The pandemic forced the cancelation of the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort’s annual Food & Wine Classic, but the resort has just announced a replacement food and drink series coming Saturday nights this fall.
Beginning Sept. 19, Sip, Savor & Stay Saturdays: A New Twist on the Food & Wine Classic Experience will be held Saturday evenings through Oct. 24. Each Saturday will offer a different culinary event as part of an overnight package. One-night packages start at $295 for all Saturdays except Oct. 17, which starts at $395 for a one-night package. Each package includes an overnight stay at the Walt Disney World Swan and two tickets to the event. Here’s a look at the event line-up:
Sept. 19: Bubble Lounge (5:30pm to 7:30pm) – Champagne and sparkling wines paired with small bites
Sept. 26: Beer Garden (5:30pm to 7:30pm) – Ales, lagers, and pilsners served with pub favorites
Oct. 3: Italian Wine & Bites (5:30pm to 7:30pm) – A showcase of Italian wine varietals and foods
Oct. 10: Smokin’ D’s Bourbon, Beer, & BBQ (5:30pm to 7:30pm) – BBQ classics paired with bourbon and beer samplings
Oct. 17: Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic: Limited Edition (5:30pm to 8pm) – This VIP event comes with the higher $395/package price tag and offers favorites from the annual Food & Wine Classic in a more intimate setting.
Oct. 24: Oktoberfest Biergarten (5:30pm to 7:30pm) – Oktoberfest-inspired, German-themed music, small bites and, of course, beers
Packages can be booked by calling 888-828-8850 and will be limited to 100 guests, with the exception of the Food & Wine Classic, which will be open to 200 guests in a larger space. All events will be held indoors.
