Disney has announced dates for the 2022 EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. Guests can sip, savor, and stroll, beginning July 14, 2022. Can’t make it over the summer? That’s ok because the festival runs through November 19.

Walt Disney World Resort invites Guests to enjoy a “smorgasbord of culinary delights” and “prepare their taste buds to go on an epicurean journey and discover new concepts and menu items at more than 25 Global Marketplaces located throughout EPCOT.”

Guest favorites that will be returning to this year’s festival include The Swanky Saucy Swine, Appleseed Orchard, Hops & Barley, Earth Eats hosted by Impossible, and Shimmering Sips hosted by CORKCICLE. In addition to that, some Global Marketplaces will open a few weeks after the opening of the festival, just to keep things interesting during the 129-day event!
