Seems like there is a ton of Figment Merch this year. Is that pretty common every F&WF?
Yeah, they have no problem selling you Figment merch.
I have noticed something about the Figment Merch...
The artwork has a nod to Schoolhouse Rock...Which is also owned by Disney.
I was just going to say he looks a little too cartoony to me.
Now that growlers are legal in Florida, I'm loving the growler beer container.
I'm confused... I thought the logo for this years F&W had Remy on it...
Love the 'tour' shirt.
Suits us, we're there from 10/23!
Does anyone know for certain if there will be a chase lounge or a chase viewing area of illuminations at Epcot this year during food & wine festival 2017. I called up the first time and was told that there are no chase lounges or viewing area this year & saw this posted on another blog. However, I called up again and this time was told that the Chase Lounges in Epcot are permanent, one near Figment of the Imagination and another in the American Pavilion and was also told I would be able to watch Illuminations by the Gondolas near the Italy Pavilion. I cannot find a definite answer or information on this for 2017. Thank you!
Love the Figment merchandise this year. Cannot believe they misspelled "Theatre" on the "Eat to the Beat" shirt. It's always been the "America Gardens Theatre." Oh, well.
Nope this festival is not about the almighty alcodollar...
Only when something is going away, Bye Figment! we hardly knew ye!
Do you have to buy a beer to have access to this merchandise?
I haven't found anything official about this year, but rumors are Chase is no longer a F&W Festival sponsor. Also, I believe the lounge in the American Adventure pavilion is the rumored WDW Club 33 lounge. The lounge in the Imagination pavilion is for DVC.
No. My point is that they weren't selling a growler container while 32 oz growlers were illegal in Florida. The Florida Legislature recently made growler sales legal.
Nothing stops them from using a different location (the first year was in Wonders of Life) but the lack of Chase as a sponsor would likely mean no lounge.
I was responding to and quoted @ford91exploder temperance mini-rant. Did my post inadvertently quote you? The forum does that sometimes weirdly.
But on that topic...really....growlers were illegal? And 64 ouncers are still devil jugs?
States have some of the strangest alcohol laws.
Oh sorry. Yeah. Was a weird law. Craft breweries have grown in Florida like anywhere else. The Legislature finally came to their senses.
I was in Georgia this year and breweries can't sell directly to consumers unless they are a restaurant or offer tours. That was really cumbersome. You had to show up for a $1 tour at a certain time to be able to buy a pint from the brewery. It was like a speakeasy.
Yep I live in Atlanta and its very frustrating but that will change come September when a new law goes into effect.
