I’ve had the good fortune and the satisfied stomach of attending the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic 3 of the last 4 years. Each year I come away more impressed with the event and the opportunities guests enjoy to tase the best of local chefs and the global wine scene.
This is the sixth-annual Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic and it will once again be held over Halloween weekend – Friday, October 30, and Saturday, October 31.
All you need to attend is a Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic causeway ticket. It offers guests unlimited tastings at more than 40 stations featuring culinary selections from the hotel’s award-winning restaurants and wine from more than 30 wineries amidst a festive backdrop of live entertainment on the hotel’s scenic causeway. Upgraded ticket options allow guests to enjoy access to a beer garden featuring a wide selection of craft beers and Oktoberfest-inspired cuisine. The event also includes hands-on experiences with the hotel’s chefs and certified beverage experts in a variety of food and beverage seminars.
- Advance-purchase, event-only tickets to enjoy unlimited tastings on the causeway are $105 per person
- Upgraded tickets, including unlimited tastings on the causeway and access to the beer garden, are $125 per person
- Beverage seminars are $45 per person, per class with the purchase of a causeway ticket
- Pasta making, sushi and sake, and cheese seminars are $60 per person, per class with the purchase of a causeway ticket
I recommend taking at least one seminar (one each day is optimal).
