The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts have announced the return of their Food & Wine Classic event – but for the first time ever, it will be taking place in the spring!
The Swan and Dolphin Spring Food & Wine Classic will take place on Saturday, April 17 as a one-night, limited-ticket event with unlimited food and beverage tastings, plus live music.
The event will offer culinary selections from the hotel’s restaurants as well as wine samplings from around the world and a selection of other beverages, all set against a festival backdrop. Since this will be a limited-ticket event, guests will be able to stay socially distant throughout the resort’s outdoor spaces.
The Spring Food & Wine Festival, which runs from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m., will feature several themed stations including the Beer Garden, Chinatown, and the luau-inspired The Pig & Poke. There will be 12 stations in total, including one with dessert from executive pastry chef and world pastry champion Laurent Branlard.
Event-only tickets can be purchased online for $125 per person, and room packages start at $400 and include event access for two adults, as the event is limited to those age 21 and older.
Health and safety protocols will be in place for the event, which include:
- Temperature checks for all guests
- Plexiglass walls for all food service areas
- All cast members wearing personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Socially-distanced stations
- Touchless menus and clearly-marked social distancing signage
Face coverings are required for all guests at all times, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Guests may remove their masks while actively eating or drinking, but must remain stationary and maintain physical distancing while doing so.
The Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic will return this fall on Oct. 29-30, with more details to come later. For more information, and to purchase tickets to the spring event, visit FoodAndWineClassic.com.
