The Walt Disney World Resort has a big day coming up on August 29. That's not only the opening day for Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, it's also the first day for Epcot's longest-ever International Food & Wine Festival.
This year's festival runs for 87 days through November 23 and will feature the usual dozens of marketplaces offering internationally themed food and drinks throughout the World Showcase. But since I know that many fans look forward to hearing what's new each year, let's get a quick run through the highlights.
You will find two new marketplaces at this year's event, replacing the retired Greece and New Zealand booths. The Alps will feature mountain fare, including warm Raclette Swiss Cheese with baby potatoes, Cornichons and baguette, venison stew with crushed potatoes (pictured below), and blueberry and almond Frangipane tart with Crème Fraîche and almonds.
Appleseed Orchard takes over the O Canada! theater while that CircleVision movie is getting a refresh. Inside, you will find a Charcuterie and cheese plate as well as caramel-apple popcorn.
The Earth Eats marketplace is now sponsored by Impossible Foods, adding an Impossible Cottage Pie to the Impossible Burger. Elsewhere, the France marketplace has added "Fondue Savoyarde," a fondue of imported cheeses and Chardonnay served with croutons.
And the Italy marketplace also features a new menu, with Ravioli Carbonara, Costine di Maiale (Balsamic-glazed pork ribs), crispy chicken with Marinara, traditional Sicilian cannoli and a Chocolate-Hazelnut cake.
You can find the complete menus from all of this year's Epcot International Food & Wine Festival marketplaces on Walt Disney World's website.Tweet
