Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt

Kids of all ages can search for Remy on a savory scavenger hunt around the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Purchase your map and stickers from select Festival merchandise locations, including Port of Entry, Pin Traders, World Traveler (located at International Gateway).
Next, locate statuettes of Remy hidden throughout World Showcase and the Global Marketplaces and match the ingredient stickers to your map.
Once you've found them all, bring your completed map to Disney Traders, World Traveler, or Gateway Gifts—located at the entrance to World Showcase—and choose a surprise, compliments of Chef Remy.

Emile's Fromage Montage

Sample a variety of delicious cheeses served in inventive ways. Purchase any five cheese dishes from select Global Marketplaces listed in the Festival Passport, and be sure to collect a stamp for each purchased dish.
Once you've collected all five stamps, bring the stamped Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips for a specialty prize unique to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

Having gone to the F&W a couple times this fall, i can say there are a couple things i noticed, wish they could bring some things back. First off, ive noted a couple times that there was A LOT more craft beer this year at the festival and sugary drinks plus, some of the food was too much golden coral buffet. That is fine as disney does their homework i guess this is what the masses want. this year as they did a phased opening, when it was fully open it was as crowded as ive ever seen it. i dont think extra workers at the booths would have helped, they were humming along pretty good. i just felt this year they really had everything close together and not as spaced as in years past. i was disappointed they did not use the festival pavilion between England and Canada which used to have a bunch of stuff in it with the piano person playing, was really nice. Next was Canada, all cider? come on Canada has some good wine up there. Also not in use was the old horizions building where they had classes and tastings which was fun too. They used to have multiple different wines in the American adventure area from all over the US, that is gone and the tastings of Australia is gone too ( have not had this in years), it was $20 and taste 5 wines. look we all get the covid thing but i hope next year they can bring back some of the luster that made this an event worth going to. Also please shorten it again from september to november. too hot in July. Yes i will be back next year, im not one saying im never going again, just wish a couple things could change.

No discounts at the food booths. And every weekend is busy, especially the last weekend. Have fun.

I'll be going with a friend to F&W that has a Disney Visa Premier Card. We are wondering if the dining discount can be used on the F&W booths? Also, Does the last Friday tend to be very busy?

I like that they’ve added a few of these little “festival parks” I’ll call them. It helps get clutter off the promenade and add more seating.

This is a close to what it might be, promising, but a dead end...

Does anyone know if the band for August 20 thru 23, "The Vybe", is that old acapella group they used to have in the early 2000s? I can't find anything on this band.

WDW has been advertising lately on getting more to apply to work in the parks.

That is what the Epcot after 4pm ticket was for.

I’ve always wondered why Disney didn’t open the showcase for a dining experience in the evening. Opportunity to bring in a paying adult crowd for dining using the Boardwalk entrance (small charge for entrance). They could’ve figured out a way to block off entrance to the ride section and use technology for ride access.
