Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic
The 2021 Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic will be held on October 29 and 30, 2021!
The event — in its 11th year in 2021 — brings together food and beverage from the hotels’ 17+ eateries as well as local products to entertain the taste buds of foodies and fans.
Dates & Times
The 2021 Food & Wine Classic will be held October 29-30.
Each night’s events begin at 5:30PM Eastern.
The Food & Wine Classic is held along the Causeway between the two hotels. Food, beer, wine, and cocktail booths line the Causeway and make for a tasty stroll!
Additional adjacent areas include:
- Beer Garden
- The Pig & The Poke
- Hang 10
These are included in the price of the Causeway ticket. (More on ticketing below!)
Typically there are two ways to enjoy the offerings at the Food & Wine Classic: Causeway Tickets and A La Carte Tickets. For 2021, the Classic will not offer A La Carte Tickets.
The Causeway ticket costs $165 per person (includes a service fee and taxes) and includes unlimited samples from the Causeway offerings and the Beer Garden.

A la Carte Tickets — Not available for 2021
If you’ve got a smaller appetite (or if your kiddos are coming along), the A la Carte Tickets might make more sense for you. Twenty-five tickets cost $75, and you will use these tickets to try items as you wish. Items cost between 2-6 tickets each, so you’ll need to plan carefully to get a taste of everything that appeals to you.

Guests may also book an overnight package starting at $580 at the Swan, Dolphin, or Swan Reserve hotels. This includes a one-night stay for two and two Causeway Tickets to the Classic.
