Is the Florida booth really new? I thought they've had Florida booths before? I'm really excited for the vegan one though, and think it's great that Disney is adding more special diet options.

[QUOTE=Arynrm1;44999688]I'm not arriving until Nov 10 so I really hope that it is open until November 12th!


That would give me another day to enjoy. Do you think it will be crazy busy on the Monday because it's veterans day? I need to change my whole plan for this extra day.

I'm waiting to see how the crowd predictions will change for this extra day too. We're not arriving the evening of Nov 9th and were planning on going Sunday but now we're wondering if Monday will be less crowded or more crowded since it's a holiday.

This will be our first full week visit to WDW, and I couldn't be more excited that we will be there during F&W! Our oldest DD is a foodie, too so we are really looking forward to sharing with her!

DH and I have been going for many years and we felt the way you did too, BUT it is well worth the $. We have found the food portions to be larger and the wine was definitely more than just the tiny sip you got when it was free. Just be sure to try and sign up ahead (assuming they have a savings for that).

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.)

There is another runDisney event on the 29th, the Tower of Terror 10 Mile Run, but since that takes place in the Studios, I don't know why they would not have a PFTS that night.

I don't know if anyone noticed this, but in the Disney Parks Blog, someone asked Pam Brandon when they can start making reservations for the PFTS dates and Pam replied August 14. I would assume that's the same reservation date for the rest of the events.

Congratulations!! Baby's going to get to do some good eatin'!!

This will be our first F&W and I am SO excited! If I had to rank DH and my favorite pasttimes, Disney, international travel and food are pretty much tied for first along with Cardinal baseball (obviously from my Avatar), so this is the perfect storm for us.

Any advice for a first timer other than avoid the weekends if possible and utilize the wrist gift cards?

We had not initially planned to attend F&W, but when planning I realized we would arrive on the last day. After talking to DH, we decided we wanted to go even though we knew it would be very crowded. Well, now they have added an extra day...Monday, Nov 12th (Veteran's Day). I'm wondering if it would be worth the trouble of moving some ADRs and plans around to attend F&W on Monday. Moving the ADRs might prove to be difficult. I'm not really sure it's going to be any less crowded since it's Veteran's day. I'd really appreciate any thoughts.

For those who has been before...any advice? Can you use DP snacks for items at F&W booths? Do they come out with a menu in advance? Is the F&W gift card any different from the regular Disney gift card...other than the picture on the card?

Do you think that they're skipping PFTS on the 29th because they'll be prepping for Epcot's 30th the next day? Maybe there will be something going on in that space?

No one knows for sure until Disney announces it but last year (and prior years) you were able to use your SC for all food items at the booths with the exception of the one food item that had alcohol (Grand Marnier on ice cream). I'm 99.9999999% sure that they will again this year.

Yes, the release the menus in advance. Last year I made a listing from the official menu awhile in advance.
