Thanks. I was told the wait would be "over 45 minutes" when I finally got through (after dialing more than 50 times!!) But that's fine. I'm driving to my parents place this morning, so I'll be in the car for almost 2 hours...now I just get to listen to Disney music
Here's hoping my phone won't drop the call...

I'm sorry I can't answer your question....but I did want to say 'Thank You!'
I had been looking on and off and NEVER found where you could book these tickets online. I called this a.m. ---- was told approx 9 minute wait. 35 minutes later I came here to see how other people were doing with F&W stuff while I was on hold. I saw your post and was surprised to read the ' reg seats online'. I googled that specific event and was able to book it! I was always on the general listing of events that didn't offer a booking option. I can't help but think Im not the only one who missed this.....but maybe I am...

Still trying to get through on the phone, busy signals and busy lines are all the responses I get!! I booked 3D dessert party on line but really hope to upgrade to sweet seats if I ever get through. Both Cat Cora and Jamie Deen that I wanted to see were sold out at 7am! Still hoping for Tequila Lunch on Sept 29.

I am totally gonna cry.

Phone was answered after 52 minute wait, CM started looking up my requests, and then apparently her headset died?

She kept saying "Can you hear me? Are you there?" and then the call was disconnected.

Back in queue with wait of 30 minutes.

Finally success! After holding for 55 minutes I got through to a very helpful agent who knew what she was doing. She did ask for my hotel information at after the earlier report of someone being hung up on I just went ahead and gave the info. The good news is I got both events I wanted:

Italian Food & Wine Luncheon on 10/24
Mexican Tequila Lunch on 10/26

I did like that she was able to pull up the event and put them in my cart and then give me the whole rules spiel at once at the end and took my credit card once at the end.

Now to shower and go to work!

Hooray!!!!! Got Wine View Lounge for Party for the Senses 10/13.
I was only asked my phone number and to verify my email and she found me in the system. I was not asked where I was staying.
She said the policy was not up but she just reminded me of the highlights. The call was very quick once I got on.
Good luck everyone!

Nine night trip for food and wine...on pins and needles about getting what we wanted. Called at 7:00 am exactly and was told as 9 minute wait. After 53 minutes booked reserved seating for PFTS and the new Italian regional lunch.
