Wine Weekend Coming to Disney World Resorts

Disney has today announced two special events taking place at Walt Disney World especially for wine lovers. First of all, the 2019 Disney Family of Wines Weekend is coming to Disney's Contemporary Resort. You may recall back at the 2018 Epcot Food & Wine Festival, there was a new booth at the event featuring labels under this umbrella of impressive wines. The Disney Family of Wines is a carefully curated wine list featuring vineyards that have a connection to Disney’s past, present, or future. Some labels include GoGi wines by actor Kurt Russell, bottles from Skywalker Vineyards and exclusive wines from MacMurray Ranch, named after the first official Disney legend, Fred MacMurray.

The Disney Family of Wines weekend includes a two-night stay at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and three days of culinary adventure. During the weekend, you’ll be able to explore flavors and interact with a collection of wines produced by winemakers and wineries that have a distinct connection to Disney. With specially curated workshops, meetings with the winemakers, and delicious meals, your stay will definitely be a memorable one. 

This event takes place May 17-19 and is bookable by calling the Disney Reservation Center at 407-939-4239 and must be booked by Friday, May 3, 2019.

If a full weekend enjoying wine while on vacation at Walt Disney World doesn't suit your plans, you can also participate in a new dining event over at Disney's Yacht Club. The Yachtsman Steakhouse invites you to explore the wonderful world of wine every second Wednesday of the month. Sip on samples of the liquid legacies of the finest appellations and vineyards throughout California, Italy, France, Chile, Australia, and more. You’ll enjoy learning about flavor profiles, winemaking techniques, and even soil and climate conditions from Advanced Sommelier Kristopher Soto. This engaging class also includes a small tasting plate paired perfectly with each wine selection.
