    Nice. I like having new booths, and even new choices on old booths! On the other hand I would be crushed and soooooo disappointed if they didn't have the escargot in the p'tite brioche at France! :(

    We originally were not going to be there during F&W, but with the schedule change we will get a chance to do it. Looking forward to the new booths. And yes Tink if they took the Escargot away that would be a real shame.

    If I remember correctly from last year, the full menus should be coming out later this month. Looking forward to it! :yes:

    I'll be there the first weekend. Some of the fam is coming down and want to go again (they were here last year for the last weekend).

    I'm thinking about signing me & the fam up for one of the seminars. I don't remember though if we were planning on going on Sunday (which would be a Dessert seminar) or Monday (not sure if they will even have one).

    I'll keep you updated! :yes:

    You can still eat lightly. :yes: Have a taste of this and a taste of that and call it good. Or simply excuse yourself and meet up with them after lunch! No one could fail to understand that although you are having a good time with them, you prefer to have your time with the booths instead of a restaurant, no?

    Pick a time to get back with them and all should be well. :yes:

    We don't plan any meals on our EPCOT days during F&W. There is plenty of food there to slake our appetites and we have never left hungry. We normally try to fit it in on two to three occasions, though our November trip will be limited.
