    OMG! I had "We got the beat" running through my head all day after reading the Disney Blog's update the other day. I would love if Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was added during our trip!

    Thanks for the thread!!

    If I'm only going to be able to go on one day and want to hit The Best Kiosks, any suggestions? I will be on the meal plan so I can use my snack credits. I will probably get like 2 things. What are your favorite/MUST have items?

    Is there a list of the countries and the menus somewhere I know I've seen it but, can't find it right now.

    Use the Disney Food Blog link in the first post, that site has a full list of all last year's menu items, with prices and photos. Just remember that some things are going to change this year. Probably including the prices.

    I've never been to F&W or Eat to the Beat concerts. I was wondering how early people start lining up for the concerts?

    :wave: If you have a friendly travel companion, I suggest you get a few more items and share.

    We can all countdown to when the menus are released and then salivate together. :goodvibes

    Beers of the World, here I come! Escargot in France is my historical favorite. I'm sure they'll have it again this year. And beer cheese soup. I'm drooling on my keyboard.

    In the past, the bands played @ 5:30, 6:45 and 8:00 p.m. Depending on the band, you may need to be at the American Adventure Amphitheater up to an hour before showtime.

    Not to be disagreeable, but I don't agree with this advice. There is no way I can go a whole day of walking (like 10 miles) on just a few little bites of food. We definitely need one "real" meal.

    Are any of the kiosks open after the Wine & Dine half marathon? I ask because my wife, two of her coworkers, and I are all running the W&D half marathon and we are looking forward to the after party to try some things. We are eating at Tutto Italia for lunch to carb up the day of the run and then not eating again until after the run is over (if there is a place to eat).

    I'm figuring that if the kiosks are open then we'll be in for some pretty heavy crowds since the run is now sold out. I'm thinking that a lot of people bought "after party" tickets too. From the pictures I have seen it looks kinda busy.

    Thanks in advance for any info. :)

    Unless it's Hanson. I'm actually from the same state, and was cracking up that THEY were the band while we were there. However people were lined up at noon. I kid you not NOON. They're cute boys and all, but Holy Teen Idol Batman, I would not be sitting in the rain at noon to see Hanson.

    I have never waited hours to see any of the bands, and I've seen lots of them.

    I did wait about 45 minutes all the way down by Germany to see Rick Springfield, but I still got in the 4th row.

    Can someone who has seen Dennis DeYoung's show tell me, does he do any Styx covers? I assume he has to since I don't think he has done a lot of solo work.

    Never mind! I found the answer myself looking at his web page. For those of you wondering, his tour is entitled "The Music of Styx", so yea, I guess he might do a song or two ....or three, or more :) . I know a lot of folks aren't impressed by the November lineup, but for me Dennis is the best name on the entire list!
