According to a Florida Blue press release, they have “formed a multi-year relationship as an Official Sponsor of Walt Disney World® Resort to provide engaging and unique experiences to guests at EPCOT® as well as in their homes.” So even though the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival may be coming to an end on November 22, the delicious magic can now continue virtually!
Their first project, to provide a virtual Taste EPCOT event to residents of select 55+ communities that will feature special musical guests, culinary demonstrations by a Disney chef, and many more magical experiences.
“Florida Blue is dedicated to providing health insurance solutions to Floridians of all ages—from childhood to the golden years—just as Walt Disney World Resort provides multigenerational appeal through its variety of engaging experiences and entertainment options,” said Sarah Iselin, Florida Blue executive vice president of Government Programs and Diversified Businesses. “By forming this new relationship with Disney, we are aligning two strong Florida brands to provide residents at every age with unique events and opportunities that can only be achieved with a touch of Disney magic.”
