This year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival coincides with the 35th anniversary of Epcot itself – which, for all you food freaks out there, means more festival days (a record 75) and more wee food to ingest. This year’s festival offers 35 kiosks with cuisine and beverages from countries across the globe. India, Spain and Thailand return to the global marketplace, along with some new ones – Active Eats (a nebulous assemblage of “action-packed offerings”), the Almond Orchard (desserts and beverages made with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze almond milk), Coastal Eats (seafood), Flavors From Fire (spicy fare) and Light Lab (bubbly drafts and spirited concoctions). But fear not, favorite dishes from previous years will be returning – meaning yes, there will be cheddar cheese soup at the Canada kiosk.

Opens Thursday, Aug. 31, through Nov. 13 | Epcot World Showcase, 200 Epcot Center Drive, Lake Buena Vista | disneyworld.disney.go.com | admission free with park entrance; various food prices
