The 17th annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival at Walt Disney World Resort will feature a variety of watermelon elements for the first time.
The festival opens Sept. 28 and guests will be able to taste their way around the World Showcase, beginning with a stop by Mr. Food’s Watermelon Patch, according to a news release from the National Watermelon Promotion Board.
The watermelon patch features a farmers wagon and educational storyboards.
Festival chefs will prepare watermelon as part of the specially ticketed Disney Dessert Discoveries experiences on select Fridays, according to the release.
Mr. Food will have culinary demonstrations at the Festival Center on Oct. 13 and 14.
Watermelon Queens will also visit during that weekend to hand out watermelon recipes, share watermelon stickers and answer questions, according to the release.
The watermelon patch will be on display at the festival until Nov. 7.
