    Re: Food and Wine weekends at the resort

    Oh this sounds GREAT. I am in love with the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot so this should be a fun idea at DLR. Especially with DCA not exactly having any "countries" to begin with.

    I think it sounds like a blast! Hopefully it catches on and they will expand next year, with more reasonable costs.

    This is going to be a great success, I predict. The wine and tapas stands at D.C.A. will add some festivity to the park.

    I'm only 18 so I don't think the festival means much to me.

    No it can, I did EPCOT's F&WF under 21...didn't have as much fun as I would of had I been to see the German Beer Keg tapping then go try it...but it was still fun.

    This could be a huge thing for DCA! As mentioned above it does rest on the value parts. Can you get in and spend $3 at multiple booths for little tastes? If you can I see DCA having a high sucess with it. If it is all the same Californian meals and wines at sit down places like you get now...well I don't see too much coming from it.
    Right step though. Gotta watch the excution.

    but maybe it will be like that with the closed resturants.. actually getting to sample the menu at a resturant not open since day 5 of the park..lol

    Flower & guarden would be a good festival for DCA as well.. just remember.. alergies stay away unless you brought the medicine... (i get teary eyes at epcot when i go as it is.. lol)

    I don't think that you have to have "countries" to have a wide variety of ethic food. In the Golden Dreams presentation at DCA it talks about all the different ethic groups that came to California. Why not feature all those influences:

    Mexican
    Chinese
    Japanese
    Korean
    Vietnamese
    Thai
    Indian
    Italian
    Irish
    Danish (Remember Solvag, California!)
    To name a few...

    All of these cultures offer a wide selections of food choices. I don't mind including the wonderful California creations. They are usually a blend of the culture above, like sushi tacos or cabbage burritos.

    I many ways I agree... There is a tendancy (and it's a myth) that wine is this ultra exclusive experiance... And wine paring is something that is such an exact rocket science that people have to pay a LOT of money to enjoy it...

    That is simply not true... There are many Wine Enthusiasts who have suggested that often the best paring of a $150 Napa Valley Cabernet is a $9 Cheese Burger at your favorate burger spot... It TRUE... People should be enjoying wine with BBQ, Corn Dogs, Turkey Legs, Pizza... Even Sushi...

    That should be the message...

    Re: Food and Wine weekends at the resort

    /\ And I'm sure you are going to find people who will say the best paring to roasted leg of lamb is Bud Light...so you are right, it should be a much more accessable expirience.

    I still say it's good they are trying, but reading the schedule it seems to be trying to lure in high $$$ payers.

    No, I do agree. I'm just saying it will be a different experience and set-up. It doesn't seem as natural with a park based on one state vs. a park with a number of countries to begin with to start putting up the "South Africa" and "India" booths. That's all.

    And I agree, you can STILL have a blast if you're under 21. TRUST ME. I did it and I really want to go back.

    It makes me wonder... are they going to have muscians there too? At Epcot there's the Eat to the Beat concert series. Will they have that? Because that would make it even better!

    Tempt your taste buds with appetizer-sized treats of Fresh Tomato Salad, Lobster and Pepper Jack Quesadillas, Santa Maria Tri-Tip and more! Specialty items range in price from only $4 - $5 each and are available at one of the Marketplaces located in Disney's California Adventure® Park. Click here for Marketplace menus.

    Looks pretty interesting to me and not horribly pricy- the Michele Chiarlo moscato is VERY nice! Bonny Doon?hrm....

    Good, $4-$5 snacks are perfect! Its just what it needs to get everyone excited.
    I must say I didn't endulge myself at EPCOT's festival but I'm glad I had the option to do so rather cheaply.

    I like the concert idea. Food goes better with music. It makes it more of a festival.

    I have to say that the Tastes list did make me feel better about the festival. Now it is up to execution. The price is higher than WDW but the portions might be larger. Who knows? Now if some nice music is playing, festive colorful banners are flying and there is enough foot traffic to make it feel like a party, then this could work.

    I don't know if there is a stage there to put a band, but if the Mariachi band is available, it would work. I would like to see more of a variety of music styles but we take what we can get.
