Just out of curiosity -- did anyone book an Italian Regional Luncheon for Saturday, September 29? When I called back on August 14, the CM at first told me it was booked b/c it was showing unavailable, but after talking to her supervisor, was told that it was not actually being offered on that day (even though the listing had it for Wed/Sat during F&W -- no exclusion for the first Saturday). I had asked the CM to search for it like 5 times while we were on the phone booking other things before she relayed the info (I assume it wasn't to just get me to stop asking here to try again!). That was the one event I really wanted to do, so I was really bummed that after being on hold for 30 minutes that morning, it had already booked. I felt a little better knowing that it hadn't even been offered.

I booked a Tequila Luncheon instead, so it all turned out fine, but I was just curious if anyone else had been told the same thing.

So, what's up with the Andrea Robinson wine school on the 30th? It's already sold out? I made ressies back on the 14th, but that was one I didn't think would fill up, given the expense.

We did a wine school back in 2010, and it was fabulous -- the master winemaker for Conundrum was the presenter, and he walked us through creating the right Conundrum blend by having us mix pure chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, muscat, etc. It was very cool. But it wasn't close to being full, as best as I could tell.

F&W wrist gift card

Can I buy them ahead of time outside of Epcot? Do you pay extra for the wrist strap?

I'm not finding them available online. I've heard they have pool themed ones at the water parks, but we're not going there. I would rather not stand in another line just to get a gift card. Thanks!

You can stop at any shopping booth or store in Epcot and get them. No need to buy them early, it only takes minutes.

I can't believe with one episode left I just found out who won Hells Kitchen by reading the first post I'm super excited to attend the festival for the first time and sample all the yummy food. I'm worried I'm going to use up all of our snack credits though lol.

Are you talking about post#1 on this thread?? DaSilva-season 5 and Harper-season 3 are from previous Hells Kitchen competitions. I was at a PFTS a few years ago that Harper attended. His food was good, as I recall.

You'll have fun at the festival, enjoy!

Pour Sizes

How big are the pours at the F & W booths?

Are there different sizes? If there are different sizes, is the smallest pour large enough to share, understanding that more than one sip is needed to fully appreciate the selection ?

Same size for all beverages or do they vary from stand to stand?

Thanks for your help!

I don't know how you did that, I wrote the first post and I don't even know.

The people listed in the first post are PAST winners (or runner ups) who will be appearing at the festival.

They will vary according to what you purchase. Wine is about an ounce. Ice wine is usually smaller. Champagne will be a bit larger. Beer can be sold in 6 oz, 12 oz or 22 oz. Beer that comes in bottles will usually be available only as 12 oz.

yep Im an idiot lol. I saw a man and a woman and for some reason thought it was this years season. I just figured it aired earlier in the States so you all knew already oops. Thanks for all the work you put into the thread. The plan for us is to just stick to the booths and things that are included in the epcot admission, for this year anyway. I have major issues I can't seem to stop looking at food pictures.

It airs on Monday...I'll miss it, they don't show it on the cruise ships. It's not a Disney channel.

Magic of Healthy Living Dinner?

Did anyone attend or hear anything about the Magic of Healthy Living dinner last year?

I know...who wants to think about healthy living/eating while on vacation??

I am not especially (at all ) interested in healthy eating and am even less interested in a special event without wine but do really like the chefs (the Voltaggio brothers from Top Chef a few seasons ago and Andrew Zimmern) and would be curious to hear thoughts on last year's event.

Thanks!

We've already got tickets reserved for the Lasseter Family Winery demo on 10/16. Nancy Lasseter is presenting at the Demo. I wonder if John will make an appearance at the demos? He may just come in later in the week for the dinner, but I wouldn't mind seeing John in person at the demo!
