Last year I felt like I was watching the running of the bulls at Pampola. Stampede seemed to fit what I saw. A hundred folks in a full out Tim qualifed IMHO

That should read 'full out run'. Auto correct helped me (yeah right) and I can't figure out how to edit on my phone.

It is nothing like a stampede. It is a large crowd, yes but stampede? Not at all. but I guess that exaggeration may help some justify the high price tag for WVL! Lol

Do any of the kiosks have the passports or are they only at the Festival Center?

In exactly 2 weeks at this time we'll be strolling around having "dinner" at F&W - I am SO excited!

We picked up our passport at the Desserts & Champagne booth.

Well, I was there last night. It was absolutely a stampede. The stampede went right by my table. I certainly can't judge how it was the nights you have attended in the past... and you certainly can't judge last night, if you weren't there.

I posted my review of the Taste, Shake, Indulge in my trip report along with some of my booth offerings.

Was anyone hurt? Trampled? Stepped on? If not, it was no stampede. It's a crowd, an excited crowd entering a party. It's a little tight and chaotic for about 2-3 minutes and then it is fine. Don't try to make it more than it is.

Nope, nowhere in the definition of stampede does it say anything about being hurt, trampled, or stepped on. The most applicable definition of stampede is:

"A sudden headlong rush or flight of a crowd of people."

That is a PERFECT definition of what happened last night. You're right, it only lasted a few minutes. I never stated otherwise. In no way am I making more of it than it is. You just have a very extreme personal definition of what stampede means.

Cool



(*Dons flame-retardant suit*)

I feel like Ms. Nala should intervene soon. This is a place for Food & Wine info, Q & A, as well as reviews, and pics. The continued fight over the definition &/or correct use of a word chosen by someone to describe their personal perspective is rather petty & distracting.

I love the additional info & various points of view from people that have been there. If you have a different memory, then add your review! Don't start critiquing other's posts just because you don't agree.

All that having been said...anyone have a pic of that 22oz souvenir stein? I really want to know in advance what it looks like. Someone on here mentioned earlier that it wasn't dishwasher safe.

I wasn't questioning the use of the word. My point was that describing the general admission to PFTS as equal to a stampede or the running of the bulls was a tremendous exaggeration that might scare off new party-goers. It is a great experience even in general admission and in 8+ parties, we have never felt a stampede or any kind of negative issue with the entrance to the party. It is a large group of people excited to enter but it is wll-orchestrated and perfectly fine. and if crowds scare you, enter the party five minutes late and there will be no crowd at all.

Remember reading one, can't find it now (big help! ).

Our Disney friends (conversation with strangers at F&W one year, ran into same strangers following year, exchanged email and phone #s = Disney friends!) just tried it and loved it. Brief email description, but lots of mimosas and great food. Not a lot of help, sorry. But they did recommend it! The Italian wine tasting lunch is another one of their favorites, if that helps!

Josh has a picture of the stein (at least I think it's the one you're talking about) in his latest post at easywdw.
