I'll be going to my first F&W this October and I was wondering this as well, thanks!

Although they don't keep the kiosks open during EMH, I think the WS is open til 10 PM on Friday and Saturday nights. A word of caution though, Friday and especially Saturday nights can bring huge crowds.

I'm not sure if this is old news or not, but I saw on the FB Epcot Food and Wine Festival Fans page today that the Festival will be ending on November 12 now, not the 11th. That's good for me if it's true, gives us an extra day there!

I'm not arriving until Nov 10 so I really hope that it is open until November 12th!


That would give me another day to enjoy. Do you think it will be crazy busy on the Monday because it's veterans day? I need to change my whole plan for this extra day.

I think this year I will try to book some seminars for me and my DD13, she really likes cooking and trying new things.

This should be treated as unconfirmed/unsubstantiated rumor at best.
That's what I've heard as well for V&A - October 28.

That's interesting. The French Regional Lunches have been one of our favorite events for the past couple years. Seems like they're making the best use of space having them at Bistro de Paris upstairs since the restaurant isn't open for lunch. Wonder how they would accommodate downstairs in the extremely noisy Chefs de France. Hoping this one's a rumor and not a reality

I hope it's okay to ask this here. Can you pay for food with gift cards? Or do you need to have cash? TIA and sorry if this is not the place to ask this!

You can definitely pay with gift cards (or cash, credit, or Key to the World). In fact, the Food & Wine Festival sells special gift cards on wristlets for easy access.

this is my first time at the F&W! really excited as love trying new foods.

We are on the ddp and will have 14 snacks each - do you think we will need more $$ for this? We plan to visit on 3 or 4 evenings

I would plan to bring more money solely because the drinks won't be covered. The number of food items you can buy with your snack credits will probably be fine for three or four meals.

Bistro de Paris is closed beginning July 1, or thereabout, for renovations. They do not believe they will be finished by Oct 1. Chefs de France, while not a desirable venue, is the most logical for the French Regional Lunches.
