Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

It’s almost time to book events for the 2012 International Food and Wine Festival!  Here’s a couple of dates to keep in mind:

  • If you are an annual passholder, a Tables in Wonderland member, or a DVC Member, you can begin booking seminar and demo events on August 10th.  There will be a $2.00 discount per event for those that occur Monday through Thursday.
  • The remainder of events, and general public booking, will begin on August 14th at 7:00 a.m.

To book an event, call 407-WDW-Fest (939-3378).   It appears some events will be available for online booking as well.
