Try again. He was not sold out that quick if you were going for kitchen memories. If you were trying for just the cheap demonstration, that one was filled days ago.

Hang in There

Finally! I was told 15 min wait. After almost one hour a CM answered. I booked the Italian Food and Wine Pairing for Nov 8. It took her almost five minutes to find this event in her system, though. I was getting nervous.

So Italian F&W on Thurs.
One culinary demo and one mixology seminar on Fri.
Then we are running a 5K race at Animal Kingdom on Sat!

Now they just need to release some AP discounts for the resorts so we will have a place to stay.

I wouldn't book the wine view for the extra money. I never really used the goodies we got from being in the fancy seats. All I really wanted was the chair!
My guess is that we'll be seated at one of the large round tables and they will just put names on placards in front of seats.

We enjoyed the WVL the two times we did it in year one but just felt completely overloaded and probably missed many of the wines out on the floor.

Uh Oh. You got the black pit of the Disney phone system.

I have had this happen and...if you have another line try it. It appears that some calla get "shunted" and don't queue properly.

After an hour on hold once, I dialed in on a work phone. Got through to a CM on the work line and was still on hold on the other line. I complained and sent an email complaint, but....I doubt they really think this happens

The only thing I missed out on was Robert Irvine. Hoped for it, but didn't expect it.

I did get:

Sunday 10/21 Tequila Lunch
Monday 10/22 Culinary Demo-Oscar Prieto
Tuesday 10/23Culinary Demo-Bill Clark, Grand Floridian
Wednesday 10/24 Italian Regional Lunch 12:00
Culinary Demo-Tony Charbonnet 5:00
Mixology 6:00

I'm happy! Off the phone at 7:26am
Try again for Irvine if it was the Kitchen Memories on 10/26 you were trying to book. The CM I had couldn't see his name, I had to KNOW that the Kitchen Memories on the 26 at that time was Robert Irvine.

Hi, Seems like a few of us are doing the 3D Dessert on Oct.26th. Will there be anywhere to post that we can "meet" online if we will be at the same event?? This is the first time I am doing an event at The Food and Wine. It is my DH and I with regular seats at the 3- D Dessert. We also signed up last week to do the La Crema wine ,4pm on the 24th. . Joan

That's my guess as well. Was just hoping someone who has said they were trying might report back.

The same thing happened to me! I was sooo mad! Just got into work and am going to try calling again in a little bit, as the wait was 60 mins when I called a few minutes ago.

Most frustrating experience ever, but I finally got to book the one event I wanted.

We got the "no circuits" for 40 minutes, then my husband finally got through. He was on hold for almost an hour. By the time he got through the reserved seating for the 10/27/12 PFTS was gone. There was wine view and general. He, of course enjoying spending money, went for the wine view.

At this point I am just happy to have gotten it! But be cautioned, reserved seating for this event is sold out.

Honestly, I am happy he went for the wine view, I would have gone for general because of the costs....but I really do want to have a reserved seat.
