I've been on hold for about 20 minutes. There's only one deminar that I'll be disappointed not to get...

I have a work call in 25 minutes, so hopefully will be able to connect before then

If you have another line try it. Disney has a phone queue issue and if you get shunted to the wrong place you could be on hold all day

Wow! That kind of shocks me... I am going to call one of the other concierge's to see if that is policy? I was under the impression they were "all- powerful" for these type of requests. If that is the case, thanks for setting me straight!

Nice! This is only our second. The last one was in 2004 (wow, 9 years ago). Really looking forward to it. We will be there from 10/23 - 10/29.

Just an FYI, not sure if it will work for everyone, but I was able to book a beverage seminar online about 20 minutes ago. I put my card in, paid for it, and I got a confirmation email. Payment has even come through on my card. Just wanted to let everyone know!

Surprising that you can book online, TIW said that wasn't supposed to open up until Tuesday. However if you want the Monday-Thursday discount, you still have to call.

Are they asking for any confirmation that the person booking is TIW/AP/DVC/Golden Oak?

Nope, didn't even ask which I thought was weird. I was booking for a Sunday so wouldn't have gotten a discount anyway.

This tasting event was $47 in 2010 this put me off. Wish wages went up at the same rate!

I just read on the food blog that Buddy Valastro will be there again this year.

My DS would love to see him, but it says it was $99 for the seminar. Is that the only way to see him? I was hoping he would be at a booth. I think a couple of years ago they had a cannoli booth.

Does anybody know?? Thanks for any info.

Could you post the link you used? I can't find anywhere on the epcotfoodfestival page to "book" anything.

Got all mine by 8:20...we're booked for:

Dan Smith & Steve McDonagh - The Hearty Boys 10/19 @ 1:00 (beef)
Rochelle Daniel from L'Auberge de Sedona 10/21 @ 1:00 (scallops)
Pisco Porton Mixology 10/21@ 6:00

We also bought tickets for the Food & Wine Classic.

I am hoping for Pixie Dust that California Grill will miraculously open, then it will be a perfect getaway!

So excited for our 2nd Food & Wine Festival!!!!!!
