Especially for vegetarian. And this was not one of the cheap demos, it was a 2 hour affair that cost ~$50. I was bummed.

There will be plenty of availability on Tuesday, Aug. 14 for most seminars and demos.

The only exception might be some well-known, TV celebrity presenters. Even then, Disney is likely to hold back some inventory for Tuesday.

In addition, some inventory for all seminars and demos is held back for sale at the Festival Center on the day of the event.

I was wondering this as well. I'll be booking PFTS for 10/6, hopefully there will be some of the reserved seating spots open still.

There's no advance booking for PFTS. Nobody can book that until the 14th.

Not just you. Same thing happens to me. I open it on my computer and it's 2011, open it on my phone and it's 2012. IDK why it would be that way since it's the same link. Technology

Apparently, the file name did not change from 2011 to 2012. If your browser thinks it already has the file, it may not fetch a new one from the server. Try clearing your browser's cache. (Be careful only to clear the cache, not to reset browser cookies and other saved data in your browser.)

It's also possible you are fetching a "new" file, but the 2011 file is cached somewhere along the way, such as on an intermediate Akamai server or other caching server in your ISP's network path. Forcing a reload of the file from your browser or PDF viewer should work, but it doesn't always.

Disney should have given the 2012 file a new name.

If you are seeing last year's page, press and hold the Control key and press F5. This works on many browsers to fetch the latest version of the page from the server rather than displaying cached information.

There's a big difference between snacking at an outdoor booth in the hot sun and having a relaxing table service meal with all the other menu options.

Based on the previous year's kiosk serving size and price, I'd wait until your LC lunch to get the soup and filet. The kiosk is a decent alternative if you don't want a reservation, but you don't get very much.

Well this assumes you find sitting on top of the table next to you while being overcharged "relaxing"

I would do the kiosk and,skip the overpriced resturant.

Bumping my question...

How long do wine tastings last? And anyone have feedback on Heitz Wine Cellars? I see someone above would be willing to pay for PFTS if they are there. I assume it means they are outstanding?

Times to call?

I have seen and read different times for calling tomorrow (for TIW/AP/DVC).

I'm not sure if it's 7am, 8am or 9am?? DVCmember.com does say 8am for member services, but I thought I'd read 7am for 407 WDW FEST??

Can anyone confirm? Thanks so much for any help!! We are only reserving a couple demos so we hope to get them!

Excited to finalize our plans!!!

Lisa
