Fall is a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, especially for foodies! A stay in the EPCOT Resort Area can give Disney’s foodie Guests easy access to the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and, during a select weekend in November, the Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic! The resort just released dates for this year’s event, so you can plan the ultimate Walt Disney World Food & Wine weekend. Here are the details.
The 13th annual Food & Wine Classic at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort will run Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12, 2022. The event offers an ultimate foodie experience right on Walt Disney World property with unlimited tastings of top-notch culinary items from the award-winning restaurants located at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort. In addition to some delicious eats, the event offers bottomless wine, beer, and beverage samples from all over the world in a street party festival atmosphere right in the hotel’s causeway.
