    CAUTION: The passholder glasses are NOT dishwasher safe. I found out the hard way. The Food and wine logo on the bottom of the glass partially peeled off. Then I noticed it said hand wash only. :(

    There's no need to buy water. Any quick service and Starbucks will give you water for free!

    Ugh. That's been true of some of their other glasses as well. So frustrating.

    We attended the French Family Meal Traditions event this afternoon. I’ll have a full write-up with pictures on my site in the next day or two, but I just wanted to say here how enjoyable it was. The food was outstanding, and the wine/champagne pours were generous and frequent. One of our table mates had at least 20 glasses. I exhibited admirable restraint and had a measly 8. ;)

    We were there as well. Food was delicious, people seated with us were delightful and we had a marvelous time. I had sparkling water as I'm unable to drink wine right now, but everyone agreed that the Bordeaux was the best.

    That's probably why I didn't notice any changes because I wasn't tracking beer. I was tracking the food :)

    Ireland. The Guinness Baileys Shake and Roasted Irish Sausage are very good! And it is near the IG, between UK and Canada.

    LOL! When I came in thru the IG after arriving on Southwest, I just stopped at the first food booth I could find that didn't have a long line I was so hungry! Those Southwest pretzels don't stick with you long. Fortunately the Ireland booth is close. In my case, I went the other way and stopped at Brazil for the seafood stew. It was just OK, but I was starving so it tasted delicious. Then I went to Hops and Barley for the Carrot Cake-now that was very good.

    We picked up our cutting board and magnets today. The board quality is pretty good and now comes in a nifty passholder bag. I’m impressed! 18CFA1DA-0261-48BD-A5F5-9D230B746652.jpeg

    The passholder cutting boards may be gone by the time I'm there, but I was curious if anyone only had four park days and still managed to get one. I know I'd need to enter Epcot at least once every day I'm on site- but are there rules about length of park visit? Would four back to back visits qualify? Appreciate the feedback- wondering if it is worth the planning/effort.

    Good to see the cutting boards are still in stock. My wife wants one bad, and we arrive for a four day trip a week from Thursday. This will be our first visit as annual passholders as well as first food and wine visit.

    No rules on length of visit. Could enter and exit- they’re just tracking entrances. But must be on 4 different days (don’t need to be consecutive).

    Yes, 4 days in a row would qualify. They verify that you entered 4 separate days. The magnets qualify on Day 1, but we picked them up with our boards.

    It's nice that they gave a bag! We didn't get anything and ended up getting a bag from the store in Norway, after I held them in my lap on FEA :rotfl:
