The Disney IT is wonderful. The website says my annual pass expires in 2030! It expired at end of 2012.

I'm happy I'm getting to pour wine at these events again this year! It's such a fun venue!

Does anybody know?? Thanks for any info.

If you just want to see him assuming the cooking stage is set up the same way it's been the last 2 years you can just sit or stand near the ledge directly across from the stage. I did this event 2 years ago & many people just stood outside to watch. After the Sweet Sundays event Buddy also did a book signing. Again assuming they still do it the same way. Arrive at the festival center right after park opens. They were handing out wrist bands for the book signing. If you had a wrist band you were guaranteed a signing. They lined up people with wrist bands first then general public. From what I understand Buddy did stay until everyone got through the line. He was so nice. I got a great picture with him. His desserts were delicious too! There was no cannoli booth that I saw anywhere. AFAIK the only way to taste his food is at a ticketed event.

I saw posted that someone was not able to use Disney Gift Cards to purchase. Can anyone say they WERE able to use Gift Cards? I need to call but want to be able to use gift cards!

You can usually use gift cards to purchase ANYTHING that is operated by Disney.

Buddy did the Kitchen Memories event last year and then he did a book signing after that as well. As the PP said, he was super nice and stayed until everyone in line had their books signed.

Donít be discouraged if you donít get a wristband. They only gave out 15 or so last year for the Friday book signing (they cut off the line for the wristbands right before us). I figured they would have given out more but he was able to get through the wristband and standby line in the hour he was signing.

You should be able to. When it comes time to pay, I would probably just tell the CM, I will be paying for this purchase with my gift card, let me know when you're ready for the #.

It avoids the whole, will you allow me to or not discussion.

Is there a list somewhere of events that are supposedly sold out?

Nope. No list yet. Disney Food Blog will often note sold out events, but they haven't noted any yet.

Just on this thread, the Buddy Valastro demo is reported sold out as is the 10/29 Cat Cora.

For the early bookings on Monday does it have to be a Disney VISA or just a Chase VISA?

Ad says "Cardmembers." But it is an ad from Disney Visa specifically. As to what the answer is about other Chase VISA cards? Don't know, can't tell from the ad.

It says Disney Visa and I don't see this offer on my SW Chase Visa listing.

I think we're just going to go on the assumption that it's now all events on Monday so I'm going to get to work before 7AM (ugh) to use the office phone while Mrs Cdtommie will take the home phone assignment...probably asking for clarification from Disney over the weekend would be fruitless.
