Food & Wine Festival Gift Cards Are A Great Way To Budget

The 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing down at Walt Disney World Resort. Guests at the annual culinary event can expect a whirlwind tour of foods and beverages highlighting traditional flavors from around the globe. With so many good things to eat it can be easy to get carried away, and if you don't watch your costs you may end up with a big surprise when you get your final bill.

Food & Wine Festival Marketplace Booths accept many forms of payment, including: cash, credit card, MagicBand (if room charge is activated), Disney gift cards, and Disney Dining Plan Credits. Yes, Disney likes to make it as easy as possible for you to spend your money. The downside is that when so many forms of payment are similar occasionally your payment can get mixed up, and when you wanted to use your Dining Plan credits, maybe the cast member charged your room credit instead. While it is rare, it has happened to me in the past. Another downside is simply charging everything to your room, and losing track of how much you have spent. This can mean a shock when you get your final bill at check-out.

To avoid both of these easy spending traps, many Disney travelers opt to purchase Food & Wine Festival Gift Cards to budget their funds and make sure there are no surprises at the end of the day. Food & Wine Festival cards work just like a regular Disney Gift Card but are smaller in size and have a snappy wristband. I love the wristbands because it leaves your hands free for carrying small plates and cocktails! This year there are three different wristlet designs featuring Chef Remy, that can be activated by putting as little as $15 onto the card. Though - $15 doesn't go very far when you are snacking Around the World.

Also available at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival this year is a special, limited-release $250 Disney Gift Card that comes with a coordinating lanyard and a special medallion featuring Chef Mickey himself! Exclusively designed to coordinate with festival merchandise, this commemorative Disney Gift Card design is all about our favorite mouse.

Guests can pick special Food & Wine Festival Gift Cards throughout Epcot and at the Epcot Resort Hotels while supplies last.
