Guests wishing to learn more about the fantastic gardening, landscaping, and plant integration at Epcot can make reservations for the three-hour walking tour led by Disney Horticulture experts. Each Gardens of the World Tour will take guests around World Showcase and explore how Disney selects, nurtures, and maintains authenticity with the plant life found in each country’s pavilion. Guests will also learn about edible trees and other plants as well as basics and tips for gardening at home. Each walking tour starts at 9 a.m. and is open to guests 12 years of age and older. Gardens of the World Tours are $85 plus tax and are offered on select days of the Epcot Food & Wine Festival.

Family Fun

Epcot Food & Wine Festival isn’t just for the adults. Families with kids of all ages will be able to enjoy the festival together with activities everyone is sure to love!

Character Dance Party

This year, Epcot will host a character Dance Party on Fridays and Saturdays during the festival. Take a break from all the sampling and get ready to boogie!

Ratatouille Hide ‘n’ Squeak Scavenger Hunt

The petite chef, better know as Remy, will return for the 2018 festival but it won’t be easy to spot him. Individuals and families can purchase a map and sticker set from the either Disney Trader, Pin Central, or World Traveler stores then set off in search of the friendly rat around World Showcase. Whether or not they find all of Remy’s hiding spots, guests can return to any of the three stores with their map and get a prize!

Interactive Playground

Energetic kids sometimes need a little something more than walking around the park. The creative teams that put together Epcot’s Festivals have also designed an interactive playground for families to enjoy together. Independent children can explore on their own, and those who are a little more cautious can discover the fun with their parents by their side.

Junior Chef Kitchen

This year Epcot will introduce a Junior Chef Kitchen program on Sundays during the festival. More details will be shared soon.

Epcot Food & Wine Festival Center

Guests wishing to enhance their Epcot Food & Wine Festival experience can stop by the Festival Center to attend seminars, purchase special merchandise, cookbooks, alcohol and additional food sample parings.
