Kelly, just posted on your DLR trip report that I'm loving that and now I find you over here? Totally hanging in here with you because this October will be our first trip for F&W. We are staying at SSR October 9-13. So, unleash the details, I'm ready to learn!

F&W is such an awesome time! I'm so anxious about the details! I found this website yesterday: http://www.foodwinefest.com/ Now they just need to post already!!



...I have Crystal Palace now booked 8:30, so it's pre-rope drop!! Horray!!

I am going to go to F&W at Disneyland next year. I will be interested to compare the two.

Hi Kelly!

Just found your PTR and I'm joining in! I'll be going to WDW in October too, but I'll be there from the 19th - 29th and we're staying at CSR. That's so awesome that you get to go so often!

And to all the PP's trying to get ADRs for Le Cellier - YES it's CRAZY popular this year! I was on the dining boards the other day and people are getting shut down left and right! Good luck to all of you trying to get ressies there! I'm so glad my travel partners (my boyfriend and my brother) haven't expressed an interest in eating there!

Ugh...Only 192 days to go for me!

Welcome along! I stayed at CSR in August of '09. Gorgeous property! I have lots of pictures in my TR from then.

Up at the butt crack of dawn on a Saturday to get my LC ADR...I nabbed 4:05. A little early, but it'll have to do. If it were up to my Mom and I, we'd rather go elsewhere, but my Dad wants it and he so rarely asks for things that I had to try! I would not be surprised if we wind up canceling this one... With my luck it'll be the same night as a F&W dinner!

I've been checking Le Cellier every morning (tip: according to my clock, the next day becomes available at 5:57am...) and so far it's been 4 or 8:45 that are available. Nothing during a normal dinner time. I'd suggest that if you're staying on Disney property, pick a day later in your stay and MAKE IT FIRST if you want it!


...oh, and I also realized that I have scheduled Kouzzina and then Jelly Rolls for the night before we get up early for the Crystal Palace breakfast. Hmmm, I might need to rethink that.

Well, ADRs are done! Check it off the list!

I have the Tea @ the Grand Floridian on Saturday. Jiko on Sunday, Kouzzina on Monday (then Jellyrolls is the plan), Crystal Palace breakfast pre-park opening on Tuesday, Victoria & Alberts on Wednesday, and Le Cellier on Thursday. I don't have anything scheduled for Friday. Saturday we'll be heading out.

So...they're ok. I don't know why, but I'm just not satisfied with them. I don't like the order they're in I guess it doesn't matter too much because I'll probably change everything around once the F&W schedule is released!

You are on the ball. I can make my PS for Disneyland in the next couple of days but I think that we may just play it by ear.

I always felt like I was so behind planning for DLR. It's just not needed like it is at WDW!

Has anyone seen the new Verizon ad where the family is in the MK, Mom has the phone and Dad leaves and goes on Dumbo?

Have you noticed that when they shoot at the castle Partners is missing?? It drives me bonkers....it doesn't make sense! Why would they do that!?!

I think it depends on when you are going to Disneyland. Like for instance we are going in June and I expect crowds.

Hopefully you'll be able to get everything you want!



I'm getting impatient, I want that F&W schedule released!! There's not much to do until it gets released besides sit here and twiddle my thumbs!

Oh, in other news, we're having a national meeting the week before my trip...in Orlando! And the rumor is that we're staying at the Hilton in Bonnet Creek! Double After seeing the schedule, I might activate that Annual Pass early if I have any downtime
