2021 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Begins July 15th, Drops “Taste Of” Naming Convention


    Disney has just announced that the 2021 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will kick off July 15th.

    Notable during the announcement is that Disney has removed the “Taste of” naming convention that we’ve seen with recent EPCOT festivals. This naming convention was introduced to indicate a scaled back version of the festivals, so it’s removal could indicate a return to normal, so to say. Here’s the announcement:

    Start whetting your appetites, because the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival begins July 15 at Walt Disney World Resort!

    This year’s event will kick off with Global Marketplaces, including the return of many favorites – Canada, Greece, Germany, Hops and Barley, Appleseed Orchard and others. Even more marketplaces will join the international smorgasbord as the festival continues on into the fall before wrapping on Nov. 20.

    There will be lots of ways for families to enjoy this year’s event (beyond just eating lots of great food, of course):

    • Sample all sorts of delicious cheeses served in fun ways as part of Emile’s Fromage Montage – if you collect a stamp from five different Global Marketplaces, you’ll earn a prize!
    • Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak will send you on a savory scavenger hunt in search of Remy statuettes hidden all over the park.
    • Take a tasty souvenir home from the new merchandise collections, including a festival collection featuring a spirit jersey, baseball cap and so much more.
    • Listen to musical favorites performed by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and the Jammin’ Chefs.
