EPCOT® Special Events

Epcot® is the epicenter to many of Walt Disney World's® best festivals and events. Be sure to make time to seek out some of these nightly or seasonal bonuses to your vacation...



The Wold Showcase Lagoon becomes a spectacle of lasers, fireworks and fire each night at park closing time (when weather allows). Try to claim a spot along the waterfront that is not obstructed by trees. FastPass reservations are available for premium viewing areas. Some of the restaurants along the shore of the lagoon offer great views of the show if you can time it out just right. Specifically the dining spots at United Kingdom, Morocco, and Mexico.


Epcot's® Food and Wine Festival

This international cuisine event is paired perfectly with a concert series. Usually beginning in September and now going on right into November, this event brings in specialty foods from all over the world in sample sizes.  Stroll pavilion to pavilion, booth to booth sampling and sipping your way around the world. On special nights world class music artist perform at the American Adventure Amphitheater. Epcot's Food and Wine Festival is one of our favorite reasons to visit Walt Disney World®.


Epcot's Flower and Garden Fastival

During late winter and early spring months, Future World and the World Showcase blossom with color.  Disney's famous gardeners and horticulturists team up to create amazing topiary and garden attractions throughout the entire park.  There are also concerts and specialty foods to be sampled during this special time of the year.


Christmas Time at Epcot®.

Walt Disney World is a very special place across all the parks and resorts during the holiday season. But Epcot's Candlelight Processional and The World Showcase's Holidays Around the World events are truly memorable. If you are looking for an even more truly magical time to visit Epcot, this is it.
