No, you can't. The 3D Dessert Party cannot be booked by anyone until August 13. There is no early booking or AP discounts for this event.

Question Italy Regional Food & Wine Luncheon at Tutto Gusto

Could I please get some input/reviews of the Italian Regional Food & Wine Luncheon at Tutto Gusto on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays from Noon-2:00pm. This event costs $75 per person.

How does this event compare with the Italian Food and Wine Pairing at Vi Napoli on Thursdays from 1:30 - 4:00pm or the Italian Food and Beer Pairing at Via Napoli on Tuesdays from 1:30 - 4:00pm?

Any rumors as to when the food demo, wine, and mixology event schedule will be released? DVC sent out an emailing with online booking details for August 9th but I can't find a schedule anywhere.

There is no schedule for the Festival Center seminars yet.

All we can say is that it will be out before Friday. Nobody knows exactly when, and Disney isn't talking. They won't even tell people who call, according to another thread I saw - the most they will say is "soon."

We assume it will be out before Friday..,,,,no guarantees.
With Disney you always wonder why it seems like they are doing this for the first time.

I'm hoping we hear something tomorrow. That will give me at least a few hours to decide what I want to do!

So did I! We started out the same way and now it's all about the special events. Yes, we still do the World Showcase Kiosks...love 'em but we also love all the specialty luncheons and dinners. We have become 'fallbirders' instead of snowbirders.

[*]You start by happening upon a delightful food and/or wine kiosk when you didn't even know there was an EPCOT F&W festival. Spouse, who is not much of a WDW fan, is intrigued.[*]You find out that it is an annual event so plan a trip for next year, and spend your time grazing from kiosk to kiosk around World Showcase. You get talking to people and you find out there are "special" dining events. Hubbie really liked the experience. Hmmmm.[*]Now you know there are special events, so the next year you try to sign up for one. All you can get is the Wine Pairing in Morocco, because everything else is sold out. But you go, and you have a really great time![*]You plan a trip during F&W. When events are announced, you pick an event (or two) that will be happening during your visit and you are on the phone at 7am the first day they are taking reservations. You swear that if you ever decide to leave your current job as a results producing software executive who can build and scale high volume transaction events--you will offer your services to Disney and fix their online "challenges."[*]The trip is fantastic, and the events compelling! You enjoyed the special events so much, that you are going to plan your next trip around the events, rather than planning your events around your trip.[*]You FINALLY get the signature event schedule, book your events and then go to book your trip and NOTHING on Crescent Lake is available when you want to go, so you stay off property and valet park at the Boardwalk every day.[*]You book a room for every week of F&W at some hotel on Crescent Lake so that you can comfortably stagger back to your room after and evening of over-indulgence--no matter when Disney decides to schedule it. You pick your events and cancel most of your reservations. How crazy could it be to fly to Florida twice during one Food and Wine Festival? At this point, Hubbie needs an annual pass, too.[*]You've experienced an amazing event and you want to make it an annual event. You're determined to watch for the scheduling of that event and then book your trip. This is your plan, and you're sticking to it. You grow weary of waiting and wondering how it will all work out. You have a plan B if you can't get a good rate or rent points for DVC at the Boardwalk or Beach Club on "short notice."[*]Hubbie is now teasing you in public about this Disney F&W obsession thing. So, you suggest that we vacation in Italy this year instead of going to Food and Wine Festival. He asks, "Can we do both?" [Smiling inside.][*]As a compromise you take a couple of trips to Cape Cod (also a foodie destination) instead of attending Star Wars Weekend or Flower and Garden Festival and are now waiting to book your F&W vacation. You're completely set on attending an event that will only happen once during the entire festival. You post questions about this event on every official Disney blog or social media outlet. Finally, the event is announced. Within an hour you have your plane tickets and a reservation at the Swan. PHEW![*]I have no idea what is going to happen next, but I'll come back and update this post in November. I do know that Hubbie caught wind of the F&W-like booths at Flower and Garden. I think we will be adding that back in to the WDW vacation mix. After all, we've got those annual passes and that TiW card . . .
Hysterical!! This is exactly how I got DH to fall in love with Disney!! Our first visit together he proposed to me in Disney because he knew how much it meant to me. He never thought we'd be back...
Well our 6th trip together happens this fall!!

Found this info on the Chase Visa Site:

Discover a delicious retreat just for Chase Cardmembers.

Tasting your way around the world just got sweeter. Enjoy the Cardmember exclusive Chase Lounge during the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival from September 27 - November 11, 2013.1, 2 Have a seat, put your feet up and relax on a comfy couch. Plus, recharge your cell phone (and yourself), enjoy complimentary soft drinks, purchase a beer or glass of wine, and catch up on some of your favorite magazines and sports on TV. After you are refreshed and ready for more, check the interactive festival map, grab your passport and head out to sample more.

Cardmembers can visit the Chase Lounge from 11am-9pm on Sunday through Thursday and 11am-10pm on Friday and Saturday during the festival.

The Lounge is located in the American Adventure Pavilion on the third floor (please use the elevator located between the attraction and the gift shop).
Present your Disney's Visa® Card to gain access to the Lounge (separate Epcot® admission is required).

Should mention that you do not need to have a Disney Visa for the Chase lounge. Any Chase credit or debit card was accepted. Purchasing booze in the lounge is new.

The big change here is that the lounge will be located in the American Adventure pavilion and NOT in the Festival Center.

Thanks! I think I may go look at some sales today for a cute summer dress.
