Health insurance provider Florida Blue has announced a multi-year relationship with Walt Disney World, and will start by giving residents of 55+ communities a virtual Taste of EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.

What’s Happening:

  • Florida Blue, one of Florida's leading health insurers, has formed a multi-year relationship as an Official Sponsor of Walt Disney World Resort to provide engaging and unique experiences to guests at EPCOT as well as in their homes.
  • The relationship kicks off this month, providing residents of select 55+ communities an opportunity to bring a Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival into their homes through a virtual event featuring culinary demonstrations with a Disney chef, special musical guests and other magical Disney experiences.
  • The relationship will expand next year as Florida Blue and Disney team up to bring EPCOT guests unique experiences inside the park, as well as special opportunities for residents at select 55+ communities. Details on these exciting offerings will be available at a future date.
  • As one of the state's leading health insurers, Florida Blue provides health plan options for every stage of life, including Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement and Medicare Part-D plans for older adults as well as individual and family plans and employer group plans for companies of all sizes.
  • This isn’t the first time Florida Blue has partnered with Walt Disney World and EPCOT, back in 2012 they hosted the Innoventions exhibit, “Habit Heroes,” which was the subject of controversy and shut down for retooling and reopened in 2013 where it ran in Innoventions West until 2016.
