After hearing 2 years in a row of wonderful things about the Food and Wine Classic at Swan and Dolphin, I SO want to go in 2012, any idea when it will be yet?

During the presentation we attended they said it would always be Columbus Day. That's probably better than hearing it from a bus driver (he was the food and beverage manager) but I'd still take it with a grain of salt.

Does anyone know what email address or street address to send comments about the Food & Wine Classic? I want to suggest that they sell two separate wristbands. One for food & wine and one for just food. DH and I don't drink very much and could not justify the price increase this year to attend. We really enjoyed it last year, and would have loved to go again. In fact, we booked the weekend at the Dolphin well before anything was announced. Once we heard about the price increase, we cancelled. There are more than twice the amount of booths with alcohol than with food and it doesn't really pay to spend $75 on a wristband if you're not going to drink anything. For about the same amount of money we would have spent on two wristbands and only a handful of food booths, DH and I were able to sample at least one thing from EVERY booth at the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. IMHO if you're only looking to eat you get more for the same amount of money and a larger variety at F&W in Epcot.

I agree with you about the separate wristbands. If you were only there for the food the tickets may have been a better option. We did enjoy the event though and most likely will be back next year.

It looks like the wristbands are all inclusive again.. no separate ones for food and drinks. The price has also increased to $80. I wonder if there is a way to find out how many food booths vs drink booths there will be this year.
