    Re: Sip and Stroll at Epcot - Sunday, October 18, 2009

    I agree with Werner that a D23 area set aside during the regular festival would have been really nice and would have benefited the most members but the enhancements to this event make it a much better value. Hey, I would have happily pay $5 for a little lounge with a couple of tastes of wine set in such a way as a people watching spot. But I guess that isn't quite flashy enough.

    YAY! I haven't been to Disney Quest since 2007. I'm so glad I bought tickets to this!

    D23's Sip & Stroll is only 4 days away and I'm SUPER excited! I leave for Florida tomorrow after class. I was wondering how many other Mice Chatters are attending this event?

    D23's Sip & Stroll was amazing! Some of the highlights included getting to meet Jon Secada after the show, surprise Fast Passes to pretty much every attraction, listening to Fred MacMurry's daughter talk about meeting Walt Disney and being at the grand opening of Epcot, the commemorative Sip & Stroll champagne flutes, and watching Illuminations through special glasses that made Mickey heads appear for every firework. Obviously, there was much much more and I would write a detailed trip report, but I'm really tired. Maybe I'll do one when I have time, but I must say that I hope they do Sip & Stroll again in the future. It was definitely worth the money and we had an amazing time.

    Oh, I hope we get those fast passes at Magic & Merriment in December! That would be icing on the cake.

    Howdy,
    Here's a couple links to my trip report of D23's Sip & Stroll

    Part 1: D23 Sip and Stroll -- Part 1 of 2 (All Ears® Guest Blog)
    Part 2: D23 Sip and Stroll -- Part 2 of 2 (All Ears® Guest Blog)

    Asides from the listed giveaways, we received a Pam Brandon cookbook, got a chance to meet & greet with Jon Secada after the concert, a Party for the Senses Wineglass, an exclusive D23 Sip & Stroll / Arribas Bros glass, and a pair of "3D glasses".
