Michelle, thank you (and everyone who responded to the free wine and food class "is it REALLY free" post I posted. Your pics are the greatest!

This is the most awesome forum. I love the people here.

As for the free food and wine . . . all I can say is WHOOOOOO-HOOOOO!

What's amazing is that I didn't know we scheduled our vacation during the Food and Wine Festival. This is perfect. With hubby and me, it's all about the food! Oh good grief I can hardly stand it!

We pulled out our glasses from The Party for the Senses (from last year) yesterday and enjoyed using them.
Now I'm just waiting with anticipation for the release of further information. -
We're planning to do the PTFS again this visit on Oct 10th.

We're hoping that there will be more events to choose from this year at last year's painful but still do-able prices.

TDC Nala ... Would it be OK to link a bunch of F&W reviews here for the newbies to look at so they might have a better idea of what some of the "vets" are talking about? I'd be happy to start it off tonight after I get back from the office (and I'm not just talking about pimping my own ... BriarRosie and Kabuki and TheDISFamily come to mind initially as some great examples to use).

Let me know if it's worth the trouble. Thanks.

I know! It's nice to 'see' you again! My daughter will be living down in Disney on the College Program, so she will be updating us on ALL of the F&W events this year! She's going to try and attend as many events as she can.

Unfortunately, my F&W reviews are long gone, so don't bother looking for them. The only one still floating around on the DIS is our last family V&A dinner. I'll pipe in here every so often when I can answer something.

I agree, if you want to get up to speed really quick on the Food & Wine Festival, read oybolshoi, BriarRosie, and Kabuki's excellent reviews!!!

You all may link anything you like if it is about the Food and Wine Festival. I'd actually like to put them in the first post but I never figured out how to give the links a name. Will follow yours if you post them and put them in the first post if they're about the Food and Wine Festival.

YAY!

The locals...drive straight to EPCOT for F&W, before going home, and don't have to pay for parking because they have annual passes (well most of them anyway)

Soft Opening on the Thursday

Does this happen every year? We are trying to plan when we will attend and this would fit nicely into our schedule. We are only looking at trying a few snacks at the different pavilions.

Were the gift cards on the wrist band new for '08?? I don't remember them my last two times. Where do you buy them? Does it cost extra for them or is it just like buying a normal gift card?

Thanks guys.

Can't wait!!!

Yes, I believe last year the gift card wristband made its debut at the festival. We bought one at the Festival Center in Future World and then another at the festival merchandise stand at the beginning of the showcase. They are just like any other Disney gift card (no surcharge/extra cost).

ETA: Here's a pic of the giftcard wristband:

The wristbands were great last year. Not only are they an easy way to pay for things but they make great souvenirs too.

That depends on what you are considering "local" many, like myself, who live less than 2 - 3 hours away will take off early Friday and go for the weekend. We have actually changed our F&W dates because of the increased FL local weekend attendance. Preferring to arrive Saturday evening and leave Tuesday. That way we still catch some of the Sunday weekend events but still miss the big local crowds.
