Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Guide

This festival is amazing, but it can be overwhelming even for veterans. To help you out, I have answered some of the most common questions and provided you with some information about this year’s festival…complete with menus!

The 2021 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival runs from July 15 to November 20,2021. That is 129 days of yummy goodness!

If a marketplace is for a country that is part of World Showcase, it will be located near that country. You can find the location of all of the others listed with the menus.

Be sure to pick up a Festival Passport to help you find your way!

Do I Need to Bring Anything with Me?

The only thing you really need to bring is your appetite and some form of payment. If you are feeling particularly environmentally conscious, you could bring a set of travel utensils and/or straws.

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Questions FAQ

Do I need to buy an additional ticket for the festival?

No, the festival is included with your Epcot admission.

How do I pay at the Global Marketplaces?

The Global Marketplaces accept the same forms of payment as other dining locations throughout Walt Disney World. You can pay with cash, major credit cards, Disney gift cards, and a Disney Rewards Redemption Card.

Is the festival open all day?

The Global Marketplace booths typically open around 11:00am, which is the current park opening time, and close just before park closing, . Occasionally, some booths may open a little later and some may even close a little early.

I am a really picky eater. Do I have to order everything as is?

The answer all depends on how the item is prepared. If it has a sauce, garnish, side, etc. that is added just before they hand it to you, you can ask them to leave it off. I recommend watching how things are prepared before you order something you may not like.

Below is a photo of the filet mignon from Canada without the mushrooms.

Are there places to sit and eat?

Not many. You may get lucky and find a bench, but most people stand and eat. There are tables spread throughout the Global Marketplace areas where you can stand. Many guests have been known to use the trashcans as tables.

I don’t drink alcohol. Will there be anything for me to drink?

Yes! Many of the Global Marketplaces offer non-alcoholic specialty drinks and all of them sell bottled water.
