I think folks aren't reading the cover well.
That wording effectively says that the Food & Wine Festival is closed on Friday 9/28, Friday 10/5, Friday 10/12, Friday 10/19, Saturday 11/10.

Those days are not Sunday through Thursday. And they're not listed as select Fridays and Saturdays.

I think it's safe to assume the Festival will be operating those days. Most likely, on those days, the closing time will be 9:00 p.m. But that's not what it says.

I don't see that wording at all.

I think some of you are working hard at making this complicated

Whatever the wording is, it doesn't matter. They are not going to close down the festival on those days. There are festival events scheduled for all of them. I also don't see that it says anything about closure.

Yikes $9.75 for the Cosmo Slush now! That's one of my favorite things at the festival. Not sure it's worth $9.75 though. Looks like I'll have to limit myself to one this time around.

Almost every price for booth items has gone up. Some of the alcoholic beverages went up a full dollar.

I'm glad the pumpkin mousse is back this year. We really enjoyed that last year. We also enjoyed the griddled cheese in the Greece booth so it's good to see that back again this year. And I see a vegetarian option in the Poland booth!

I don't know why folks seem surprised at price increases. It is Disney. Have you noticed the increases in park tickets and hotel rates? (the latter have reached the "they are crazy" stage)

Plus at my grocery a lot of what I buy costs more then a year ago.

I was thinking the same thing, my local grocery stores have really raised prices over the last few years. It was bound to happen.

not surprised, just sad. i figure most people were hoping the prices would stay the same, not that they thought the prices would stay the same.

Prices usually don't stay the same, but some of these items are showing a huge increase, much larger than usual. Many have gone up only a quarter or so.
