One of our favorite events of the year is back – in a safer, more precautionary way due to 2020 – for those who want to sip, savor, and stroll across six continents at the Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival featuring some of the best in food and drink from July 15 to November 22.
This year’s festival is understandably different from what it was in the past (see our article on the safety precautions for COVID-19 at EPCOT this year), but the chef’s and beverage teams at Walt Disney World continue to bring together some of the freshest ingredients, cooking techniques, and presentation to honor the diverse global cuisines as well as thoughtfully paired wine and beer with selections at each marketplace for the perfect sip.
This year, there is also a digital Festival Guidebook available on the My Disney Experience mobile app with listings of more than 20 festival-exclusive marketplaces including family fun activities like the return of Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt; entertainment including the merry Mariachi Cobre and the rhythmic JAMMitors crew; plus, a peek at the limited-edition 25th anniversary merchandise for purchase.
I am so happy also that they brought back the Orange Bird Sipper souvenir cup with the fantastic orange cream shake. Cutest. Cup. Ever!
