    Thanks Rick and Ken for another visit to the Food and Wine Festival. We had a great time in October visiting the kiosks.

    As far as a favorite country, it would have to be England. We loved our visit to London and the English Countryside. Stonehenge was just awesome!

    Thanks again for another great video!!

    Ken you are great fun to watch paired with Rick you guys make me laugh and I enjoyed seeing the food and listening to the descriptions of the wine. I like wine but don’t know much about it. I do however have 2 bottles that I want to bring with me when we go to WDW next week and wondered if you could tell me the best way to get it there in one piece. We have to put it in the checked baggage and we are kind of hesitant about it.
    My favorite state to go to is Colorado. I love it. My mom was born and raised there my parents met and were married there and a lot of my family on my mom’s side are there. Thanks again guys it was great and Ken please come back soon.

    Another excellent episode. You and Ken have great chemistry. It was nice to watch and remember our own visit to F&W this year.

    Penny, putting wine in checked luggage is always a risk. Luggage get bounced around a lot and I’ve read too many stories of people getting their luggage off the carousel and finding it soaked with wine. If you can’t put the wine in some kind of reinforced container sealed in a bag, I wouldn’t check it in your luggage.

    Are these special bottles of wine? If not you could arrange for similar or the same wine to be delivered to you via one of the grocery services.

    I love visiting Canada. Although I haven’t seen a great deal of it, I think the areas I’ve seen are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for another great episode, Rick.


  6. John Broadwater says:

    When I was in the service the country I would like to go back to would be Thailand. It was so beautiful and easy to get around Bangkok. Great show and thanks.

    Thank you for an interesting video. One of my former kindergarten parents recently opened up his own winery so now with your input I know a little more about wines so I can have a nice conversation about wines with this parent.

    The only country I have traveled to was the Netherlands(Amsterdam) and I never ever thought I would get across the ocean! I loved this country and was so surprised to see so many bikes! They have sidewalk paths just for bikes so you had to be careful or you just might get run down. They even use their cell phone while on bikes! The Dutch people love their dogs too and you will see dogs in the stores and I even saw a man get into a taxi with his dog. We visited a wooden shoe factory and now they make these shoes on a machine but they make all sorts of different wooden shoes; they even have wooden shoe skates! You won’t see people in Amsterdam wearing wooden shoes but the farmers do wear them out in the pasture. We did see a few windmills but not as many as I thought I might see. The Dutch people do have a nice custom: if they visit someone they bring along a bouquet of flowers so you see flower booths on almost every street corner.

    Rick, I have to tell you that while at a cheese plant I saw a poster of Donald Duck and Daisy in traditional Dutch costumes. That was the only Disney
    item I saw in that country.

    If I got brave and went across the ocean again I would love to visit Italy to see the beautiful art that is there.

    Have a happy day!

    I haven’t been outside the US and my favorite state to visit still has to be Florida. I’d love to see more, but, well…
    I love the idea of doing the Food and Wine Festival on a budget next time. I’m looking forward to seeing how you guys fare with that.


  9. Robert Nordmark says:

    I like visiting Victoria, British Columbia and Mexico/Central America. I have never been to Europe. If my luck holds out I will be going to Paris France and Disneyland Paris within six months.

    It was a great video Rick and Ken. I’m not a wine drinker but the food sure looked good. I hope I can attend the food and wine festival next year. It is also a good time to see Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

    Thanks to you both.



  10. Oh, I feel so ashamed! I haven’t been outside of the US! But my favorite place to visit so far is between Key West, Florida and Wisconsin and Kings Island, Ohio.

    LOVED the vid! I wish I had been there! The food looked amazing and so did the wine! Epcot was always my favorite part of Disney, since I’m a Geography/History major. And yes, you are right about the live entertainment. In every area of Disney we visited, we saw some form of live entertainment. It was fabulous! Keep it up!


  11. Hello Fellas! Thanks for reviving the Food and wine Festival for me one final time.

    Rick…it was I that said the Salmon was worth getting just for the lentil salad =)It was good wasn’t it. In years past they have had an arugula salad with the salmon. This was the 1st year that they did the lentil salad and I hope they bring it back for the 15th year!

    My favorite place on earth is the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia.


  12. Debbie Bolen says:

    Hi Guys! Loved the video – pairing the wine and food was great! Wish I could have made the Food & Wine this year – possibly next year.

    My favorite country to visit was Denmark! Loved the country and the people.

    Keep up the great work – see you next week.


  13. Kevin Nelson says:

    Thanks so much Rick and Rhino Ken, I’ve got to get down there for the Food and Wine Festival again, it’s been to long! My favorite state to visit is Colorado, I grew up skiing there and I can’t wait to introduce my boys to the mountains! Great work guys, I can’t wait for next, until then, keep smiling!


  14. Sue M. says:

    Thanks for showing us around the F&W festival! Would love to go during that time someday, but can’t get off work then! Always wondered about it, so now thru you I’ve seen it!
    I live in Canada, so my fav. country is the U.S. aside from Orlando, I love to visit Key West, the Gulf Coast, and Hawaii!
    Also have enjoyed visiting France, but it was so long ago! And Mexico, Costa Rica, well, anywhere I’ve visited I’ve loved!
