2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Merchandise

Inside of the 2011 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Center, located in the much beloved Wonders of Life Pavilion, you will find the most comprehensive collection of Festival Merchandise.

Let’s take a look at what this year has to offer…

This is the painting of the International Food and Wine Festival's signature print.

 

As always, the focus of the merchandise are items that you can use in your own kitchen.

 

PINS!!!!

 

I am in LOVE with the Minnie Pin!!! So I may be biased, as she's my favorite character...

 

This is the Annual Passholder exclusive pin for the Food & Wine Festival.

 

The old world looking stamps on the hat look super cool.

 

This burn-out t-shirt is really cute! It might be my favorite.

 

There were a large variety of shirts this year.

 

 

While the front seems unassuming...

 

The back is awesome, because it has replicas of all of the kiosk signs!

 

 

This looks dangerous!

 

Chef Duffy!

Now the next few items I found are so amazing! These cosmetic and messenger bags are created from the banners that flew at last year’s International Food and Wine Festival!!!

 

 

 

 

The 2011 Food and Wine festival Vinylmation.

 

The 2011 International Food and Wine Festival has also added two signature wines to their list of exclusive offerings.

The festival Pinot Grigio.

 

The festival Chianti.

 

The thing that strikes me the most about the merchandise for the 2011 International Food and Wine Festival is that the quality has definitely been kicked up a notch since last year!!!

Also, with the addition of the wines and the priorLife merchandise you will find more opportunities, outside of the featured artists, to purchase one-of-a-kind items!
