So here it is on the review board:

This time tomorrow I'll be headed for the Tequila Ditch so I won't get to see how it turns out for awhile.

I won't let it ruin my F&W experience but I'm stunned, shocked and totally disappointed that Chilaquiles are not on the menu. We always rush to Mexico to eat them on our first day. Bummer.

And I had to fight the same urge, Redzinner. I wanted to print everything out, highlight the things I thought we'd be interested in trying, and then total up the cost.
Thank you both! Jason wanted me to print them also and then I reminded him of the 6 photo albums we have from last year that include multiple pictures of these same menus! He let me save the tree!

And kabuki, thank you for all your research. You made the waiting a little easier with all the info.
Your welcome! I am just happy to have people that are as excited as we are to share it with!

I wasn't really interested in the prices - only enough to want to know what the lobster roll costs this year (not that I'd ever order one because of the mayonnaise which I don't eat), but I thought $7 was exorbitant and now it's $7.25. I also think it's interesting that half a dixie cup of cheddar cheese soup costs almost as much as a much larger cup of it in the restaurant, but since nobody can get into the restaurant (just ask Hitler) I think it'll sell if they charge twice as much.

Are you all interested in a dedicated thread (not a sticky) for food & wine festival general reviews on the review board? It would be a good place for observations since this thread is kind of long. I'd need to put one up today at my lunch break.

They are not the same chilaquiles as the booth. The ones being served at the quick service stand have red sauce and seem more traditional to what I have always had in Mexico and with friends. The ones at the booth were more like lasagna but so good!

I think Affligem and Hacker Pschorr are now distributed by Hieneken, but they're still pretty decent beers.

I think between the Abita, Sam Adams Selections, and the Affligem, they're doing much better with the beer choices than previous years ...
We agree that the selection was nothing to write home about but with a last name of Murphy - Jason is happy he dosen't have to go to Raglan Road each day to get a fix!

Yes! You said what we were thinking - we had a moment of silence for the chilaquiles and then we are happy just to see so many new things this year!

Affligem Blonde and Hacker Pschorr are the only two on the list I don't know, I think Afflingem Blonde is pretty self explanitory can you tell me about Hacker Pschorr?

Us too ! and hearing that the ones at the CS place are not the same is very disappointing, it was the green sauce that we liked ! I was sure it had been so popular during F&W that they had added it to the menu, well I guess they did, just couldn't resist messing with it.

and I should say "Opps, should have read to the end before I started making comments"

Hacker Pschorr is one on of the 'Big Three' Munich/Barvaria, Germany brewers. The other two are Hofbrau and Spaten, so if you've ever had anything from the other two, Hacker Pschorr is very similar. The question is what Hacker Pschorr beer will it be?

My guess is that it's either HP Weiss, which is a nice lighter wheat beer similar to Franzikaner, or it will be HP Gold, which is a good Munich style gold lager, similar to Hofbrau original of Spaten's Munchen gold. They're both good examples of old school Barvaria brewing.

The Affligem is a belgian blonde, and it does pack a bit of a punch, as I think it's around 7-9% alc.

I just read that there is a soft opening going on at F&W right now. Apparently all the booths are open and there are no lines! I hope those of you there are enjoying it!

I wish I was there right now. I was there for soft opening last year though, and it was wonderful. So many yummy things, and no waiting. I don't think a lot of people know it's open the day before, and wait for the official opening.

Can someone point me in the right direction for the Brewer's Collection drink list? TIA

I want to do my final set of tasting cards (and send the new one out to some of you!!) Again, anyone wanting a set of cards, PM me with your email, and I'll send you a PDF copy of them for you to print out.

So excited to hear it's all up and running, even in just preview form.

I was so upset to se Chiliquiles were not on the menu. I feel slightly better knowing they are somewhere in Mexico, I just have to find them.
ReggieB I cant wait for the new improved cards!
There are quite a few drinks that I want to try, I'm glad that I have 2 days in Epcot. Plus I have to try the "ditch" (thanks Nala)

I can't wait for the first people to come back and give us the scoop.
I will be there in 6 days

I saw a picture of the Cantina de San Angel menu board, and it said it was red sauce, not the green tomatillo sauce we know and enjoy. Who knows? It still may be palatable.

I'm not shy about telling them that I paid for a full cup of cheddar cheese soup. But I've decided to retire the cheddar cheese soup last year, and I'm going to continue the retirement this year. I'm going to try that spicy chicken sausage with sweet corn polenta!

Did anyone else notice that the Puerto Rico menu has no DDP logos on it? I think they need to send it back to the sign makers. I bet people who want to use snack credits there will be confused, unless the overhead menu board has the logos on it.

I had just noticed that. Also the Sukiyaki Beef Roll in Japan had no DDP logo next to it. I'm sure they must be on the DDP - they're cheaper than the Lobster Roll and it is on it.

Only 9 more sleeps for me till I'm there! Thanks to everyone for all the info to help me plan and anticipate.
