I agree with this, the lamb slider was a bit of a let down. The mushroom filet in Canada sounds tasty provided that it is not cooked well done.

Ok after reading that it wasn't the best I'm not so upset.

Oh, no! DH is going to be sooo disappointed. He loved the lamb slider. Regarding this blog, could someone please point me to it? How do I subscribe to get it reguarly?

We loved the lamb slider, too. We're not worried about the meatball, it's from the New Zealand booth, it's a lamb meatball and it's to be served with tomato chutney. Sounds it's basically the same thing only without the bun. Edited to add: I don't remember the chutney ever being "sweet" as mentioned above. We both thought it was quite tomatoey...if that's a word. Maybe it depended on who was mixing the chutney that day.

You are better off with the lamb chop. I think that is Australia's booth. That is if it is back (probably will be). I seem to remember it getting good reviews last year.

Has anyone done 3D? We are thinking about doing it but are not sure if it is everything some of the bloggers make it out to be.

I did the 3D Dessert Party once and feel no need to do it again, but dessert is not my favorite thing.

For those looking for info from the Disney Food Blog, links to their Festival pages are in the first post.

I found the Slider last year to be quite gross also. Sounds like this years offering will actually be the same ground lamb & chutney as was in the slider last year, yuck. I liked it much better a few years ago when it was actually slices of lamb on the slider bun. I won't be trying the "Meatball".

On another note I just realized yesterday that I will be at Disneyland on Aug 14 when the special events go on sale. Guess I'll be getting up at 4AM PDT again just like last year.

Dates for Special Events

I know the booking for F&W events begins on 8/14, but does anyone have any idea when the events will actually be announced? Is it before 8/14?

The info is slowly starting to surface. We usually have a good idea of almost everything by about a week before the events go on sale. Just keep checking this thread & the Disney Food Blog for info.

I did it last year. I enjoyed it but I found I "ran out room" quickly. There's only so much dessert you can eat at one time, at least for me. There were some fresh fruit options. I dont think I'll do it again this year.

I felt the same as you after trying the Dessert Party. We did it two years ago. It was really hot when we were there and I found I couldn't really enjoy too much of it. Too much sweetness in a small amount of time. I did take advantage of some of the cheese selection but I probably should have had it before I started on the desserts. The choices were yummy but I don't think this is an event we would attend again.
