    I am so glad to see this new Mini Guide released! My wife and I will be going to Food & Wine for the first time this year, and frankly it’s a little overwhelming for newbies like us. But I just downloaded the PDF and started skimming through it, and am already finding it helpful. I’m sure this is going to be a central part of planning our first Food & Wine experience, and at 100+ pages, this “mini” guide is going to keep us busy for a while :)

  2. says

    Thanks, Keith! I’m so glad you’re already finding it helpful! Definitely check out the day-by-day schedule — it’s HUGELY helpful (I’m so glad we did it — I’m already using it for reference!). Also, the touring strategies should be useful for you guys, too. Will I see you there?

  3. Kim says

    I’d like to attend one of the Cat Cora dinners–evening or the three-course noon event on 10/28. Any additional information on what are the difference between these? Does she have a new cookbook out this year and will there be a book-signing opportunity as in years past? I downloaded the book but still had these questions. Thanks.

  4. says

    Hi Kim! Disney hasn’t released any specialty info on the differences between the dinner and lunch events at Kouzzina as far as I know. They may or may not release this info, or you might want to ask when calling 407-WDW-FEST to book. I haven’t heard about a new cookbook, but Disney usually does not release the information about book signings and meet and greets until the festival begins (probably too much subject to change). According to the Chef Index, Cat is doing a culinary demo on October 29th — that would be the best time to guest that she’d be doing a meet and greet or book signing. Check at the festival center when you arrive in Disney World to find out if Cat is doing any book signings.

  5. Keith C (TheFugitiveGuy) says

    Hi AJ,

    We’ll be down the weekend of Oct 20 – Oct 24, but actually the first two days we’re cramming in a bunch of Platinum Plan activities, so we’ll be pretty busy with that on Fri and Sat. Somehow we’ll just have to experience as much Food & Wine as we can on the Sunday and Monday before we fly back, and maybe that will include meeting you if you’re there :)

    Yes, the day-by-day schedule is really helpful, because otherwise I found myself trying to search so many different pages on the Disney site to see what was going on. It’s nice to see it all presented in one place.

    Never having been to F&W before, but hearing such good things about the culinary demos, the problem I was facing was how many things to sign up for. But then I saw your two day strategy section, and now I don’t feel worried about being overly ambitious for trying five events (Sweet Sunday, three food demos, one wine demo). Really helpful advice in your guide!!

  6. John Grigas says

    This book is so much more than I thought it was going to be. I had avoided it, thinking I could get all the info free online in various places . . . maybe so, but not like this!

    I’ll have it on my Samsung smartphone while we’re down there. We actually have a game plan, as opposed to other years, which has really added to our excitement!

    Most helpful are the hyperlinks, where you can jump to more details by clicking on the name (i.e Mixology Seminars . . . thanks for the “heads up” on that one! We booked for Nov 7!)

  7. says

    Keith C — Yes, you should be fine with 5 events. Not TOO much time to do a lot of rides, but definitely time to take in a lot of the festival! Sounds awesome!

    John — Yay!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Yes, we wanted to be sure to give information, strategies, and details that you can’t find anywhere else online, including our own experiential advice (that can be priceless!). I’m excited to try a Mixology seminar, too!
