    So excited!!! I actually got through on the phones by 0703...booked 3D Dessert Party with sweet seats for 10/26. The CM was slightly confused...she kept asking me if I wanted the 3D dessert party or the sweet sunday seats. Then she asked what time I wanted the dessert party...with some gentle guidance we got where we needed to be. LOL...I can't wait :banana:

    Finally figured out where to book on-line. Book 3-D Desert party for 10/5. Was not able to get Jamie Deen demo on 10/6. Disney does a terrible job on there web sites. Cannot believe there was not a link from there Food & Wine Site.

    Question: If I make 3D Dessert or PFTS reservations online, will they let me upgrade them to the special seating later? Once things calm down a bit (and assuming there are special seats still available)?

    35 minutes. And then I got a CM who was a little slow. But I booked Wine View lounge at the 10/13 PFTS. Decided to splurge since my schedule is too undecided to book much else.

    Side topic- I love the Disney hold music as much as the next gal, but Small World? Really? Just hearing that song over and over while on hold is probably enough to make weaker mortals hang up. Hmmm. Maybe its a part of a disney conspiracy to clear the system?

    We're doing PFTS with reserved seat on 10/27 also - was told we will be sharing a table (fine with me) - I don't think the WVL is worth the extra $100 given this new option...kinda surprised some people are still booking it.

    Thanks- I got through one online, and then was connected with an agent to get the rest. Now I need to go back b/c DH wants to do a 3D dessert party. ;)

    <<<I called at 7 and was on hold for 26 minutes. I did get both events I wanted:
    11/7 F&W pairing at Tokyo Dining
    11/8 Italian F&W pairing>>>>>

    Ugh, I called at 7, was told 15 minute wait and I am still waiting. I want to book the 11/8 Italian F&W pairing, if I make it we will be there with you, Krissalee.

    I was very fortunate and was speaking with someone at 7:01am. Unfortunately, Robert Irvine was sold out already. She was as shocked as I was. I guess Annual Passholders, DVC members, etc. Oh well. We will still have a really good time. Got some other reservations that I wanted. Good luck everyone.

    Wow! That is unbelievable and unprofessional. Too bad you didn't get an opportunity to get his name and report him.
