The kiosks aren't open during PM EMH, even though they list WS as open until 11pm as well?

The kiosks do not stay open during evening EMH.

They will close at 9, 10 on weekends.

You might find a few of them will be open a little later, but not for the entire EMH.

Last year, we did have dinner at Rose and Crown, so we had some vegetables with our meal there. This year, we don't have any dinner reservations booked so that we can focus on eating the kiosks food. So, besides the cranberry raisins, our day will probably be fruit/veggie short too! Oh wait a second, I think the nachos at La Cantina contain lettuce and chopped tomatoes!

Mde

I was neutral about MDE but not now after spending 45 minutes on the line with tech support. Be careful, be very, very careful, when setting up a profile.

I set a profile for my wife months ago and then forgot about it. I've been making tons of reservations for our upcoming trip using MDE. Her birthday is listed with a 2013 year. A couple of reservations for demonstrations are now showing her as an infant and I wasn't charged for her reservation. I called tech support and after being put on hold for 30 minutes I was told they can't fix it until all her reservations are canceled. WHAT? Are you kidding me??????

Of course I am not doing that, but what a colossal screw up! I'll have to fix the reservations with her as an infant though - they do show 2 prople but she wasn't charged. I think I'll do that.

They also wanted our APs unlinked.

I decided not to delete the post above about My Disney Experience problems, as the problems listed may impact the poster's festival bookings. See the first post, it notes that this thread is only for discussing the Food and Wine Festival. I don't want to start a general discussion of My Disney Experience on this thread, so if the previous post is discussed, let's stick to the festival aspect of it.

If you have culinary demonstrations everyone is supposed to be charged, even infants. There should not have been a free entry for an infant. Persons under 21 are not supposed to be able to attend beverage seminars or mixology at all. You do have a problem because they might still tell you that she needs a paid ticket.

My DME also shows one of my friends as an infant and he is older than me. But I haven't booked him for any culinary demos so I don't know if it would have been the same thing.

Thanks. I think the only thing this glitch in MDE would affect might be special events at activities like the F&W demonstrations.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Yeah I had to really scramble some days to figure out if I ate ANYTHING that wasn't a protein or a starch. (I don't count potatoes as veggies). I was a there for a week last year and I think I did F&W at some point of every day except one, so I wasn't eating many sit down meals or even CS. So I tried to grab some craisins every day and on the days I did sit down for a meal I tried to eat extra fruits and veggies. But I am a true Midwest girl. Meat and potatoes with some pasta/bread thrown in for variety dominated my choices.

But I also walked 37 miles and lost 7 pounds so I guess all's well that end's well.

What is still available

I thought in previous years someone listed what F&W events were sold out and what events still had seats. Is someone doing that this year and I just can't find it?

The DisneyFoodBlog used to show this, but I can't find it this year.

Thanks! Would love to do the Raglan Road dinner, but... that's too much to risk for a trip that could get cancelled

For most of the dinners - the menu isn't released before hand. You find out the day of.

I think I saw one for Raglan Road a month or so ago but I can't find it today.
