Food And Wine 2013 Thread

Since the 2013 dates have been announced will you be there and what are your dates? This will our first trip since 2005 to the Food and Wine Festival. We will be there the week of Halloween. We are booked at VWL but hoping to switch to BCV or BWV if we can get the reservation.
So has a lot changed since then, we every excited to attend and looking forward to spending our evenings there except on Weekends and I have heard not so good things about so we will not be attending Friday or Saturday.
Any not to miss foods or wines that you would suggest.
Please feel free to post your dates, questions or anything else Food and Wine related.

Hope to see y'all there.

We'll be at the BoardWalk from Oct 10 through the 18th. Don't miss the Fisherman's Pie (Lobster) at Ireland, near the Rose&Crown. One of those and a Guiness is a meal, we have ours in the R&C garden patio. The Meatball with Savingnon Blanc in New Zealand was quite good also.Do avoid WS on Fri night and Sat but FW is manageable then. Have the concert acts been announced yet?

DFi and I will make our "annual" trip Oct. 19-26. ("annual" because our family has gone every years since 1996 except the past 2 years - just wasn't in the cards for us.) We are getting married at Shades of Green Oct. 21 and spending the rest of the week Disneymooning, possibly longer. We have a rather large group of family going this year, 21 on my side and 8 on his. They 17 of which will be staying until the 26th as well - that's why we are hoping to extend our trip by a few days. =) DFi and I are staying at the BCV and the rest are booked for BWV with a few at Shades of Green.

Soooo excited for the Food and Wine festival. We normally try to make the trip the last week of Oct. Honestly, it's the best time to go because you get to enjoy Halloween, the Food and Wine Festival and then Nov. 1st they start putting up Christmas decor. This year we had to move it up a week but still very very excited.

Last year we went for my youngest 40th, (staying at BW), Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was great.

This year we are going back for birthday b'day. In fact we are marking this a girl's trip (6 of us) staying at the Boardwalk.

Already planning outfits,

October 8th thru 13th

We enjoyed their show, we'll miss them om our 10/10 -10/18 trip.

Last night we sat down and decided we were going to try to find a way to stay at BCV or BWV for our long weekend (11/1-11/4) and decided the max points we could use. This morning, I managed to find us a 1 BR at BCV for the first night and a 1 BR Standard View at BWV for the second and third nights!! A split stay wasn't ideal, but we have done it two other times with two kids in tow...I think we can handle it this time in order to be close to Food & Wine! We invited another couple and they are so excited too! We have been wanting to "share" our membership with loved ones since we got it and this will be the perfect chance!

213 days!

I can't wait until more details are announced!

My husband and I are going right at the beginning 9/27 to 10/2. We are going to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. No kid!!! Yay! We are going to stay at CR garden view. I wanted somewhere away from the hustle and bustle but Epcot accessible and something we could afford. I've always wanted to do the F&W on an adults only trip. Can't wait!
