Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Are Part of the Magic of Fall at Walt Disney World Resort

Today might be the official start of the Monstrous Summer at the Walt Disney World Resort, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look forward to the fun and festive happenings planned for this fall.

Of course, fall at Epcot means the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and this year’s event is planned for September 27 through November 11. Guests will have the chance to sample food from six continents at more than 25 food and beverage kiosks. New to the event this year is the Scottish Marketplace featuring beers, meads, Scotch, and authentic foods from the homeland of Princess Merida.

In addition to the food, guests have a chance to enjoy programs such as Party for the Senses, celebrity chef culinary demonstrations, and the nightly Eat to the Beat concert series. For all things Food & Wine, be sure to visit our friends at the Disney Food Blog for updates and news.

Over at the Magic Kingdom fall is celebrated at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party which begins on September 10 and runs through November 1 on 23 select dates. Party goers have a chance to dress up in their favorite costumes and enjoy “not so scary” fun including Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade, HalloWishes, and trick-or-treating throughout the park. Tickets for the event are on sale now.

And princess fan everywhere will be thrilled to know that a fall 2013 opening is planned for the Princess Fairytale Hall in New Fantasyland. This is the new home for Disney princesses to meet their “loyal subjects.” The castle-like entrance features stone walls and stained glass windows and the open gallery is where guests will find portraits of the princesses.

Other magical fall events include the 31st Night of Joy on September 6-7, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend on October 4-5, Disney’s Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend on November 8-9, the 38th Annual Festival of the Masters in Downtown Disney on November 8-10.
