I recently attended the media preview for the 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, courtesy of the nice folks at Disney media relations, and I wanted to share what I saw – and ate – with you!

The food looks and tastes delicious as always, and there are even some new dishes on the menu! Eat and drink your way around the world with stands in World Showcase and Future World.

Let’s take a look at the 2019 Food and Wine Festival food!

Find out what’s new this year!

The festival kicks off Thursday, August 29th and runs every day until November 23rd, so you have plenty of time to check out the festival and try the food! One of the best ways to experience the International Food and Wine Festival is in combination with the free dining package, which is offered this year between September 1st and September 18th and November 17th and November 27th. Most of the Food and Wine menu items qualify for snack credits, and you can trade your meal credits for snack credits.

The festival is included with your park admission, so the only thing you’ll pay extra for is the food!

Looking forward to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival?
