2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival Booth Menus, Photos & Reviews
This Global Marketplace guide shares prices, reviews, and photos of every dish on ALL booth menus at the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. Basically, everything you’ll need to know about every snack & dessert at Walt Disney World’s flagship foodie event, along with 100+ food & beverage photos.
The 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World will run from mid-July until November 18, 2023. See our Guide to the 2023 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival for everything you need to know, including savvy strategy for beating the crowds, saving money, and best enjoying the event.
Global Marketplaces at the festival span 6 continents throughout World Showcase pavilions. As with last year, a handful of the Global Marketplaces will not debut at the start of the event, and will instead open about a month or so later. The “heart” of the 2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival will be from October through its end in November, and that’s also when crowds will be biggest.
Reviewing the menus below, you’ll notice (mostly) lots of returning favorites, and only one new booth. In a normal year, around 75% of the dishes are returning favorites, and 25% are new. This year, it’s unclear if that distribution will be higher or lower since Walt Disney World has not yet released the 2023 EPCOT Food & Wine Festival menus yet.
As such, this booth guide is useful if you want to get a jumpstart on “research” or building anticipation, but it’s not a final listing of menus. Once the 2023 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival starts, we’ll spend the first several days of the event eating everything. Literally. We’ve done that for the past decade, and the “tradition” continues in 2023. As always, this is a work-in-progress–an arduous task sacrificing waistline and wallet, but someone has to do it!
These links to each of the Global Marketplace booths offer menus, food photos, capsule reviews, and some of our picks. Each one opens in a new tab, so you can click away and start planning your culinary tour of EPCOT…

If you’re starting to plan now or will be going early on, it will definitely be helpful to make a rough list of what you might want to try so that you can form a tentative plan of attack. The worst plan for Food & Wine Festival is no plan, as meandering aimlessly perusing the menus as you go will waste time and lead to backtracking and extra time in line.
One of our principle complaints about Food & Wine Festival over the years is that you can spend a ton of money and not really leave feeling full. Suffice to say, it’s an absolute requirement that you either go to the Epcot Food & Wine Festival with a surplus of Disney Dining Plan snack credits, or the understanding that you are going to spend at least double (maybe triple) what you’d spend on a counter service meal for a similarly filling experience. Nevertheless, Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival is a ton of fun, and hopefully these menus assist in your planning for the annual event!

Will there be any demonstrations or guest chefs this year?
Epcot is big. For the uninitiated, it would be great if you added a general location note (if known) for each of the booths. Thanks!
I am very pleased to see some great small brewery craft beer selections. I’m somewhat unimpressed when I browse the *normal* WDW beer list, compared to what I think are robust offerings at DLR. We have our own version of this festival, of course, but it’s like Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival’s infant nephew who somehow is best friends with Guy Fieri. I’m hoping some of these beers can be rotated in on a year-round basis. I think they also pair extraordinarily well with the food offerings. A lot of thought was put into these.
For those curious how to pair beer with food, I, an expert on culinary beer pairings, provide you a free guide:
1. Eat food.
2. Drink beer.
As I said, a lot of thought went into these pairings, I am impressed.
I understand some booths are only open on Saturdays. DO you know which ones are only opened on weekends and not during the week???
Waffles, Spain, and the Alps are only open Friday through Sunday and holidays.
Flavors from Fire’s schedule varies.
Please check your link to the Wine and Dine menu. I’d like to see your review but the link is for last year’s menu.
Thanks Tom, based on your advice from previous years, we planned out which booths we wanted to visit and what foods we wanted to try. We just finished our visit which was from 9/6 thru 9/14. We went to EPCOT three days and sampled a lot from the booths, using up most of our snack credits on the dining plan. This was easy because we NEVER encountered any wait. Seeing Lauren Daigle as part of the eat to the beats concert series was a huge bonus!! My wife’s favorite by far was easily the baked shrimp and scallop scampi dip from Coastal Eats (she had it several times). I unfortunately prefer the sweets and really enjoyed #1 Maple Bourbon Cheesecake (Cheese Studio), #2 Waffle and Berries (Belgium), #3 Liquid Nitro (Chocolate Studio), #4 Pasta Gratin (Germany). Honorable mentions to Butternut Squash Ravioli (Wine N Dine Studio) and Shimmering Strawberry soft serve (Shimmering Sips – my wife called it my Pretty Pretty Princess Sparkles Cone, but I didn’t care, I thought it was delicious!
I’m a first timer for the FWF! We have one day that we can attend, opening day! So, I wondered a few things
1) what time do the booths open
2) you mentioned we can use snack credits, can you use a quick service credit, get three snacks AND a beverage? I would happily use the QSC for three snacks, but I sure would love my alcoholic beverage too.
3) I wondered if there is a top 10 list of FWF snack credit uses… I see the top ten of all things, but not just for those of us that’s ill be saving our snack credits.
Thank you for all of your hard work and information
Thanks for the info on the menu’s for 2019! We were there last year, not specifically for FWF, but we were not all that impressed with most of the food offerings. I see some for this year that I can’t wait to try in September.
Greece?? Having gone to Food and Wine last year, the Greek nachos are my number one must have again. So disappointed if there isn’t a Greek booth. Sigh
I can only take the lack of a Greek booth in 2019 as a sign that the announcement of a Greece pavilion in the International Showcase is imminent. Otherwise I will cry. We brought you Democracy and the entire foundation of Western Civilization and this is the thanks we get? Maybe our voices will be heard after our sit-in at Topolino’s Terrace until it is re-christened ‘Taso’s Taverna’?
please tell me there will be a wedding chapel at the Greek pavilion
Thanks for the great info! So we booked our trip for the first week in September- long before we realize Star Wars is opening that week!! UGH we are NOT star wars fans. Do you think the crowds will stay at HS, or give up in dispair over wait times – or be forced to leave due to hitting park capacity- and come to Epcot? The last thing I want is angry tired star wars fans clogging up Epcot. We are considering pushing the trip back over this. Thoughts?
i’m not an expert, but my gut is telling me that the diehards coming for SWGE opening aren’t interested in the other parks. kids still have to go back to school, so it’s not going to be a lot of families who are planning a trip just to see SW. if there are families, it’s likely to be those people who had trips planned before the opening was announced (like me). most of the rest of those people will likely wait for both rides to be open. the people that are going to be there for opening are bloggers, media, SW diehard fans, and some locals on the weekends. i really don’t see the media or the diehards spending any time at the other parks.
When eating at the booths are the ingredients easily available for allergy purposes? Wondering if they are able to accommodate as easily as the quick service restaurants.
Brooke, my daughter has a peanut allergy but is a very adventurous eater. Disney has got this down and you will NOT have a problem. They have books at every booth and if they don’t there is a chef not far away that will come to speak with you. We specifically go to F&W for her to eat safely “around the world” They deal with ALL allergies too not just peanuts. Go and have fun!!!
Thanks for your posts! We are taking a quick one-night trip to do the Halloween Party at MK but I didn’t realize the Food and Wine Festival was going on as well. Do you think that if we have to be at the airport by 3:30pm it is worth trying to do 9am to 2:30 at Epcot? I can’t decide. Are there any options outside of Epcot to get a little of the Festival feel?
Personally I would suggest maybe 9am to 1:30 or 2:00. Orlando traffic is really hit or miss. Still, this is my favorite event of the year so I’m biased, you should definitely go!
I have been going to the FAWF for years. I think I will be passing this year, Thanks to your awesome reviews, I think I will save the $240 park admission and go to DS for my own food and drink crawl!
The Flower festival is my favorite and I ate at EVER booth last year! Loved all the food.
World showcase doesn’t typically open til 11 am
I love your blog! I have basically copied your exact itinerary for each park for our trip coming up in October! The Food and Wine Festival suggestions are extremely helpful! I was wondering when you will be putting the new booth suggestions up for 2017?
Thanks for all the great info. Will be there in November and look forward to the festival. What are the average prices for the food? I am trying to figure out a budget for the evening.
It seems like most things are around $5. I found prices on disneyfoodblog.com
When will you be going to Food and Wine? I am dying to get your reviews for the new menus/booths!
We are heading out in September! Cant wait!
As far as value, I feel like for $50 you can get a table service meal for one, or around 10 food items from the festival. It takes longer to eat and spend $50 at the festival. (Disclaimer: I’m not buying alcohol, and haven’t seen this year’s prices.)
I’ve read alot of your reviews and many suggest avoiding if paying out of pocket. What are a few dont miss even if paying out of pocket?
Thank you for the breakdown and pictures. This will be my first time attending the Food & Wine fest, and thinking stomach 1st, you are helping my eat around the world game plan. Just need to work in more EPCOT days than I initially had. ha.
Is there one link where I can see your top 10 favorite items?
Tom, I’m curious to see your Top 10 list as well!

Haha after I typed all that I found this….
First off, obsessed with your blog(s). Absolutely LOVE your photos, your nighttime photography is especially beautiful, absolutely stunning pictures! I rave to anyone who I hear is going to Disney to please read your blog because it’s amazing!! haha 🙂
Anyway – Epcot Food & Wine is my new planning obsession. I’m obsessed with food + Disney + drinking + Epcot so basically losing my mind just reading about all the wonderfulness… my question is this though: Do you have any idea when they start to release more details re: celebrity chefs, music line-ups, etc.? Do they do it months and months in advance or really wait until it’s down to the time of the Fest? I want to be able to book the room, plan the vacay, etc., but would hate to find out that a favorite chef would be there a different day then I chose to go….. I stalked some blogs from the years pass to see when they posted details but it’s hard to tell exactly when these details come out – Sorry for this long drawn out comment haha but just thought maybe you’d know/have a better idea than me when they would hopefully release precious details!!!
Thank you 🙂
Details will likely start trickling out in May, with much more info coming out by July.
