Also, watch the time. The breakfast runs until 10:30 so you will need to leave early to get to your next event.
I figure I would have to leave about 15 to 20 min. early to make the wine and cheese.

Can we just go to the festival center the morning we get there and see what is available ? Or is that just wasting our time?

Of course you can. I booked a mixology just last Sunday this way.

Nope they have an orange dole whip with some time of coconut liquor at the Refreshment Port
I saw that and thought they probably wouldn't sell another Dole Whip drink someplace else. Too bad.

I tried the Orange Dole whip with the creme de coco liquor. I thought it was great!
Is it a strong coconut flavor? I like coconut with pineapple, not so sure about orange...

Somewhat disappointed with PFTS tonight. This is our 6th consecutive year. This year was it as enjoyable. First, it seemed that Cirque du Soleil was band/ singer heavy and performance light. I remember three performance sets with band in between. I think there was one tonight and mostly a nd. They were good. It missed the acrobatic performances. Second, they ruined the cocktail party with all the paid, reserved seating. There were far fewer high tops for leaning and socializing. Probably only about 20 total. Space taken up with stupid tables/ chairs. Reunited the flow and the socializing. Thirs, there was no food I loved and wanted more of. It was good but nothing spectacular. Finally, wines were almost exclusively from CA. Not my preference and there was little variety.

I'll chalk it up to a night that didn't meet our individual preferences input will do a full review after next Saturday's party. I am feeling like it wasn't quite up to stuff this year but willing to try next weeks before I give a full assessment.

This maybe a silly question but is the orange Dole Whip just orange or orange and pineapple?

Was at EPCOT yesterday and did the tequila lynch which was amazing and my wife did the shake, taste, and indulge which she really enjoyed.

We didn't do a single booth though as it was PACKED - every booth line was 40-50 people deep at least. Rides busy too - even Ellen's Energy Adventure had a 20 min wait.


Will be going back Mon and Third afternoons and hope to cover some ground theb

We were there last night as well. One word- INSANE!!!! I'd compare it to July 4th maybe worse.
We weren't there for the booths thank god!! We had an ADR, but are also planning on going tomorrow. Can't wait to try everything!!

We were also at PFTS last night. It was our first one, but I agree 100% with the review a few posts back. The food was good, but nothing blew me away and I thought the desserts were awful. There was a table with David Ramirez chocolates and those were excellent and had to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Hi -

I'm getting very excited for this. Just went through all the menus and have over 50 items I want to try (both food and beverages). I hope I can manage it! I'll only have 10 days.

I have a question I haven't seen asked or answered. I see the 22 oz. beers come with the "souvenir stein". But what if I don't want it? If I get a couple, that will be all I want. Do they have an alternative, like a big solo cup?

Thanks!
