For Disney Parks fans who crave a taste of foods from around the globe, the 2023 Epcot Food and Wine Festival returns with an early start. The favorite annual event begins on July 27, 2023 and runs through November 18, 2023. The 115 day run gives Disney fans plenty of opportunity to sip, savory and repeat during the festival run.

While the dates for the 2023 Epcot Food and Wine Festival have been revealed, everyone will have to wait a little longer for the menus to be released. Although there will be plenty of festival favorites, the new bites often get the most attention. Whether that first taste is familiar or something totally avant-garde, everyone will leave satisfied.

Given the early start date and long run, there is plenty of time to visit and visit again during the festival run. Whether it is bright acid forward fish dish during the first couple of weeks or a warm, comforting cheese dish in the fall, it can be hard to pick a single favorite.

One idea that Epcot has employed recently is having a marketplace with a rotating menu. With the dishes changing every few weeks, it is like presenting a new experience throughout the festival run. For those diehard Disney Parks fans, they are as excited about these offerings as they are about the opening day feast.

In addition, the Eat to the Beat concert series will return. Whether guests book a dining package or try to grab an open seat, the combination of good music and delicious food is always a winning combination.

Although everyone seems to love eating and drinking around the world, Epcot is going through a big transformation. Even though it might seem like those green walls have become permanent fixtures, soon the expansive, reimagined space will take over. From return of a favorite nighttime spectacle to the new Moana inspired water space, there are plenty of reasons to make another visit to the Disney theme park.
