Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing for a record 87 days this year until Nov 23rd.
This festival is filled with food and beverage pairings, celebrity chefs, fun for the kids, speciality seminars and you can even Eat to the Beat with their musical concert series.
One of my favorite things to do at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is to pickup a passport and stroll around the World Showcase. You can sip and savor your way through small plates of different cuisines. I like the idea for new tastings as well as our favorites that return year after year.
New kiosks to this year’s festival: The Alps where you can try Swiss-inspired dishes
and the AppleSeed Orchard inside the Canadian pavilion. Celebrate the fall season with sweet and savory apple dishes paired with ciders, beers and wines and it’s a great place to cool off from the the Florida heat.
Make sure you pick up your Festival Passport to keep track of the food and drinks that you enjoyed at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. When you get home you have a souvenir of your cuisine experience and you can remember what you had to share your suggestions with others.

One fun family activity is the Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt. You need to find figures of Remy hidden around and near World Showcase. Once you find him, you place a sticker of each one on your map and turn in for a prize! It is $6.99 and if you are an Annual Passholder you can use your discount.
