The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival makes the Horizon West Communities the Perfect Location

As Fall closes in around the U.S. the communities of Horizon West near Orlando, Florida are in the perfect location to maximize your enjoyment of Walt Disney World’s EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival.    The Festival dates for this year are from September 25, 2015 to November 16, 2015.

Here are my best suggestions for making the most of one of the year’s top events at Walt Disney World:

  1. Live close – five minutes is wonderful, but anywhere within an hour is great.

  2. Annual or Premium Annual are best as they include free parking and no blackout dates as offering discounts on merchandise and some dining experiences.   An added bonus is you can go as often as you like.

  3. Go multiple times – there is simply no way to enjoy the vast number of culinary, entertainment, and educational experiences in one day.

  4. Obtain a Festival banded gift card and preload it so all you have to do is walk up to each kiosk, order, and swipe your card.   Each time you will receive an updated receipt showing your new balance.   If you run out, no worries you can easily add more.

  5. Go on line and check the website, https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/epcot/epcot-international-food-and-wine-festival/ .   That will enable you to see the vast array of opportunities available and make the most of your time.

  6. You will want to sample so many of the culinary choices available to you, so build in down time by attending one of the educational workshops, or enjoy one of the wine or beer flights, or make your way to the American Gardens Theater in front of the American Adventure and enjoy an Eat to the Beat concert.   Better yet, to cool off, go inside the American Adventure Rotunda and enjoy the many education displays of Americana in refreshing air conditioning, and be sure to stay for a concert by America’s only premiere fulltime acapella choral group, the Voices of Liberty.   After the 15 minute concert you will also be invited to attend one of Disney’s best audioanimatronic shows, also called The American Adventure.   It is great!

  7. Stay well hydrated – drink plenty of water.   It is still warm in Florida this time of year.   (Hint: you can buy bottled water, but Disney’s entire potable water system is filtered so there is really no need, spend your money on all the great food and wine available at the festival.
