2022 Complete Guide to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Epcot has become a park of nearly year-round festivals, but there is one that is more well known, more famous (and sometimes infamous) than all the others: The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.

If you’re visiting Epcot and plan to spend some time enjoying the 2022 Food and Wine Festival, we have everything you’ll need to know before you go, including reviews of all the booths, info on what you’ll find for entertainment, plus lots, lots more.

Here’s what you need to know to have a great time at the 2022 Epcot Food and Wine Festival:

When is the Epcot Food and Wine Festival?

Although this event has traditionally started in September and ended in November, Disney has extended the time span in recent years.

In 2022, the Epcot Food and Wine Festival will be held daily from July 14 – November 19, 2022.

In 2022, there are a total of 29 booths, with 4 of the booths not opening until August 15.

In addition to the booths, there are 4 other spots (the 4 Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea locations inside Epcot, Funnel Cakes near The American Adventure, Refreshment Port near Canada, and Refreshment Outpost between China and Germany) where you can purchase a festival-specific treat.

That means there is a total of 33 different places for you to grab Food & Wine Festival goodies!

What time do the food booths open up?

The food booths typically open up at 11:00 am, however, you may find that some of them open up a few minutes before that.

In general, the booths stay open until Epcot closes, but there are times (like when a booth starts to run out of items) when some booths might close a bit earlier.

How much does it cost to attend the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot?

Good news for everyone heading to Epcot:

Entry to the Food and Wine Festival is included in the price of your ticket.

How much does the food cost?

Although it doesn’t cost anything to attend the festival, you will have to pay for the food and beverages.

In general, drinks range in price from around $5-$9 each and food costs anywhere from around $4-$8 per serving.

Keep in mind that these prices are just averages. Some specialty cocktails and drink flights can be $11 or more each.

In the past, the Disney Dining Plan snack credits could be used for many items, however, as of right now the Disney Dining Plan has been suspended, so that isn’t an option for 2022.

Beer on a table at Food and Wine

One last thing: aside from a few places where you can get full-sized beverages, in general, the food items are smaller sizes (think 3-5 bites each), which makes it easier for you to try lots of things!

Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit

This brand-new scavenger hunt kicks off on September 29 and will be available for purchase (we assume $9.99, just like Remy’s Hide & Squeak) through October 31 (or while supplies last).

Spaceship Earth – Beauty and the Beast Sequence

With the installation of the Points of Light on Spaceship Earth, it is common for there to be special sequences incorporated into the festivals.

For the Food and Wine Festival, you’ll be able to see a special Beauty and the Beast themed sequence. It happens nightly and alternates with the Beacons of Magic.

Here’s how Disney describes it:

“…Inspired by the vibrant colors and strong movement in the 1991 Walt Disney Animation Studios classic, “Beauty and the Beast,” and infused both into the programming of the show. Be on the lookout for some fun subtle easter eggs such as rising champagne bubbles and the multicolor spotlights from the finale of the song, plus a special tri-color celebration to France, the setting and inspiration of this tale as old as time.”

Disney also puts out little (and cute!) free paper passports with all the booths and menus in it.

Here’s what the 2021 festival passport looked like (stay tuned for this year’s design!):

Food and Wine festival passport

In addition, if you decide to participate in Emile’s Fromage Montage, you’ll need a Passport to collect your stamps.

You can pick up a Passport at the entrances to the Epcot (near the maps) as well as at nearly every festival booth and merchandise location.

Food and Wine Festival Merchandise and Gift Cards

For every festival, Disney creates several cute lines of merchandise to tempt our pocketbooks.

In general, you’ll find festival merchandise in both open air booths that are spread throughout Epcot, as well as in shops like Creations Shop, World Traveler, and Port of Entry.

Here are the collections for 2022:

  • Festival Event Logo Collection

Celebrate the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival with commemorative Event Logo apparel, accessories, kitchen essentials and more!

  • Chef Mickey Mouse & Chef Minnie Mouse Collection

It’s time to get cooking! Chef Mickey Mouse and Chef Minnie Mouse make serving delicious delights easy with new merchandise, including an apron, tabletop items, kitchen-themed Dooney & Bourke accessories and more!

  • Princess Tiana Collection

Add some Disney flair to your home. Creative cooking items inspired by Tiana including handy kitchen wares, serving dishes and other favorites!

  • Chef Figment Collection

Paint your palate purple with this fun new collection featuring apparel, kitchen essentials, trading pins and a Chef Figment-themed MagicBand.

  • Chef Remy Annual Passholder Collection

Passholders can find unique Remy-inspired merchandise just for them including apparel and trading pins. This collection will also feature novelties like the Passholder tabletop––featuring platters, pitchers and more!

When it comes time to pay for your food, wine, and merchandise, you can always use room charge, cash, or card.

Another popular option is to use a gift card that you pre-load with your Food and Wine Festival budget. Speaking from experience, doing it this way makes it easier to keep from overspending (especially after you’ve sampled a glass).

Planning your time at the Food and Wine Festival

When to go

Though the Food and Wine Festival takes place 7 days a week during the festival dates, the weekends are when it gets really busy due to the influx of locals who come to enjoy it.

And, unfortunately, sometimes guests find themselves enjoying the offerings a bit too much. 

For that reason, we strongly recommend that if you want to experience Food and Wine you choose Sundays – Thursdays.

A touring plan

If you have 1 day at Epcot, we recommend that you spend the first part of the day in the Neighborhoods to ride rides, and then use the last part of the day for Food and Wine Festival activities.

Here’s what your afternoon might look like:

  • Pick up a festival passport so you can apply stickers as you work through the World Showcase
  • Stop by kiosks, enjoying various food and drinks (our preference is to visit the food booths that don’t have a permanent presence in the World Showcase)
  • Attend one of the concerts at the American Gardens Theatre
  • On your way out of Epcot, stop by a booth to pick up any festival merchandise you’d like to take home as a souvenir

Be sure to check out the following links to our Epcot Food and Wine Festival posts, where we provide all kinds of information, tips, and much more.

Historical Food and Wine Information

Lots of people plan their Disney World trips a year or 2 in advance and to help with that, we’ve moved historical information about some previous Food and Wine Festival events (that have yet to return) to this section.

We don’t have a crystal ball or any knowledge that any of the things below will be returning in the future, but just in case they do, we wanted to make sure you could see some of what has been offered in the past.

Historical Premium events (not returning in 2022)

Historically, there are have been several premium events (translation: they cost extra money) that happened during the International Food & Wine Festival.

However, those were all suspended for 2020 and we have yet to hear if they will be back for 2022 (they weren’t available in 2021).

Party for the Senses

Some of the events we’ve seen in the past are:

  • Party for the Senses – One of the hottest tickets around, this sophisticated event was the most expensive running anywhere from $229 per person up to $359 per person
  • Sunday Brunch with a Celebrity TV Chef – Less expensive but still a lot of fun, this experience clocked in at around $139 and provided guests the opportunity to eat at a lunch hosted by celebrity chefs like Robert Irvine and Aarti Sequeria
  • Beverage & cheese seminars
  • Wine and meal pairings
  • Culinary demonstrations

Disney du Jour Dance Party (unconfirmed for 2022)

Disney has not made any announcements about the return of this Dance Party for 2022.

This popular dance party was one of the newer offerings back in 2019 (which was the last year it occurred). It historically ran all week but on Friday and Saturdays it would feature performances by Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country artists.
