ORLANDO, Fla. — Disney World will host early-access events just for passholders during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.

  • Disney World announces new ‘Thank You Thursdays’ event
  • Passholders get early access to Epcot to buy special merchandise
  • Event takes place select Thursdays during Food & Wine Festival

“Thank You Thursdays” is part of Disney’s V.I.PASSHOLDER series.

Passholders will be able to access Epcot for a special shopping event an hour before the park opens.

During the event, passholders can be the first to purchase new passholder-exclusive merchandise at The Festival Center and Mouse Gear.

The event will take place on Aug. 30, Sept. 20 and Oct. 18 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Unlike the V.I.PASSHOLDER Nights event announced in July, “Thank You Thursdays” don’t require registration.

Passholders will need bring their annual pass and a photo ID to check in.
