A First Look Around the 2018 Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Today is the day! Epcot has been preparing for the 2018 Food and Wine Festival, which officially opens today, August 30. There were some signage and menu boards out in advance of the opening, so we thought we’d share some first photos of the decor around the park.

Now in its 23rd year, the festival will feature more than 30 global marketplaces that offer small dishes and beverages from around the world, as well as special dining experiences, both paid and free events, and a series of nightly Eat to the Beat concerts.

We’ll have prices for the global marketplace menu items later today, along with food and other photos, so check back again soon!

And don’t forget the rest of our Food and Wine Festival coverage:
