Walt Disney World Annual Passholder Specialty Gift for Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival Announced

There are definitely a lot of great perks to being an Annual Passholder at Walt Disney World.  These lucky guests receive numerous discounts on resort stays, dining, merchandise, recreational activities and more.  They also receive invitations to special events, special merchandise, special dining experiences and more.  There are often many different times where Annual Passholders also receive special free gifts for attending different events and happenings and Walt Disney World.  In recent years there has been a specialty gift given for Annual Passholders that frequent Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival and it looks like the free gifts are returning this year.

The free item this year has been announced to be themed buttons to commemorate the 2017 event at the park.  There are three different designs for the buttons with each featuring Remy from Ratatouille.  Comments on various groups and social media sites haven’t been too positive about the buttons given that last year the gift was a glass tumbler etched with the name of the event and such.  It does seem like a downgrade going from the glass gift item to buttons, but it is still always nice to get extra things that are above and beyond what is included with the Annual Passholder membership.

If you are a passholder and want to get your button, they will only be available while supplies last.  You will also be required to present your annual pass along with a valid ID in order to receive your button.

What do you all think of the buttons as the specialty gift for the 2017 International Food & Wine Festival?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
