Walt Disney World Offering Hands-On Experiences at the 2016 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

When you come to this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, you’ll need more than just your tastebuds. Your hands can play a key part in your Festival experience – and not just for holding your dishes. You can bring home some know-how from Disney and celebrity chefs, bakers and mixologists.

For the first time, the most delicious time of year at Walt Disney World has expanded into the resorts, with family-friendly experiences like Culinary Adventures with a Master Chef at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, where you’ll create dishes under the direction of a Disney chef. Budding culinary stars as young as nine-years-old can participate.

In Festival Center workshops like Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It! you can learn the secret of making sushi from celebrity Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Other classes include pasta making, wine pairing and crafting cocktails.

If your interests are more consuming than creating, you’ll have plenty to enjoy. Almost half of the dishes at the global marketplaces are new or reimagined, like the Greek vegan nachos.

Premium events like Party for the Senses and Rockin’ Burger Block Party feature new live entertainment.

And for pint-size foodies, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak encourages exploration around World Showcase as they search for hidden statuettes of Chef Remy (a great reason to “eat around the world” during your scavenger hunt!) with a sweet surprise once you find them all.

Some experiences are an extra ticketed event. Find out more at epcotfoodfestival.com.
