It’s time to start planning for the 2022 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! Disney has announced this year’s festival will stretch 129 days between July 14 and November 19.
The 2022 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will include more than 25 Global Marketplaces (food booths), the return of the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, a scavenger hunt, and a whole bunch of new merchandise.
Disney notes that not all Global Marketplaces will open at the start of the festival. From their announcement:
Prepare your taste buds to go on an epicurean journey and discover new concepts and menu items at more than 25 Global Marketplaces located throughout EPCOT. Returning favorites will include The Swanky Saucy Swine, Appleseed Orchard, Hops & Barley, Earth Eats hosted by Impossible and Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE. Some Global Marketplaces will open a few weeks later, as well, to keep the 129-day event spicy.
For those keeping track at home, the 2022 Food & Wine Festival will begin just nine days after the 2022 Flower & Garden Festival ends. That means Diet Epcot (what some guests call Epcot without festivals) won’t even last two weeks this summer for those who prefer a more relaxed World Showcase.
Personally, we can’t wait for the Ireland booth and its Warm Chocolate Pudding to return. Which festival booth are you looking forward to from the Food & Wine Festival?
