NEWS: New Details Announced for 2019 Epcot Food & Wine Festival Including Eat to the Beat Schedule

With just two months to go until the opening of the Epcot Food & Wine Festival, Disney is giving us a lot of things to look forward to. In addition to the full menus (which you can look over by clicking here), we’ve got some new information about the new  Marketplaces, a new Tailgate Tasting for Monday Night Football, the expansion of the Disney du Jour Dance Party, and the line-up for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. Catch all the details below.





 

Here are all the details from Disney Cast Member Thomas Smith:

Counting down to August 29 and the launch of the 24th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, we have more exciting news about sips, bites and entertainment on tap for this longer-than-ever, 87-day event!

Starting with sips, plan to check out the new Appleseed Orchard Marketplace which will offer a unique variety of craft brews, ciders, wines and lite bites. This new marketplace will be located next to Le Cellier Steakhouse in World Showcase. As we shared earlier, the “O Canada!” film will be refreshed with new footage and a projection-system upgrade for a visually-enhanced experience. While this behind-the-scenes work is in progress, the theater will transform to an all-new festival destination offering a cool respite.

At the Appleseed Orchard Marketplace, you will be able to pair apple-inspired beers, ciders and cocktails like the Apple Blossom Sky while nibbling on Charcuterie and Cheese. Brews, ciders and wines will be offered individually or as flights. The kid-friendly Frozen Apple Pie drink will inspire a chill stroll to your next stop.

More sweet and savory treats will debut at the brand-new The Alps Marketplace, where you can conjure a snow-capped setting while dipping into your dish of Warm Raclette Swiss Cheese with Baby Potatoes, Cornichons and Baguette, or Venison Stew with Crushed Potatoes paired with a refreshing Frozen Rosé.

Also new this year, families can enjoy Emile’s Fromage Montage where they can sample a variety of delicious cheeses served in inventive ways. Purchase any five cheese dishes from the official Global Marketplaces listed in the Festival Passport and make sure to collect a stamp for each cheese dish purchased. Once you’ve collected all five stamps, bring the stamped Festival Passport to Shimmering Sips for a complimentary specialty cheesecake unique to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

Tailgaters, take note! You can pair your football mania with festival fun, no grills or picnic baskets required. Bookings start today for the new Tailgate Tasting hosted by ESPN’s Monday Night Football, available select Sundays starting September 8 – November 17. The 45-minute program will pair gridiron grub with a beverage tasting inspired by the cities of pro teams playing each Monday night. Even better, you’ll learn how to prepare the dishes for your next tailgate party!

We told you previously about the anticipated week-long expansion of the Disney du Jour Dance Party, with weekend Radio Disney artist appearances. Sundays through Thursdays, a DJ will lead the interactive fun. Fridays and Saturdays will feature performances by Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country artists and appearances from a few of your favorite Disney characters. Plan now to catch headliners Meg Donnelly (“With U,” Disney Channel’s Zombies) Aug. 30-31, Jenna Raine (“A Letter to Me”) Sept. 13-14, Sky Katz (“Like This,” Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home) Oct. 11-12 and JAGMAC (“Like a Band”) Oct. 18-19 – you’ll want to dance the night away with family and friends!

And more NEW acts are joining the roster for the festival’s longest-ever Eat to the Beat Concert Series, returning this year from Aug. 29 – Nov. 19. Check out the below, and be sure to save the dates for returning guest favorite, 98° (“Give Me Just One Night”) Oct. 7-9, and newcomers BBMak (“Back Here”) on Nov. 15-16 and the Spanish Harlem Orchestra (“Un Gran Dia en El Barrio”) Nov. 17-18.

Now, more than ever, it’s time to plan your visit to the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. For more information or to make reservations, visit TasteEpcot.com or call 407-939-3378.

About Chad & Cindy Nykamp

After years of multiple Walt Disney World vacations, Cindy and Chad's dream of living in Orlando came true in 2010. After friends and family made them their go-to-people for Walt Disney World advice, Cindy and Chad launched DisneyLists.com in August 2015 to share their knowledge and love of Disney. Chad and Cindy have been Disney World Annual Passholders for years, DVC members, together have raced more than 70 runDisney races, and particularly love cruising on the Disney Cruise Line. Chad and Cindy also regularly represent DisneyLists.com at Walt Disney World media events. While attending these events, they get an insiders view of all the new things that have come to Walt Disney World. These experiences have helped them gain knowledge and expertise they happily pass on to their followers. They still can't believe how lucky they are to have such an amazing opportunity and will continue to share Disney with anyone who will listen!
