One of my favorite things from last year! Goes well with the Chard they had there as well. I must have had three orders at least!

Escargot served in Chefs is in a special dish with the meat removed from the shell. Traditionally escargot is served in the shell and tongs are used to hold the shell and remove the meat. F&W escargot has the snail served in a pastry. Any way you slice it it's a snail and a very tasty one at that.

Served in pastry? Interesting. Now Im even more intriqued.

Ive been vegetarian for the past few F&W so Im excited now that Im eating meat again. A whole new world of F&W is open to me now. Ha

It's bread they serve it in, not technically pastry.

I was wondering if anybody could give me a link to some visuals of the food and drinks?
Also wondering, do you load up a card and go, or pay oop?
TBH, dh and I will only be doing this next year for our 10th Anniversary, and we want to go and just try everything. I thought loading up a card seems a little less worrisome and easier than pulling out cash at each stop. Is the card like a Disney gift card? What happens if we don't use all the cash on the card?

Also, any pictures of these plates that were mentioned in a Previous post?

Pictures of the plates are in this post http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=324 back a couple pages.

Pictures/reviews of last years items are found on the Disney Food Blog. http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2013-e...stival/#fw2012


Yes, you can load up a wrist card (or regular card - my DH doesn't like the wrist cards) to use at the booths. That is what we do. Anything left over can be used anywhere. We usually just use it at our next sit down meal. But it can be used on anything at all.

Great to know about the cards/wrist card! We will definitely go with that.

As for the plates, is this indeed something one can buy while there? Any idea of the cost?

I saw them there before, but it's anyone's guess if they'll have them again this year. I seem to recall the price being kind of $$ (at least IMO). Something like $10 or so each. I could be wrong about that though. Memory isn't what it used to be....

Allears.net has a few pictures: http://allears.net/tp/ep/fw12/2012-e...-gallery-2.htm

So does disneyfoodblog.com: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2012-e...ths-and-menus/

We paid with cash at each booth.

If you wanted to pay by card, you should be able to get a Visa cash card with a cash amount loaded on it at your bank. And then use the cash card as a credit card at the booths.

I am guessing that this year, if you are so inclined, you will also be able to tap and pay with your room key (or your Magic Band if they're working by then).

This is the real reason for the magic band - CMs won't have to handle credit cards as much and transactions will be much quicker. That's the plan at any rate.

The trouble with this is that there is usually a fee to activate those Visa cards. Disney gift cards don't have a fee that I am aware of.

Hi, Everyone!! Like you all, I am anxiously awaiting the release of more information in the coming weeks!

One thing my DH and I have started talking about are the $10-$15 seminars that they offer in the Festival Center.

I saw in my googling efforts that these typically run about an hour, but I'm wondering if they are kid friendly? We will have our two littles in tow.

Thanks! :D

Not really. I "think' they charge you for the kids, but ... I may be wrong.

Last year they had a table with some coloring stuff in the back but that's the extent of "kid friendly" Your child can color while you drink or watch the demo etc...

Older children can sit at the tables for the food demos (but I know you pay for that) They are not allowed at the tables for wine and spirit demos.
