Weekly Festival Guide

We leave Monday, October 22 for WDW. I see on the WDW website the weekly festival guides are posted; but the one for 22-28 is not up yet, any idea if that will be posted before the weekend?

I would love to print a copy before we leave.

we're leaving the day after you! what festival guide are you referring to? the only one i know of isn't on a week by week basis; it's just an overview of the whole f&w festival. i'm interested if there are other news sources out there.

if you're referring to the times guide for park shows and performances, then it is usually posted on saturday (i usually go to wdwent.com for that info). for the purposes of my itinerary, i just used this week's times guide. i imagine that next week will have similar times.

F & W crowds

Just back from stay at the Boardwalk 5th-14th. Went to Epcot very night.
Very crowded so I think I'll be going a week or two later next year also.

It is a times guide but it has the times of all the demonstrations, signings, and etc. It also has a map of the WS with the food booth descriptions. See http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/par...wine-festival/ for the PDF files for the last 4 weeks.

The last one posted is for this week.

We did this on Sunday, October 7th, and it is truly the BEST event we've ever done at F&W...

Hilda was our host and between her, and Darwin, who introduced the food, we had a fantastic time. The food was very good, and the tequila and pairings were excellent. Hilda is very energetic and interactive and so much fun!! You learn quite a bit about tequila and have a great time doing it!

We asked them to sign the mats our tequilas were on, which they did, as well as took tons of pictures afterwards...

You sit at mixed tables and there were four of us, along with another couple and we all got along really well, which of course helps!! The whole room was into it and a lot of fun!!

You start out with a Rosita margarita which is delicious! It has rose petals in it

The table is set with three champagne flutes with three different tequilas, a shot glass filled with a dark liquer and another shot glass half filled with a clear liquid that turns out to be vodka...Hilda will explain why! (Or Humberto, as I understand he is also hosting these events)...

Each of the tequilas is paired with a different course and the host will explain about each tequila and Darwin (for us, I think he's the manager of La Hacienda) will explain the food before or as it's being served. All of the servers were top of the line, patient and polite!!

There are three food courses and a dessert course. All of the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. The first course was a scallop, which I'm not particularly fond of and it was DELICIOUS! The second course was a mini pork
taco, the third course was a combination fish and steak...the fish (corvina) was light and flaky and the steak was a NY strip...both were excellent, though I like my steak on the rare side and this was definitely medium. Probably my only complaint about the meal... The dessert was a meringue which I loved, though not everyone did...some people didn't like the crunchy texture but I thought it was delicious.

After lunch was over the chef came out to answer any questions about the food...we'd never heard of corvina so he talked about that a little. We also hung around for a bit afterwards and took pictures with all of them.

They really thrive on guest interaction, so if you have any questions or comments, throw them their way!! They are a class act and this is one we would definitely do again!!

Feel free to ask any questions!!

Lisa

Loved Canada (so glad they got rid of that stinky salmon),New Zealand, Belgum, Italy, France, and the second flight of beers in Germany was our absolute favorite!!!!
We went to both evenings and really enjoyed ourselves.

I also thought that overall the offerings at WDW's F&W fest were better this year. I, however, missed the salmon (but LOVED the filet!).
