ESPN’s Monday Night Football Hosting Food & Wine Tailgate Tasting at Walt Disney World

Epcot International Food & Wine Festival has began last month at Walt Disney World!  Monday Night Football has also started back, so what is more perfect than enjoying a special Food & Wine Festival event and Monday Night Football at the same time?  We learned from Disney Parks Blog that there is a new Food & Wine Tailgate Tasting hosted by ESPN’s Monday Night Football joining the special event lineup during the festival.  The tasting will be offered on select Mondays throughout the festival.  It will last 45 minutes and will pair tailgating-inspired food and beverage items.


Guests will get the opportunity to enjoy three sample sized food items that are inspired by the cities that are playing in the game each week, plus three different beverages.  Guests will also get to learn about the preparation for the dishes during the event.

The Food & Wine Tailgate Tasting is a complimentary event.  Guests that are interested in the event can pick up a wristband at the Festival Center starting at 9 AM on the date of the date of the event.  The wristbands are available on a first come, first serve basis so interested guests should make sure to get over there and get theirs right away.  All interested guests must be present in order to receive a wristband.

The event will run from 4:30 PM through 5:15 PM and the dates for the event are:

  • September 17th
  • September 24th
  • October 1st
  • October 8th
  • October 15th

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
