From July 15th until November 20th, 2021, if you’re raring to travel abroad but your desired countries are still closed due to COVID-19, perhaps you will want to check out The 26th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. To attend, you will need to have both admission to Epcot, as well as reserve a place in the Disney Park Pass system.
Marketplaces such as Greece, Germany, Hawaii, and Islands of the Caribbean will be present, showing off food and drink commonly found in those parts of the world. Wine and beer aficionados will also have their shops at which to indulge in buying souvenirs.
Due to the pandemic, the Festival will be taking place in a somewhat modified format. For instance, due to frequent overcrowding at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, in order to properly maintain social distancing among Festival attendees, Epcot will instead host local musical acts spread throughout the day. Also, the number of global marketplaces will only be twenty, as opposed to thirty before the pandemic.
Epcot is known for its futuristic attractions as well as its permanent country pavilions, with Morocco, Japan, and the United Kingdom among the more popularly visited ones.
