Arriving at Disney EPCOT
Once you’re in Florida and heading to Disney EPCOT be sure to bring items such as water and snacks. While the parks can provide all of this for you many find it less expensive to pack in their own snacks and drinks. You are allowed to do this and many guests bring a backpack or cooler full of food.
If you’re visiting in the summer time be prepared for longer lines and very hot weather. If you’re not used to humidity, good luck! It can get very warm and humid during the day so we always suggest drinking lots of water and wearing sunscreen if you’re susceptible to sunburns.
Disney EPCOT events
Every year EPCOT puts on three major festivals: Food and Wine Festival, Flower and Garden Festival and International Arts Festival. Of these three our favorite is the Food and Wine Festival. It offers many fun and unique things to do including a concert series featuring some of the most classic oldies bands as well as classes on cooking and wine from celebrity chefs. The festival takes place during the months of Oct-Nov.
Also during the festival several counties from all of the world add food booths that serve up specialties from those counties matched with wine. It’s an incredible offering and a must do on our list. The Flower and Garden Festival is equally as good and features many food booths as well and classes on gardening and growing. The festival take place March-May.
