The Fall 2015 Mickey Monitor is out, and for once, Matt and I each received a copy and on the same day. This basically never happens. Either one or the other gets a copy, or we receive them weeks apart. Anyway, this issue has a bunch of information on Food & Wine, so let’s take a look! You can click for larger images as well.
As we know, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary and runs from September 25 through November 16. Being introduces are several “Buds” representing different Flavors. They kind of give me a Kitchen Kabaret vibe. We also know that the kiosks are expanding past World Showcase and into Future World.
The cast of The Chew will be at the Festival from October 7-9.
Party for the Senses will be held on Saturdays from 7-9:30 on October 3, 10, 17, 24, & 31. There will be three special themed nights: October 10 will host select cast from The Chew, October 24 will feature Disney chefs from around the world, and October 31 will be an Elegant Halloween.
Being introduced this year is Remy’s Hide & Squeak, a scavenger hunt (available for purchase) to find the hidden Remys around World Showcase. Once the mission is completed, you earn a special surprise. Passholder-exclusive merchandise is also available.
Passholders receive a 10% dining discount during lunch and dinner at select restaurants. They also receive a 15% the Food & Wine Ultimate VIP Tour Experience as well as other select tours.
A separate cardstock piece was featured with information on how passholders can receive a commemorative 20th Anniversary port wine glass.
There will also be 12 trading cards of the Taste Buds to collect.
Finally was a feature on Jockey Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, slated to open this fall.
There’s certainly a lot to look forward to this fall at WDW! I’m definitely looking forward to Food & Wine and Jock Lindsey’s. What are you looking forward to?
