Note: None of the beverage seminars stood out for anything in particular – we’re thinking about skipping these as a general rule in the future.

Note: For the last 3 years, the Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic was a standout regarding food; much better showcasing of Chefs’ and food quality than the tasting booths around World Showcase. And, we look forward to the instructional courses they offer (here & here).
