Finally figured out where to book on-line. Book 3-D Desert party for 10/5. Was not able to get Jamie Deen demo on 10/6. Disney does a terrible job on there web sites. Cannot believe there was not a link from there Food & Wine Site.

Party for the senses with reserved seats for 10/27. First time we are NOT doing the wine room. We'll see but I"m guessing just the reserved seats will be fine for us.

Sweet Sundays with Gale Gand on 10/28


Yay! Good luck to all of you still dialing or on hold. Don't give up!

The CM also read the policies for me for just the first event and said they were the same for all events so she wasn't going to read them over and over for each one. Good thing because she sounded like she'd just gotten up herself and hadn't had her coffee yet. She spoke in a sloooooow southern drawwwwwwwl. I was ready to choke her but as long as she booked what I wanted, I didn't hassle her to hurry up.
congrats!

I was told 9 minute wait as well but but 39 minutes later I am still on hold

Question: If I make 3D Dessert or PFTS reservations online, will they let me upgrade them to the special seating later? Once things calm down a bit (and assuming there are special seats still available)?

35 minutes. And then I got a CM who was a little slow. But I booked Wine View lounge at the 10/13 PFTS. Decided to splurge since my schedule is too undecided to book much else.

Side topic- I love the Disney hold music as much as the next gal, but Small World? Really? Just hearing that song over and over while on hold is probably enough to make weaker mortals hang up. Hmmm. Maybe its a part of a disney conspiracy to clear the system?

We're doing PFTS with reserved seat on 10/27 also - was told we will be sharing a table (fine with me) - I don't think the WVL is worth the extra $100 given this new option...kinda surprised some people are still booking it.

I clicked "dining event" at top, then selected "culinary demo" then chose the date on the right side 10/3.

The only thing that showed up was the Raglan Road chef.

I'm still on hold...maybe there are some tickets available online and some on the phone? i dunno :/
Thanks- I got through one online, and then was connected with an agent to get the rest. Now I need to go back b/c DH wants to do a 3D dessert party.

<<<I called at 7 and was on hold for 26 minutes. I did get both events I wanted:
11/7 F&W pairing at Tokyo Dining
11/8 Italian F&W pairing>>>>>

Ugh, I called at 7, was told 15 minute wait and I am still waiting. I want to book the 11/8 Italian F&W pairing, if I make it we will be there with you, Krissalee.

I was very fortunate and was speaking with someone at 7:01am. Unfortunately, Robert Irvine was sold out already. She was as shocked as I was. I guess Annual Passholders, DVC members, etc. Oh well. We will still have a really good time. Got some other reservations that I wanted. Good luck everyone.

After you do get through and booked ask for a supervisor and let him/her have it

I have:

10/16 Italian beer pairing at Via Napoli
10/17 Italian regional wine luncheon
10/19 Mexican tequila lunch
You have the same Tequila lunch as us

DH and I are really looking forward to it.

And I got through straight away first time no hold nothing. Called bang on 12pm Uk time. The CM I spoke to said it was crazy busy on the phones I must have just been luky.

Wow! That is unbelievable and unprofessional. Too bad you didn't get an opportunity to get his name and report him.
