It is! They also show classic Disney cartoons, which I thought was really cute!

Unfortunately as the festival went on, offerings in the Chase lounge got slimmer and slimmer. It wasn't really worth the wait after a while. Hopefully they improve this year.

I was only there the last week. What was it like before then?

At the beginning of the festival, the Chase lounge was set up with a charging area for phones. This was taken out, I think because the chargers were getting broken.

They always had soft drinks, coffee and tea available. Sometimes their soda machine was broken. No food that I recall except at the beginning they had some Werther's hard candies.

Thats's a shame. What's the setup like? Is it indoors or outside under a tent?

Indoors -- in the old Wonders of Life pavilion, which becomes the Festival Center during Food & Wine Festival and Flower & Garden Festival. Very comfortable.

Planning a honeymoon/vacation

My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon/vacation for after our wedding this summer. We would like to know if and when Buddy Valastro will be attending the Food & Wine Festival this year. If anyone has any information on this, please let me know. This will help us to determine when and where we go for our honeymoon.

Sometimes the celebrities "leak" their appearance dates before they get announced, on their websites or elsewhere. If that doesn't happen, you probably won't see a list of events from Disney until the middle or end of July. The special event schedule (not the deminars) is generally released at a Tables in Wonderland event around that time.

Can the Disney dining plan be used to purchase food at the F&WF using snack credits?

Any counter service options are are unique to this time?

You can use snack credits for almost all food items, but not the alcoholic beverages. Not sure about counter service changes during the festival
