    My first trip was in ’82 just after EPCOT opened. The first ride that I recall our family going on was 20,000 Leagues at MK. But then one I thought was the coolest was Spaceship Earth!

    Next year Rick you have to set up a Meet at Food & Wine with you, Amanda, and Ken for us Followers to come to and enjoy a day or two with some F&W experts!

    Sweet first to comment. Hey Rick. Happy New Year.
    Some of that dessert looked to sweet, but great video. My first Disney attraction was the Rock n Rollercoaster at the, then MGM Studios. My first ride took place in 2003. I didn’t like it at first. I scared me. The elements that scared me was the inversions and the launch. Now it is one on my favorite attractions at Disney. See you next week.

    Great video Rick and Amanda!
    I Love the desserts at F&W festival. I have had the Godiva Chocolate iced coffee and it is the BEST! The first attraction I experianced was at EPCOT. My wife (then my girlfriend) was in Orlando for a convention so I tagged along. The first park we went to was EPCOT and we walked right onto Spaceship Earth. I believe Walter Cronkite was the narrater at the time and I was HOOKED on Disney after that. I had never experinced an omnimover ride and/or audio-animatronics that complicated before and I was absolutely blown away. We havn’t missed that attraction on any of our subsequent trips yet.
    Thanks again for another great video.

    Hi Rick, My first ride was the monorail, I remember coming here in Oct. 71, and when we took the monorail trip my three siblings and I made my parents ride it around three times. Take care

    Hi, Rick and Amanda!! The desserts looked yummy!

    I never experienced Walt Disney World as a child, but was fortunate enough to attend a Red Cross Health & Safety Conference at Coronado Springs in March, 2001. It was love at first sight and I’ve been back almost every year since. The very first park we went to was Epcot and when I saw Spaceship Earth, I was hooked. It continues to be the first thing I must see on my trips to Disney and the very last ride we ride on our last night in the parks.

    Thanks again, for another great video!! See you next week!

    Hi Rick and Amanda,

    Dessert is my weakness and it all looked great. Thinking about the first ride that I rode on at WDW brings back a lot of wonderful memeories. My first trip to WDW was in 2004. The first park I went to was The Animal Kingdom and the first ride I rode on was Kilimanjaro Safaris. That trip was life changing for me. I can’t wait to go back to Disney World.

    Thanks so much Rick and Amanda! The desserts looked awesome, that would be my wife’s favorite part of the Food and Wine Festival whereas mine would be the filet mignons and seared tuna, stuff like that! My first ride at WDW was The Pirates of the Caribbean, I was about 5, I’ve loved it ever since! Thanks again for blessing us with your love of the most magical places on Earth, keep smilin’ my friends!

    I am not a huge desert fan, but I am a fan of anything coffee, so that Godiva Chocolate Coffee looked incredible. Such a fun video – makes me feel like I am there!
    My first ride was Spaceship Earth! It was in 1993, so I was in my 30’s (ok – late 30’s)and I fell in love with Walt Disney World! I would still like to walk through Spaceship Earth sometime to see how it all works in that huge “golf-ball”. This is still my Must-Do ride regardless of who is with me!

    Can’t wait till next week – have a Magical day!

    Amanda, think cheesecake when compairing canollis and cheese. 🙂 I believe it’s ricotta cheese in the canolli. That one looks great to me!
    And for the question…I think the very first attraction I experienced in WDW was the Energy Pavillion at Epcot back in ’91. My party was lightheaded from travel and it was a nice easy ride to handle first. Although I really was tempted to gab a few winks while riding, I overcame that to see the dinosaurs.
