BREAKING: DATES ANNOUNCED for Another Disney World Food and Wine Event!

We’re sure you’re aware of all the great festivals you can attend at EPCOT, and we bet you’re very familiar with the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, which is set to happen this year from August 29th through November 23rd.

But did you know that there’s ANOTHER Food and Wine festival at Disney World? This one doesn’t even require you to buy a park ticket! It’s the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic, and dates for this festival have officially been announced.

This year’s Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic will run from November 15th through November 16th. Although this event doesn’t require a park ticket, it is a ticketed event, but for the price of a ticket, you get UNLIMITED food and beverages from restaurants at the Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve. Yep, all you can eat and drink! In 2023, the event ran from 5:30-9PM on both days

Food and Wine Classic

In addition to booths for each of the Swan & Dolphin’s restaurants, there are also themed areas with even more food and drinks. Last year’s themed areas included The Beer Garden, For the Love of Florida, Carnival Corner, and Chinatown.

For the Love of Florida

The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin has not yet released ticket prices for this year’s event, but last year, tickets were $185 per person for unlimited food and beverage tastings on the Causeway. You’ll also find live entertainment performing in the Dolphin clamshell fountain each evening. The event also includes seminars you can attend for an additional cost on wine tasting, pasta making, craft cocktails, and more!

Last year, the festival also offered two VIP experiences: VIP Champagne and Dessert Party at the Swan Reserve and a Master Sommelier-led Grand Tasting. Note that these are additional paid options you can add. Guests planning to stay at the Swan and Dolphin for the event may call 888-828-8850 to learn about room discounts, too. Note that you’ll still have to buy your tickets separately.

This event is great if you want to spend an evening outside the parks indulging in some delicious food and wine. Menus for the Food & Wine Classic will eventually be released, too, so you can plan what you want to eat ahead of time. We’ll be sure to share those as soon as they’re available. There is a LOT of food to try (and again, you can try it all with your ticket to the event), so we recommend not filling up at the parks the day you plan on attending.
