Walt Disney World has kept us on our toes with all of the latests announcements regarding their phased reopening. Many of these announcements have been a bit disappointing, but tonight we offer some wonderful news from the Epcot.
Longest Festival Yet
Many fans of Epcot were disappointed that they missed the beautiful 2020 Flower and Garden Festival due to the Disney Park closures due to COVID-19.
Many Guests look forward to the Food and Wine Festival every fall, and this year we have a wonderful surprise. Epcot will now debut the Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival starting on July 15, 2020. This festival will continue throughout the fall in order to allow many guests to enjoy this year’s festival.
“Eat to the Beat Concert Series”
Many enjoy the “Eat to the Beat” concert series that is offered during the Food and Wine Festival. Due to social distancing and safety protocols, these concerts have been cancelled.
We are happy to report that even though these concerts will be cancelled, other great music may be enjoyed at the America Gardens Theatre with performances by Mariachi Cobre, the JAMMitors, and more. Entertainment will be offered throughout the day to allow for all Guests to enjoy them.
Other Seasonal Events?
Many Guests are already looking ahead to the Christmas season and wondering how Epcot’s Festival of the Holidays, with the Candlelight Processional, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party may be affected. At this time, Disney has not yet confirmed or modified either of these seasonal events.
