Also, you could start one morning clockwise, on the Canada, England, France side, and then on the other morning counter clockwise, towards Mexico, Norway, China. There are usually quite a few booths on the World Showcase Promenade between Canada and Mexico, as well, so try not to miss them.
I like that breakfast idea!

First time for us with the reserved seating. Really looking forward to it!
We did reserved seating last year for the first time and the Wine View Lounge the two years before that ( or three, however long it has been available.) We only did the mad dash one year to get a table. I don't know that I'd have done the mad dash a second year if reserved seating hadn't come become available. It was too stressful! With reserved seating, there is no rush to be first in line. Your seat is waiting for you.

Our esteemed moderator and one of our Disney hero's, TDC Nala will also be there in the reserved section too.
Ah, that explains a lot. By the time we went the same weekend in October last year as this year, we were given a table on the outside close to the entrance to the wine view room. From the numbering of the tables, it was obvious that we should have been in the area right in front of the stage. Since I arrived on an ECV, however, we were moved towards the back. I felt like I was in the way all night with my ECV in the "aisle" open space. This year, I will likely be on the ECV but will park it out of the way along the outer wall of the room. It may, in fact, become an extra seat for people to use who don't have a reserved one! LOL I"m okay with that as long as they don't break it. If you're going to be there without a reserved seat and you want to know the name that will be on my ECV, send me a PM. I'll give you permission to sit on it during the night to rest your feet.

They have dozens of Remys. My daughter was best friends with Chip and Dale, Winnie The Pooh, Figment and others. If they plan on Temy being there, WDW won't be paying anyone OT!

Not talking about the costumed Remy but about the animatronic rat-sized Remy that regularly appears at Chefs de France. There is only one of those, and his handlers are Actors Equity members and are under different union rules from costumed characters.

I would think Chefs de France is actually too small a restaurant for the costumed characters to get around in, but I don't know how the breakfast will be set up, it likely won't be the whole restaurant.

That had to be us! It was the same weekend as this year...rather than giving us the table in the front for some reason they decided to set up a new table on the far side of the room - they actually brought in a table. tablecloth etc. from another room...what a mess...we were not happy!

LOL! I'd definitely be booking more if it was just DH and myself. With DD7 and DS8, seminars and the like would get old FAST! They were into the idea of going to some IF they could see a chef they know from food network -- they LOVE many of them including Robert Irvine. Doesn't work out given our dates. Maybe next time...

We have never done F&W before, but just (finally!) confirmed our trip for the last week of October. We have a lot planned already, but I'm really wanting to add a demonstration or something related to the F&W festival! So here's a question for all the F&W veterans out there: if you had to choose one seminar/special event to attend, what would it be? Any thoughts appreciated Thanks!

Party for the Senses is fabulous! Sweet Sundays are really good also! There are so many that are good and it really depends on your taste, budget, etc.

If we could only do one thing during F&W it would be PFTS! We love it - and with Cirque Du Soleil back again this year! They were amazing the year that we went and they were the entertainment.
