Chase Visa Members early Booking

Nothing mentioned about PftS.
thanks for the link.

Notice it says:

******

For one day only on Monday, August 12 from 7am-11pm EST, Cardmembers will have the opportunity to book special events at the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival before sales open to the general public on August 13.1 Indulge your taste buds with a range of events, including:
  • Culinary Demonstrations
  • Mixology Seminars
  • Wine Schools
  • Cheese Seminars
  • "3D" Disney Dessert Discovery

Click here to explore event details, dates and pricing.

*******


If you click the link it takes you to the official wdw website page for the food and wine festival which covers all events.

so that would lead me to think you could book everything on Monday via the Disney Visa card

Just read it again...it's moved to the American adventure pavilion. That explains the opening time!
Interesting, thanks for pointing that out! I hope it's a bigger room than it was last year. I stopped in the afternoon last year one day and it was so crowded, there wasn't a chance of relaxing in a quiet spot. But the free drinks were nice.

I was read a long statement today when I booked a Saturday non-discounted mixology, part of it referenced necessity to bring DVC card and photo ID.

I thought I may have heard the CM incorrectly and asked her to back up and repeat the section...the warning was there. No big deal since I always have both on me anyway when in the parks.

The email I received at home is from "Disney Rewards". I thought I didn't get one either because I was looking for an email from "Chase".

Conflicting Times for Seminars

It looks identical to the one I clicked on in this thread, except there are some time differences in the two of them. One of the time differences is Kevin Dundon, October 1, 2013 is at 1:00! Both say October 2013. One came out yesterday to DVC members, I don't know when the one on Disney.com came out.

This is Kind of confusing, because once you make the reservation by date only, you get a confirmation by date no name of seminar; so some people may be looking at the Disney site schedule and booking that date, and some may be looking at the DVC/AP schedule and booking by that time/date.

There's no event called Sweet Sensations. Does it refer to Sweet Sunday or to the 3D Dessert Party? People have been booking the 3D Dessert Party today even though it was not supposed to open up until Tuesday.

How much of a mess would it be if they fill all of those up with Chase Visa holders and there is nothing left Tuesday.

I tend not to believe that the WDW DINE cast members really know anything about anything, so the fact that a WDW DINE cast member said it was all events doesn't really phase me.
Your bigger problem is that based on today my belief that Disney's IT shop knows nothing was reinforced. So if they "open" an event the CMs will book it.....regardless of what was "suppose" to happen!

I had no luck this morning -- on hold too long at work and gave up.

But just called 10 minutes ago and had zero phone wait. Booked the 2 beverage seminars I wanted.

CM had to be convinced there were noon, 2p, 4p events -- she was on Culinary list (depsite that I was aksin baout beverage seminars) and just kept saying "there's only 1, 3 and 5" But she went and checked, and came back on informed.

I wonder how many other people were able to book these events before they were supposed to open up on Tuesday?

Between the combination of failing IT, confusing offers and clueless phone agents, it'll be a wonder if anybody gets anything booked that they wanted.
