Culinary demos and beverage seminars represent great value when it comes to Festival events. They’re also a great way to learn in a fun, festive setting.

    Hmmm. Wonder what happened to the Allergen-Free Demos that were supposed to happen on the 2nd & 4th too? I only see 2 demos by Amanda Freitag on October 3rd. Hmmmm.

  2. Lisa N says

    Is it just me, or are there less celebrity chefs on the list compared to last year? It seems to be dominated by WDW chefs.

  3. Jennifer G. says

    I agree Lisa N., it seems like their saving the celebrity chefs for the dinners with the bigger price tag.

    But even without a celebrity chef, those seminars are a great experience!

  4. Katrina says

    Any word yet on the premium package for hotel guests? I’m really hoping to do that thus year.

  5. Mark says

    Thank you again AJ. You beat Tables in Wonderland by about three hours. Looking forward to the demos, but given how terrible the presenter from Puerto Rico was last year ( we walked out), I think we’ll give the Dominican Republic presenter a miss.

  6. says

    Katrina — We are still awaiting confirmation regarding whether or not it will return. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear — stay tuned! :-)

  7. Dawn Kidle says

    Yeah, I also noticed less celebrity chefs this year. I’ve never been able to book one and wanted to try my luck again. Might try for Amanda Freitag.
    However, we did Kevin Dundon last year and it was an amazing experience!! He was hilarious and the Duck was the best I ever had. Highly recommend him! I’d go to him again but looks like he’s during the week i’ll be out of town.

  8. Cheryl says

    Any word on whether the F&W Premium Package will return? Since we’re so close to the booking date for all other events, I’m losing hope. I enjoyed it so much last year, I’ll be disappointed if it doesn’t return.

  9. Christine says

    Anyone know if an AP holder can purchase tickets (preferably at a discount) for their companion as well?
