Walt Disney World Releases New Food & Wine Gift Card Designs

It’s that time again!  It is time for new International Food & Wine Festival themed gift cards found only at Epcot.  The special gift cards for the popular event are wearable gift cards with wrist bands attached to them so that they are extremely easy to access and find when they are needed to purchase another fabulous food or beverage item while at the festival.  The cards are mini Disney Gift Cards that feature “little chef” Remy for the 2017 design.  There are three different designs that each represent England, France and Italy.


Here is a look at the designs for this year:

You can get one of these fabulous gift cards at one of the gift shop locations at the event.  You are able to active the gift card with as little as $15.  Once the card is activated, it can be used pretty much anywhere all over Walt Disney World, including merchandise locations.  It also includes locations outside of Epcot if you decide you want to use your funds somewhere else, too. The cards basically work just like any other Disney gift card that you have used in the past.  The wearable design makes the card extremely accessible for guests that are sampling the food and drink options around the park, especially since your hands will likely be busy holding onto other delicious items.

You you will also be excited to learn that there is a limited-release gift card offered again this year for the event.  The gift card is purchased for a $200 activation price and comes with a lanyard, medallion and special carrying sleeve for the gift card.  The design is set to match the theme of the festival so that you get to enjoy the food and drinks in style.  This gift card also works just like any other Disney gift card with all the same functions.

Here is a look at the limited release gift card:

All of the gift cards can be reloaded when your funds run out, so you are able to to keep adding to you balance as often as you like.  Remember that you can use them anywhere at Walt Disney World where gift cards are accepted.

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!
