It’s important to note that the 2022 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival will be extremely crowded on the weekends.

2022 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival Tips
As you can see there is so much to do and see at the 2022 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. We highly recommend a few strategies like the ones below to make sure you take advantage of everything you want to sample.
Use an EPCOT Food and Wine Festival gift card
A great way to budget your spending is to purchase an EPCOT Food and Wine Festival gift card. Simply load a certain amount onto the gift card and you’re good to go!
Pack sanitary wipes
You’ll be eating a LOT of food on the go and/or with your hands. Having sanitary wipes is a great way to clean up before and after eating. Pro tip: Try and find a pack that’s unscented so you’re not overwhelmed by the sanitizer smell as you eat.
Bring a phone charger bank
This year’s festival guide is digital. You’ll need your phone to find and scan QR codes around the festival and to download the My Disney Experience app for more helpful info. All of this will surely deplete your phone battery, so bringing a portable charger bank is surely a smart move.
Additional Food and Wine Festival Tips
Take a look at the EPCOT food and wine festival menus before you go. This will allow you to pick out your favorite food and drink items. Knowing which booths you want to visit will save you a ton of time once you get into the parks.
Stay late when possible as most of the crowds have gone home by then. We love to skip dinner and grab different bites right before the fireworks as wait times are usually minimal.
Share dishes when possible. We find that the EPCOT food and wine festival is a multi day event if you are trying to taste as many food and drink items as possible. Not only will sharing allow you to do so, but it will also help if you’re on a budget!
Florida can be extremely hot for guests visiting in September and early October. Be sure to stay hydrated and take advantage of the AC when you can. Many countries such as America and Canada have cultural films you can watch and out new fan favorite the Beauty and the Beast sing along in France!
2022 Food and Wine Festival Merchandise
EPCOT food and wine festival merchandise has always been some of the most popular among Disney fans! Guests can pick from their favorite Disney apparel including t-shirts, shorts, and of course Mickey ears.
Not to mention the uniquely themed EPCOT Food and Wine festival kitchen merchandise. Some of our favorite items in the past have included wine glasses, custom coffee mugs, and different kitchen utensils.
The Food and Wine festival merchandise is also a must for all Figment fans. As Figment is typically the officially mascot of all things food and wine in EPCOT! Although Disney has not released the 2022 Food and Wine Festival merchandise, be sure to check back here to stay up to dat!
