Welcome to the 2021 Food and Wine Festival. Things are a little different this year, but a number of things are still the same.
For one, this Festival is still included in your park ticket, but you also need to have a park reservation for entrance or park hop after 2 PM!
For Two, There are a number of new booths this year AND they are being opened in two tiers! The first tier is open now, with the remainder scheduled to open on October 1st (also the date of the new Remy ride and the 50th Anniversary Celebration!). There are so many great gluten free options, and they are listed out below to help you with planning your trip around EPCOT.
How to use this blog post:
We’re going to be following along with the official Food And Wine Festival Book straight from EPCOT (but I’m not endorsed by Disney in any way!)
If you don’t have this book in hand, take some notes, bookmark this page, and come back to it when you are ready to tackle the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival!
As always, Disney cannot guarantee allergens or cross contamination. Always talk to a Chef in real time to assess your risks!
Earth Eats Booth
The Earth Eats Booth is put on by Impossible Foods, and all of their options are free from Animal Products including Dairy!
- Impossible Three Bean Chili
The Noodle Exchange
Located across from the Temporary Starbucks is the Noodle Exchange! This is fast becoming my husbands favorite booth for gluten free items at the food and wine festival, and there is also a Dairy Free Option!
My husbands favorite is the Beef Pho, labeled “Traditional Spicy Vietnamese Beef Pho with Shaved Beef, Enoki Mushrooms and Thai Basil”. This is safe for soy and dairy as well.
The Tofu Pho with Enoki Mushrooms and Thai Basil is free from dairy and also gluten free! But contains soy in the tofu.
In Australia you can find the lamb chop which when *modified* is safe for dairy. You’ll need to request it without the sweet potato puree. There is soy in the lamb marinade.
This is a classic favorite that shows up at Festivals. Highly recommend. It was a good size and decently tender! We opted for no sauce to make it Dairy Free.
- The Wild Mushroom Beef Fillet Mignon
Loved LOVED that this was inside the Canada 360 Theater! It was a great spot for us to enjoy some snacks and the AC.
You can also get the Frozen Apple Pie with *no * topping. This is a non-alcoholic frozen drink that is supposedly refreshing on a hot day! I kinda thought this was better suited for the fall though, and the Florida temps aren’t doing anyone a favor.
Drinks… thats what you can get here!
Brew Wing at the EPCOT Experience
In this new booth you can get a Dairy Free Option, The Asian Wings are safe for Dairy but contain soy. If you have a nut allergy this is a good option for a booth as all the food there is free from peanuts and treenuts according to their allergen sheet!
What else is there to do at the Food and Wine Festival besides Eat?
There’s a ton of stuff to do! The Festival runs from July 15 through November 20th, and there’s still live entertainment, playgrounds, scavenger hunts and more. Head over to Disney World’s page to see the latest (as things will inevitably change for better or worse with the virus situation!)
