The Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin will offer a springtime version of its fall Food & Wine Classic, Sat., April 17, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
The event will feature 12 food booths and more than 50 beverage options. Among the themed stations will be the Beer Garden; Chinatown; Frida’s Kitchen; and the Pig & Poke, a luau experience. And there will be a dessert station with the resort’s executive pastry chef, Laurent Branlard, a world pastry champion.
And of course there will be samples from the many Swan and Dolphin restaurants, including Shula’s Steak House, Todd English’s bluezoo, Kimonos and Il Mulino.
In addition, attendees will get a taste of a signature dish from the soon-to-open Swan Reserve, a boutique hotel expansion to the complex.
This is an outdoor event and distancing protocols will be observed. To wit, only a limited number of tickets will be available. (Fifty remain as of this writing.)
General admission is $125 and unlike last fall’s Classic, the spring festival does not require that you book a room. However, room packages are available starting at $400, which includes two tickets, so I’d jump on that. For just $150 more you can have an extra cocktail or glass of wine and know that you only have to operate the elevator to get to your room.
