2012 Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic Menus, Meet the Chefs, Special Rates

As you know, the Walt Disney World The Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic is back this year with seminars, tastings, sweets, and beverages! And scroll down to see some special rate codes from Disney Food Blog for this year’s classic…

The Third Annual Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic will take place Friday, October 12, and Saturday, October 13, 2012, from 5:30 – 9:00 pm at the Swan and Dolphin Resorts in Walt Disney World. These resorts are just a short walk from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which means this is a great way to supplement your 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival trip!

Food and wine lovers can immerse themselves in this culinary festival while strolling the Crescent Lake causeway. Savor culinary delights from the resort’s award winning restaurants and lounges while listening to live music.

With 17 restaurants and lounges, the Swan and Dolphin resorts have a nationally-recognized culinary team that can’t wait to show off their talents! I had a chance to go to the event last year, and I can highly recommend it.
