• An annual tradition


Orlando - The 18th Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is underway at the Walt Disney World Resort. The 46-day festival, which runs until Nov. 11, takes guests on a global tasting tour.

Fresh for 2013
Scotland Marketplace
Designed by Walt Disney Imagineering features traditional dishes with a twist including Scottish salmon, vegetarian haggis and beverages including a Loch Lomond cocktail and Scotch whisky flight from Glenfiddich Whisky. Scottish partners have worked with Disney to develop cuisine with a distinctly Scottish origin or theme to delight guests’ tastebuds. The Brazil Marketplace returns by popular demand with an exciting new menu that includes Crispy Pork Belly with black beans and Xingu Black Beer. Terra, which debuted last year, returns with vegan favorite Trick’n Chick’n Curry.
