  • The WDW site says this year the dining package doesn’t include an appetizer, but does include an alcoholic beverage. Can you confirm that? Thanks.

    • Hi Bob, thanks for catching this. We knew that the Fantasmic! packages had changed to substitute the possibility of an alcoholic drink for the appetizer, but I forgot to confirm whether that change was on these packages too when writing the article. (The EPCOT Fireworks Dining Packages didn’t change).

      I’ve confirmed that the WDW site is correct and updated the article. Thanks again!

  • WDW site says Food and Wine starts on Aug 29 per their site, your article states Aug 9. Can you confirm which start date is correct? Thanks!

    • Thank you for finding my typo. 🙂 Fixed.
