Disney has announced details on the menus, special events, and more about the 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Finding out what delicious new treats are coming to the festival this year is like a culinary Christmas in July. The only thing that would make this better is if I could actually try the food right now.

We’ve updated our Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Guide with all the details. Here are a few of the highlights of what’s new for 2014 at the festival.

International Marketplaces

Ah, the main event. These food booths located around the World Showcase are what most guests will enjoy during the festival. 2014 brings two new Marketplaces and returns one that went on hiatus last year. For the new offerings, Farm Fresh offers farm to table fare at the Festival, and Patagonia provides a taste of South America (replacing the Argentina booth from last year). Puerto Rico returns to the festival after taking a year off. While some of the booths have had slight – major overhauls in their menus (Hops & Barley and Brazil have vastly different menus this year), many festival favorites return.

Premium Events

These events are your chance to indulge in some of your culinary dreams. Party for the Senses is offering a new twist on the experience this year with Party for the Senses featuring Disney Chefs from Around the World. The new Epcot Food & Wine Festival – Boot Camp Series offers guests 2 hour crash courses in some culinary specialties. And want the ultimate opulent dining experience? Sign up for the $295 per person Italian White Truffle & Wine Pairing Dinner at Tutto Italia. These are just a few of the new premium events at the 2014 Food & Wine Festival. Find out the full lineup here: Premium Events at 2014 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

Reservations begin July 31. (407) 939-3378.

Free Events

From Eat to the Beat to the Ghirardelli Chocolate Experience, there are a lot of fun things to do that are exactly $295 cheaper than the Italian White Truffle & Wine Pairing Dinner. 2014’s new free event is the Back to Basics series, where seasoned pros give tips and tricks on how to season (and much more). Those seminars will take place weekends at the Festival Center.
