2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival begins in July

10 days ago in "Epcot International Food and Wine Festival"

Disney has today announced the dates for the 2021 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.

This year's event begins July 15 and runs through to November 20 2021, which is very similar in length to last year's festival.

Most notably, Disney is not yet assigning it the "Taste of" title, meaning that perhaps we may see  return of a full scale festival for the first time since COVID-19.

We don't yet have many details, beyond seeing a return of Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak scavenger hunt and the Global Marketplaces, including Canada, Greece, Germany, Hops and Barley, and Appleseed Orchard.

I believe the packages sold started Oct 1. IIRC.

There are booths that don't match with any of the countries.

Wasn't there a rumor a few weeks ago that Harmonious packages were being sold to Food and Wine sponsors? Does that suggest the possibility of Harmonious over the summer? (I'm not expecting it).

True, I was thinking more for the booths that don’t go with the pavilion, or it could be just a garden area themed to the pavilion with high tops and benches. I’ve enjoyed the tables they’ve placed around the UK pavilion a few months ago, if they could add more things like this around the park that’s be nice.

I hear ya. But I also like eating an egg roll while I'm in China, etc. If they were going to centralize it, may as well put it all in th World Showcase pavilion.

...but everyone has forgotten about that. who wants stuff included in admission?

Sirwalterraleigh10 days ago

sense a permanent pattern there?

they sell more dispersed...and a central location would become a bar for millennials.

They certainly expanded F&W (+6 weeks) and Garden (+4) weeks during the pandemic. Pre-pandemic, about 1/3 of the year had no festival days. Pandemic years: only 1/10 of the year will have no festival days.

I was saying this the other day to some friends. If the new normal is going to be longer festivals, give guests a place to enjoy it that doesn’t clog up the main pathways. They have a nice area along the rose walk where you can pull off the path and eat at something other than a trash can which is great. I could see mores areas like this in parts of future world, and as you said, in the outpost area. I think people would be more ok with the longer festivals if they didn’t clog up the park so much.

If they’re never gonna do anything in the Africa plot...might as well make another World Showplace and consolidate a bunch of booths and have an indoor and outdoor seating area...get some static traffic off the main path around the lagoon.

that’s still happening...they’ve announced about “half” of a redo.

I love the festivals and the booths. Id much rather walk around and snack than do a sit down.
