A peek into the 2017 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Posted By on Fri, Jul 14, 2017 at 6:06 PM

This year's Epcot International Food & Wine Festival (Aug. 31 through Nov. 13) coincides with the 35th anniversary of Epcot itself. which, for all you food freaks out there, means more festival days (a record 75) and more wee food to ingest.

India, Spain and Thailand return to the global marketplace, along with some new ones — Active Eats (a nebulous assemblage of "action-packed offerings"), the Almond Orchard (desserts and beverages made with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk), Coastal Eats (seafood), Flavors From Fire (spicy fare) and Light Lab (bubbly drafts and spirited concoctions).

We got an early look at some of the solid comestibles, liquid potables and gaseous nutriments that'll be offered this year. Take a look:
