March 20, 2018

Where is the time going?!? This year already feels like it’s moving so fast, but now that the Dates for these popular Events have already been announced, it feels like time is moving even faster!

Epcot International Food and Wine Festival

For the 23rd year in a row, the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is returning this fall for 75 Days of entertainment, events, and of course the food and beverages.This Festival has always been a hit and this year is no exception. It will continue its tradition of fine dining events, Disney culinarians, top Celebrity Chefs, and concerts from favorite bands.This year, the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival will run from August 30 through November 12, 2018.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

You will have 34 nights to choose from this year when tickets do go on sale.

The Party will include the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show in front of Cinderella’s Castle, featuring none other than those mischievous Sanderson Sisters. Mickey’s “Boo to you” Halloween Parade and “Happy Hallowishes” are also events that should not be missed.

Tickets will start at $75, if bought ahead of time, or $85 if you purchase them at the gate (if they’re available). Of course, the closer you get to Halloween, the more expensive the tickets get, with Halloween night being the most expensive day to go.

This year’s dates are:

Favorites that are returning to the party include Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, “Holiday Wishes”, “A Frozen Holiday Wish”, and “”Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration”.

Tickets for the Christmas Party will start at $95, if you purchase them in advance, or $105 if you purchase them at the gate (if they are still available). Again, dates closer to Christmas will be the most expensive.
