With the closing of the 2016 International Flower & Garden Festival, Disney has recently announced details for the 2016 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival this fall. From September 16th through November 14th (a record 62 days. Disney loves adding on to the F&W Festival and I know we couldn’t be more pleased), guests will be able to sample delicious food offerings, attend live concerts, and taste, of course, wine from all over the world.
