Disney World’s Flying Fish Cafe Wine Dinners Announced

The Flying Fish Cafe at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort will be hosting Wine Dinners during the 2011 Epcot Food & Wine Festival.

Five delicious dinners are slated, in addition to the Signature Dinner scheduled for November 3rd (which we’ve heard is sold out, but we hope it’s not)!

Add a Flying Fish Wine Dinner to your Festival touring plans for a truly memorable occasion. We absolutely adore Flying Fish Cafe, and I hope you will, too!

    I’m wondering about that too. I expect them to be in the range of the Chef’s Counter or F&W signature dinner but they might price each week differently.

  2. Bill says

    Do you know how and where they will announce these? I called the restaurant but never received a call back.

  3. Chris says

    They just released details about the 10/6 dinner and there were still 9 seats left.
