While Disney fans expect magical moments every time they step into Disney Parks, the reality is that these memories flavor their experiences in their own home. From that morning coffee to a celebratory dinner, food and travel have a long reaching impact. With the 2023 Epcot Food and Wine merchandise, the family influence in the kitchen shines brightly.
Although there might not be a theme to this year’s food festival event, vibrancy seems to be the adjective that ties everything together. From the much talked-about pickle milkshake to the robust flavored chicken wings, the flavors are bold, exciting, and eye-catching.
While those new food items spark an interest, that concept of vibrancy can be seen across the food menus, Eat to the Beat Concert Series, and 2023 Epcot Food and Wine merchandise. Whether it is one of the classic American offerings enjoyed before a concert or a cheese filled journey throughout the park, bland and boring has been deleted from the conversation.
Every year, Epcot Food and Wine incorporates a new theme across its merchandise. From Chef Minnie to colorful Figment, iconic Disney characters weave their way through a variety of offerings. This year, Mirabel and the vibrant Encanto world is front and center in many of the choices.
The Disney Encanto Collection captivates the eye with the bold color combinations. Although donning the festive apron does not guarantee extra magic in those arepas, everyone will look good while cooking. The design might even be worthy to keep out as a kitchen décor.
In addition to that apron, there are a variety of serving utensils, glasses and more. The serving trays are perfect for that next sing-a-long movie night. Even if it is just a bowl of popcorn, the visual is compelling.
The other 2023 Epcot Food and Wine merchandise appeals to the entertaining foodies. From the tray with built-in wine glass holders to the picnic blanket, Disney Parks encourages guests to bring those flavorful moments outside. It does not necessarily mean recreating those Disney Chef dishes, but they can inspire people to be a little more creative with their offerings.
In some ways, the picnic idea is front and center throughout the collection. From the stacked hamburger coasters to the serve ware, it might not be a block party, but it is definitely time to enjoy the great outdoors.
Even the aspiring foodies can join in with the food fun. From lunch boxes to kitchen tools, the excitement to celebrate how food connects people is found at any age. Whether it is Chef Mickey or the Madrigal Family, there are plenty of ways to bring a taste of the 2023 Epcot Food and Wine Festival back home.
The 2023 Epcot Food and Wine Festival runs now through November 18. The event features a multitude of Marketplaces, Eat to the Beat Concert series and more. Disney heme park reservations are required and more information can be found on the Disney Parks website.
