We took our younger DD three or four times before she hit that "Magic 21" and she loved every minute of it. Seeing the chefs and eating the food offerings was enough those first few years.

DH finally gave me a little input and he said a mixology seminar sounds fun. He doesn't want to be tied down to *having* to be somewhere so he doesnt want me to book the Italy Beer Pairing. I'm kind of a planner. Anyway, is there a chance of walking up to the mixology seminars or should I just book one?

My guess is that Grand Marnier would be the first priority, followed by "3D" Disney's Dessert Discovery. Even for those, I don't think they'll sell out the first day. But I could be wrong.

wine school ?

According to the Disney Web Site, the wine schools are at the World Showplace this year.


BUT, according to the festival booklet TDC Nala posted, at least one is at the festival center and the rest are at the World Showplace.

Were the schools there last year? if so, how many people could get in at World Showplace? (I am anticipating they are not going to sell out as fast as a signature dinner)

I only remember them being at the Festival Center.

I know the Italian Regional Lunches are new this year, but based upon the French ones in previous years, what would you expect? How would they differ from the food and wine pairing?

And to answer my own question, the answer is 'no." All of the tickets for Irvine's 1 pm presentation on 10/25 have been sold. I guess DH and I are out of luck and will have to pray that I can be awake and book the Irvine Kitchen Memories right away on Tuesday morning.

I could very well be wrong (and someone will correct me if I am ), but I don't believe they release ALL the tickets for a culinary demo on the TIW/AP/DVC early booking date. I am sure every Robert Irvine ticket they had available to sell on 8/10 has been sold, but I'd be surprised if there weren't tickets available on 8/14.

Of course, that still means you have to be awake and on the phone at 7am and hope you can either book his demo or his Kitchen Memories. Good luck!

Speaking of which, Disney also misspells the name of the Top Chef contestant whose culinary demo I signed up for...her name is Grayson Schmitz, not Schmidt.
They also misspelled Ed Blinn's name on the mixology schedule. I remember a few mistakes from last year's line-ups too, but I can't recall any specific ones right now.

This is my exact situation. I have three reservations numbers spanning two months, Oct. and Nov. I'm afraid this will cause confusion and delay. Is the only advantage to giving the BWV reservation number that the bookings can be linked to my regular dining reservations?

I don't know, but as far as I am concerned there is no advantage to using your resort number when calling for these things, I guess it doesn't hurt if all you have is one reservation.

I may have already mentioned this, but if you write down the confirmation number the CM gives you, that plus the phone number you supplied when you booked will allow you to link reservations to your Disney.com ID.

I'm interested in this too. I've read reviews on the French Regional Lunch and the Italy Food and Wine Pairing. They seem similar but the regional lunch had more courses? (French regional Lunch last year was more expensive than the Italy Regional Lunch this year too...)

Anyone has any input? TIA

There really isn't a way to know for sure until the first Italian Regional Lunch has been served.

But they are supposed to have more courses, larger portions and more types of wine if the French lunches were any indication.

Tutto Gusto is also a different type of venue than Bistro de Paris.

Cat Cora 10/3 1PM

Does anyone know if the 1pm culinary demo with Cat Cora is sold out?

I really would like to see her. Kouzzina is one of my fav restaurants and none of the other culinary demos seem appealing to me on my Epcot days during my upcoming trip 10/3-10/9 (besides Jaime Deen). My Epcot days are Friday 10/5 and Sunday 10/7 (I thought if it was a celeb chef they would be there on the weekend but i was def wrong lol) So, in order for me to do either of them I would have to re-arrange all of my plans/Fantasmic Dinner res/ADRs. I prefer Cat Cora so if anyone knows if its booked up already I won't even bother trying to re-arrange my whole trip!
