Epcot Food and Wine

World ShowPlace Premium Events for 2016

July 1st, 2016
  |  by Mealtrip
Located just past Canada and before the UK pavilions at Epcot, you will find the entrance to the World ShowPlace building. This is "the" premium location for Food and Wine Events. If you're walking down the World ShowPlace courtyard to enter the building for an event, you're about to experience the best that the Food and Wine Festival has to offer. The space will host 11 events during the 2016 Food and Wine Festival, possibly more if special Disney Chase/Visa events are added to the calendar. Most upgraded "seating" categories sell out well in advance, so if you want to go at one of those levels, don't wait much past the first day of booking.

General booking begins on July 21st, 2016 at 7am EST
For Reservations, Call 407-939-3378
