Gift Cards

Does anyone know if you can use a gift card from one year to the next? We put too much money on last years and wonder if we can use the balance this year. Thanks in advance for any help.

Absolutely! Think of it as a themed-Disney gift card. No expiration.

We are doing things a little differently this time. We've decided that since we spend the majority of our time at Epcot we're going to stay at an Epcot resort. I only made one ADR, and we're going to focus on the booths the remainder of the time.
Any early info on PFTS yet?

Ah, okay. Well, that at least makes sense. Thanks!

can't wait to go! This will be our 3rd trip to F&W and our first use of our brand new DVC membership!! Couldn't be more excited!

So in order to book the best "extra events" what is the trick? Stalk the F&W website at a specific time and try to book that way? Or is over the phone better? Are there extra discounts for DVC?

In the past two years the only events that could be booked online were the wine seminars and food demos (aka deminars). Everything else had to be booked via phone. The best course of action is to have multiple people calling at exactly 7 am on the day the bookings open up.

Regarding discounts, in the past there have been discounts for DVC\TIW\AP for the deminars only. Last year I believe the discounted tickets were only for the weekday deminars. We'll have to wait and see what this year brings.

PFTS is usually held on most Saturdays. Though in the past couple of years they seem to have been not having it on the first Saturday of the Festival.

And last year they took one of them away for a kid-friendly healthy demo.

I'm waiting not so patiently for info on the culinary demonstrations. For several years, I've been "on strike"-refusing to attend the culinary demos since they started charging for them. I can still remember when they were free-the last year was 2008, I think. One day it rained, and I spent the entire afternoon just going from free culinary demo and then getting in line for the next one! It was so much fun-and free! But now I'm a Food Network addict, so I've decided I really want to go, even if I have to pay. So I'm waiting

that was apparenty attended by only one kid. However, it did sell out, and got good reviews from those who went. We'll see if they repeat, and if it means there will again be a weekend without a PFTS.

We have news now that there will be no PFTS on September 29 or November 10 (first and last Festival weekends - look for events related to the Wine and Dine Half Marathon on the last weekend - no idea what will happen on the first weekend although I understand the First Bites event will be discontinued this year.)
