Kid-friendly foods at Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Posted on
Although my elementary-school-age kids are like most others, a little bit of Disney magic this time of year turns them into discerning foodies. Every year, Epcot's Food and Wine Festival transforms my children, ages 9 and 11, into adventurous eaters. One child usually is a bit pickier than the other, but you wouldn't know it when it comes time to sample the dishes at the international marketplaces at Walt Disney World.

This year, some guests at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival have the opportunity to step into one of Walt Disney World's private party spaces -- free of charge. The Chase VIP Lounge has moved from the Festival Center in 2012 to the American Adventure Parlor this year, and it is open to all Chase Visa card members. Each card member may bring as many as nine guests. To access the space, there is a queue in front of the building, slightly to the right, where you can present your card.

This year, fans of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival may be a little less sad when it ends because they'll still be able to find some of the most popular dishes from the event on Walt Disney World property. New food trucks, featuring old and new favorite foods, will be rolling into Downtown Disney as soon as mid-November. Each of the four food trucks is themed to one of Walt Disney World's parks.

Kids and families will find plenty to sample at Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

Posted on
Visiting the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival can be a wonderful evening for adults. In fact, many Disney fans and local residents look forward to this special event all year. But the fun isn't just limited to the grown-ups. For children who are at least elementary-school-age and a little adventurous in their tastes, there's quite a lot to explore. (And if your kids are younger, they may be happy to stay in the stroller, while you sample the adult foods and beverages.)
