Food is the culmination of culture, and during Grand Carnivale, your tastebuds will be sent on a jetpacking journey around the world. The 23-night international festival will transform the park into an all-encompassing celebration of China, France, Germany, India and Italy. Each country will be featured in a different section of the park, and as guests explore, they’ll be treated with authentic tastes from each.

The Worlds of Fun culinary team is introducing 15 special food selections that will be available at food stands in each section of the park. Each country will also have a selection of wine and beer to pair with each signature dish.
