    Hey Rick,
    To answer Amanda’s question I love the 1st Harry Potter film cause that one is the best and I can’t answer your question cause I have not tried butter beer but have tried the pumpkin juice before which was delicious

    Good morning Rick!
    I loved the music that was being played at Universal. I felt like you were right there in Hogswort. Universal is on my list of places to go; I really want to see the Harry Potter section and taste a Butterbeer. We love every Harry Potter movie but I think our favorite was Half Blood Prince. Didn’t like that Dumbledor dies in it though Thank you so much for printing the recipe! we will try and make Butterbeer this weekend. I am thrilled you are going to Paris Disney. We were in Paris a couple of years ago and the closest I got was the Disney Store in Downtown Paris. I was so sad that I was that close and couldn’t go. Have a wonderful time and I can’t wait to see the videos!
    A demain ( See you later in French)

    Hey Rick & Amanda…thanks for another great video!

    I think my favorite Harry Potter movie is the third…Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I love when Harry discovers that, although he’s lost his parents, he still has his godfather who obviously loves him very much.

    I’ve only had the frozen butterbeer, so I can’t compare the frozen to the non-frozen, but I can say that I loved it! I’ve also tried the pumpkin juice, but I think I like the butterbeer better.

    Enjoy Disneyland Paris and Ireland! I’ve been to Ireland before…I hope you love it as much as I did!

Thanks Again!!!


  7. Peggy Hickey says:

    I love the peek into Harry Potter’s World in Universal. Thanks for that. I haven’t been there yet, so I haven’t tried the Butterbeer. I will when I get there.
    My favorite Harry Potter movies was the first one. It was all new and fresh and so true to the book.
    My comment was late last week so I guess you didn’t see that I asked if you had plans to go to Disney Paris, and I was happily surprised to hear you are on your way. I can’t wait to see video of that trip.
    Hopefully Disney Seas is in the planning for the future too.


  8. Guy Levacque says:

    Might need to try the butterbeer soon.


  9. Lizzie says:

    I think my favorite is the last one. I like them all tho’, although the first two are kind of hard to get through now just cuz they’re so much for kids, so tame, compared to the later ones.


  10. I can’t wait to taste the beerbutter….soon. My fav Harry Potter is Deathly Hallows part 1. I liked the wedding.


  11. Gary Watson says:

    Hi Rick,
    great video on HP world, not been to Florida for a few years now so not actually been to try out the butterbeer – maybe next year.

    Whilst I live in the UK never actually been to Disneyland Paris (but been to WDW 5 times, including our honeymoon in 1983)

    For the Harry Potter films they are all good, quite like seeing the first one again and see how cute all the actors were 🙂



  12. John Broadwater says:

    great show. made some butter beer from the recipe and it was wonderful. the movie I like the best was The Deathly Hallows Part 1 and part 2. enjoy your trip to Disneyland Paris an all the new things that are there. But most of all enjoy your time in Ireland and make sure you kiss the blarney stone while your there. have a great trip. see you when get back.


  13. Brother Joseph Rock says:

    Technically I do not have any likeness in my heart for anything that is related to witchcraft. I also do not drink alcohol. Sorry.


  14. Bob Nordmark says:

    Hey Rick,

    That Butter Beer looks pretty good. I sure would like to try it. I liked all of the Harry Potter films but my favorite is Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone.

    I think it is great that you and John are going to Disneyland Paris and Ireland. I hope you have a great trip. I also hope that you bring back a lot of prizes from Disneyland Paris. I would like get something from Disneyland Paris for a prize.

    See you next week.



  15. Blake Schmidt says:

    Hi Rick

    That Butter Beer looks great. I have never been a Potter fan so I have no Favorite movie. I cant wait for the Disney Paris episode.



  16. chris j says:

    never saw any of the harry potter movies, but have been to universal and I only had the frozen butterbeer and it was good. could not get on any of the rides there it was a long wait and did not have time to wait


  17. Tony says:

    Rick and gang,

    I dont keep any stats on Universal but if someone has some great numbers they want to share I will be glad to host them.


  18. Nick Yeager says:

    Hey Rick,
    I am sorry, I don’t want to think about Food and Wine right now. Its Summer and I hate cold weather here in Central Pennsylvania. I would try the butter beer in Harry Potter land in Universal. I only saw 1 Harry Potter movie and I love it: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Have a good week.

    P.S Does butter beer have alcohol in it?


  19. Penny Serrato says:

    Butter beer sounds ok I would definitely try it. I am so excited about getting to see Disney Paris and am very jealous that you guys are going to Ireland (it’s on my bucket list)Can’t wait. TFS
