There was a thread that lots of people were using and then she turned it into a sticky! So there was something sooner...

Bringing this thread back to life!

Booked JD's flights yesterday. Airtran $69 fare was available for the flight home to ATL ($137 was the best I could find for the flight to MCO ) Seems Airtran sale fares are only good Tuesdays & Wednesdays - but that's an improvement over the past few months.

JD arrives Friday morning (10/12) - in plenty of time for the Food & Wine Classic! (I arrive on 10/7 ) We fly home the afternoon of 10/17.

No ADRs yet (except Wanyama on 10/16). Waiting to see what paid events Disney releases.

Yes they have!! I sat next to a SW Mgr on my flight home from MCO last week. We talked a bit about the merger and how it would still be a couple of years before it's complete. I mentioned my displeasure with the lack of good Airtran fares since this acquisition and asked if he would please do something about it!!

And since we were both sitting in Business Class, I assured him that he too would miss it when it was gone! (of course, that decision was made long ago )


Brandi, I will let you know when the envelope arrives!

To continue this thread's reincarnation... Our rooms at the Dolphin booked, S&D two night F&W Classic tickets are bought and here, airfare is purchased. Thinking about buying a couple of discounted Hoppers from Undercover Tourist so that I can save some money on our AP purchases in October.

Unfortunately the only paid event that I am interested in is probably not going to happen. I really wanted to do a French Regional Lunch but it looks very likely that they won't happen this year, due to the work in the French Pavilion. I am hoping I am wrong, but word from those in the know is that they will be absent from the lineup this fall.

I've been meaning to comment on this. I also heard that the events at the Bistro were not happening due to renovations. However, I looked it up.yesterday and the Bistro is scheduled to reopen on opening day of F&W. I'm going to hold out hope that they start both the Grand Mariner Tasting and the French Regional Lunches in the second weekend of the festival.

We might also consider a wine it beer pairing meal, or maybe tequila!

Oh, that would make us so happy (Bistro opening for F&W!)

DH (aka "JD"! ) has never done F&W and I would like him to experience a Pairing. I hope Disney has its act together this year and gets the F&W paid events released in a timely manner!
