For those Disney Vacation Club members with a fondness for the quaint and relaxed charm of Olivia’s Cafe at Disney’s Old Key West Resort, an upcoming weekly wine-tasting will bring you a bit closer to the eatery’s namesake and inspiration — Olivia Farnsworth.
This event will take place every Sunday (excluding holidays) starting on April 15th from 3-4 pm at Olivia’s Cafe, with a maximum capacity of 20 members (21-years-old and over, of course). The folks at Walt Disney Imagineering were recently quoted by the Disney Parks Blog, giving insight into the legendary character that the wine-tasting is centered around.
“Olivia Farnsworth is 60 going on 20. She arrived in Conch Flats [the setting of Disney’s Old Key West Resort] longer ago than you’ll get her to talk about … moved into a small cottage along Turtle Krawl, turned on her stove and changed everything around here for the ‘batter.’ Upwind from downtown, Olivia’s cooking was a hard secret to keep. Dinner traffic boomed. Soon, she began doubling recipes, then double-doubling, then triple-doubling until the math got ugly. She pulled up more chairs, added more tables and sat people on the porch until the floor plan got all cattywhumpus. Finally, to the town’s great relief, Olivia made it official, cinched up her apron and hung out her shingle.”
DVC members looking to enjoy the selection of wines with an accompaniment of “bite-sized foods” will have to shell out $30 per person (including tax and gratuity). For reservations and details contact member services.
