The annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is one of the most anticipated event of its kind that WDW (Walt Disney World) has to offer. A visit to this ever-popular, epic feasting fest will put you in the middle of a sea of surprising tastes and flavors of the continents like never before. During the Event, the entire Epcot Park turns into a food mecca, where all the flavors of the world come together in one magnificent and most incredible culinary experience ever.
Moreover, it’s always exciting to see that the crowd turns up in ever-increasing numbers to celebrate the unique occasion every fall from September until the mid of November. Indeed nowhere in the world food and wine come in such amazing and tempting flavors for us to taste and try. Whether it’s the most alluring marketplaces or the delicious dishes, the aesthetic wines or the incredible cooking shows and demonstrations by celebrity chefs, the culinary attractions exceed all expectations.
Ever since it hits the most coveted grounds of the World Showcase area, Epcot International Food & Wine Festival keeps growing both in its size and popularity. Along with the amazing festive ambiance, I think the introduction of new food concepts, including ever-refreshing menus and culinary surprises will continue to excite the never-ending fans base every time the Event returns.
When it comes to the real celebrations, the stalls or marketplaces are easily the most exciting places to look for during the Event. In fact the food stalls are the main highlights with their special country -specific menus, offering the ultimate culinary delights. One of the most promising highlights for the twentieth edition of the Fest is the inclusion of new attractions that graces the Future World area for the first time. Called the Next Eats, the new area features two amazing marketplaces inspired from the popular TV series on foods.
In fact, the Chew plays an important role in the 2015 Event. With its highly innovative and sustainable recipe ideas it definitely takes the show to the next level. While the new Sustainable Chew booth features innovative and sustainable menus, the Chew Lab on the other hand exhibits some of the hottest culinary experiments ever. When it comes to wine, the newly introduced spirits from the Festival’s own wine brand is a must to try. And indeed it’s really special to see the 20th anniversary imprint on the cork of a bottle of Chardonnay or Cabernet for that matter.
The new line-up for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series is another major highlights of the Event. Besides the live musical acts, the special shows also act as exciting breaks between your epic feasting spree. Again the Celebrity Chef Demonstrations are a great favorite among food fans. If you are interested in knowing more about the favorite recipes, you can join the special ticketed events where you will learn the techniques with well-known chefs.
