I go a few times each year since I live in Florida, so I noticed some changes for this year. The wine seminars that happen 3 or 4 times a day were free but this year are $8 each. I personally like this change because the last 2 years I couldn't get in any because too many people just camp out all day at the Festival Center and take all the seats since they were free. The Party for the Senses on Saturday nights now, in addition to the $140 tickets, have added a section where you are guaranteed a seat and extra stuff for $75 more. The biggest complaint each year was that there were always more people than seats and the starts were mad rushes to get a table with seats before they were all gone. To solve this problem, rather than just bringing a bunch more chairs, they decided that charging extra is better.
