Totally understand that no one has a crystal ball but is it likely that the 3D dessert party and PFTS, both with reserved seating, will sell out on Tuesday, based on previous years? I don't have a great track record of getting my rear out of bed for these 5 am Mountain phone calls.

Last year I believe the reserved setting sold out the first day. This year with Disney Visa getting to purchase a day earlier they may sell out even quicker! The Wine View I think also sold out quickly but not quite as quick as the Reserved. Sweet Seats for dessert also sold out quickly.

I no longer buy in advance, my schedule is just to changeable!)

Of course at least I am going back to the wine seminars some.. I took two years off after some amazingly rude treatment of myself and others by the CMs working the event. (No, I don't think it's acceptable for a person who has to sit in the back due to mobility issues to have to see a CM's rear end instead of the presenter LOL!)
I contributed my comment so that people are aware it is NOT hopeless if you can't or didn't know you needed to make a reservation and purchase in advance. I was disappointed and thought I was going to miss the only event I wanted!

Two years ago the reserved seating for PFTS was sold out by noon on day 1 for both of the weekends I could attend.

Disney has posted more information for PFTS. There is a PDF containing the featured chefs and the featured wineries, breweries and distilleries for each of the PFTS here: http://wdpromedia.disney.go.com/medi...enses-2013.pdf

[QUOTE=PNO4TE;49241846]AKL IPO wouldn't even try to book deminars for me yesterday. They had no idea that there were certain "perk-ed" guests who were allowed to book early. So, I did it myself!
[QUOTE]

The CM I emailed with at AKL IPO knew about the advance booking for deminars, but said they can't help with booking anything that needs an AP or TIW number, so we had to book them ourselves on Friday. They had told me something similar when I tried to get the AP discount on MNSSHP tickets - to get the discount, I had to book them myself, though once I had a reservation number they added it to my itinerary.

As for booking everything on Monday with a Disney Visa, they told me they could do that since the Visa we have on file with them is a Chase Disney one. So, they're supposed to book our Sweet Sundays brunch for us early Monday morning. They'll call us if they have problems. We'll see what happens!

I'm assuming Monday morning is also for PAP holders? One CM told me Monday, another told me Tuesday. I just wish they all had the same, correct info!

Monday is only for Chase Disney Visa users, AFAIK.

I don't have a PAP, so if anyone has heard differently, please correct me. I did get an email from Chase, though, that said Monday booking was a perk for Disney Visa users.

Looks like on Party for the Senses there is a Twinnings Tea stand so maybe there will be tea as a soft drink option?

This is correct; only Disney Visa can book Monday morning at 7am ET. I called Friday morning like many others hoping to book PFTS and Sweet Sundays as well as a couple other things and was disappointed to find out I couldn't book anything.
I have the PAP, TIW, DVC, and the Chase card (maybe DW and I should re-think the meaning of life, but that's another story!) I asked the CMs I spoke with at WDW FEST and DVC and both told me the early booking on Monday would be for ALL events and ONLY open to Chase Disney cardholders booking WITH the Chase card. I was also told that I must have a Disney reservation number. Also, DVC can make this ressie but they open at 9am on Monday and the WDW FEST line opens at 7, so the better option is the latter.

See you there!!

What Disney reservation number would you need? We aren't staying onsite so we don't have any disney reservation numbers (other than conf# for ADRs) - does that mean I wouldn't be able to book with my Chase Disney Visa? No mention of needing one in the e-mail I got (not saying you weren't told that or it is incorrect, just think that is something that should be communicated if it is a fact)

I hope it works out for you, max. It's crazy how they have run the f&w bookings this year. If they do deny folks without a disney reservation # the opportunity to book with their Chase Disney card, I imagine there will be more than a few "temporary" room only bookings made tomorrow.

Just because a CM says it, it does not make it a fact. I expect you won't have any problem. They always ask, but last year I was at Swan and had no issues.

Now the post above was the first where a CM confirmed what could be booked Monday, so the question ia "was the CM correct or just making things up.". (and stating the "office rumor" as fact is "making things up" IMHO). And they often communicate "facts" that turn out to be wrong so.....


I guess we wait until Monday to find out.
