Food & Wine Festival: Eat to the Beat

EPCOT's International Food and Wine Festival is making its return on July 27, 2023 and running through November 18, 2023! Every year it seems like Food and Wine is lasting longer and longer, and this is something that we happily embrace with so many fun activities and snacks! 

Fan favorite booths that are returning this summer are The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India and Spain. The Fry Basket was a favorite of Castle Bound Travel Company’s Travel Experts! We’ll just say we visited this festival kitchen more than most people do…or should! We can’t wait to see what new festival kitchens and culinary masterpieces make their debut this year!  

There is nothing we like more than something FREE at Walt Disney World. Emile’s Fromage Montage is making its return. Grab a Festival Passport and purchase 5 of the listed cheese dishes and redeem your stamped passport for a FREE Sweet Treat as a prize! Make sure that you get a stamp from the Cast Member that rings up your order when purchasing one of the cheese dishes, so that you can present your passport upon completion. 

Indulging in a festival is always a great way to spend your day, but sometimes the smallest travelers may not have the patience to just hang out in the World Showcase all day. We have some great news! "Ratatouille Ride and Squeak" will be a fun way to captivate and include the younger world travelers. Keep your eyes peeled and search for Remy throughout the World Showcase in this scavenger hunt. As we get closer to Spooky Season there will be an additional scavenger hunt available to purchase. "Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit" allows guests to search for Pluto’s Pumpkins throughout the World Showcase beginning on September 28 and runs through October 31.

The "Eat to the Beat" Concert Series will be presented by Florida Blue Medicare this year. Guests who purchase an "Eat to the Beat" Dining Package will receive priority seating to the concert going on that day. The star studded line up will have something for everyone throughout the festival. Beginning July 6 your travel expert will be happy to reserve your reservation for the Eat to the Beat dining package.
