The sixth annual Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic is Friday and Saturday, Oct. 30 and 31, and will feature more than 40 food and wine stations. The outdoor event — weather permitting — takes place on the causeway between the hotels, although it has grown in recent years and now spills out along the waterway, too.

The F&WC showcases the hotels’ various restaurants, including Il Mulino New York Trattoria, Shula’s Steak House and Todd English’s bluezoo. (This weekend traditionally sees a visit from English, as well.) The resort’s world champion pastry chef, Laurent Branlard, will also be on hand serving a variety of desserts.

New to the Classic this year is a food truck area that will include a macaroni and cheese truck from Cabot Cheese.


It isn’t all eating and drinking, though. There are seminars on such topics as pasta making, sushi and wine blending. OK, that’s eating and drinking, too, but in an educational way.

The event is 5:30 to 9 p.m. each day (check the site for seminar times). Tickets are $105 per person and include tax and unlimited food and beverage samples. (Heck, it costs about that much just to get through the gate into Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival.) Wait, hang on. There’s another ticket level of $125 per person that includes admission to the beer garden, so take that “unlimited beverage” comment with a grain of salt (all condiments are included). Seminars are priced from $45 to $60. If all of this makes you tired, you can opt for the two-night package that includes festival tickets for two and accommodations for $684. No, I don’t know if that includes the beer garden.

You can get those questions answered at the Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic website, and you can buy advance tickets there, too. Or you can call 800-227-1500.
