Disney is adding some new events for Annual Passholders during the 2018 Epcot Food & Wine Festival. First, let’s take a look at the Chef Mickey magnet that Annual Passholders can receive during their first visit to the 2018 Epcot Food & Wine Festival.
Annual Passholders visiting four or more times get another gift! On your fourth visit, Annual Passholders can receive a complimentary Chef Mickey-inspired cutting board.
Supplies for both the magnet and cutting board are limited and subject to availability. Limit one per Annual Passholder. Visit the Festival Center for more details and redemption information.
Also new this year is a series of V.I.Passholder Events, called Thank You Thursdays. On select Thursdays, Annual Passholders receive early access to Epcot – enter the park at 8am for early access to shopping at the Festival Center and Mouse Gear. Mimosas will also be available for purchase during the exclusive shopping window from 8am to 9am. Here are the Thank You Thursdays dates:
- August 30, 2018
- September 20, 2018
- October 18, 2018
Registration is not required for Thank You Thursdays and all Epcot attractions open at 9am. Please have your Annual Pass and photo ID ready at check-in near the Epcot entrance.
