    Since the Fortune Cookie is under construction...some events will take place at the Sunshine Plaza. Also, if you want to see this next year, please support it. CMs were told that if this years F&W doesn't pay for itself, it wont return next year.

    Food and Wine Festival at Disney's California Adventure - April 24 through June 7

    I went last year with a wonderful group of MiceChatters! It was the best time! Sure the wine was nice, the snacks were good but the best part of all was being there with other MiceChatters/Friends and spending the evening hanging out in a relaxed atmosphere and being able just chill and enjoy! I have other obligations this year, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to come down to attend any of this years events with my fellow MiceChatters, but if any of the rest of you can, I heartily suggest it! Its a wonderful way to spend some time!

    Well if this year's event isn't considered "successful", management might want to ask themselves why this event is so successful in Florida.

    I will NEVER understand why the Food and Wine Festival wasn't initiated in the very first year of DCA. With the hugely successful Epcot model, this event is a no-brainer. If the management in California can't get it right, they only have themselves to blame - certainly not the consumer.
