If you area planning to go to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival this year then you will be interested to know that the booking for the premium events will open on August 13th 2013. These premium events are extremely popular so if you want to get your first choice be ready to dial as soon as the lines open on August 13th at 7am EST. That is going to be a difficult one for people not on EST!.

There are some new experiences on the schedule for 2013. New Scotland celebrates the land of Disney Pixar Brave and Princess Merida. On my list to try is the New Parisian Breakfast.
If you want to attend the ultimate Epcot Food and Wine Festival event then sign up for the Party for the Senses. This event is not inexpensive, starting at $145 for general admission, $180 for a reserved table and rising to $285 for reserved seating in the Wine View Lounge. These prices include gratuity but do not include tax or the required park admission. But Party for the Senses is one of the most popular events at the Festival and sells out quickly each year.
Epcot Party for the Senses is held in the WorldShowPlace Events Pavillion. Once inside you are treated to a huge array of samples of food and beverages from Disney restaurants, resorts and some outside restaurants too. Most feel that even with the high price tag this is an Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Premium Event that is worth every penny.
