D23 SIP AND STROLL AT EPCOT ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 18, 2009
This recently announced by D23. I am happy that D23 is coming up with events and perks for members. I have two suggestions however. 1) Announce events earlier so that guests have time to plan for them. 2). Make it worth it! In this case, I think that $250 on top of $75 membership fee, in addition to park admission is too much money for what is being offered. I don’t even like Jon Secada! I don’t see the benefit for this one but here are the details-
“Join D23 at Epcot® at the Walt Disney World Resort during the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, as we raise a glass to our wonderful members. Attendees will begin their day in a Hospitality Suite where they will be treated to presentations from some very special guests, includingCulinary Confessions of the PTA Divas and Marketplace Cookbook editor Pam Brandon — plus a few truly magical surprises. The Suite will remain open all day for your relaxation and convenience.
Attendees will be able to stroll through the Festival for lunch before enjoying one of two sessions that are part of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival — a mouth-watering culinary demonstration or a wonderful wine tasting — exclusive to D23 Members and their guests.
As evening falls, attendees will receive reserved seating for Jon Secada‘s “Eat to the Beat” concert at the America Gardens Theatre, before indulging in a private Party for the Senses — the signature dining experience of Food & Wine — just for D23 Members and their guests! And no evening would be complete without VIP viewing of IllumiNations, where attendees will be able to mingle and reminisce about the adventures of their day.”
