Disney Travel News

By: Disney Destinations
The 24 th   Epcot®  International Food & Wine Festival kicks off on Aug. 29, 2019, and here's some details which will  help you prepare for the record-setting 87-day event!

Celebrity chefs really bring it this year, and you won’t want to miss them! Making their festival debuts this year are restauranteur   Fabio Viviani  (Sept. 15), Food Network star and cookbook author   Aarti Sequeira  (Nov. 17), and   David Burtka  (Oct. 13), celebrity chef, author of “Life is a Party” and husband of actor Neil Patrick Harris.

Returning to the festival is the Sunday Brunch with the Chef experience. Among the chefs appearing this year are   Jamie Deen  (Sept. 1),   Carla Hall  (Sept. 8),   Richard Blais  (Sept. 22),   Robert Irvine  (Sept. 29) and   Graham Elliot  (Nov. 10). Advance reservations are highly recommended for this popular experience. 

The Eat to the Beat Concert Series also returns this year from Aug. 29-Nov. 19, 2019 with 249 concerts in all. Along with previously announced artists, newcomer India (“Mi Mayor Venganza”) will make her   Epcot  concert series debut Oct. 5 and 6. Taylor Dayne (“Tell it to My Heart”) returns Oct. 3 and 4, and Kenny G (“Songbird”) is back Oct. 14 and 15. You can enjoy guaranteed concert seating by booking an Eat to the Beat Dining Package, available at participating   Epcot restaurants for breakfast, lunch or dinner reservations.

Across the festival there’s plenty planned for families with kids of all ages, starting with Candy Sushi fun hosted by   Adventures by Disney®  with candy provided by Mars Wrigley Confectionery. Located at Sunshine Seasons in The Land pavilion and offered two times daily, this experience, for a small fee, pairs families with a Disney chef for a chance to roll sweet sushi treats. 

And for the tantalizing scoop on chocolate, you won’t want to miss The Chocolate Experience: From Bean to the Bar hosted by Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. Located for the first time at the entrance of the Harvest Theater in The Land pavilion, Ghirardelli will whip up chocolate sundae treats that will be available for purchase at Sunshine Seasons.

You can rock your festival look this year by donning stylish new gear for your global dine-around experience. Chef Minnie has joined Chef Mickey to bring sparkle and a “sprinkle” of fun to this line of accessories and apparel – the cupcake headband is sure to become a Guest favorite! Chef Figment accessories and home goods will be all the purple rage. Chef Remy from Disney●Pixar’s “Ratatouille” has cooked up apparel and kitchenware designs featuring the best global ingredients. And you  can toast their way around the world with the Brews Around the World collection or the classic Taste Your Way Around the World Collection!

Now, more than ever, it’s time to plan your visit to the 2019   Epcot  International Food & Wine Festival!
