As part of the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Disney presented an exclusive all-you-can-eat-and-drink “Party for the Senses” event at the World Showplace Events Pavilion where guests were treated to some of the finest cuisine that Disney had to offer with dozens of gourmet food and wine tasting stations plus craft cocktails and beers.

The World Showplace Events Pavilion is situated between the United Kingdom and Canada Pavilions in the World ShowCase.

Because of the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic the exclusive Party for the Senses along with the Eat to the Beat music concert series were cancelled for 2020 and 2021

It is not clear if or when the Party for the Senses will return but the rest of this page gives you an idea of what was offered in 2019

As well as the party, the event also includes guaranteed seating at the first Eat to the Beat Concert Series.

From 2017, Disney has tweaked their Party for the Senses event and is now offering guaranteed seating for all their guests. In previous years, seating was an optional paid extra.


This year the event is held on five Saturday nights with seating for all 1,000 guests including 120 seats in the Wine View Lounge.

The 2019 dates are September 21, October 5, 12 and 19 plus November 9 and the event runs from around 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The seating is arranged around eight show kitchens manned by more than 20 celebrity chefs including Disney chefs from around the world, everything from intimate two seat tables to large communal 24 seat tables.

As well as the food, there is also live entertainment from Femmes of Rock, a 4 piece all-girl string quartet called “Bella Electric Strings”.

Party for the Senses Ticket Options

For 2019 there are just two ticket options:

Wine View Lounge private premium reserved seating, early admission at 6:30 p.m. with special chef’s briefing and photo ops, a premium bar service, artisanal cheeses, a speciality welcome cocktail toast and a gift plus premium wine glass souvenir when you leave. It also places you closer to the stage and dance floor. You also get complimentary transport in one of Disney’s new Minnie Vans to and from your Disney Resort hotel or the main entrance to the event site if already at Epcot.

Both ticket option prices include a gratuity. Note you also need a regular park admission ticket and you have to be 21 or older to consume alcohol.

Reservations are essential as places sell out fast.

In previous years there was a third ticket option which allowed you to reserve a whole table for your group rather than being seated at one of the communal tables.
