Oh yeah! I've never seen them in concert and I can't wait. It's our first f&w too so I'm doubly excited!

Well, the menus for this year are not out yet, so now way to know for sure but I believe in the past it was always just the soup.

Not sure if there is anywhere to just get pretzel bread but in the past at the Germany booth you could get a bratwurtz in a pretzel roll

TIA
We were there for the last weekend in 2008 and I don't remember it being particularly crowded (more than usual anyway). We were there for the opening in 2006 and it was very crowded. This year we will be there for the opening and I'm looking forward to the crowds. The middle is not bad though which is when we usually go.

This year we are lucky enough to go for four weeks - 9/27-10/25. I was planning to go fir six but family commitments forced a change there. Oh well.

The booth menus? I don't believe they are 'released' until a couple days before the opening day. The placards show up in front of the booths on the World Showcase walkway. Sometimes information for the new booths is released at the Tables in Wonderland event in late July.

Yeah, I wish they were playing when I plan to go. I saw them once at the Bottle & cork in Rehoboth! Fantastic show.

We get The Pointer Sisters (Oct 17th) & Night Ranger (Oct 18th)

Free?

I also keep seeing things from past years about "Free demonstrations" etc.
This being a budget trip free is my favorite word.

The thing is I have yet to see any details on what these are. Not just for this year but for year's past.
There are detailed lists, review, and blog post about all the one's people Pay for. LOL.

Are "free" demo's a Disney fiction or do they exist and what are they?

There are 'free' demos. But be prepared to wait in line a good 30-45 minutes prior to the free ones in order to get a seat.

The best place to read about events, IMHO, will be The Disney Food Blog. Here is a link to last years 2012 but AJ has already started 2013 segment.

They usually release the marketplace menu's at some point before the festival begins, maybe two weeks before? I can't remember from last year, maybe someone else on the thread will remember.

Quick note about the book signings - at least for the popular ones in the past they gave out wrist bands at the beginning of the day and then you cam back at the appropriate time and you had to have a band to get in line. I know some people got left out as they didn't know they needed to go early in the day to get wrist bands
