Booking for Epcot Food & Wine Festival Special Events Begins in August

There’s less than one month left before you can book tickets to the special events at Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival!

Along with the standard cooking demos and wine seminars, there are several new events and returning favorites that visitors can take advantage of. For 2012, Epcot is introducing the Marketplace VIP Access Chef Tour, which will offer 5 pre-selected dishes and 5 beverages to attendees as they tour the World Showcase Lagoon and hear behind-the-scenes stories from chefs. This event is held at 10:30 a.m. every Wednesday and costs $90 (plus tax and park admission.)

Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar, which recently opened in Epcot’s Italy Pavilion, have added an Italian Region Food & Wine Luncheon which will pair a variety of wines with fresh, casual dishes. This event will be held from noon to 2 p.m. every Wednesday and Saturday, and cost $75 (plus tax and park admission.)

Finally, the guest favorite Party for the Senses in the World ShowPlace Events Pavilion will be returning to the festival this year, but new ticket prices have emerged. Prices are:

  • $170 for reserved table on main floor
  • $270 for reserved table in Wine View Lounge
  • $145 for general admission

The reserved seating options give you the extra benefit of a special cocktail and early admission to the event. This event will be held on October 6, 13, 20, 27 and November 3.

You can book tickets for these special events beginning at 7 a.m. on August 14. Please visit for more information.
