The Disney Parks Blog posted some interesting news this week regarding this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which runs from September 28 to November 12, 2012.
They are adding two new marketplaces, the TERRA Marketplace, which will offer vegan menu items (I have a few vegan friends who will be happy to hear this) and the FLORIDA Marketplace, which will introduce fresh twists on regional flavors.
Also new for 2012 are Marketplace Chef Tours. Each Wednesday, festival chefs will host a walking-and-tasting tour around World Showcase with stops at several international marketplaces, where you will get to taste five marketplace dishes and five beverage items, like beer, wine and cocktails, as well as learn a few culinary secrets. This sounds like a great addition to the festival, and it will be interesting to see how the stops are chosen. Perhaps they will go with a particular “theme” each week. We’ll know soon enough as the festival is not too far away now!
