This year Epcot is celebrating the 25th anniversary of one of its most popular festivals – the International Food and Wine Festival. Aside from the fact that it is starting in mid-July this year, we are definitely expecting to see a very different festival than we have grown accustomed to. This year we are seeing 20 individual global marketplaces, compared to a whopping 30 for 2019. This is no surprise given the reduced capacity and safety measures in place. We are saddened and will miss a couple of our favorite booths, Greece, Ireland and Coastal Eats, but are pleasantly surprised to see a full marketplace dedicated to Mac & Cheese as well as a favorite the Flower & Garden Festival, Citrus Blossom.
A positive from the scaled-down version is that we are seeing some of the Epcot Flower & Garden goodies sprinkled in including a couple of fun topiaries!
The Walt Disney World Taste of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival begins July 15th, 2020.
