Has anyone actually been to that section for a concert or Illuminations? Is it a good spot? How early do you have to arrive at the seating area!

Can anyone confirm that the current Fench cosmo slush is the same as prior years or has the flavor changed? It was cranberry sluch before and it has a different name this year. I'm hoping the drink itself is the same.

I was wondering about that too. I don't expect it to be the same as there was nothing "sour" about the old cosmo slush. I'm sure it's still cranberry, though.

I can't see any real need for this for a concert. I generally walk right in to any of them

I am not familiar with these beers, are they from Canada? Is the cart only there for F&W or is it seasonal and just overlaps with F&W? I can't find them listed or included on any of the F&W menu sites, are there other carts/items not included with the menus? I am already up to $241 on just the posted menu offerings. I don't think my stomach or wallet can take much more, but I feel like I have been missing out on something special lol!

Unibroue is a Quebec brewery that makes some excellent Belgian style ales.

I apologize for not taking the time to browse this thread but I could use some F&W expertise.

My wife just saw that Bethenny Frankel will be doing an event on Nov. 3 while we're there. Even though it is my birthday I told her she could check it out I didn't see anything about making reservations or buying tickets for it so can anyone help me out? Is it a first come first served deal?

"Discussions with Bethenny Frankel, Skinnygirl®, Hosted by Beam Inc. – NEW: Bethenny Frankel—popular television personality and founder of Skinnygirl® beverages—hosts a 30-minute talk show-style seminar where she explains how she developed her unique, low-calorie adult beverage products, and her years spent creating healthy dishes in the kitchen. Saturday, November 3 at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m."

Edit: Just called Disney and the person I spoke with had no idea what I was talking about and offered no additional info.

I was there on Friday evening and the cocktail is different. It is called the Eiffel Sour Cosmo Slush, ingredients include Grey Goose Cherry Noir Vodka**, Grand Marnier, Cranberry Juice. Last year's was called the Parisian Cosmo Slush, ingredients were Ciroc Vodka, Grand Marnier, Cranberry Juice.

**(GREY GOOSE Cherry Noir combines the aroma of fresh cherries and sweet red fruits with dark fruit flavors and layers of spice.

Wow, that sounds like an improvement to me, but I've never met a cosmopolitan I didn't like.

Did you try it? Was it good? I"m normally attracted more to sweet than to sour so I"m a bit worried that they goofed with my favorite drink at F&W. It's also up to $9.75 from last year's $8.50 so I"m hoping for an improvement, not a set back.

It's the standard beer cart at the Canadian pavillion that I believe is there year round, NOT the F&W kiosk. The cart usually serves Moosehead, but during F&W they bring out some kegs of Unibroue. Usually Le Cellier is the only place you can get the beers in WDW when not during F&W.
