As strange as this year has been, it’s about to get even stranger. Epcot has re-opened for the first time since mid-March, and with it comes the Taste of Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Since the festival debuted, I felt it was time to look at the Food and Wine booths, menus, and prices.
Below you’ll find a look at each booth with its menu and prices. In addition, there are separate links to review the different foods we tried where applicable.
Given the circumstances of this year and the lack of crowds on opening week, I don’t know how many of you will be planning a trip to attend the festival. The last thing I expected to be doing was covering this event in mid-July during the park’s opening.
And I’ll be pretty frank with you the local economy here is tremendously suffering. More so than in other places I’ve personally been in the last few months. But I’ll have some more thoughts on that in the coming weeks.
2020 Epcot Taste of Food and Wine Festival
At this time, the Epcot’s 2020 Taste of Food and Wine Festival began on July 15th, but there is no end date yet. Unfortunately, the popular Eat to the Beat concert series is canceled for this year’s festival. However, the America Garden Theater is offering performances throughout the day. You might see Mariachi Cobre and the JAMMitors.
I was looking forward to seeing a few of the topiaries left up from Flower and Garden. These were supposed to help blend in some of the Flower and Garden Festival that never really got to take off.
As I update this review, I have to let you know that was a bit of a disappointment. I encountered two topiaries, Remy in France and Bambi, and friends.
Now for the food items at this year’s festival. Food is something that brings everyone together, even in this socially distanced world. So with no further adieu, here are the booths and menus.

Epcot Food and Wine Menus
Next, I’ve prepared a list of each food booth along with a menu for the 2020 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. The first menu you’ll encounter lists the food items. The second menu under each booth highlights the drink items slated to be available.
When I got to the festival, I noticed that some of the menu items in the My Disney Experience app were different from the actual menus at each booth. Therefore, there might be a few differences below.

Other Festival Favorites
As mentioned above, there are a few festival items at stationary locations around the park. Here’s what I ran into on my initial visit.
Funnel Cakes is located in the American Adventure, and they are offering a Street Corn Funnel Cake. It’s described as being topped with roasted corn, cotija cheese, cilantro, and cumin dusted crema with paprika. You’re on your own with this one!
And this Joffrey’s is offering the Tropical Breeze described as frozen lemon, coconut syrup, and pineapple rum.
There is an Orange Splash frozen drink at the other location over by the World Showplace. This drink consists of frozen lemon mixed with orange vodka.
Over in Future World, I ran into this signage advertising the Spring Berry Bliss.
And there is a Passion Flower available at the World Showcase Plaza.
Lastly, I picked up a Spike the Bee sipper cup over at Refreshment Outpost. It comes filled with your choice of frozen coke or frozen lemonade.
And we purchased the Orange Bird sipper cup at The Citrus Blossom. This one comes with an orange cream shake that is delicious.
These cups also made a nice gift for two special little someones in my life. You might notice that in the picture below, I had the cast member pour the shake in a separate cup, so I didn’t have to worry about toting a dirty sipper cup around all day.
This wraps up a look at the Epcot Food and Wine menu. Make sure to check out the menu links above for individual reviews of food items. I focused mainly on reviewing food items this year, but a few drinks are included here and there.
