Are they going to "assume " it is for the other person sharing the room ? What if there are 4 of you and only 2 are going ?
I never even thought of that when I was booking, but the next day I logged into the app on my phone and it had my name and asked for the name of the other person out of the people listed on my friends list. I was able to fix it from there.

Well, now I'm confused. I booked the premium package today. There are three adults in my party and I had to book three individual packages - as in $199 x 3 - so that we will all receive the MBs, credentials, gift cards, etc. So...was that an unnecessary, expensive slip-up on my and the CM's parts?? The poor CM didn't even understand what I was booking at first so perhaps that should have been a clue for me...

Any thoughts? When you say you confirmed "via Dine management..." do you mean that you called the dining line and spoke with a CM?

UGH!!!

It seems like from your description you did the correct thing - yes it is $199 per person.

And our friend Gawrsh IS a dining CM. So I think we have a good and final answer there!

Thanks. I had read the Disney food blog description. I was wondering if anyone here had done the experience last year and could tell me how it was. I googled and read some reviews so I'm all set now.

Thanks

Did we ever get an answer or determine what would happen with split stays? I still want to sign up for the premium package but with a split stay, I don't know what to do! I emailed IPO and they were really confused and thought I was referencing the Premium Dining Package!

I called back after reserving the Preimum to give them my friend's name. CM told me that wasn't necessary. So now I tried to add her on MDE but DVC has put her in the lead instead of me so I can't make any changes or additions. I'll have to get DVC to make me lead and then add Judys name to the Premium reservation. It's no wonder the phones are always tied up...you have to call so many times to get a correct answer and them to get everything straigntened out.

Ok little confused. Do you use the $50 dollar credit to pay for your snacks or are they included?

AGREED! It's so nice to have an "official" connection and so many folks who can give advice/opinions! We are 3 adults doing the F&W premium package too. I'll be honest it's probably worth it to us just for having seats... Haha!

Has anyone confirmed that the 10 concierge areas will have seats?

I'm a bit on the fence about booking. I can see the $50 gift card value and the $80 after party value. I understand that the wine, truffles, wine glass and MagicBand have a monetary value as well, but we likely wouldn't bother buying any of those things. If CMs/Managers have confirmed that the premium areas contain seating then that might make it worthwhile to us!

Also, this is pure speculation but has anyone else been considering where the 10 locations might be?

I've circled more than 10 on this map, but these are my ideas of where the locations could be.

The problem with the circles is that is also where a lot of the booths are so then where are they going?
That spot across from Canada held the Greece booth last year.
The spot near America had the booth with the lobster rolls (they get creative on that one so I can't recall the name)
The spot between Morocco and France was the Belgium booth

That's just what I remember quickly off my head.

Now some of your circles are where I thought they would have this.

And then if you have the spot near the two shops what do you get delivered from there?

This has been my problem with the 10 spots. Once you actually block out the locations for the booths it's getting crowded!

It's pretty easy to move the booths, and they are just speculation on my part.

Greece could be moved close to Hawaii and Desserts and Champagne, Belgium could be moved closer to New Zealand and Morocco, Hops and Barley could be moved to the other side of the American Adventure.

As far as what runners could get in the area between the two shops: Hawaii, Craft Beers, Terra, Brazil, Australia, were all in that area last year.

I can not even begin to speculate where booths and premium areas will be since this will be my first food and wine visit ever, but I am very intrigued.

I am very interested to see how this all turns out.

Also I think it's very interesting that there are so many comments on the Disney Parks Blog article pertaining to these new offerings and nobody has answered them yet. Is that normal?

I thought that was a bit odd also.
