Many Disney Guests look forward to the International Festivals that are celebrated in Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. This year the International Food and Wine Festival began earlier than in years past. Many Guests have already enjoyed the wonderful food offerings from the various Food Booths located around the World Showcase. Today one of these Food Booths is closed until further notice. Find out which Festival Booth is affected.
International Food & Wine Festival Beginning in July
Many Guests were disappointed that they were unable to visit Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival this past spring due to the closure of the Disney Parks. Unfortunately the beautiful International Flower and Garden topiaries were no longer available once EPCOT reopened. As a silver lining, Walt Disney World announced that the International Food and Wine Festival would begin on July 15, 2020. Read all about this announcement HERE.

This morning, the Islands of the Caribbean Food Booth remained closed while the other Festival Food Booths were opened for Guests. The Islands of the Caribbean offered Guests an authentic taste of the Caribbean with Ropa Vieja Empanadas with tomato aioli, Jerk–spiced chicken with roasted plantain salt and mango chutney yogurt, and Flancocho a passion fruit cake with coconut flan.
At this time, we are uncertain how long the Islands of the Caribbean Food Booth will remain closed. A Cast Member shared that this Food Booth will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to share updated information regarding the Islands of the Caribbean Food Booth when we receive it.
