We’re less than a month away from the date to book your favorite ticketed events at the 17th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.
Along with wine and mixology seminars and culinary demos, we can’t wait to try a couple of the new experiences for 2012. The Marketplace VIP Access Chef Tour begins at 10:30 a.m. every Wednesday, with tastes from selected marketplaces around World Showcase Lagoon and behind-the-scenes stories from the chefs. You get five (pre-selected) dishes and five beverages (wine, beer and cocktails) on the tour, which takes about two hours. Cost is $90 (plus tax and park admission).
The Italy Pavilion is also adding a new Italian Regional Food & Wine Luncheon in the recently opened Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar, pairing wines with casual, authentic dishes. The leisurely luncheons will be from noon-2 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. Cost is $75 (plus tax, gratuity included, park admission required). Italy will continue its popular series of International Food & Wine Festival events at Via Napoli, as well as the exquisite White Truffle Lunch on November 4 this year, in Tutto Italia Ristorante.
The extravagant Party for the Senses in the World ShowPlace Events Pavilion is back, this year with a new tier of pricing – a ticket for a reserved table on the main floor ($170 plus tax, gratuity included, park admission required). A reserved table in the premium Wine View Lounge is $270 plus tax (gratuity included, park admission required), and general admission is $145 plus tax (gratuity included, park admission required). Both of the reserved seating options also include a specialty cocktail and early admission at 7:15 p.m. This year’s Party for the Senses dates are October 6, 13, 20, and 27, and November 3.
