pero; and blogger, Maddi Higgins, we’re able to bring you this year’s Food & Wine menus and pricing in plenty of time to start planning your assault on the booths.

The biggest change this year is the elimination of all larger sized beer offerings. Whereas in previous years beers were sold in 6-, 12-, and 22-oz. sizes, for 2014 you’ll only find 6-oz. pours and flights of 4 beers at 4 oz. each. Those are priced $3.50 and $9.25, respectively.

It will come as no surprise that prices have generally gone up from last year. Most of the returning items are 25-50¢ higher this year. The majority of food items are in the $3.75 to $5.75 range. Desserts are usually around $3.

Nearly every booth at least one vegetarian choice, though many times that choice is dessert only. Vegan choices are only found at Terra, which returns this year.

The Food & Wine Festival runs now through November 10. TouringPlans recommends visiting on weekdays to avoid what can be very long lines at the food kiosks.

  • It’s good to see that Disney FINALLY changed “mocequa” to “moqueca” in the Brazil menu. Another thing that bothers me is that “Pao de Queijo” is actually “Pão de Queijo”, even if americans don’t use accented letters.

  • The whole thing would be much more appealing to vegetarians/vegans if there were more vegan choices.

  • No more 22oz pours? Or even *gasp* 12oz pours? We may rethink our F&W plans for future years… (and I am not being my usual sarchastic self in saying this). The standard pour around the world (but not the World Showcase) is a pint, or 1/2 liter for those who insist on using what we jokingly call around here “communist units” 😀 And before someone gets on their hobby horse about how great the metric system is, I’m an applied physicist who is “fluent” in both metric and imperial units, so I use both daily, as appropriate to the given situation.

  • I am delighted to see Disney’s pointed effort to refocus the festival on food and wine instead of oversized beer pours.

    • What might be the correct size beer pour, in your opinion?

      • Hi, Lee. Not trying to start a flame war or impose my view. I like a beer (or few) as much as many others, and I have left Epcot comfortably numb once or twice. I see this new policy as an opportunity to enjoy a very short draught as more of a compliment to the appetizers, much the way wine is already considered. There’s no limit imposed by Disney on how much beer an adult guest can consume with this new policy.
        And if I want a proper pint of my beloved Harp nothing is stopping me from slipping in to the Rose & Crown. 🙂 Cheers!
