BREAKING NEWS! Disney Confirms the Return of the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival — But It’s Gonna Look a Little Different

Epcot reopens in just 27 days — and tonight Disney confirmed there’s going to be a festival when it does!


Disney has shared that the Food and Wine Festival will be returning this year — and debuting on July 15th, 2020 — but it’s going to look a little different.

The “new” festival will be called A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and it’s going to be a mash-up of both the Flower and Garden and International Food and Wine Festivals.

A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will be Epcot’s longest FESTIVAL ever, with over 20 signature global booths. Disney Parks Blog specifically stated that favorites such as Hawaii, Hops & Barley, and Islands of the Caribbean will be returning.

Guests can enjoy the newest topiary, Remy in France, and play along with Remy’s Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt.

Flower and Garden Festival Merchandise will also be available when the park reopens (if you didn’t get your Orange Bird pitcher, sounds like you may be in luck!), with Food and Wine Festival Merchandise will be debuting at a later date.
