What is EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival? 

For travelers who have never been, EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival is a recurring annual event allowing visitors to eat and drink their way across six different continents in the World Showcase and three additional lands: World Celebration, World Discovery, and World Nature. No matter where one walks, Global Marketplaces can be found scattered throughout the theme park, hosting a myriad of delicacies and libations to entice curiosity and taste buds.

How Do I Get Front-Row Seats? 

All shows are included with daytime admission into EPCOT. However, if festival guests want to secure a better seat for any of the above performances, they can do so by reserving an Eat to the Beat Dining Package. Starting July 9th, visitors will be able to secure a dining package, available Friday through Monday. A dining package reservation grants guests a complete meal at participating sit-down restaurants. After their meal, guests are given a seating badge with the specific date and time of their show. This is then presented at the entrance to the amphitheater in front of the American Pavilion before the start of the concert.
