    Glad I can provide some comic relief! Tip your waitresses, I'll be here all week!


    She's still not really doing much better, they can't do any of the treatments yet, but hopefully next week they will be able to do the skin graft stuff again.

    Booth menus are up - http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2012-epcot-food-and-wine-festival-marketplace-booths-and-menus/

    On a sad note, not sure when I'll get there now. It would still be the 10th at the latest, but my BFF, whose family I was bringing down earlier, just found out the her DH's lung cancer came back and is now a stage IV. She's determined to make this trip as it will probably be their last as a family (boys will be 7 and 5) so I'm praying he makes it. Please say a little prayer or think a good thoughts if you could.

    Tracy

    I've started looking over the food booth selections and the paid events! :thumbsup2

    The problem I'm going to have is that the deminars open for online booking August 10th........ when I'm working on the Army base. That doesn't worry me too much. I just want to book a wine and a culinary so JD can see what they're all about! ;)

    What does worry me is the paid events opening at 7am on August 14th...... It will be 6am Central, but I will either be on my way to the Base or on the Base by then. I don't think they'll understand that I need to reserve and pay for some Disney World events!!! :rotfl2:

    Flying Fish might be the only special event I get to this trip..... oh, and the Food & Wine Classic! :woohoo: Maybe that's enough! ;)

    Tracy - I am sorry to hear about your friend's daughter. That is heart-breaking. I hope you will be able to make the trip and make it a happy one.

    I don't think I am booking any special events this year. We will see what the deminars are, but as for the other things, I am planning to take a pass this time out. Nothing that is affordable really "speaks" to me.

    Elin, I tend to agree. I think experiencing the Food & Wine Classic will be all the special events we need! :thumbsup2

    I do plan to book one wine and one culinary for when JD is here -- but he doesn't arrive until the 12th.

    I'm so sorry to hear this Tracy.


    I've been going over the paid events. I would really like to do PFTS and since you ladies convinced me to bring our little scooter tray tables, we can do the Classic on Friday and PFTS on Saturday. I want to do a lunch and am looking at either the Tequila, or one of the Italian ones. I can't do the wine pairing one because it would be the same night as Flying Fish and that woud just be too much to each in one day, so maybe the beer or the regional lunch.

    Alison,

    Elin did the Via Pizza & Beer tasting last year so she can give you her thoughts on that. Her pictures looked very appetizing! :goodvibes

    We've done the Tutto Food & Wine pairing and it was FABULOUS!! We had a Citricos ADR for that evening (figuring the Food & Wine Pairing was just tastings and we would want dinner) but every one of us was still full from the Pairing!!! We ended up ordering appetizers at Citricos! ;)

    I've heard good reviews of the Tequila lunch. :)

    I saw Elin's pictures last year. The pizza was way cool how they made three different types in one pie and I imagine that the beer tasted different with each one.

    I'm leaning toward the tequila, only becuase I would pick Saturday and we won't really be doing a lot of the kiosks on that day due to how busy they get. We could do the Tequila lunch, go back to BCV enjoy the pool relax and get ready for PFTS. The other lunches are on weekdays (which would cut into my kiosk time and appetite).

    Has anyone ever done the single tickets for the S&D Classic? I was thinking about that because, it might be more worth it for us. Fran can't really drink because she takes so much morphine that alcohol is a bad idea. Neither of us have very big appetites any more, so I was thinking we might get by just trying the things one at a time and buying the tickets for the items. I would have the wine, but she would probably pass.

    Alison - last year I did the single tickets on my second night! I had booked the wine blending seminar the first day and wasn't even planning to do the Causeway tasting -- until I saw it!!!! I did the all-you-can-eat Friday night, and couldn't resist coming back Saturday!! :thumbsup2

    I don't remember the number of single tickets I bought (but I believe I spent $15) and that was plenty! (although I might have still been stuffed from Friday night when I went on a bit of a tasting spree!) :rotfl:

    Once the girls are settled into their "new lives" and are certain that they will be able to join us for part of our trip I am sure we will look at booking one of the deminars. But that might not be until late in August. Part of what determines what we book will be based on availability then!
