This will be our first time @ the Food & Wine Fest... are the concerts seperately ticketed events? Or open to whoever happens by?

Thanks for any info!

The concerts are included with Epcot admission, although some can be very crowded and it may be difficult to get into America Gardens Theater.

Good to know -- thank you so much!

You also do not need to actually get into the theater to hear the concert - only if you want to sit down. You can watch from standing room outside the theater. You can also hear the concert perfectly well if you are standing anywhere in the American pavilion, like right next to the Sam Adams beer stand :rolleyes1

EXTRA good to know!!

Go without him. :lmao:

In all seriousness, the second I heard about BTE at F&W, I was on the phone with Member Services booking my BCV!! I'm so excited. :banana:

I agree! :goodvibes

But I will also say depending on your musical taste that having a Sam Adams or other adult beverage is the only way to endure some of these performances until you're out of earshot. :laughing::laughing:

DH and I are going sans kids for F&WF...can't wait!

Thanks for starting this thread. This will be my first year attending (after many years of wanting to go!) and this will be a great way for me to plan our girls only trip :thumbsup2

My wife pointed out to me a few weeks ago that the F&WF will be going on when we are down there the last week of October. I always thought that F&WF ended in early to mid-October, so this has been a nice surprise. I was already excited about MNSSHP, but this is the cherry on top.

We start our week off with MNSSHP and will end our stay with John Waite and F&WF. It's going to kill me having to wait over 4 months before we get there. I guess I will live vicariously through others via the DISboards until then.
