Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic

Friday, November 11 • Saturday, November 12, 2022 (Friday & Saturday Only)
Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic
The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic is a two day event that takes place from 5:30pm-9:00pm in early November. The event features over 20 culinary selections from the hotel's award-winning restaurants, as well as more than 100 beverage samplings from around the world — all amidst a festive backdrop of live entertainment. The event is open to the general public and the best way to experience the event is with a "causeway ticket" which allows unlimited food and beverage tasting for each night. A separate causeway ticket would be needed for each night of the event.

Returning for 2022 is the "Learn" portion of the event, (which had been on hiatus for the past couple of years), and will feature six unique seminars that will provide guests with a deeper understanding of a particular culinary or beverage subject. The seminars are an extra cost activity, but a "causeway ticket" to the main festival is not needed to attend the seminars. Advanced purchase of seminar tickets is recommended as space is limited.

VIP Champagne Dessert Party and Grand Tasting Event Now Part of the Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic

While the International Food & Wine Festival over at Epcot seems to be slipping deeper and deeper into "Bar Food and Swaggy IPA" territory... the folks over at the Swan and Dolphin have (at least in their marketing copy) planned up something a little more foodie focused. The "later than usual" Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic is taking place on November 11th and 12th this year, and for the first time since the great pandemic, they've brought back their "Seminar Series" of events (that take ...

Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic Seminars

They're back! After a multi-year hiatus, Culinary and Beverage Seminars are once again on the schedule of events at the 2022 Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic. The seminars generally take place on either Friday or Saturday during the Food & Wine Classic event (depending on which seminar you would like to attend), and usually start an hour or two before the main "strolling the causeway" activity begins. The seminars are an "extra cost" activity and space is very limited. In the past, we've seen ... ( read more ... )

The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic Returns for 2021

The Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic is currently entering it's 12th year and I couldn't be happier that we're getting the full-on, outdoor, big party, festival experience that we've come to expect at the "Classic"!  I've been to several of these events over the past decade and have posted about them here on Mealtrip — but (admittedly) under a not so easy to find category. I recently moved the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic into the "Festivals" category and have given it a ... ( read more ... )

Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic Menus for 2021

The Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic takes place on Friday, October 29th and Saturday October 30th, 2021 — and we just received the menu for both nights. The event runs from 5:30pm to 9:00pm this year, and as far as I know (as of 9/9/21) causeway tickets are still available. The "causeway ticket" allows unlimited food and beverage tastings for each night. A separate causeway ticket would be needed for each night of the event. A causeway ticket this year is $165 per person ($185 with tax and ... ( read more ... )

Sunday Bubbles Brunch at the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic

The Sunday Bubble Brunch had been a part of the Swan and Dolphin Food and Wine Classic for around three years (if I'm not mistaken) from 2016 to 2018. The brunch was not scheduled to take place in 2019, and it hasn't appeared on the itinerary since then. I went to the brunch in 2018 (the final year) because it was receiving such amazing reviews. It does take a few days to write an article or a review after visiting a place, and so I was looking forward to posting my Sunday Bubbles Brunch review for the ... ( read more ... )
