Disney has tonight announced that it will launch an abbreviated version of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival beginning July 15 2020.

'A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival' will feature over 20 signature global marketplaces like Hawaii, Hops & Barley, and Islands of the Caribbean, spaced out around the park. 

The 'Eat to the Beat Concert Series' will not be performed this year, but local EPCOT entertainment such as Mariachi Cobre, the JAMMitors will spread out their performances throughout the day.

A specific end date is not yet available, but Disney has said the festival will run through the fall. The 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival took place August 29 - November 19 2019 and featured over 30 Global marketplaces.

Going to be in the parks Nov. 13-17. Anyone know of a definitive date for the end of this year's Food & Wine?

Maybe now with the park reservation system keeping guests locked to just one park, I’ll be able to get that Orange Bird souvenir cup. One can hope, right? 😆

Definitely not as many food items at the booths as in years past. Not really surprising given the circumstance.

100% agree with your point.

Just make sure the trash can you're eating on is more than 6 feet away from the trash can others are eating on.

Not sure about Florida but in PA I believe it's around 120 days.

I think you missed my point. I’m not saying they would be eating kiosk food indoors. I’m saying it’s safer to have people eat kiosk food outdoors without masks than to have guests seated inside the table service restaurants without masks.

The same stand up tables as always. Maybe spaced farther apart.
