This is the big annual event that foodies mark on the calendar year after year The World Showcase becomes home to marketplaces featuring food, wine and beer from participating countries. The appetizer-sized portions – ranging in price from $4 to $8 usually – give guests a chance to sample dishes such as mussels from New Zealand, beef empanadas from Patagonia, roasted duck from China, bratwurst in a pretzel roll from Germany, escargots from France and many more. The festival also features seminars, tasting events and special meals overseen by top Disney chefs as well as renowned guest chefs.
