The popular Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic is returning Nov. 11-12, 2022, and with it, two premium events: an all-new VIP Champagne & Dessert Party and the return of the Master Sommelier-led Grand Tasting.
Both premium events will be held at The Vue, the new 15th floor private event space at the Swan Reserve, with spectacular views of Walt Disney World Resort.
VIP Champagne & Dessert Party
For the first time in the event’s history, a VIP champagne and dessert reception will allow guests to enjoy champagnes and sparkling wines paired with the hotel’s award-winning desserts, all while watching Walt Disney World’s nighttime spectaculars.
Curated by the resort’s executive pastry chef and certified sommeliers, menu highlights include The Dessert of Champions (a pâte à choux doughnut with nitro milk-chocolate hazelnut ice cream, milk chocolate chunks, homemade peach marshmallows, hazelnut praline, chocolate pop rocks, and vanilla bean peach compote) and The Tropical Macaroon (a passion fruit macaroon dipped in Yuzu chocolate, mango crisps, and white chocolate pearls).
The VIP Champagne & Dessert Party will take place from 8:30-10 p.m. on Nov. 12, 2022. Tickets are $150 per person and include access to The Vue with unlimited dessert and champagne tastings.
The Grand Tasting
The exclusive, limited-space Grand Tasting returns for the first time since 2019, featuring a champagne reception and three flights of elite wines curated by Master Sommelier John Blazon – the former Wine Director for Walt Disney World Resort – who will share details about the presented wines and champagnes. The event will also feature a custom chef’s table menu from Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Executive Chef Dan Herman, who leads the resort’s award-winning culinary team and oversees all 22 world-class restaurants and lounges on the property.
Highlighted by incredible views of all four Walt Disney World theme parks, the Grand Tasting event will take place from 2-5 p.m. on Nov. 12, 2022. Tickets are $395 per person.
The outdoor Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic event takes place Nov. 11-12, 2022, from 5:30-9 p.m. and offers unlimited tastings of culinary and beverage selections from the hotel’s award-winning restaurants. The VIP Champagne & Dessert Party and The Grand Tasting require separate tickets, and space is limited.
