I understand. Family first.

The good thing is WDW will still be there when you're ready and able to return -- with more "new" experiences!!

I did not book anything this year for F&W. Since we are leaving on the 5th there only was the Italian Regional Food and Wine Lunch that we could attend and were interested in. However I had booked as a surprise for my DH The Epcot Dive experience which is that day during the same time. So we will be just enjoying the booths and any experiences we come upon for our F&W.

Do any of you remember from a few years back a section set up for "The Australian Wine Walkabout"? It was set up under some big trees just off the walk way. It was a super experience where you went to different tables/booths set up for the different regions of Australia and their wines. You paid a set amount for the total experience I seem to remember it was like $8.00 pp to get a generous pour of each wine from that region (usually 2-3 wines per region). They told you about the wine, grapes and how it was produced along with great interaction and stories. It was one of our favorite experiences for a couple years running. Sadly it was not there in 2010 and I don't see it this year.
But we do have great memories!

I remember the Australian Wine Walkabout well!!! Sadly, it hasn't been there the last couple of years.

You must try Tutto Gusto - which is the new wine bar next to Tutto Italia. I'll be heading that way this weekend!


A Biergarten took its place (IIRC). When alcohol is involved, my memory sometimes gets fuzzy!!

Ann,

I remember the Australian Wine Walkabout--maybe 2004. For some reason, I had a hole in my chin and ended up with red wine on my white top. Hard to forget that!

Some of us have permament holes in our chins when drinking red wine, usually against a light colored shirt!

Whrn we had a F&W festival in CA we had several of those walkabouts I think two or three with wine and one with beer. Our food and liquor laws are much more restricted here so kiosks aren't possible I guess though you can sell wine in a free standing booth.

Just about a month now! I'm so looking forward to seeing all my friends. It will be soooo relaxing in between have my BFF and family down there, and a bunch of friends from our neighborhood coming the next week. It's been a long summer with a lot of rotten things (culminating in my lovely ER visit and overnight stay last week) so hopefully Disney will help change all this.

BFF's DH goes for his second round of chemo today, doc wanted it to be as far out from the trip as possible. He'll have a scan the Friday before we leave to see if it's helping, but they don't want to know the results until after this trip. I truly hope that he is able to enjoy some time with his boys while we are in FL. I did decide that even if they bail at the last second, I'll still come down on the 6th, stay at AKV until the 12th and then will be at BWV.

I am glad the trip is still a "go," Tracy!! I am looking forward to seeing you again.

I wish your BFF's DH the best of luck. Sounds like he is a "hard fighter" and that will help.

What were you doing in the ER?!?!?

On a happier note: We ordered our hoppers yesterday and Undercover Tourist shipped them today!!

It won't be long now!

A quick "Hi!" from Fort Hood, TX! It's a very somber mood here today on the Base.

I'm so glad plans are progressing for you, Tracy, and for you, Elin!

I probably won't have time to get caught up and organized until next week.

Oh had some chest pains, foggy head and just felt weird. Had one clear EKG and they were going to let me go but a second one was a little "funny" so that earned me more tests and the overnight stay. Thankfully everything came back normal.

I'm trying to get organized, but I feel like the more I'm doing the less organized I get.
