At the risk of sounding “cheesy,” is there anything better than tasting your way around the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival? Year after year, the culinary quest gets better and better with new offerings and returning favorites. And speaking of returning favorites, Disney Gift Card is back with a new wristlet design featuring our favorite “little chef,” Remy, paired with an assortment of cheeses and grapes. “Ratatouille” has always been a favorite Pixar film of mine and what I always found so inspiring is Remy’s sense of adventure. Whether you’re exploring new cultures or simply exploring the spice aisle in the grocery store, it’s fun to try new things!
Sure, Remy and his mentor, Chef Gusteau taught us that “anyone can cook,” but at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival you can taste the flavors of global marketplaces without touching a stove! And with our special edition Disney Gift Card wearable design, you don’t have to touch your wallet either. Available at merchandise locations throughout Epcot, this Disney Gift Card dangles on a wrist coil, so you can activate it with any dollar amount starting at $15 and wear it around the park as you explore everything the festival has to offer. Simply scan to redeem for food & beverages, merchandise, and more throughout the Food & Wine Festival, Walt Disney World Resort and beyond!
New to the festival this year is a special offering for Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholders. Adorned with artwork featuring the one and only Chef Minnie, purchase this Passholder-exclusive $100 Disney Gift Card and receive a $10 digital bonus to use at select table-service restaurants at Epcot. The $100 Disney Gift Card can be purchased now through November 23, 2019 at Mouse Gear, Disney Traders, Port of Entry and the Future World Bridge Kiosk. Available while supplies last; it does not expire. Once activated, follow the instructions on the carrier to claim your Epcot Table Service Restaurant Bonus. The $10 digital bonus must be claimed and spent by November 23, 2019; the bonus will not be valid after this date.
No matter which card you choose, know that your Disney Gift Card has no fees and never expires, so you can keep and reload it for years to come! If you have children or teenagers joining you on your trip, you can pick up a card for everyone in the family: giving them each the freedom to choose what they would like to purchase and they get a keepsake of their vacation. And if you don’t quite spend the total you loaded onto your card, use the remaining balance to shop for practically all things Disney at select locations nationwide or keep it with your magic bands and save it for your next trip to the “Most Magical Place on Earth!”
