    I’m hungry. Great video. I guess maybe 35,000 bottles seems like a lot but you have to take into consideration the number of days this event goes on. YUMMY……


  2. Kristine Koelzer says:

    I think my daughter and I have decided to hit the Food & Wine Festival for a long weekend next year so it was very nice seeing this episode and I look forward to the rest of the episodes yet to come. I am going to guess 57,000 bottles of wine used last year.
    Good luck in your 5K Rick


  3. Linda Miller says:

    Another great episode — thanks, Rick and Ken!! The fisherman’s pie looked yummy!
    I thought I read somewhere that they use about 33,000 bottles of wine annually at the Food & Wine Festival, but I could be way off.
    Hope the 5K went well!
    Looking forward to more eating around the world!!

    Great video, I’m not a wine drinker but man I can eat, and I would love to join a Travel with Rick fan Food and Wine Festival throw down, gather up the whole gang, Amanda, Ken, fun times!!!! A little short notice but 2011 is doable! I guess 43,254 bottles of wine? Good luck in your 5K, remember, what doesn’t kill ya will make ya stronger! Go get’m, with a smile on your face!


  5. 33,000 bottles of wine and champagne along with 750,000 beer cups & 338,000 wine glasses. Good show Rick as always!


  6. john broadwater says:

    thanks for a great show. the number of bottles of wine used was about67,000. it would be a great trip to have you and ken hold a touring with rick and ken trip. thank again see you next show.


  7. Jeanne Cundiff says:

    Everything looks so good. Great job on running the 5K! I agree about the 33,000. I think I read it somewhere on Mousepanet. Another great video!


  8. Paul Sulecki says:

    As usual another excellent episode Rick. I’m going to guess 32,000 bottles. How about a Food and Wine tour in the beginning of November. I will be in WDW the first the end of Oct. thru the first week of Nov. I would definitely like to hang out and tour the world.


  9. Teresa M says:

    Great episode. We enjoyed your tour with Ken so much last year my husband and I are going to be there October 7 through 11.
    Our guess is 27,000 bottles.
    Look forward to future episodes and maybe we’ll see you when we are there.


  10. Robert Nordmark says:

    Hey Rick and Ken, Another great video! You guys looked like you were enjoying the food, wine, and each others company. The food looks great! I can’t wait to visit WDW again and attend the Food and Wine Festival. As to how many bottle of wine were served last year–39,000. That is just a guess. Now I have a question for you: If you are eating on the Disney Dining Plan can you use that to buy food from the kiosks or can you only use the DDP at the established restraunts?

    See you next week.



  11. Nicklas Yeager says:

    Great Video. Some of that food looked good. The only thing is, I am not 21 yet, so I can’t sample the wine. I think 40,000 bottles were served last year. See you next week.


  12. Peggy Hickey says:

    Normally I wouldn’t think I would enjoy watching two guys eat and drink their way around Epcot, but Rick and Ken make it fun. I especialy like how “relaxed” the two of you are at the end of the circuit.
    I like to think I can take some credit for the Food and wine Festival since back in the early 90s I was in a focus group at Epcot and I suggested kiosks to sample the foods of the nations without the commitment of ordering from the restaurants. I was probably not the only one to suggest it, but I am happy they took my suggestion and people are really enjoying it. Maybe one of these years I will actually get to GO to the Food and Wine Festival.
    I can only make a wild guess at how many bottles of wine went into last years event. I think it’s probably a lot, so I’ll say 9999… bottles of spirits…room for one more. 🙂


  13. Peggy Hickey says:

    Make that 99,999.


  14. Linda (TINK) Maxey says:

    Rick, you and Ken had me laughing right from the start,,you two make a great team (second to you and AMANDA~~) looks like you enjoyed EVERYTHING!!!
    Can’t wait to get there and try it all..thanks again for ANOTHER great week in RICKS WORLD (LOL)~~~~~ good going on your 5k!!!

    ºoº EARS TO YOU ºoº
