Epcot Food and Wine Late Nights Live Event Cut Back to One Night Per Week

One of the new special events for this year's Epcot Food and Wine Festival has already gone through a schedule change.

The nighttime party, Epcot Food and Wine Late Nights Live, was originally scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday nights during the Festival, but is now only available on Thursday nights.

The three-hour street party takes place every Thursday evening beginning at 9:45 p.m. and it lasts until 1 a.m. The party is located between the United Kingdom Pavilion and World Showcase Plaza.

Late Nights Live features six items from Food and Wine Festival Marketplace Booths in addition to live entertainment and a DJ.

Tickets for the Late Nights Live event are $79 plus tax per person. Admission to Epcot is not required if guests are planning on entering the park after 9 p.m., however if guests intend on arriving prior to park close at 9 p.m. they must have admission to Epcot.

Epcot Food and Wine Late Nights Live begins September 25.

I'm not horribly surprised this isn't going over as well as they'd expected. Almost $80 for some food and entertainment? I can get that all day long during normal park hours - no, the food isn't included in the price of admission, but I get to choose what I want from dozens of offerings instead of just six items that might not appeal to me at all. And it's not just three hours, and I'm not limited to a small section of the park. IMO this event is just not worth $80 even if the food is included in the price.

I had booked this as part of the premium package as that worked out OK. Sad they cancelled the Tues as that was when we had booked and we cannot do the Thursday as booked for MNSSHP. Still get an early night always a flip side.

I really think that they were trying to draw in the local crowd with this as a special "date night" sort of thing, but come on - Tuesday? People have to work.
