Get ready, because the dates for the 2021 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival are finally here, along with some other details.

The Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival basically just started (and runs through July 5) at Walt Disney World, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about the next festival.

On Wednesday, March 30, Disney announced that Food & Wine officially begins July 15 and will end on Nov. 20. Just like Flower & Garden, there will be plenty of time for guests to enjoy the festival all about, well, food and wine!

Disney has only shared select details about the festival and let’s discuss.

There’s a lot returning when Food & Wine begins in July, including the following:

  • Food Booths:  Click here to see all 32 booths and our food predictions for each (until menus are released!)
  • Emile’s Fromage Montage: You’ll collect stamps in your Festival Passport after purchasing five different cheese dishes at select Global Marketplaces. Once finished, take your passport to Shimmering Sips for a special prize!
  • Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak: You’ll purchase this scavenger hunt map (at Port of Entry, MouseGear, or World Traveler) and then hunt for hidden Remy’s across the park. After you’re done, take your map to Disney Traders in the World Showcase entrance for a surprise.

  • Once again, Voices of Liberty and Mariachi Cobre will perform at the America Gardens Theatre and the Jammin’ Chefs will be back on the Canada Mill Stage.

We can’t wait to see what else will be announced for Food & Wine. How about you?

No More “Taste Of”

Did you happen to notice something different with the festival title? That’s right, there is no more “Taste of.” 

Since WDW reopened in July 2020, EPCOT festivals have been modified and called, for example, “Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival.”

It looks like Disney is moving on from that and going back to the original festival names. It’s unclear if 2021Food & Wine will be modified or going back to “normal,” but we will keep you in the loop!
