2024 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Dates, Details Announced

Disney has finally dropped the dates for the fan favorite and longest running EPCOT festival! The 2024 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival takes place World August 29 through November 23.

New This Year

CommuniCore Hall will open on June 10 in the center of World Celebration, finally completing the EPCOT renovation.

And, once the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival begins, the new space will serve as the festival hub. Disney has teased the promise of “more food and beverages and more entertainment to come” when talking about CommuniCore Plaza and Inspiration Gardens. But most importantly, since this festival runs during the hottest months of the year, it will provide a much needed brand new cool indoor space for you and your family to recharge.

Returning Favorites

The Eat to the Beat Concert Series is returning this year, featuring both local talents and globally renowned performers at the America Gardens Theatre. Additionally, the Eat to the Beat Dining Package, which offers priority seating for concerts along with a meal at select EPCOT restaurants, is anticipated to return, although specific pricing and details about participating restaurants have yet to be announced.

Also returning is my personal favorite – Emile’s Fromage Montage. This is a cheese-centric challenge where you need to purchase a certain number of qualifying dishes (marked on the menus), and get your festival passport stamped. After your enjoy all the cheesy goodies, you turn in your stamps for your prize which is usually more dairy goodness.

We’ll keep you updated as Disney announces even more details about the 2024 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, so stay tuned.

Disney dropped a few teasing details about festival food and merch in their announcement today.
