BEHIND THE SCENES: ONE Day ‘Til the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Begins!

We love FOOD. And we’re guessing, since you’re reading the Disney FOOD Blog, you do, too!

Selections from the Spain booth at the 2021 Food & Wine Festival.

We bring you all KINDS of Disney information 365 days a year — from ranking the best Disney World hotels, to how-to guides for Disney Genie+, to what to pack in your park bag.

And while we LOVE helping you plan your WHOLE trip, there’s something very special about mid-July for us. July 14th marks the start of the annual EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. That’s right, we said FOOD.


Friends, THIS 👏 IS 👏 OUR 👏 SUPER 👏 BOWL 🏈. Our Monaco Grand Prix 🏎. Our FIFA World Cup ⚽. So we thought we’d take you behind the scenes with this DFB team on this Food & Wine Festival Eve!

Reporting Team

Our reporters are ready to head out to EPCOT as early as possible tomorrow. They’re bringing their food trays to carry all the portions they’ll be tasting, and they’ve cleared out their phone memory to take plenty of photos and videos for our website, YouTube channel, Tik Tok, Instagram, and other social platforms.


And they’re studying all of the booths, menus, and our DFB printables, which are also available right now for you!

Guidebook Team

AJ and our Guidebook editors work year-round on our DFB Guide to the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. We ensure that our book has ALL the planning information and tips we’ve gathered over decades of reporting on EPCOT festivals, as well as pictures and details of EVERY booth and EVERY food item.

Get this year’s version of the guide!

Our readers come back year after year to pick up our digital guidebook (we’ve sold more than 25,000 of them!), so they can carry the DFB Team along with them on their journey around World Showcase! Guidebook editors will be working through the night tomorrow to ensure the book has the most up-to-date information.
