Food and Wine Festival is coming! Come on everybody get your wine on!
The longest and most popular festival at Epcot and Walt Disney World runs from August 29 to November 23, 2019. This year it will include over 30 kitchens from around the world.
We have an amazing new look at some of the merchandise that will be available at this year’s festival and also some fun Passholder exclusives. Let’s jump right in.
Annual Passholder will have two opportunities to gather a new passholder magnet at this year’s festival! These magnets are complimentary and are available on a first come first served basis at Mouse Gear or at Disney Traders. Passholders must present their valid annual pass as well as a photo I.D. to get their magnet.
August 29 to October 14, 2019
- Chef Minnie takes center stage for the first half of the festival with her own magnet.
October 15 to November 23, 2019
- The first ever Chef Remy magnet will be available for the second half of the festival.
Also available after four park visits to Epcot during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival will be a complimentary Chef Minnie wooden coaster set! If you remember back to last year’s festival, a similar gift was available for Annual Passholders after four visits in the form of a small Chef Mickey cutting board.
We mentioned in a previous post that a new character greeting was coming to Epcot and we have news now that this is actually a special Disney Annual Passholder exclusive character greeting. Winnie the Pooh will be meeting at Christopher Robin’s room in the United Kingdom pavilion at Epcot beginning on August 29.
But wait! There’s more! Annual Passholders (AP) are also getting an exclusive gift card offer. With the purchase of this AP exclusive $100 Disney Gift Card AP’s will also receive a $10 digital bonus to use at select Table-Service restaurants at Epcot. These restaurants include:

And yes, Passholders will still be able to also use their 10% discount in addition to the $10 digital coupon at these dining locations. This special gift card can be purchased at Mouse Gear, Disney Traders, the Bridge Kiosk or Port of Entry and there is a limit to one gift card per transaction.
Passholder Exclusive Merchandise & Discounts For the Fest:
In addition to everything we laid out above, there is always Passholder exclusive merchandise available during the festival. These typically include apparel such as shirts and sometimes hats, a Magic Band, and special exclusive limited edition pins.
