Thanks! I didn't really want to rearrange our entire schedule. It is our first time at Flying Fish. I am really excited.

Deminars - you probably won't see those until no sooner than a week before the booking date, maybe closer to the booking date than that.

Full booth menus - it'll be another week or so and maybe longer to get the prices.
Yay! Just a couple of more days and the planning begins!

So, we can book this Saturday yet no dates/times for anything have been released? Interested in signature dinners, tequila lunch.

Wait, did you mean events announced on Saturday but boookable the 13th?

You can't book until August 13 but this Saturday is the TIW preview event so after Saturday there will be a lot more info available for the events. Correct me if I'm wrong!

Can anyone tell me where to find reviews of the cheapie seminars (the $14 - $15 ones?) If not, can anyone tell me the typical seminars they have and how long they last? We'd like to go to some specialty events, but don't went to spend the $70+ that most of the events cost.
There are a few reviews on disneyfoodblog from past years events:

2012 Robert Irvine
2011 Xante Mixology Seminar
2011 Cake Boss Buddy Valastro
2011 Ming Tsai
2010 Andrew Zimmern

We've done a few in the past, including Robert Irvine and Andrew Zimmern and enjoyed them. We found them to be a good value (especially when they were only $10 or $12) as you got a wine sample and a food sample and the entertainment of the guest chef. Some obviously are better than others but if there is anyone you are interested in seeing I'd give it a shot.

if it works the same way as last year - yes, as long as you have your DVC member number to enter. Note that TIW/AP/DVC discounts were only available on weekday seminars. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays were excluded.

Thanks for these! Very helpful - we will definitely try to book a few when the phone lines open on August 13.
