I am aware,thank-you..I have looked at them, I was simply stating my opinion...to me there is no reason why they can't put out the prices...

Every year, we have to wait for the prices. Just like every year we have to wait for the deminars.

True. It's just that in today's high tech world, everyone is used to knowing it all with the click of a mouse. As my teenage sister once said, "Instant gratification takes too long!"

And is there some reason Disney should release the prices besides "I want to know NOW" It's not what they do. Go check their website. Do you see the prices for the Quick Service meals? Heck do you see the prices for the Table Service meals? I am not sure why this is such a big deal. You know the general range.... which is all they give you for anything.

I can't believe me saying my opinion on 1 thing has ruffled so many feathers. I've been on here a very long time and have seen many people say their opinion on things...here lately for some odd reason I feel many are getting testy about it?? All I did was respond to what someone else said...with my opinion, it was not my intention to apparently upset people or make it where they felt they had to defend Disney.
I'm quite aware on how Disney operates, as I said I've been on here awhile and have went to Disney many times. All I was saying is there is no reason why they can't?? Never said they had to, as it is Disney's way.
As far as the statement about wanting to know Now?? It's not a Big deal...just would be nice. For those of us who have to save and save to go, yes it is nice to know more about the prices so we know what we're looking at for our trip. I'm sorry if this offends you.

Again not my intention to upset anyone..this is why sometimes I don't like writing things, you can't hear someone's voice or what they really mean, everyone reads it and takes it the way they want.. *sigh...

I certainly wasn't upset or defensive at all. I, too, really like to plan ahead, and needed to save up for my Disney trip. That's why I just used last year's stuff as a guideline, and thought I'd pass that along for others as a possibility as well.

For the record, I like to hear people's opinions whether I agree with them or not. Why else participate in a discussion board?

I also think that it would be helpful if prices were listed in advance, but maybe Disney feels it would scare some people away? If you are making a list of 10 items that you want to try in one day...it can get pretty expensive. Better to not think of how much trying the items is going to cost you!

OK this is an informational thread, let's not get into an argument about who will be posting what. I'm removing threads if I think they are not on topic for the festival. I've learned that people subscribe and read this thread because they're waiting for info to come out (like the prices we're waiting for now) and the argument about opinions as to whether or not Disney should be getting the prices out sooner (we all wish they would, but they don't, it's just not how this is done) is just taking up space.

You are of course free to write to Disney and let them know that they take too long to get the prices out. That may help them realize that most guests want longer to plan, if they get enough complaints.

Here is a review from 2010. Based on the past couple of years I do not think the event has changed much.

It looks like there's great excitement over this year's F&WF and that's great! DW and I are going this weekend, mainly for the F&WF, but also to get away from the kids!

I was wondering if there were any formal opening ceremonies on Friday? This trip will not be our first time at F&WF, but it is our first time at opening weekend.

Thanks!

To my knowledge there are no opening ceremonies. They open the booths and off you go.

Um, oh. I guess I wasn't really expecting that answer. So the festivities start when World Showcase opens, then, I guess? So that's a good time to go as the local Orlando WDW fans won't have gotten off work at that time of day?

Exactly...once they get off work on Friday they will start showing up in droves.

There is the Festival Center which opens at 9, as compared to the World Showcase which opens at 11 (the food kiosks in WS will not open prior to WS opening), but I don't think they do opening ceremonies there either. I don't know, maybe they do something at the cranberry bog.
