The place where it all begins for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is the Festival Welcome Center. It is open daily from 9:00am until the park closes. It is located near Future World, between Mission: SPACE and the Universe of Energy Pavilion. The Welcome Center is where you can pick up your Marketplace Discovery Passport, which will be your guide around the world at the Festival. Special events take place at the welcome center all day long. Some of the things that you might find include celebrity meet and greets, book and bottle signings, cooking demonstrations and more. There are specialty shops and those of age can sample at the Festival Center Wine Shop. You can also attend a taste seminar or grab a meal at the Intermissions Café Hosted by Kobrand™.
The Festival Welcome Center is also where several of the special events are held. Here you will find the Authentic Taste Seminars Hosted by Driscoll’s® Only The Finest Berries™ and the Chocolate Experience: From the Bean to the Bar Hosted by Ghirardelli® Chocolate Company. The popular Home Entertaining Seminars Hosted by HGTV are also held at the Welcome center. The 30 minute seminars are hosted by celebrity designers and take place at the Vineyard Stage.
