The ticket pickup in the Festival Center is for culinary demos, beverage seminars, and mixology sessions in the Festival Center. For other events, including wine dinners and afternoon wine pairings, there are no tickets. Check-in is at the event. You're on a list. You don't need to bring a confirmation e-mail, but it wouldn't hurt to have it. It's been a few years since we've done PFTS, but check-in was outside near the entrance to World Showplace (former Millennium Village). There may now also be a check-in location near the America Gardens Theatre, although I hadn't noticed this in previous years.
