Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival Highlights

From cooking demos and live music to delicious food and wine, there are so many reasons for you and your family to experience this year’s Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World® Resort! Today, we’re taking a closer look at one of those tempting opportunities – the Rockin’ Burger Block Party.

When you think of burgers, they usually start with beef and a bun – but the rules are different at this event. You and your family might find the beginnings of a traditional sandwich, and then the chefs take the flavor to a whole new level with patties like an Indian-inspired Malai Chicken Mushroom Burger or a pork slider with aji amarillo chile slaw and avocado on brioche.

These are just two of seven impressive burgers at the first party on Sept. 30, 2016 at World ShowPlace. Other parties will take place on Oct. 14 and Nov. 11 where all-new creations will be featured, with music and plenty of libations adding to the fun. You and your family can even vote for their favorite burger!

The Sept. 30 event features celebrity Chef Maneet Chauhan with that Malai Chicken Mushroom Burger. Here’s some other tasty competitors:

  • STK – their famous “lil BRGs” with Wagyu beef, special sauce and a sesame seed bun
  • Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant – a beer-battered burger topped with garlic aioli, tomato chutney and greens.
  • Disney’s Beaches and Cream – the Sunrise Burger with chorizo, candied Canadian bacon, avocado spread topped with a quail egg and sriracha mayo on an English muffin.
  • D-Luxe Burger – the classic Southern style: a beef burger topped with a friend green tomato, pimento cheese and Applewood-smoked bacon on a soft, sweet Parkerhouse roll.

Chef Alex Seidel, a James Beard finalist (with a Colorado blended lamb burger) plus six other local restaurant competitors will participate on Oct. 14. And Nov. 11 stars celebrity Chef Jehangir Mehta (doing a mushroom-blended “Graffiti” burger) along with six others.

All three parties take place from 7-9 p.m. and the cost is $99-$199 plus tax and gratuity.

You can even reserve VIP Nosh Pit seating ($199) for your family if you want a guaranteed table (plus you’ll receive a 15-minute start, a premium bar and a specialty cocktail). Epcot admission is not included.
