wouldn't surprise me. And think about that ... for a couple you'd pay another $150 to add on the wine view lounge; for that much you could buy a bottle of Utopias.

Yeah but if you're not a couple, it's only $75.

But then you would probably get the thimbleful of Utopias. I bet they won't pour unlimited amounts even in the wine view lounge.

That's what I was thinking ... they will give everyone an eyedropper full of utopias and send them on their way because Sam Adams will only bring one bottle for the whole evening.

So true. But we were glad to get our thimbleful.

Yep, they sure did run out quickly.

I like the eyedropper...open up...squirt

They would need to do something to get past the people like me who keep going back and end up drinking seven thimblefuls or something.

I too like that idea It could be a new F&W fashion accessory: clip it to your lanyard and off you go a lil nip here a lil nip there

My guess is they just pass the Utopias under your nose for $75

Thanks for the info and the phone number You are all so helpful

LOL, unfortunately Disney didn't think their guests would appreciate Utopias and that is why it runs out so quickly. Same with the amount sold in the store at the festival center. They could have had much more, but Disney didn't want to take the risk.

Another example of Disney not understanding their guests!!!!

D23 SIP AND STROLL ANNOUNCED FOR F&W FESTIVAL!! I'm so going.

D23's Sip and Stroll at EpcotŪ on Sunday, October 18, 2009
09.22.09 - Join D23 at EpcotŪ at the Walt Disney World Resort during the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, as we raise a glass to our wonderful members. Attendees will begin their day in a Hospitality Suite where they will be treated to presentations from some very special guests, including Culinary Confessions of the PTA Divas and Marketplace Cookbook editor Pam Brandon — plus a few truly magical surprises. The Suite will remain open all day for your relaxation and convenience.



Attendees will be able to stroll through the Festival for lunch before enjoying one of two sessions that are part of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival — a mouth-watering culinary demonstration or a wonderful wine tasting.
Attendees will be able to stroll through the Festival for lunch before enjoying one of two sessions that are part of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival — a mouth-watering culinary demonstration or a wonderful wine tasting — exclusive to D23 Members and their guests.

As evening falls, attendees will receive reserved seating for Jon Secada's "Eat to the Beat" concert at the America Gardens Theatre, before indulging in a private Party for the Senses — the signature dining experience of Food & Wine — just for D23 Members and their guests! And no evening would be complete without VIP viewing of IllumiNations, where attendees will be able to mingle and reminisce about the adventures of their day.


Date: Sunday, October 18, 2009
Location: Epcot, Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida
Time: 9 a.m. Check In, 10 a.m. first presentation
Tickets: Will be available Thursday, September 24 at 10 a.m.
Cost: $240 per person


NOTE: Available only to D23 Members in good standing. Park entrance is not included and required. Must be 21 years of age or older to attend the wine tasting. Registration for the D23 Member exclusive Food & Wine Festival sessions will happen during the morning presentations at the Hospitality Suite. Seating for both sessions is limited, so please note that we can not guarantee access to your first choice session. Attendees will have time to enjoy Epcot on their own for some portions of the day. A specific itinerary will be provided to attendees before the event. Members may reserve a ticket for themselves and one (1) guest. There are a limited number of tickets available. D23 Members will be required to give their membership number when reserving tickets. Tickets may be picked up only with a valid ID AND D23 MEMBERSHIP CARD. D23 Members who do not bring their membership card may not be admitted to the event. All D23 Special Events are subject to change without notice.

$240 per person? No freakin way. I'm not a member of D23 anyway.

Oh, rats-my only concern is will this make Epcot any more crowded that day? Hopefully, not too much if at all. I'm planning to be in Epcot on that day, and I'm not a D23 member (and even if I was, I agree with the last poster-$240 No freakin way!) Oh, well-just one more reason to be thru the International Gateway and ready to start eating before 11:00. And I just noticed that they get into one of the culinary demonstrations. Good thing I'm already signed up for the one I want. I just hope that for $240, the people who go to this event don't have to pay for the culinary demonstration they go to.

I'm going to a culinary demo! I hope they don't kick the rest of us out for D23.

Oh no - that's the 17th, not the 18th. Was going to cruise kiosks as well and eat small stuff in preparation for Victoria & Albert's - now that's a $200 dinner.

I am debating the D23 event. For PFTS with the Wine View Lounge it is $210pp plus tax and a demo is $5pp discounted/$8pp not discounted so right there you are up to $215-$218pp (+ tax.) For $240pp (a bit more) you get a private lounge all day with special demos and a much less crowded PFTS (and special extras- they say.) So not too outrageous. We were going to do the PFTS on the 17th but not the WVL so I am not sure how we will go. Have to decide by Thursday morning when the D23 tickets book.
