I would not be able to attend any of these as they all take place on weekdays - except October 25 which is not a weekend I will be there.

I'm guessing there may be a backlash about the fees for wine and culinary demos.

Todd's is usually on a weekend but you did that last year. It was yummy but I don't think I would do it two years in a row. Too many other things to try.

I agree there will be grumblings about the fees. I'm okay with it because I felt (and witnessed) people just come into those seminars to get the wine and then leave before the winery rep was finished with the presentation. This way those of us that are really interested in learning things will get a seat.

I'd do Todd's 2 years in a row if it's the only one I can get to - will wait to see what his dates are.

People's expectations are going to be much higher if they're actually paying money - can't wait to see how that works if it's true.

You are getting a standing ovation from my husband and I!
I don't mind paying a bit for this. We have learned a lot at these and Disney usually gets the winemakers or the winery owners in. We also hate to see people sit for 2 minutes drink the wine and leave usually to get in the next line for more "free" booze!

The backlash will likely come from some of the regulars - not the vacationers. Probably the very ones that leave and then get back in line.

I would be interested in knowing how they will handle payment - at the event? or prebooking?

I agree it will be VERY interesting! I hope it all goes well. So far I am excited and I know I will have fun no matter what. We are planning on two PFTS again and who knows if we will pay the bump up. We don't sit so it would only be if the wine is something special.

By the way I know I am the billionth person to tell you but your icons are great!

I'll be going down to one PFTS and based on reports (it will be Oct. 31 which is one of the last ones) may be up to paying the bump fee (seeing as I can't spend money on signatures unless Todd comes through!)

I'm speculating payment on the day of the event. They might have a ticket kiosk/cash register set up in the Welcome Center for the wine and food demos. That way there doesn't need to be noisy line that would be disturbing the ones that are in session. Although some people may get in line to be able to sit in the front row. Time will tell ...

Boo Yeah!

The October 15th Flying Fish dinner with Rick Tramonto would be the one I'd be trying to get into. Here's the fun part: If I do manage to get into this event, this will be the SECOND time that I've had a Chicago chef named Rick cook a meal for me at the food and wine festival. The first Rick was Rick Bayless. He cooked a fantastic Lunch and Learn meal in 2003. I enjoy the irony of traveling 1000 miles to have a chef local to my area cook for me.

Oh, and if you've read my first Larded and Loaded Tour food report, Tramonto was the chef I raved about because he served lobster bisque "shooters" at Party for the Senses that were obscenely good. (I took down the link temporarily to fit in the sig pics Catherine made for me.)

Speaking of the Party, I don't think I'm going to it this year. What the heck is "classical" food, anyway? I am thinking of going to Bistro de Paris that night, instead. And V&A the following night. That leaves Wednesday as my dedicated "nosh" day at Epcot. That works for me.

As for the seminars, I'd be very happy if the fee cuts back on the freeloading repeat offenders who don't stay for the talk. I haven't gone to any last year, but it prior years I didn't see people doing that much. I really enjoyed the ones I went to. I still remember the cognac one I did. I learned a lot from that presentation.
