Another awesome food episode!I always tend to watch the episodes a little more closely when it involves food.:-) I am a foodie,what can I say?The food that you and John tried looked really tasty!Looked like you two really enjoyed the food as well,but I don’t think John liked the potato pancake very much.I love the Dole whip but I’m not really a rum fan,but I would still like to try it.I would like to see them bring over a Mickey Waffle and add some fried chicken to it.Chicken and waffles are so good together.I am so much looking forward to episode 200.I will be online watching the whole thing.I also am looking forward to next weeks episode.Take care guys!
Great Video. I was waiting on your video to hear your opinion on Dole whip w/rum. Cinderella’s Castle had a mint crepe back in the late 80’s, I wish they would bring that back and to one of the festivals.
What classic Disney treat could be re-imagined? How about Tonga Toast, but as a Tonga Toast sandwich, w/each piece of Tonga Toast serving as the bread, and the ham it can come with as the meat inside…and you could put it at the Pineapple Promenade by sticking a skewer through it w/a small piece of pineapple! 🙂
Great Show all the food look yummy. I really don’t know of anything at all. I always enjoy the shows and thing that you bring us. I wish I was able to have a job like yours. thanks for everything see you next week.
What I think they should bring to the festival/s are ice cream cakes shaped like Cinderella’s Castle (Sleeping Beauty’s Castle if it is Disneyland Resort). Short comment, but that is all I can think of right now.
Dole whip sounds great and I am from SRQ so nice to hear the Siesta Key (#1 Beach in the USA) Rum mentions.
This was my first video of yours to watch! I really enjoyed it and felt as though I was back in Epcot. We did not try any exotic dishes when we were there last. Your video helps me know which foods we need to try there next. Thank you!
Thank you Rick and John for another great video! You gave me great ideas of what to try when we get to EPCOT. I am definitely trying the Dole Whip with rum now! I haven’t been to Disney enough to even know what to bring back but Disney seems to always come up with old and new wonderful ideas. We will definitely catch up to you in April! We are so excited to meet you.
Thank you for the Disney Fix!
What fun wuth you and John!! Humm I think if they could bring in some sort of Mickey rice Krispie squares, it would be a big hit for the children!! But I still just love the beauty of the flowers!!! Can I just “click my heals like Dorothy in OZ,and be there with you now???????? I’d love it!!
Hey Rick and John,
Thanks for the great food, I mean video. It looked like you guys had some really tasty dishes. As for some reimagined Disney food–I can’t think of any. But, I do have a wish for new non alcoholic drinks at Disney Parks–like fruit juices and fruit juice combinations and flavored water drinks.
Years ago when I traveled through Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras I had a drink called a “Liquado”–it was a blended drink of cantalope, milk, and ice. It was very refreshing. I also had a watermelon drink called “Sandia”. At Anderson’s a restaurant in the Zona Rosa of Mexico City they brought us a red punch like drink. I have no idea what was in it but it was so good and refreshing. And last but not least, the family I lived with in Honduras served me fresh squeezed pineapple and mango juice every morning. It was wonderful!
See you next week.
P.S. Rick, tell your new camera man to come around in front of the camera so that we can see what he looks like.
Love the food episodes! What a way to make the Flower and Garden Festival so much better! I loved all the food y’all showed today, and I agree about skipping the France booth! I’m with Jacob, waffle and fried chicken would be off the hook! I’m so looking forward to the live event. My bride and I are running a half marathon in Pensacola on Sunday, I gotta put a little pep in her step so we can make the drive back to Mississippi in time to catch the epic show! Thanks again my friends, y’all keep those smiles on!
Ok these past two videos are making me hungry! I think they should bring the Mickey waffles over and really jazz them up by making them chocolate with chocolate chips and powdered sugar. There is a lot that can be done to a waffle! 2 more episodes to go!
I would love to go to Epcot and try some of that food. I am a picky eater, if it looks appetizing I will try it. The Dole Whip with rum looked good. I will try it if they have it when I go in July. We have 103 days to go. Keep them coming. Have a good week.
P.S. I am using my Aulani bag I won back in January. I am an ride operator at Hersheypark, so I use it to carry my things. See you next week.
Just watched this video from my room at the boardwalk! Now heading to Epcot to try everything you said to try! Especially the whip with rum! Wasn’t going to try that but after watching you guys–I gotta get me some! Let you know soon my opinion! Thx. Steven
Back in the room at the Boardwalk now. Stuffed! Tried several dishes—liked some, loved some. Shrimp and grits so good my wife had to get 2nds! So awesome! Dole whip with rum is a winner. You guys weren’t kidding! Gonna get more tomorrow! Tomato wine, not so good. Ha! Would love to hang out with you guys and do beer tastings around the promenade! Sounds fun! Gotta get you on some craft beer Rick! Thx for what you do—I’ve said it before, I’m sure it’s rough job. Take care. Steven
Great episode the food looked yummy. I am excited about the 100th episode lot’s of wonderful guests and of course my favorite….. Dole Whip looked really tasty I think it should be at the other parks or at least at Epcot.
Not really sure what other items they should make available.
See ya Sunday
This episode got us really excited for our trip in May. The food at Disney is always good and on each trip we make a point of trying a new restaurant. We enjoy going to the French Quarter in the morning for the beignets. I would like to see them offered in the parks. Maybe a different spin would be a chocolate beignet. Looking forward to the 200th episode. Congratulations!!!
