I attended a media preview for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival last week. The popular festival kicks off this year on August 29th, the same day that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens to everyone at Disney’s Hollywood Studios! This is the 24th year for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and it runs a record 87 days this year. One major aspect of each Epcot festival is merchandise, and there really is something for everyone this year from pins to apparel (the vertical dip dye “Everything’s better with sprinkles” spirit jersey should be a huge hit) to Dooney & Bourke items. Minnie is a chef for the first time! We have a video featuring Guest Experience Manager Will Dasso explaining the merchandise as well as photos of many of the items.
Here is our 7 minute video and then some photos!
