Yes! November 3 -9 for Jersey Week! Have been going every other year at this time since 2001; absolutely LOVE F & W. Last time for us and DD will be 17 and a senior in HS (very odd last trip without DS in college.) Always stay at BC or BW but considering BLT for a change!

I had so much fun during my 40th bday celebration at F&WF last year that I am heading down for a solo trip this year (Oct 16- 19) I was lucky enough to snag a AKV value studio for the trip.

My favorites from last year were the lamb chop at Australia and the Sunny Guava with Coconut Rum at China. My second favorite food was the scallop in New Zealand. The only thing I really didn't care for were the escargot in France. I never had them before and I really don't plan on having them again.

I will be there with my cousin Sept. 24 - Oct. 1 so, I'm hoping to hit the Festival for the first time!

Nala, if/when they come out with the comprehensive info thread, would you please post a link on this thread?

I have a very hard time finding anything though the Disboards search. Like I searched for 2013 hoping to find the MNSSHP and Food and Wine Festival for this year and got nothing. Then I put in Food and Wine and this Food and Wine 2013 thread come up. Why didn't it come up when I asked for 2013?

We are staying at the Boardwalk Oct 26-Nov 2. Our last Halloween trip was in 2007 so we are really excited! I am now going back to read through the thread.

Will be staying at POR from Oct 3-9 and will be celebtating my sister's 70th b'day. My niece and a cousin will be with us.....I have not been to F & W in many years and the others in our group have never been....Reading past posts probably we will be avoiding going to F & W on following wekend if we can help it....Just looking forward to enjoying ourselves as much as possible while we are there

Last year we went for my youngest 40th, (staying at BW), Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was great.

This year we are going back for birthday b'day. In fact we are marking this a girl's trip (6 of us) staying at the Boardwalk.

Already planning outfits,

October 8th thru 13th

As of now our plan is to stay at the Poly from 11/3 to 11/10 or 11/5 to 11/12. it will be our first time at F&W and plan on attending before the last days/weekend as I know it will be very busy. Hopeing it will not be too crazy earlier in the week.

Thanks!!! I was glad to see they are using the old Health/Body pavilion as the greeting station. I have not been in there since the Health/Body exhibits closed! And thanks for all the countries and menus! Now I can dream about what I want to get for 7 months one week and 6 days!!

I just found out that the F&W festival will be going on while I am at Disney for the Tower of Terror 10 miler! I am so excited--last year I was at Disney at the end of September, just a few days before Food and Wine, so I was disappointed to miss it.
I hadn't planned on going to Epcot while I am there for the TOT 10 miler, but now that I know the Food and Wine Festival will be on, I have changed my mind!

Anyone have any tips/advice for combining both of these events in one long weekend trip? I *think* I will arrive early (around noon) on Friday (Hoping they schedule a MNSSHP that night!), the race is at 10 pm Saturday night...I will probably want to sleep in on Sunday...I'm hoping to leave to go back home on Monday evening (latest flight I can take out). So I'm thinking Monday will be my best bet to attend the festival?

With the TOT 10 miler at HS, plus now knowing about this at Epcot, I would REALLY like to stay at one of the Epcot resorts---but I'm leaning towards POFQ. It will be like 1/2 the price and it's one of the host resorts for the race.

So excited!!!

Though we spent a lot of time at the F&W in 2011, I never bothered going into the greeting station. What do they do in there??

I don't know, I've never been to the F&W Festival I just saw it on the map. But, I'm guessing they will be selling stuff there for one thing
