The 2011 WDW Foodie Fest is right around the corner, and we hope to see you there! We’ve got food and fun scheduled for October 2 – 8, 2011, the first week of the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, so take a look at WDW Foodie Fest’s Schedule of Events to see when you might be able to join the party!

The WDW Dolphin is conveniently located just a five-minute walk from the Yacht and Beach Club Resort, where our main WDW Foodie Fest event in Ariel’s will take place on October 2nd. In addition, you’ll only be a short walk away from all the foodie fun taking place in Epcot for the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival and from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You can’t get a better location than this!

Disney World Dolphin Resort

Disney Food Blog readers can book for $199 per night AND automatically receive a complimentary upgrade to the next room category!

Stay at the WDW Dolphin any dates between

to be eligible for this rate.

To book, call 888-828-8850 and ask for code FOODFEST

Also, don’t forget that the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic will be coinciding with the Friday and Saturday of WDW Foodie Fest, so you’ll have the prime spot to take advantage of that great event! (We’ll even have a WDW Foodie Fest meet-up there during the Classic, so stay tuned for details.)

Please note this special rate is only for the WDW Dolphin.

DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book Recommendation

On MiceChat, Sam Gennaway recommends Disney World essentials, including The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining!

A quick quote from the review: “[AJ’s] goal was to write a book that is unlike any other Disney guidebook. In that respect, she has succeeded. This could only come from somebody who realizes that dining is more than just eating at Disney, it is an important part of the whole experience. Plus, the book tries really hard to find the proper balance between planning and spontaneity, which is not easy anymore.”

Thanks to Sam, again, for this review, and thanks to MiceChat for sharing it! If you’d like to check out the e-Book, pick up your copy here!
