Eat To The Beat: Spice It Up with The Musical Flavors of Epcot

Let's talk about one of Walt Disney World's tastiest festivals: the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival!

Not only does Epcot turn into a haven for my gastronomy lovers but it's filled with an entire world of flavor! It's like taking a culinary tour across 6 continents without having to leave the United States, how cool is that?!

While you're savoring unique spices and essence around the World Showcase, you can also enjoy some hot beats near Epcot's American Pavillion.

Spice up your Epcot visit by taking in a show by local and popular performers. Eat to the Beat at Epcot's Food and Wine Festival gives you to discover an all-star lineup for literally any musical taste!
