He Swan and dolphin food and wine classic is “The other”Gastronomic and wine festival at Walt Disney World area, But unlike EPCOT, you’ll only have two nights to enjoy food, fun, and partying. It’s also a much more condensed space, so you’ll be able to see it all in one night. Let’s take a closer look at the other gastronomic and wine festival in these parts!
The swan and the dolphin
If you are not familiar with it The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, you can find these downtown hotels just minutes from EPCOT‘s International front door. Both of us EPCOT i Disney’s Hollywood Studios they are inside walking distance, and if one more step after a long day of park tempts fate, there is one Friendship ship which happens every 20 minutes or so.

What should I expect?
The festival presents more than 20 food stations, and the offers are cultivated by the cooks in hotels’ award-winning restaurants. The highlight of the drinks is the collection of more than 100 wines from all over the world, plus an amazing one brewery in the garden and other delicious libations.

What’s on the menu?
We are glad you asked for it! We were able to take a pretty good look at what’s in store with a full list menu options and some of the drinks you can expect to experience. There are three thematic areas this year, included The Beer Garden, El Pig & The Poke, i China Town.
The menus include some items that come back from years past, such as Shula’s Steak House MVP, the Roasted Linz Heritage Black Angus beef loin. There are a lot of new things, however, and it makes our mouths water just to think of selections like the Tacos to the Shepherd. Some of the items will vary during the two nights, so the whole menu options may not be available both nights – even more reasons to think about going both nights.
Do you have a view of this Walt Disney World grill?
So why should we go?
With everything that has changed in the last year and a half, it will come as no surprise this event was canceled last year. This year they have outdone themselves, with pairs more houses, bites, i drink than ever.
This year’s experience will also include expanded entertainment. You can really make an afternoon of that, and for everything you can eat, drink and enjoy the entertainment, the price is right!
Our best tips from the last time we went to the Food and Wine Classic
If you are looking for something a little different from EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, that may be just the thing. If you want a FULL dining and wine experience in a shorter amount of time (basically, you don’t want to walk around the World Showcase forever and wait a million queues to get food at every booth at EPCOT!), This is a solid option. Everything you can eat and drink overnight sounds pretty good, right?
You can order tickets on the Swan and Dolphin website, or call them directly at 888-828-8850 to buy your tickets or book your package. You NO you have to be invited to the Swan and Dolphin to attend the Food and Wine Classic, so go and enjoy!
