Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival 

The International Food & Wine Festival that takes place in Epcot at Walt Disney World is an annual event which happens during the fall of every year. This year, the festival takes place from September 14 to November 14. The two month long event makes it’s wrap up right after the Wine & Dine Half-Marathon weekend.

The World Showcase in Epcot is home to eleven different countries: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, America, Italy, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom,  and Canada. During the Food & Wine festival, not only will there be food and drinks available from those countries but a myriad of stands are set up for new countries and placed accordingly to order yummy food and drink from. Some new countries include: Brazil, Ireland, New Zealand, Scotland, Poland, Australia, South Korea, Greece, Belgium, and so many more!

You can find free Food & Wine passports scattered around the park which contains pages of all the countries, stands, food, and drink options. There are even cute little stickers with country titles on them so you can place them on the corresponding country’s page once you’ve visited there.


This weekend my love came to visit and we made the attempt to eat our way around the world at Food & Wine.

Despite the relatively small dish sizes, it took us Friday afternoon, Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon to get through all of the countries and eat our way around the world. It was such a fun time and my tummy was in absolute heaven this entire weekend! If you’re doing the Disney College Program or visiting Walt Disney World in the fall time, I’d mark this as a definite “thing-to-do” if you can.
