Thank you for the info and tips I will be calling the moment that I am allowed to. Do they usually release the theme before reservations open up?

Now I am hungry

Not sure if this is what you're asking but the theme of this year's festival is "Taste Your Way Around the World".

I should have been more specific, I meant for the Victoria and Albert's dinner

When they had a F&W in CA, I was out there every weekend and sometimes the weekdays, we can't be away from our pets long enough to do the WDW Festival justice. If I had the points and airline miles, I'd just book the whole festival and then cancel the reservations as applicable once the schedule was released!

Hey Karrit2000, I just noticed your ticker for the Destination-D, we'll be there too! Have you been to any before?

Question

DH and I will be there during the Food & Wine Festival the end of October.

We've never attended this before so it's all new to us.

What is the price range for the food at the food booths?

Thanks!

The prices range from $2.00 to as much as $10.00 depending on the food or drink.

Here are the menus and prices from last year's festival which will give you a general idea of what's offered: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2011-e...ths-and-menus/

crazy4wdw - thanks for the info.

Will they be publishing a map for the 2012 Food and Wine festival online?

They have for the last several years so I would think so. The info last year was released around July 26th so we should be getting close for an announcement for this year's festival. When the details are released, there will be numerous posts on this thread regarding the menus, special events, etc.

I didn't attend the first one at DL because the offerings seemed too much like seminars I'd attended at Disneyana Conventions & WDAC Conventions in the past. I attended the WDW one last year but was a bit disappointed in it overall. Once again a lot of the material was stuff I'd seen & heard before. But I got to visit with friends so overall I had a good time during my trip despite being disappointed in the event itself. When they finally listed the info for the seminars for this one there were quite a few that seemed of interest to me so I decided about a month ago to attend. I only have one extra full day for the parks so I'll be trying to cram as much into it as I can especially to see Cars Land.

F&W on Nov 12?

Will it still be going on 11/12? It is our first day at WDW and we planned on Epcot to catch this. Website says it runs through 11/12 but the lady we spoke to on the phone today said the last day will be Sunday 11/11 (which kind of makes more sense to end it on a Sunday than a Monday). Anyone know?

The original end date was Sunday, the 11th, but the Festival was extended to Monday, the 12th. That day is Veteran's Day, so I think they're looking to make the most of that last long weekend.

I think next year's is also tenatively schedule to cover Veteran's day. The strategy worked because we are staying until Monday instead of Sunday of that week when we go down.

Kinda like my question , we are basically only there for the last day. Will stuff still be around or is it pretty much over and done with on Sunday?
