What to Wear to Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival

The 2021 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE will kick-off on July 15 and run through November 20, 2021. The Food & Wine Festival, an annual festival at Epcot since 1995, includes special events, demonstrations, food booths, celebrity chefs, and other festival exclusive offerings. Whether you’ve been to the festival before or haven’t had a chance to attend, I would definitely recommend you book your stay ASAP, as there is a ton you don’t want to miss out on!

This year’s festival will include 32 food booths that celebrate cuisines across 6 continents. Several new booths will debut, including Brew-Wing at the EPCOT Experience, Kenya, Lobster Landing, Mac & Eats, The Noodle Exchange, Rotunda Bistro in American Adventure, The Swanky Saucy Swine, and Tangerine Cafe — Flavors of the Medina. Plus, on October 1, nine booths will be opened in celebration of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.

In addition to the food offerings, you’ll definitely want to keep an eye out for any special demonstrations and events only offered during the festival. At this time, no information about such special offerings has been announced, but be sure to visit waltdisneyworld.com for any news. Disney has announced that a live music concert series, known as with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, will be presented Friday through Monday evenings, in addition to JAMMin’ Chefs, Mariachi Cobre, and Voice of Liberty.

If you are visiting with little ones, be sure to pick up Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt (available at Port of Entry, Mouse Gear and World Traveler). As you travel through the World Showcase, locate silhouettes of Remy in each country. Return your completed scavenger hunt map to Disney Traders, located at the entrance of World Showcase, and receive a surprise!

What to Wear to Epcot Food and Wine Festival

With Epcot International Food and Wine Festival taking place from July to November, you might be thinking what do I wear if I’m visiting in July? August? September? October? November? I’ve got you covered – I’ve mastered the art and science of packing for a trip to Walt Disney World no matter what the season and I’m happy to pass along with my findings!

What to Wear to Epcot in July

The average temperature in Florida in July is 90/75 degrees with 13 days of rain. If I were you, I would expect that you will get some rain showers everyday between late June through September, so definitely come prepared with a rain jacket. You’ll want to dress is light colors and in loose fitting clothes and of course always go for the comfortable shoes. I’d definitely recommend a hat, but can totally go for Minnie Mouse ears as well if they match the outfit better!

What to Wear to Epcot in August

The average temperature in Florida in August is 91/75 degrees with 13 days of rain. Expect it to rain every day in the afternoon for at least a little bit of time and for the mid-morning to afternoon to be the warmest time of the day. Similarly to July, be sure to wear comfortable clothing that doesn’t attract heat (100% cotton clothing is the best because it is breathable). Since you’ll probably be walking into the air conditioning a ton to cool off, you might want to through a rain jacket in your bag that not only will help you when it starts pouring, but will keep you warm when the AC is blasting while you try to take a nap in American Adventure (don’t lie, you know you’ve done it!).

What to Wear to Epcot in September

The average temperature in Florida in September is 89/74 degrees with 9 days of rain. September is when you start to feel a little bit of relief in terms of the humidity and intense heat. Depending on what time of the month you come, you might not even have to worry about the rain jacket! But still be sure to wear clothing that is breathable and comfortable. Since you’ll be eating/drinking around World Showcase, you might as well break out the stretchy pants!

What to Wear to Epcot in October

The average temperature in Florida in October is 84/68 degrees with 5 days of rain. Be sure to pay layers if you tend to get chilly at night, as the temperature will fluctuate a lot in October depending on the time of day. Throw a spirit jersey in your bag or pack a light jacket that you can put on if it starts to get cooler while you’re watching the fireworks. While in other months I would definitely say to go for shorts or a shorter dress, October weather will let you get away with light fabric capris or full-length pants depending on how much time you plan to spend outside.

What to Wear to Epcot in November

The average temperature in Florida in November is 78/60 degrees with 4 days of rain. This is my favorite time of the year to visit because it’s warm enough, but you’re not sweating in places you didn’t know you could sweat! Be sure to pack layers, remembering that it can get down into the low-60’s at night and the humidity in the air while make it feel even cooler. You don’t have to be as concerned about the materials you wear in November and can be very comfortable in a maxi-skirt, long pants, or basically anything! (just leave the parka at home!)
