EPCOT Makes Major Change To Festival Guidebook

in Epcot, Food

The EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival typically takes place during the fall months, but for 2020 Disney is debuting the popular event early, In fact — it officially debuted TODAY, July 15, making this the longest-running EPCOT Food and Wine Festival yet!

Usually during the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, Guests can pick up a festival guidebook, which lays out all of the different food booths, food and drink offerings at each booth, and the fun activities going on during the festival months as well. Guests also used to be able to get their passport stamped at each booth by a Cast Member, or in more recent years, they could put their own stickers on the booths they have visited on the corresponding pages.

Below, you can see an example of the paperback festival guidebook from years past.
