For the past 5 years? F&W logo gift cards, that can be worn as bracelets can be obtained in Epcot ... during the festival. They are available just about at every food kiosk, merchandise display and definitely at the Festival Welcome Center. They work just like any other Disney card. They are handy because you can wear them on your wrist and don't need to dig in your pocket for the card or cash.

Oh I saw those bracelets during the garden festival! They looked great. What a wonderful idea :-) can't wait for the magicband to come online so we can charge that.

Does anyone have a guess-timate of when they will list the chefs/ topics for Kitchen Memories? I want to give this experience to my husband for his birthday and will have two opportunities during our stay. I just wondered how soon I might expect to know my options.

Quite a bit of information about special events is released at the Preview Dinner on July 27 or by the Monday afterwards. Of course it could be different this year and information could be released at anytime.

I wish you could pre-order the F&W specific gift card online. It would make a fantastic B-Day present for my DBF. (His birthday is in Aug, as is mine)

You can use regular WDW gift cards at the food booths. The F&WF are different in that they can be worn as a bracelet and have the F&WF logo on them, otherwise they are the same as any Disney gift card. Any cash value left on the card can be used at any Disney location that accepts Disney gift cards.

though I have heard some stories of the machines (card readers) going down at times - not often, but it happens. So having some back-up cash is usually a good idea ...

... but I agree the wrist-strap cards are great and also make a "free" souvenir

Thanks, WeeVee. That helps me be less of a stalker on the website. I'll just (im)patiently wait until the end of July. Thanks again.

I thought I read somewhere, maybe here, that you can purchase the wristlet GC with a regular Disney GC? Is this correct? We have a bunch of GCs saved up, but I would really love one of the wristlet ones!

What events are not to be missed? I was thinking 3d Dessert party or Food and Wine Paring or Tequila Tasting or Party of the Sense.

I think it all depends your tastes, events that one person finds to be incredibly satisfying, others have hated, so it's each to his own.
