Editor’s Note: Here at Disney Food Blog, we do not distribute tickets because we are not actually affiliated with ABC Television or Disney.
For more information on how to obtain tickets for the taping, please read our post about how to get tickets. We’ll post the date they’re available as soon as we know it.
Today we’ve got another update about the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
The festival, which stretches to a full 75 days this year, will run from August 31-November 13 this Fall.
We are looking forward to the start of the fun. We wait all year for this (and we know you do toooo!), but this one promises to be bigger and better than ever!
There’s some GREAT news to share with you today, so let’s get right to it!
ABC’s ‘The Chew’ Returns to Broadcast from Epcot and Make Appearances
We’ve been preeeeeetty sure and now we can confirm it: the cast of ABC TV’s The Chew is definitely returning once again for the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
The core cast will tape five shows for broadcast on ABC. Taping dates will be Oct. 4-6. The episodes are scheduled to air the week of Oct. 9-13. Wanna know how to get tickets? Here’s our primer on How To Get Tickets To See The Chew in Epcot! ;-D
Scheduled to appear are co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly, and Daphne Oz (we think).
In addition to the week’s worth of episodes, the cast will also be filming segments throughout Walt Disney World for broadcast for the duration of the Festival.
No word yet on whether any of the show’s hosts will be involved in any special events, like Cooking Demonstrations or Premium Parties. Two years ago, the cast appeared on stage during one of the Rockin’ Burger Block Parties.
But we’ve got even more great news!
Earth Eats Booth Comes To The 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
In recent years, the festival made history by expanding marketplace booths into Future World for the very first time with The Chew. And it looks like this year, they’ll be bringing their innovative ideas to the event once more with the Earth Eats booth!
So far, we’re pretty sure that Earth Eats will be located in Future World. Returning to the booth from last year will be the Ricotta and Zucchini Ravioli with Rustic Tomato Sauce, and the Grilled Beef Skewer with Romaine, Apricots and Feta Cheese and Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Mousse with a Caramel Drizzle.
And Festival exclusive wines return once more and may be available at the booth as well!
We’re just getting started with what promises to be a ton of information coming your way in the next few weeks. Stay tuned to Disney Food Blog for all the latest!
