Oh, I'm detecting nuttiness, all right! 3D Dessert Discovery (11/2) - Complete
 
Dis_Yoda & Husband are returning to the world for their annual F&W trip.

When: October 21st to October 29th, 2011
Where: Coronado Springs Resort
Why: Food & Wine Festival!

This is a much needed break as we haven't had a real vacation together since we both took new jobs this past April. Plus, after our vacation starts the retail holiday season, which means I become a retail widow for the next 2.5 months.

I'm a 25 year old engineer/quality supervisor & my husband is a 27 year old manager in retail. I grew up a Disney fanatic & over the years my husband has become one too. I've been going to the F&W Festival since it first started in 1995, even though I couldn't enjoy the Wine portion!

Hope to see you too! You have so many great events planned - too bad we aren't going to any of the same ones.

Oh my husband & I are probably noticeable. I'll have on a Gollum Cranberry Bog Pin & probably taking photos of our food before ever enjoying it. My husband has star tattoos behind his ears. Whats your plan for your trip?

*giggles* I love that scene in the movie! Its how sometimes I feel when I'm explaining to my coworkers why I go to F&W each year.

I'm glad someone else understands my pain! Then again, its been like this since we've been together so I knew what I was getting into.

We are planning on stopping by but not drinking on the 27th. We have that Dessert & Wine pairing at 2pm where I'll probably get most of my husband's wine and then I have my Signature Dinner at Brown Derby where the wine just keeps on flowing. My poor husband when he picks me up from Hollywood Studios - at least he's being nice and not making me take the bus home!

Oh, I'm so glad to be in from the beginning and not just catching the tail end like I normally do! I didn't realize you were so young! While I enjoyed good food that many years ago (I'm not sayin' :rolleyes1), I could never have discussed it and given such great reviews like you do! There must be an old soul in there and why you chose the name Yoda to be part of your screename. ;)

I'll be at the lunch at the Bistro that you're attending. In fact it was your reviews from last year that caused me to make the decision to change my plans from avoiding F&W on the weekends and stay at the BCV over the Thurs-Mon so that we could do the lunch and the Grand Mariner tasting, then move to VWL instead of the opposite. I wanted to do PFTS as well, but we all know what happened to THAT for the 29th. :sad2: We'll be the "Pooh sized" ladies also taking pictures of all the food before we dig in.

We're also doing the dessert party that night as well. I look forward to your reviews. You do them pretty much live, don't you? That will be great because you arrive four days before we leave, so I'll get all psyched up just before we get on the plane!

Looking forward to your reviews.

Glad you got in at the beginning too! Thanks for the compliments on the reviews. I'm lucky my mother exposed me to nicer dining growing up which helped me expand my tastes and ways to describe them.

I do try to do my reviews live - between my job & my husband's we unfortunately need to be connected to the internet so might as well use it for something fun too. At least this year we have tethering through our cell phones so no need to pay for Disney's overpriced internet.

Yeah, I'm sad there is no PFTS this year on the 29th - we actually changed our date we are leaving because of that as we have no need to stay that night now. Hopefully those attending will have fun at that detox event.

Hopefully I'll get to run into while at the events! Its always nice putting faces to screennames.
