Another question???
If you buy a bottle of wine at one of the Disney stores (Boardwalk) can you drink it the boardwalk on one of their tables??? We've always just had a glass on our patio, but it would be nice to be able to enjoy it on the boardwalk in the evening... Just asking???

Hi, what card do you use? Sorry if that seems inappropriate, but we love accumulating the points on our Disney card towards our next vacation.

As for the wine on the boardwalk, I don't know. Wondering if you went back to your room, opened and poured it into a non glass container, if anyone would question you.

Not inappropriate at all....We use a Bank Of America 1,2,3 Visa Rewards. (1% everything, 2% groceries, 3% fuel) When I accumlate $25 it posts atomatically to my "vacation checking accont"
Funny, When I looked for my DIsney card this afternoon it had expired.... went on line and re-applied....now I will get a $50 credit when I use it the first time...
I think the non glass container would work??? As long as we are not obvious..
16 more sleeps!!!

Interesting question. I don't know the answer but I know there are rules against taking an alcoholic beverage off the premises at some places. For example, if you buy a beer at the Rose & Crown in Epcot intending to enjoy it on the way back to the BWI/BWV they will stop you at the Epcot turnstiles. If you buy a beer at the Big River Grille on the boardwalk, you cannot take it off the premises. So does that mean you are not allowed to sit on one of the benches along the boardwalk with an alcoholic beverage that you brought from your room? I don't know. If it is allowed, I agree that they wouldn't want any glass containers.

I also can't recall any tables out on the boardwalk other than the ones that are part of The Big River Grille. There are several benches but I don't recall seeing any tables but then again I never needed one so maybe I just never noticed them.

So excited for you - it's coming right up. I've seen the adds for the BoA card, and was very tempted, particularly with the 3% for gas, with the recent price increases. Great news on getting the $50 credit on the Disney card.

The Boardwalk is such a pleasant and lively place to be. Have a great vacation!!

Flying Fish Cafe: November 7 “An Exploration of Sweet Endings” <– New for 2012!
Walt Disney World’s very own Executive Pastry Chef Stefan Riemer; “Cheese as Dessert” along with Flights of Dessert Fantasies at 8pm! Joined by Distinguished Wine Guests: Master Sommelier Andrew McNamara & Wayne Raborn from Wilson & Daniels serving up some delicate Late Harvest Wine Pairings. 8pm Reception–8:30pm Dessert Party
It's a new event so you won't hear too much about it. For the signature dinners and special events information, such as the menu, etc. is hardly ever released ahead of time.

I booked the same thing and haven't heard anything either. Just wondering, has anyone emailed u in regards to the price? The lady I booked with said she would email as soon as she has it but I haven't heard back. I was thinking she forgot about me

No we haven't heard anything either. We were told that we could cancel as little as 48 hrs in advance and that we would be charged after the event.

None of the important details like price, menu, etc. The lady we spoke to said there wasn't a menu yet because they were still deciding which wines to feature, which would then dictate what food was served.

I was told the exact same thing. I guess we still wait then.

Just an FYI: some of those generic "savory" entries on the list of culinary demonstrations have been updated with the actual information. I just booked another one now that I know what is being prepared (vegetarian in this case).

I had problems booking it online however. It is at 3pm and I already had a 2pm beverage seminar reserved. The online reservation system would not let me book it because it was too close to my 2pm seminar. The warning message included a special phone number for the Disney Reservation Center and stated I should call that number if I really needed both reservations.

Then I remembered that I could book this seminar at a discount if I called DVC Member Services so I gave them a try. They couldn't book it either. The MS CM put me on hold for a bit but then came back on the line to say nobody there could figure out how to get around the restriction.

Then I called the Disney Reservation Center and after 5 minutes on hold a very nice CM booked it for me and gave me the DVC discount. In the end it took me nearly 30 minutes to get this reservation. I hope it's worth it!

This is not a food and wine festival event. This is a private event from the Flying Fish restaurant. For info on this event, you would need to contact Boardwalk or the Flying Fish directly, you should have contact info associated with your reservation.

I haven't heard that FF has released prices for its dinners yet, but I've been on the cruise on the Fantasy.
