Epcot Food & Wine Festival Dates Set for 2013

Dates have been announced for the 18th Annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.   From September 27 – November 11, 2013, you can taste your way around the world at Disney World’s most cultural theme park. All you need is an Epcot ticket to gain access to all the offerings of this festival.

The culinary event is the highlight of the fall season at Disney World as visitors can explore nearly 30 international marketplaces, listen to some of their favorite tunes during the Eat to the Beat Concert Series and attend culinary programs with celebrity chefs and demonstrations. During the festival more than 300 international and national wines will be available, along with more than 76 kinds of international foods.  You can learn about wine and beer at over 300 seminars, and indulge in one of the more than 100,000 desserts served.   End each night with a performance at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series along with a viewing of “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth.”

New for the 2013 festival is the marketplace debut of Scotland.  Beers, meads and scotch will be highlights of the marketplace.  Brazil returns after being absent in 2012, while the vegetarian marketplace Terra returns as does Hawaii.  A few of the celebrity chefs set to attend include Warren Brown, Bryan Voltaggio, Rock Harper, Jamie Deen and Paula DaSilva, among others. 

Servings for the sumptuous appetizer sized portions served range from $4-$8; drinks are $3-$6.  Purchase Epcot Disney tickets to be a part of this international flavor-filled festival.
