Booking for Special Events and Low-Cost Seminars and Demonstrations opens up to the general public on June 14, 2018. But certain affinity groups will have early access to booking!

So, if you are a Disney Vacation Club Member, Disney World Annual Passholder, Tables in Wonderland Member, or a Golden Oak Resident, booking likely opens up for you at 9:00 AM on June 12, 2018. Note that, at this time, we are not sure if early booking access applies to Disney Visa holders.

    Beth, word is 9AM for the early booking on June 12 and 7AM for the regular booking on June 14!

    Am I missing a link to details? How are we supposed to book events tomorrow (I am an AP holder) with no details on the special events? It seems a little odd.

  3. Mattie says

    Likewise, I’m wondering about the Parisian Afternoon? How can early booking open tomorrow if all the events haven’t been announced? Do I just call tomorrow morning, and hope that the Parisian afternoon will be available for booking even though it hasn’t been announced yet..?

    There must be something seriously blowing up with the F&W team at Disney this year. It’s just 13 hours until the phone lines open but there isn’t a listing of the signature dining events, or most of the other events either. Plus the beverage seminars and culinary demos seem to be greatly reduced this year.

  5. Brooke says

    I’ve been on hold for 16 minutes so far (with 30 minutes to go according to the initial hold wait time). There’s still nothing up about the Parisian breakfast or a lot of other events. :(
