    GO NAN!! :woohoo:

    As for me, I've been wanting to go for a long time, but we have been waiting for the kids to get older... Well, they will both be in college, that's old enough, so DH said yeah lets plan it.

    Rebecca, is there a better time to go earlier vs. later?

    I would say that the first and last weekends are the most crowded- if you can make it for a couple weekdays you can normally do and see more than during the weekend as it is not as busy.

    Again if you can wait until closer to the time you might find a band you really want to see and you could go then.

    If you want to pay for an event, the one that seems to be the best deal for the money is Sweet Sundays.

    I want to use points, so I have a window in which I can make ressies. Not sure when they post the band listings, or any of the other events. Or when tickets are available... This is my favorite part, the planning :) Oh, and the going... :goodvibes

    :cool1: Debbie! That'll be fun. We'll just be missing the F&W festival when we go down for DS's birthday.

    Nancy, you can get those pages done!!!!

    Congrats!! :woohoo: F&W is my most favorite time to be at WDW.

    They usually don't release bands and special event info until the summer, but you can't go wrong whichever week you choose!

    Congrats! I went once and really enjoyed it. We did go during the first week so it was a bit crowded, plus it was during free dining. I'd like to go back, if I convince dh that we don't have to wait 10 years between visits.

    Me too.. once I "boot" all these young'ens out of our happy home, I'm gonna be screaming... "You've raised all these kids"... DH will ask "What are you going to do".. I'm gonna scream w/ tickets in hand "We're going to Disney World to drink around the world!"

    Congratulations, Deb! I love Food and Wine Fest and looking forward to it and MNSSHP this year!

    Definately, week days are much less crowded. The events during the Festival are always changing so each year is a little different but there is lots to do!

    This year, it was too hard to get away during the least crowded time for Food and Wine, so I will probably be there during the most crowded time, the first week...though, I plan to stay away from it most of the weekend.

    My sister goes every year. She's a "local" so she can take a couple days off of work and go. I think it's their favorite time to go.

    Have a great time! I've got years and years until PrincessM is in college, but I can wait ;)

    Congrats Deb!!!!
    you'll have an amazing time!:yay:

    we are trying to decide if we are going next year or not. we talked about it yesterday, just trying to decide on a time frame. but we are also doing a lot of much needed work in the house, so i don't know if it's in the budget or not.:confused3 i'm trying to figure out home much i have to save each week to make it possible!

    and i too have a bit of a wait until bubba goes off to college. i'll just enjoy these days while i have them. i'm not rushing anything.
