Although the Food and Wine Festival is one of our favorite times of the year to visit Disney World, you can still experience some of the fun from the comfort of your home!

According to a statement made by Florida’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurers, Disney will be pairing with the healthcare company to create new at-home experiences for the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. Residents of over 55 communities will be able to participate in a virtual event with culinary demonstrations with an actual Disney chef, musical guests, and other surprise experiences along the way!

Sarah Iselin, the Florida Blue executive vice president of Government Programs and Diversified Businesses, has stated that “Florida Blue is dedicated to providing health insurance solutions to Floridians of all ages—from childhood to the golden years—just as Walt Disney World Resort provides multigenerational appeal through its variety of engaging experiences and entertainment options. By forming this new relationship with Disney, we are aligning two strong Florida brands to provide residents at every age with unique events and opportunities that can only be achieved with a touch of Disney magic.”
