cool! It's like a sippy cup for adults

Has anyone brought something similar to the parks? Would the booths be willing to just fill that up or would you just get your sample in the normal (plastic) glass and then pour it into something like that?

now just need a cord so you could wear it around your neck and free up a hand, like this sort of thing:

Don't think you should count on the booths filling that up. I doubt they will be able to fill personal cups for sanitary reasons. Even then, they are limited as to the size of the wine sample they serve, so they won't fill it anyway, you'd still get the same small taste of wine. You can take your taste from the booth and pour it into the cup. Buy enough tastes of the same wine and you would have a cupful - but it would probably cost more than it should.

Yeah, I figure I have to fill it from the sample cup and then rinse it between uses but I may still try it

I have seen folks wearing the wine glasses around their necks but I figure I will just wind up with red wine all over the "girls" LOL! But that's what they do, they just pour the "tasting sample" into the glass and throw that little cup away.

Would be good if Disney had some type of reusable cup (like the mugs at the resorts) Think about all the waste of those little wine glasses!

By the way I think they also have a beer sippy cup LOL!

that would be an interesting thing to have - they could promote being "green" and, of course, sell them to make even more money off of us

Italian Regional Lunch

I did a quick search but could not find anything so......Does anyone know if the "Regional" theme changes for the Italian Regional Lunches like they do for the French Regional Lunches.

Thank you!
This, of course, will depend on your tastes.
We love the Cheddar Cheese Soup and salmon in Canada; I think they are skipping salmon this year though. Argentina has an excellent beef skewer. The chilled coffee with Godiva chocolate in Belgium is dangerous (). The Kefta Pocket in Morocco is great, and different than your usual fare. Same goes for the Chili Colorado at Terra, hard to tell it was vegetarian. Don' miss the Cheese or Dessert and Champagne booths, they are both worth some time. France has a great selection of wines and drinks, and the best beer selection is Germany. I would stay away from the Greek wines.
Inside the Japan gift store, way back in the distant corner, is a sake tasting bar. That is always a fun place to spend some time.
Hopefully the 'Mommies' will have more than one night out and about!

I keep seeing those pop up on Groupon & Living Social. Anyone tested their durability? I think this would be great for F&W!

A lesson taught by those who like the slushies in france. Bring your refillable mug. They won't let you leave Epcot with alcohol, but they don't bat an eye at the Disney mugs.

This! I got stopped leaving Epcot with a drink I'd only just bought. A quick walk around Spaceship Earth so I could pour it into my water bottle, and we were good to head to Wishes!

In Key West,there is a Food & Wine Festival, where those who buy the full tasting ticket get a lanyard with a small wine glass attached.
So they DO exist.
I've never seen anyone walking around with a full glass,but they do stand with a full glass around their necks while eating when a tasting for food is in the same restaurant as a wine tasting. Don't see too many "wine all over" accidents,for what it's worth.....they seem to work fine for the situation....
