Epcot Food & Wine Festival

It may be time for the Flower & Garden Festival, but I’m always looking forward to the Food & Wine Festival! There’s nothing quite like drinking and eating your way around the world, but its even BETTER in the fall when you have so many more delicious options.

Now I warn you, this will probably be a long post, and by the end of it you’ll be starving, so I apologize in advance. One pro-tip for the Food & Wine Festival that we do, is save our snack credits from the Disney Dining Plan and use them all here! That way you get to try things from every country by using the two snack credits per day that you get on the plan!

Here are some food and beverages from the Food & Wine Festival that I have stood out:

1. “Le Cellier” Filet Mignon, Canada Booth: This is an ABSOLUTE must have. This is so delicious and juicy, and topped in truffle butter and wild mushrooms. This will have your taste buds screaming for more, and is quite possibly the best item to try for all of the Food & Wine Festival. This one is a more expensive “snack” as it is a cut of filet mignon, but the best part is you can use a Disney Dining Plan snack credit for this!

2. Chaucuterie in a Cone, Spain Booth: Those who know me know that I’m a huge fan of Chaucuterie boards, but this is a brand new delicious spin on Chaucuterie! Its a cone filled with everything that you would find on a chaucuterie board, like cheese, cured meats, olives and a herbed vinaigrette!

3. Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Frozen Wine Slush & Steamed Green Lip Mussels with Garlic Butter, New Zealand Booth: So two very important mentions for New Zealand. The Kim Crawford wine slush is absolutely amazing, and one of the best drinks that I had at the Festival. In the couple days that we spent at Food & Wine, we went back here a couple of times for another one, they were that good! Another great thing to mention is the Steamed Green Lip Mussels from the New Zealand booth, who doesn’t want mussels with garlic butter poured over them? Oh, and they also had breadcrumbs, but did I mention garlic butter?

4. Croissant aux Escargots and Le Passion Martini Slush, France Booth: Okay, so don’t freak out. Yes, Escargot is snails, BUT bear with me here. I am always up to try new things which is how I fell in love with this and now, every time I see “Escargot” on a menu, I order it. Its not just escargot served by itself. Its baked into a soft, flakey croissant, cooked with garlic and parsley. I eat this every time I go to Food & Wine Festival, and twice this past time. So please trust me on this one.

When it’s not Food & Wine Festival time, I usually order the grey goose slush, or the grand mariner slush while in the France pavillion. But during the Food & Wine Festival, they offer something even more delicious: “Le Passion Martini Slush”, which is passionfruit and cranberry juice and Grey Goose Le Citron vodka. It is absolutely delicious and extremely refreshing on a hot Floridian day.

Just wanted to add that in the picture below there is also  quiche which was delicious!

5. Bratwurst in a Pretzel Bun, Germany Booth: Nothing says German like a sausage, or is it beer? Or why not both? At the Germany booth, you need to try the Bratwurst in a pretzel bun. This used to be on a hard roll, but due to popular request, was released this year on a pretzel bun! Making it even better than previous years!

6. Sichuan Spicy Chicken, and Chicken Pot Stickers, China Booth: The Sichuan Spicy Chicken is not too spicy and really flavorful, and definitely a good dish to try out! The pot stickers are really delicious but I know you can find similar things during the year outside of Festival Times. I still never say no to a pot sticker though! We also tried the Black Pepper Shrimp with Garlic Noodles, I didn’t get a great photo but the shrimp were perfect and served on garlic noodles.

7. Taste of Greece, Greece Booth: While in Greece, why not get a sample of a few different items all at once? This option is $8 but you can use a Disney Dining Snack credit towards it. The “Taste of Greece” offers a Feta Cheese dip with pita, stuffed grape leaves with a lemon dill sauce and finally (don’t freak out) grilled octopus. All three of these options were really nice, and had the “fresh” feeling like a typical Greek menu. Even the octopus was good, it’s chewy but if you’ve had calamari before its the same idea texture wise! The Greek nachos are also super delicious, and are a vegetarian/vegan option! They are pita chips, and meatless sausage with tzatziki!

9. New England Lobster Roll, USA Booth: I regret to inform that I did not get a picture of this, but it is SO good. The bun itself is delicious, and when you add lobster to anything it is a dish worth having!

10. Grilled Sweet and Spicy Bush Berry Shrimp with Pineapple, Pepper, Onion and Snap Peas, Australia Booth: whoa, that’s a long one. If you like shrimp, this is a really nice dish to try. There are better seafood dishes at the Food & Wine but it is still really enjoyable.

Honestly, during the Food & Wine Festival there was no dish that I actually didn’t like at all. Some are definitely better than others, but there weren’t any that can’t be enjoyed.

While you are eating and drinking your way around the world, don’t forget to be on the look out for Remy (the rat from Ratatouille) who is hiding all over the World Showcase!

There are endless amounts of things to try around the world at the Food & Wine Festival, even all the regular options of the World Showcase are available (Margaritas from Mexico, anyone?)

Let me know some of the things that you tried at the Food & Wine Festival, and what your favorites are!!

  1. I have always loved the Food & Wine festival in the fall. I will be experiencing Flower & Garden for the first time this year. I’m interested in comparing the two and seeing which one I like better. Secretly, I think it will be Food & Wine but we will see…

    1. Its been a few years since I’ve been to the Flower & Garden Festival, its absolutely beautiful, but I still favor the Food & Wine Festival because who doesn’t want to eat and drink their way around the world? 🙂

  2. You’re killing me with these posts! I’ve got the craziest Disney stoke ever, and this isn’t helping! 😉 I kid, of course – I’m all for the Disney reminders. Our next trip is coming up at the end of October, beginning of November, so we’re going to be there for the last couple of weeks of Food & Wine – I plan on eating EVERYTHING. And then washing it down with a lot more of everything alcoholic. 🙂
