Is Epcot International Food and Wine Festival calling your name, but you’re worried you can’t take the kids with you? Don’t be! Epcot is family-friendly park with plenty of fun things the kids can experience while you get to enjoy the Food and of course the WINE!

Here are a few of our favorite way to entertain children while at Epcot International Food and Wine Festival!

  • Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt –

A fun way to keep your children engaged while traveling around the World Showcase is Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak Scavenger Hunt. It’s an engaging activity for all ages. You can purchase the map and stickers from Port of Entry, Pin Traders, or World Traveler. Once your child has found all the hidden Remys- with the ingredients for his famous dish- and matched the stickers to the ingredients, take your completed map to Disney Traders, World Traveler or Gateway Gifts and your child will get to pick a surprise! What child doesn’t love a surprise?!




  • Being in charge of the Passport

Another great option for your children is to let them be in charge of your passport! The passport is full of stickers for them to fill in as you get to travel the world. It’s a win-win for both of you!



  • Emile’s Fromage Montage – Cheese Trail

What could possibly go better with wine than some cheese? Indulge in a variety of delicious cheese dishes prepared by our friend Emile the rat! Purchase any 5 cheese dishes from select Global Marketplaces listed in the Festival Passport, and be sure to collect a stamp for each dish you purchased. Once you have collected your 5 stamps, bring the stamped Passport to Shimmering Sips for another prize!





And don’t forget to stop by the Tiana- theme playground, located between Test Track and World Showcase!

Remember the rides, too! Epcot has lots of fun rides for kids, like Frozen Ever After, The Gran Fiesta Tour featuring the Three Caballeros, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, and- opening October 1st!- Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure!

And you can always take a fun ride on a Friendship Boat or the Skyliner!
