Considering Disney’s Epcot features a World Showcase, with foods, clothing and samples of cultures from 11 countries – 11 countries in one day, they like to say – it is apropos they put on one of the biggest food festivals in the U.S.
Requiring its own ticket in addition to a park entrance ticket, visitors can enjoy all-you-can-eat dining and tastings during the festival, which lasts, if you can believe it, up to 75 days! The event features dishes from more than 25 different nations and hundreds of chefs, and has served up more than a million food samplings, plus hundreds of thousands of glasses of beer and wine.
More than just food, the event features cooking demonstrations, book signings with celebrity chefs, concerts by big-name artists, wine and beer tastings, and much, much more – this is Disney, after all.
