The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE will begin at Walt Disney World Resort starting July 27 and continuing through November 18, 2023.

More than 25 Global Marketplaces throughout EPCOT, including returning favorites such as The Fry Basket, Flavors from Fire, Canada, India and Spain. Several new Global Marketplaces will open later during the festival as summer turns to fall.

Returning for 2023 is Emile’s Fromage Montage, a fun way to try tasty cheese dishes from around the world. Grab your Festival Passport and purchase any five cheese dishes listed in the back of the Festival Passport to collect a stamp. Once you’ve collected five stamps, head to Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE to redeem a sweet treat unique to the festival.

Families can embark on Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak – a “Ratatouille”-inspired adventure where guests of all ages can search for Remy throughout World Showcase and the Global Marketplaces.

And to celebrate the Halloween season, join in Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, a special pumpkin scavenger hunt from September 29 through October 31.

The festival will also welcome back the popular Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue Medicare at America Gardens Theatre.

No, it’s apparently because they are for the 100th celebration which goes through the end of the year.

Is it normal for these latecomers to have their booths remain open through FotH?

Wow I was Waay off on my thinking of where Swirled Showcase was going to be lol. I thought it was going inside World Showplace again where they had the liquid nitrogen cake pops last time. Interesting. I sure wouldn’t mind them making this a permanent thing lol, I love those cake pops lol.
