Here’s a cheesy activity to sink your teeth into at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival this year… The Food and Wine Festival will be featuring a new Ratatouille themed activity in addition to Remy’s Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt. This new hunt, Emile’s Fromage Montage, requires you to buy five fromage items from the Global Marketplace booths. After purchasing, get the appropriate stamp in your Food and Wine Festival Passport. Once you have collected five stamps, bring it to Shimmering Sips Mimosa Bar for a complimentary cheesecake.
It sounds like there will only be certain items that can apply to this activity. According to Disney Parks Blog, “Purchase any five cheese dishes from the official Global Marketplaces listed in the Festival Passport…”
I hope there will be enough cheesy vegetarian items listed in the passport. Although we don’t know the official options, here is a list of possible vegetarian choices to try and where to find them.
