Epcot at Walt Disney World doesn’t have spring, summer, fall, and winter. It has Festival of the Arts, International Flower & Garden Festival, International Food & Wine Festival, and International Festival of the Holidays. Out of all of Epcot’s well-themed seasons, the Food and Wine Festival is definitely a favorite.
The season is winding down, but you still have until November 12 to check out all of the offerings at the festival. Need help narrowing it down? Here are a few highlights you shouldn’t miss.
Flavors From Fire
There are plenty of incredible food booths at the festival, but we keep coming back to Flavors From Fire. I don’t know what makes it so special. Maybe it’s the flavor. Maybe it’s the fire. But I do know that the Charred Chimichurri Skirt Steak can’t be missed.
Eat to the Beat
Earlier this season, we enjoyed MercyMe while chowing down on some delicious food from around the world. Food & Wine Festival’s popular concert series still has three acts left. The best part? Eat to the Beat performances are included with park admission, so there’s no reason not to jam out.
It’s really hard to go wrong with macaroni and cheese in any form, but throw in some pepper bacon and green onions and you’re really doing things right. This is one of our go-to, must-eat, take-all-my-money-and-give-me-the-cheese offerings that we enjoy each year at the festival. So make sure you stop by the Active Eats booth - you won’t want to miss the gooey goodness.
Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend
Some people choose to balance out the festival calories with a nice, early morning 13.1 mile jaunt around Walt Disney World property. I am not one of those people. At least not this year. But like all RunDisney race weekends, it’s so much fun to participate as a runner. Even if you didn’t sign up, you can still be involved by visiting the race weekend expo and checking out exclusive swag, plus cheering runners on as a spectator.
I may not know much about Belgium, but I do know their waffles are on point. Eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert… you simply can’t go wrong. We tried the Belgian Waffle coated in berry compote and whipped cream, but you can also opt for warm chocolate ganache for an even sweeter treat.
Those are our highlights, but what is your favorite part of Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival 2018?
