Presentations include Dr. Lori, an appraiser on Discovery Channel’s “Auction Kings”; and a Chef Cooking Series with regional chefs giving demonstrations on the Viking Cooking Stage.

The Outdoor Living and Wine Garden, besides being a display of the latest trends for outdoor spaces, will offer visitors a respite and a sip in a special wine-tasting area.

Radio Disney will keep the kids amused with live entertainment, mini-golf and craft activities, and a chance to win Justin Beiber concert tickets.
