I was paying with my credit card the first day we were there and I didn't have to sign.

The griddled cheese from the Greek booth is very mild with a texture of a melted mozzarella, not a fresh mozz, but the kind you might find on pizza. Not bitter at all and it does have some honey drizzled over it.

Can't wait to try the griddled cheese!!

Changes to the normal WS?

I read the posts about the different beers in Canada during the F&W (at a beer cart right? Not the festival booth?)

Are there changes or additions to the normal offerings in any other countries?

Thanks!

No you won't have to sign a receipt at each booth. We had to sign one receipt on our first day here but have not been asked to sign one since.

I expect you will only have to sign at France. I have no idea why they are so obsessed with signatures but I had to sign for my Disney reward card and it doesn't have a name on it! Not sure what signing proved, but there you go

I thought any preview days and soft-opening days are not until November. The official grand opening is December 6.

Perhaps some elements will have limited previews before then.

As far as I know there is no passholder preview of the New Fantasyland scheduled for October 8.

The days for the previews are November 3, November 10 and November 11.

The SIGN-UP for the previews on the passholder website takes place October 8.

It is a preview, not a soft opening. The passholders (who must sign up in advance) will be taken in groups on a "tour." They will ride Little Mermaid and it says there will be a tour of Be Our Guest, but not that anyone will actually be eating there.

Thanks for clearing that up!! I didn't think that it sounded right...we walked by there yesterday and it did not even look close to being finished...
We will be home by then...

Am I the only one who thinks the new 'brown' trays are just horrid!! how does food look nice in a brown tray .. surely any sauce will just get soaked into the tray ..

I am very disappointed at Disney losing the white logo'd plates .. any chef surely knows food looks better on a clean white plate

the fish trays for feeding the animals at seaworld are nicer than these .. and they are white!

Disney are going cheap on us me thinks .. and for what you pay for these tiny tasters they could at least put them on a plate

My husband said he noticed a few sauces that disappeared into the tray.

Just got home last night, and overall I thought the booths were very good this year. I tried a lot of new-to-me items, and was pretty impressed with most of them. I'll be posting full reviews with pics later, but my favorite was probably the scallop from the New Zealand booth.

Thanks for all your responses. My DH wants to use KTTW and charge to the room, and I didn't want to be the one slowing the line down to sign. So I wanted to use gift cards, but he'd rather just have the one KTTW and put the GS on our room charges later. I guess it won't matter much.

I noticed the brown boats but it didn't bother me. Items don't slip off them and I would think they are made of recycled material and are more 'green' friendly. Didn't change the taste of anything I tried.

I agree. I think they are better then the plates since you always have to walk with your food and it is more secure.

They do have a light coating of something so I didn't notice any sauce soakage.
