Five Great Things to Do With Your Kids at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Epcot is a family friendly park, but up until now, it has always skewed more adult, especially at the Food and Wine Festival.  This year things are a little different, with a lot more focus on kids.  The Ratatouille scavenger hunt is back and there are plenty of interactive experiences just for kids.  Check out these five great things to do with kids at the International Food and Wine Festival in Epcot.

Junior Chef Kitchen Presented by Krusteaz

Every Sunday at 11:00 from September 2 to November 11, kids will get the chance to work alongside and learn from a Disney Chef in this fun-filled workshop.  The guided workshop lets kids learn while making pancake creations that they also get to enjoy.

Children who want to participate in this unique and fun opportunity must register a day in advance.  The age range to be accepted is 4 to 10 years.  Availability is first-come-first-serve and Epcot admission is required.

The Disney Du Jour Dance Party

Character Dance Parties are popping up everywhere.  Disney Du Jour is a scheduled dance party event where the guest characters are a daily surprise.  Plus, there is a bonus concert at this free event by a surprise guest from Radio Disney.

Remy’s Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt

This scavenger hunt is fun for the whole family.  It’s under $6 to pick up the map for this interactive quest.  Everyone in the family will enjoy playing along.  When you take your completed map back to the shop, you will get a special prize.  Maps are available in shops throughout the park.  Look for the signs that indicate the maps are sold there.

New Playground

Disney really wanted to welcome kids this year because Epcot is such an adult park and Food and Wine is such an adult festival.  So, they designed this playground to help them burn off their excess energy.

The Chocolate Experience

Pick up a free chocolate sample and educate kids on the journey of chocolate from bean to bar.  This little gem tucked away in the back of the Festival Welcome Center is hosted by Ghirardelli. The chocolate is fantastic and the sculptures on display are really impressive to look at.  There is also sipping chocolate, chocolate squares and more available for purchase.
