I may have to rethink whether or not I want to do this
I LOVE anything with goat cheese. Actually, I'm thinking about getting a goat!

SWEET!!!!!!!! Nice to have a place for a break at the opposite end of the park. During the week, at least, the Festival Center is a great place to get a glass of champagne, hang out, and freshen up in a really nice restroom! ;-)

I keep checking this site and the official F/W Festival site to see if the descriptions of the demos are available. We haven't gone to F/W Festival for several years, but I certainly don't remember that the schedule was released so late!

This makes it so hard to plan! Why do you think they are taking so long?

Actually they do release it this late as a matter of course in the past few years.

It was THIS late last year? It is less than 48 before you can book these events yet no one has any idea what "these events" are? It is not only frustrating but a reflection of how poorly organized and weak from an IT perspective Disney is at some things. There is absolutely no reason why this couldn't be planned out a few weeks before booking, released to the public and supported by an on-line booking system that "reads" whether you are DVC/PAP/ early booking eligible. Making people call on the phone and sit on endless holds at 7am (or 8am) is simply antiquated and silly.

I've made reservations the past 3 years and I do not think we have had such a short time to plan what demos to buy tickets. There are certain chefs and companies that I want to see! Come on Disney and post the schedule!

Last year, the Disney Food Blog first posted them on August 9. The early booking date was August 10, regular booking date August 14. So if you go by last year, they're right on track to release tomorrow.

Think they will still have the wristbands for priority seating for concerts?!

I must have gotten mine from a different source. I had a printed schedule and made a call from my car for the advanced reservations

DFB posts things pretty quickly. I remember a lot of complaints from those having less than 24 hours to plan last year. I think the year before it was 2 days. And you know there are tons of persons in the Disney blogosphere who are checking constantly. We will know as soon as they are accessible.

2 Questions...

1. As a DVC member when I call on Friday can I pay with a disney gift card? And all are of the experiences bookable like the 4 course French Lunch or just the wine/cooking/mixology seminars?

2. We will have my parents staying with us at OKW.. there are things we'd like to do together and some they'd like to do apart. What can I book for them on Friday?? Would they need DVC ID to enter a class?

The blurb I read online didn't say anything about the wrist bands. Actually I didn't know they did that last year either.

Hopefully the area they are using this year will be larger than last year. It got very crowded there last year.

Yes.

Only the $12-15 seminars. Nothing else is bookable on Friday.

If they do it the way they've been doing it, the only time you give your DVC number is when you book. However, when you pick up the tickets, they ask for ID and I believe they want a picture ID because I've always used a drivers license. So you would have to book anything you book for them in THEIR name. Since they are not DVC members I don't know if you'd be able to do that early. You may be able to book for them as a DVC member only if you intend to accompany them.

You could probably book two tickets in your name and then give the tickets to your parents. But you would likely have to pick the tickets up at the festival center yourself.
