    We have done the Italian Food & Wine Pairing and loved it. One of the best things we have ever done at F&W Festival.

    The Beer & Pizza pairing at Via Napoli was a huge surprise to us last year. We were expecting beer. and pizza. And instead got good beers and great foods. I can post pictures if anyone is interested, but you can also find them on here somewhere... :rotfl:

    Thank you all for your prayers - they'll see the oncologist on Friday, so we'll know a bit more then. My BFF is holding up pretty well.

    OOOOO - that's a great idea. I bought the ticket for Saturday night, but wasn't sure what I would be doing Friday...maybe I'll go that way with it.

    Putting together our list of must do's. My DH is not so sure the
    Discovery of Grand Marnier is going to be worth the price $65.00 pp. Expecially after he read the one review attached to it. A man and his wife attended and wrote they were very upset at the price and little food and hardly any alcohol in the samples. :confused3 I know a couple of you went last year I believe Elin and Laura...but my brain is a bit fried today. :rotfl: Can anyone who attended give me their thoughts please. I would love to go. Here is the listing for 2012.

    This seminar showcases the talents of a Grand Marnier cocktail master. Included:
    * Indulge in a glass of Champagne
    * Sample several Grand Marnier tastings
    * Savor two specialty desserts
    * Mixology lesson
    Read the details on the 2010 Grand Marnier Tasting here.

    When: Sundays, September 30, October 7 & 21 from 2:45-4:15PM
    Where: Festival Center
    Pricing $65.00

    Ann,

    Taste, Shake and Indulge Like the French: We felt it was a great bargain, but it was less expensive then ($45 I believe).

    We had fun, plus we had our fill of food & beverages. ;) And if I remember correctly, there was a lot of tasting, shaking and indulging going on!! :rotfl:

    It was held in Bistro and we had the place to ourselves. It's too bad Bistro is being rehabbed and you'll have to be in the Festival Center (although I love the Festival Center!).

    I think that if it's something you want to do, you should do it! :thumbsup2

    Did I just help or hurt?!! :rotfl2:

    Thank you Laura. Maybe I missed another Grand Mariner seminar? I will go check the list. This sounds interesting and would be fun.

    I am looking at the Italian lunch and wine one which is the same price if I remember correctly. I need to do some more research, but I have to have something to eat first. All this food talk and all I have had today is a cup of coffee. :coffee:

    I think Taste, Shake & Indulge morphed into "Discovery of Grand Marnier". They changed the name and raised the price! :(

    I agree with Laura that for $45 it was a great bargain, Ann. For $65 and having it in the Festival Center... that I am not so sure about. FYI - We had PLENTY to drink!! :eek:

    Yes we did!! :rotfl:

    I'm sure all the DVC have been booked for quite awhile now. At the 7 month mark things were booking up pretty quickly. :guilty:

    Any non-DVC availability? I'm sure Swan & Dolphin are booked by now. How about a Value? Any availability there? Worst case would they consider one of the DTD good neighbor resorts? Allears and Mousesavers often have links with some great rates for those hotels. :confused3

    There is room in WDW resorts. Just thought they might be able to save a little money renting Sandy's points. Even in August it has never been a problem in years past, actually.

    There's a thread on the DVC boards discussing the issue of how it is becoming more difficult to get reservations.

    http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2968580

    I only read a few posts, but consensus seems to be "more members, less availability". :headache:

    We've only been members for 6 years, but we too have noticed it becoming more difficult, especially the last couple years. :confused3


    You're very welcome! :goodvibes



    Happy Sunday!! :)

    :wave2: My 3 kids, DIL and I spent the day with my parents, celebrating their 83rd birthdays a week early! (I'll be at Fort Leonard Wood, MO for their birthdays 8/9 & 10. :sad1:)

    JD didn't come with us as he was at the Braves game...... in a Suite! :goodvibes

    I have so much to do the next couple of days; then fly to MO Wednesday morning. I won't be around much the next couple weeks, but will check in when I can.

    I am going to try to book the 10/14 Mexican Tequila Lunch for JD & myself, but if I don't get through right away 8/14, I won't be able to keep trying (or holding) so I'm prepared to be disappointed. :guilty:

    I booked the "Baked" Culinary Demo for Laura, JD and myself this morning! :yay:

    Also booked the Las Rocas Wine Seminar for the girls and myself as well as the Neige Premium Beverage Seminar for them.

    That is all we are doing extra, other than the Swolphin Classic and Wine Blending Seminar.

    Less than 60 days now!!

    It's lonely around here!! :rotfl:

    AKL-IPO got DH & I the Mexican Tequila Lunch on 10/14 (Elin, you should have seen JD's face light up when I told him!! :rotfl2:)

    I'm hoping work doesn't get in the way, but I may have to adjust my arrival/departure dates by a day or 2. :headache: Hopefully I'll know soon (although UM likes to do things spur of the moment - their definition of soon and mine are waaaay different!! :rotfl2:)


    Happy Sunday! :goodvibes
