The 2018 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is in full swing, and we all know what that means… Good food, delicious drinks, and AMAZING merchandise!
Every year at Walt Disney World there are a plethora of special events to choose from throughout the parks. From Halloween and Christmas Parties, Garden Festivals and even “Glow Parties” at Water Parks, there is just so much to choose from! But the one thing that I can’t wait for from each of these amazing events is the merchandise! I am a collector at heart, and each year there are a few certain pieces I absolutely must have. And of course, this year for Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival, the merchandise does not disappoint.
You can always find several options for cute t-shirts and sweatshirts, coffee mugs and glasses. And with the Food and Wine Festival, each year they release a new Dooney and Bourke purse option, but my personal “must have’ pieces, that I purchase every year from each event, are the Tervis cups, the salt and pepper shaker trash cans, and any possible Annual Passholder magnet I can find! Some of the character themes for 2018’s Festival are Chef Remy, Taste Your Way Around the World, Chef Mickey, Brews Around the World and Foodie Figment! There is just something so fun about these kitschy collector items that I must have them from every event!
If you are able to get down to Epcot this Fall for the Food & Wine Fest, be sure you check out all the merchandise options. They can be found at various locations around Epcot, such as the Welcome Center located inside the old Wonders of Life Pavilion. It is always great to get a peek into the unused buildings at WDW. Anyone remember Body Wars?
The 2018 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival runs from August 30 – November 12, 2018. Contact your Fairy Tale Concierge travel agent today to get in a last minute foodie trip this fall!
