The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing and celebrating it’s 20th year. This milestone celebration has brought some wonderful new merchandise to the Festival Center and various locations throughout the park to commemorate the event.
The Festival Center located between Universe of Energy and Mission: SPACE pavilions in Future World is not only home to several experiences including the culinary demonstrations and the Intermission Cafe, it is also where you can find new Food & Wine Festival merchandise and a wine shop. This is also a great place to pick up the new scavenger hunt called Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak.
Chef Figment is the plush of the year, everyone’s favorite purple dragon has donned a chef’s hat and is ready to cook for you! This year’s Figment coffee mug will not arrive until later during the festival.
This year, there are three distinct art designs representing the Food & Wine Festival – the World Showcase logo, favorite Disney characters dressed as chefs, and Brews Around the World. The three art designs can be found on apparel, home décor, drink ware and other goods at this location.
Here’s a look at the new gift card for this year’s event. The wristlet gift card makes it easy to taste your way around the world. Simply load your card with your desired amount and swipe it at the Marketplace booth locations.
The cute little salt and pepper shakers feature World Showcase and the new Food & Wine Festival logo. They also give a nod to the roaming and talking trash can, “Push” that has been retired from Tomorrowland Area at Magic Kingdom Park.
New kitchen merchandise is also a fan favorite. Dish towels and bottle openers featuring the “Taste Your Way Around the World” logo are a bit hit so far. As well as the new cookbook featuring 187 pages of recipes from the festival – past and present and 50 pages of history by Pam Brandon and the Disney Chefs. This new cookbook is a must-have for all fans of the cuisine found at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
A specially designed charm will thrill Pandora fans this year. This sterling silver charm with white and black enamel features Chef Mickey, and it will be released during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Disney will offer a limited release tee-shirt on the Disney Parks online store from September 25 through October 1. You can order the shirt by visiting DisneyStore.com/ParkEvents. Allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.
And last but not least, the new designs commemorating the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival from Dooney & Bourke. The colors, the designs, the styles….Wow! Everything makes these bags absolutely perfect and one item at the top of my list! I see a letter carrier in my near future!
With all the new goodies, it’s hard to choose! What’s your favorite item so far?
