Non-resort guests at evening EMH is a problem at all the parks now. I recall about 3 years ago, dh and I wandered around the kiosks happily until midnight. No lines. It was great!

Now the kiosks don't stay open late. Further, as castmemberb4 notes, the new policy with respect to EMH is non-resort guests can stay and do everything but ride the rides.

That's why Disney doesn't do wristbands for EMH anymore. They want non-resort guests to feel more than welcome to eat and spend! (And, Disney said it was halting wristband distribution in order to be green and not create waste from used wristbands. Right. I swear Disney has better spin-meisters than the gov't.)

Result: Crowded parks, long lines at stores and kiosks and crowded restaurants.

Another benefit of staying on-site bites the dust!

The Waldorf at Bonnet Creek is looking more and more attractive!

In that map, they include New Orleans. Is it back this year? I missed that one! I thought it was a special booth just for last year.

New Orleans is just a food kiosk this year.

Last year, Louisiana had a large display area with cooking demos, entertainment, a shop, and displays, in addition to the food kiosk.

I have seen the lists of what is at each kiosk.

However, has anybody seen a list with the actual prices for each item?

Thank you.

I asked this a few weeks ago and was ignored - hopefully you'll have better luck.

You were not ignored. I stated that we don't usually see a list of prices until someone posts it here. Deb from AllEarsNet usually has it posted at the first weekend. There's a history of prior years' festival kiosks with pricing on AllEarsNet. On the Food and Wine link.

That's where I usually look for prices anyway.

No prices for 2009 booth offerings have been released to my knowledge.

Often, people don't post when they don't know the answer. That's to keep from having a whole string of posts reading "I don't know the answer." But it does appear that Briar Rosie did attempt to answer the PP's post.

MORE INFO! Little on teh wine view lounge and Beer Hop!
Ok can I BE MORE excited!?




Sep. 18, 2009 (McClatchy-Tribune Regional News delivered by Newstex) -- Imagine setting a table that stretches for than more than a mile -- 1.2 miles to be exact. Epcot executive chef Jens Dahlmann knew that preparing for the 14th annual Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, which starts next Friday, was a daunting challenge.

But guest and cast feedback from past festivals made his objective clear.

"My goal became authenticity and fresh looks at these cuisines," says Dahlmann. "We are showcasing the world, so we need true tastes of the world. And the fact is, we have that essential knowledge within our immense and diverse culinary team."

Dahlmann held internal cook-offs to fine-tune dishes he knew he wanted on the 2009 menu. "It gave everyone on the culinary team a chance at taking ownership of this event."

From the cook-offs he selected staff-refined dosas (crepe-like street food with veggie fillings) for the Indian kiosk and an arroz con pollo (a chicken and rice dish) for the Puerto Rican kiosk.

He also rethought how the food was presented. At some kiosks in the past, desserts weren't fast sellers.

"Sometimes guests are more interested in savory not sweet. Moet and Chandon's champagne kiosk, located at the entrance to the World Showcase promenade, was a perfect place to add classic European confections," he said. "Individual kiosks will still offer a sweet treat. But this year, as guests pass by the sparkling wine, they now have an appropriate food pairing."

They also have added an $8 price tag to the 45-minute culinary demos and wine seminars at the Festival Welcome Center, which were free in previous years. Dahlmann said the idea to charge for those events actually came from guest feedback.

"A ticket guarantees a seat," he said.

In the welcome center, a state-of-the-art kitchen demonstration stage is replacing the trade-show feel of past culinary demos. Among the celebrity guests and authors scheduled to take that stage are Jamie Deen and Bobby Deen (check out my conversation with Paula's sons in Wednesday's Cooking and Eating section), Patti LaBelle, Cat Cora, Alan Wong, Suvir Saran and Andrea Immer Robinson.

At the pricey but always fab Party for the Senses, held every Saturday night throughout the festival, guests who like VIP attention can tack on $75 to the $135 cost for admission to the Wine View Lounge. The exclusive seating area has private tables, a premium bar and an artisanal cheese station.

"And they will be greeted with a signature wild-hibiscus sparkling wine," says Dahlmann. The petals of the ruby flowers unfurl as they are tickled by the bubbles of the Italian prosecco. It's an ultra-elegant presentation.

While wine is center stage, beer is getting a bump in prominence this year with a "Beer Hop" between the France and Morocco pavilions. For $12, guests can sample four brews from a selection of ales, lagers and craft beers from around the world.

And tequila will undoubtedly get its due this year as well. Open now but likely new to festivalgoers, La Cava del Tequila is a 30-seat bar inside the Mexico pavilion. With more than 70 tequilas ($8-$50) and lots of tapas-style eats, it's another opportunity to toast the culinary celebration.

Dahlmann, who oversees a team of 350 culinary professionals, promises fan favorites for the wine festival menu as well.

"The food and formats that work year after year are important to the overall success of the festival," he said. "We think our new twists will be just as successful."

Beer awaits festivalgoers

The Boston Beer Co. (NYSE:SAM) , the folks who make Samuel Adams, are hosting the "History of Beer in America" with daily demonstrations at Epcot's American Adventure Pavilion.
