Great advice on this thread about weekends. I'm going to have to make some changes to my timetable. I come off a Fantasy cruise on Sat 28th Sept and had planned on hanging out in Epcot until check-in at BWV. May need to re-think this. Do people know if Future World also gets crazy crowded on Saturdays and Sundays?

I'm staying at the BWV - BoardWalk view from 28th Sep - 3rd Oct, then moving to AKV for the next 6 nights. Have rented points. Can't wait. Have been dreaming about this holiday for years.

My DS (6) and I will be there Oct 14-20th staying at the BC. We will probably take advantage of a weekday visit since he is with me.

I can't wait my first visit in the fall, first stay at BC and first F&W.

We will be there in Oct during this. Can someone explain how it works? I know it is foods from different parts of the world but do you just walk around from booth to booth to see what is offered? Are all of the food booths in the same area or are they mixed within each area of Epcot? I am not very adventurous when it comes to eating but my husband would love to try lots of different things. We will have our two boys with us so I assume that wont be an issue. Do you pay to get in this section of the festival or is it part of your normal admission? Also, is there a menu printed in advance so you know who has what or do you just have to walk around and check out each vendor?

We do F&W Festival every year . . .last year we did it twice! I'm waiting to see who the performers will be before I commit to a certain date. We usually go around our Anniversary (10/10)

Last year we were there for Starship and Dennis DeYoung. I'm hoping to see Dennis on the lineup for this year, if not, I am thinking 10/16 - 10/19.

It's a wait and see game . . .

Here's a link you may find helpful:
http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2012-e...wine-festival/

We just wander from booth to booth looking for something new, the Fisherman's Pie in Ireland was particularly good, a lobster dish big enough to be a meal, we'd get two of those with a Guiness each and have them in the Rose&Crown garden patio. There's no charge to peruse the booths, there are presentations that have a fee. I recommend getting a small plastic card on a wristband. You give them $$ or swipe a credit card and the money goes on the plastic. When you buy something at a booth, a quick swipe and it's done, no carrying around a pocketfull of loose change. You can keep the card and re-load it next year.

My favorite time of year! I currently have ressies to stay at BWV from Nov 4-8 and the move to AKL on Nov 8. I'll visit Epcot every weekday during the trip.

OOH! OOH! We'll be there!!!

Going for the W&D Half which I'm thinking will be the 9th, but waiting for sure before making ressies. Always get a great deal at the Royal Plaza (thanks to connections), but think I'm going with one of the race host hotels for transpo convenience.

Also, as soon as we see if Sister Hazel is playing, we'll buzz up for that weekend as well . Love those guys!

We will be there from September 30th to October 8th staying at the BCV. This will be our 5th food and wine festival. Don't miss the Germany booth and my favorite booth is Greece. Have fun and go on an empty stomach.

We'll be there on our honeymoon Oct 10 to 17 splitting our stay between OKWV and a savannah view in Kidani. Anyone know when reservations for special events usually open? Is it August? Want to put it on the calendar as were hoping to get into a few things and I knowing may get crazy since it's a holiday weekend!

I know there is typically a brunch most Sundays does anyone remember what nights are typically the Party for the Senses or the Chocolate dessert/Illuminations Party (can't remember that name) It seems that we always have our dining booked and don't want to give the good ressies when the party info comes out 3 months later. I would like to try and plan better this year.
We'll be there (at BCV) during that time-we're arriving 10/19, then DH will leave at some point during the week (he has to go back to work) and I'll stay on at BCV til the weekend. This is our fifth year at the F&W festival. I can't wait til the Eat to the Beat schedule comes out!

We will be taking advantage of the preview night, since we are leaving on 9/27. Is there anything else that may get scheduled early that we can take advantage of?

My husband and I will be there Sept 29th-Oct 5th.. celebrating our 20th as well... without kids!!! This will be our first Food and Wine and not sure how things work with it. No matter what, it will be a fun time! Congrats on your 20th as well!!
