***Official Dates - Aug 30 to Nov 12, 2018***
As leaves turning from green to red and gold mean “Fall” in northern parts, “Fall” in Florida has special meaning: Food & Wine Time!

The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival returns to Walt Disney World Resort this fall with 75 days of entertainment, events, and, of course, a veritable cornucopia of wonderful food and tasty beverages.
The festival’s 23rd year runs from August 30 to November 12, 2018.
Our guests will tell you that it’s one of their favorite times of the year; and if you haven’t been yet, this year is a great time for a first visit.
This year’s festival will continue its tradition of fine dining events, appearances by favorite Disney culinarians and top celebrity chefs, and a slate of concerts from favorite bands of the last few decades.
We don’t have too much information to share yet; but, for all you planners out there, we wanted to get dates to you as soon as we could.
