The Fantastic Food & Wine Classic, at Disney’s Swan & Dolphin, culminated with an evening of fun for everyone who attended.  In its ninth year, this popular event mixes food and wine seminars, beer, wine, small-plated foods, event merchandise and live entertainment that draws guests by the masses.  Journey with us through this photo tour review of all the incredible offerings.

To begin our evening, we attended a Wine Blending Class.  This informative experience taught us how to pair cheese with wine.  We also learned how to blend wine to our specific taste preferences.

Next, we toured the Beer Garden.  We sampled a variety of beers and some interesting foods in this circular garden space.

Next up, we sampled wines from around the world.  With more than 60 wineries participating, and 11 wine regions represented, there was plenty to choose from.

Next, we moved on to the food offerings.  We started with the Beer Garden options and moved onto Phins Chicken Wings.  One of our best bites was definitely the Wings from Phins.


we explored the main Causeway.  Food offerings from the Swan & Dolphin restaurants had incredible representation.  We were particularly fond of the Bluezoo Striped Bass and the Garden Grove Sea Scallops.


Additionally, we decided to have a bit of fun in the Carnival Corner.  We sampled some of the offerings and might have had at least 2 Funfetti Fried Oreos.  Trying our luck at the Shooting Gallery, the Bucket Toss and the Wine Bottle Ring Toss carnival games caused us to realize we need more practice with the mastery of these games!

After failing miserably at Wine Bottle Ring Toss, we meandered over to Chinatown.  We loved both the Crispy Duck and the Dumplings on offer here.

Next up, we explored The Pig and the Poke.

Hence, Dessert!

Furthermore, the merchandise tent had many event-specific items to choose from.

Consequently, we concluded our evening with live music and dancing.

The Fantastic Food & Wine Classic makes for a wonderful weekend with family and friends.  Whether you are celebrating a milestone, or are just looking for a fun evening out, this event is one that we highly recommend.  The Swan & Dolphin Resort sponsors this event the last weekend in October.  You can choose one evening, or two.  The event concludes on Sunday with The Bubbles Brunch.  Time to start planning your visit for next year!
