It seems no one bought the package or they are all coming later.
I'll post pics later

Still half of the theater empty. It is really cold today so that might be making people leave or stay inside

    If anyone ends up with an extra Figment passholder magnet and would like a Minnie from 2018 F&G fest, let me know. I have one to trade.

    I’m sorry in advance if I missed it reading through this thread, but has anybody been able to convert a quick service credit to three snacks (at the same booth) like at F&W?

    If anyone sees the Almond Frangipane Cake (at the Pop Eats stand) would you please ask if there is a recipe for it?

    Thank you!

    What time do the food booths open?ETA: Found it - they open at 11.

    However, how early does Odessey center open if you want to try to catch the class?

    I am going in February. I’m not a figment fan and would be happy to trade my figment for your Minnie.

    Great photos! Looking forward to it! Great to see Steve Blanchard still at it. We're going to try to catch Heidi Blickenstaff and Gavin Lee.

    Eager to hear more food reviews. I keep seeing conflicting reviews on different blogs.

    I’ll likely do what I always do and just go with what I’ve already picked out, although I was hoping to whittle down my wished for list since the festival food is expensive.

    Likely going to add another Epcot morning in to free up more time for festival happenings.

    We liked all of our selections, least favorite was the scallop just because it was only one for the price

    What is this one?
    From Germany booth saint-honore tart

    Quick question about the Broadway concert series: Do they perform the same songs at every show or is each set unique?

    He was amazing, of course there were Fansies in the theater so we all geeked out when they did they're Newsies medley
    My DD is super excited for Heidi, we saw her and the original cast of Something Rotten in NYC, sort of wish she would sing her song from that show but it's not a Disney show.

    I watched a live vlog on Friday. The Vlogger expected them to mix it up, but he filmed 2 performances and they were the same songs and order. It was still incredible and I can’t wait to be there in person. I don’t know if it will be the same for the other performers.

    On the app it says 11am. It also says that taste track is closed so not sure if that's accurate

    We were at the festival for the first two days. We enjoyed a number of dishes. My favorite was Sous Vide Poulet Rouge Chicken Roulade at Pop Eats. The dish was beautiful and the chicken was very flavorful. The Pop’t Art: Modern-design Sugar Cookie with Strawberry Filling at the same booth was unfortunately our least favorite. Even with five of us taking bites (two tweens and two adults), about a third of it was still thrown away. It was just too sweet. However, those same tweens loved the Artist Palette Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookie. I think they enjoyed spreading the “paint” around the cookie and actually ate quite a bit of it even though it was very large.

    I did not try it because I do not like lobster, but those around us at Taste Track were raving about the lobster mac and cheese. The trio of churros at that booth were not good though (churros did not taste freshly made and the frosting was very sticky).

    My daughter and I did the Ink and Paint workshop on Saturday. We both felt it was not worth our time. Ugh. We both had a hard time following instructions based on the camera angles for the overhead projector. We inked a Mickey Mouse. She said this year future sessions will also sometimes have Minnie Mouse or Goofy I think.

    It was very crowded, but we found most of the food lines moved quickly. Some dishes just take a while to make or plate (Sous Vide Poulet Rouge Chicken Roulade for example).... So bring your patience.

    Both of our tweens made a scarf which was very fun. A small square scarf was about $29 per “experience”. We found it was worth it. The girls got to make their own and they turned out very different which was really cool. You pick your own colors and then can select a design. Really a fun project and a memorable experience overall.

    We also enjoyed stopping by the Tom’s tent. One of the artists made some amazing custom designs of my daughter’s horses. They have lots of fun Disney choices too. The hand painted designs seemed to range from $25 to $70 plus the cost of the shoes (which I think were around 40ish).

    We really enjoyed shopping all the artist tents as well. So much fun to see the range of artwork. This was our first time at the Festival. We have also done Garden and FW…. but this one was our favorite overall since it seemed to have a little something for everyone in our group: art, shopping, activities, and FOOD :)
