WDW Foodie Fest News: Special Room Rate and Free Upgrade at WDW Dolphin

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!

As part of the WDW Foodie Fest, Disney Food Blog readers can arrange a special discount and room upgrade at the WDW Dolphin resort.

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!
