First Look at Merchandise for 2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival


The Disney Parks Blog shared a sneak peak at some of the upcoming merchandise available during the 2013 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

Randy Noble from the Disney Design Group shared this information with the blog:

“This year’s artwork is based on artwork created by Walt Disney Imagineering that you will see throughout the event,” explained Randy. “The art has a humorous point of view, which is different from the imagery found in the previous year’s events. For this whimsical image, I used pastel colors to create a softer look for the overall image. If you look carefully, you will spot Remy from Disney•Pixar’s ‘Ratatouille’ in the top of the chef’s hat.”

The bumbling, yet-unnamed chef inspired a new item for the festival this year – a seven-inch bobble figurine of the chef. The figurine was sculpted by artist Robert King and looks awesome (especially the details on Spaceship Earth!). Look for this chef artwork on additional items like a reusable tote bag and more.

There will also be a small art program featuring Goofy, Mickey and Donald, as well as Food and Wine Festival inspired vinylmation as well.
