2014 Epcot Food & Wine Fest to be longest ever

Epcot's 2014 Food & Wine Festival will be the longest ever, a record 53 days, the park announced.

The festival will run from Sept. 19 to Nov. 10 — adding an extra week for visitors to eat and drink their way around the world at the internationally themed park.

No menus or other festival details were released, and a lineup of chefs will be announced this summer.

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which runs March 5 to May 18 is also getting into the foodie scene with a second year of food booths (called "outdoor kitchens") added to the lineup. They include a Florida Fresh stand selling watermelon salad with pickled onions, as well as shrimp and stone ground grits. Or you can try a Taste of Marrakesh near the Morocco Pavilion serving lamb brewat rolls and Harissa chicken kebabs with couscous salad.

During both festivals, activities are included in regular Epcot admission, but food is priced separately.
