    Hi Rick
    I am a dessert person too. The dessert looked excellent. It would really saticity my sweet tooth. The Belgian chocolate was my favorite. I really don’t have a favorite beverage. But if I had to choose, it would be soda, since I can’t drink alcohol yet. See you next week. Oh, and I like the intro too.

    Hey- I remember that day!

    Great new introduction! To answer Amanda’s question, I’m going to say water… because half of the time it’s too hot for anything else 🙂

    Hi Rick and Amanda,
    I thought the new intro was very nice;Andrew is doing such a great job!
    My favorite dessert would be the chocolate too but I love most all desserts!
    My drink would be a nice,cold bottle of water.

    What can I say ANOTHER wonderful episode!!!!
    Rick your enthusiasm always makes the episodes so fun to watch, and Amanda you just seem to be the FRIEND, SISTER (or in my case since I am oldddd lol) daughter we all would like to have~~~ I NEED to try ALL of these goodies when I get there in 2 weeks!!! As for the question about what I like to SIP most–I guess it would be a coke or water. Thanks,again you two for THE GREAT INFO! oh yes, AND A big thanks to Andrew (@travlingharris) for his great camera work!!

    Hey Rick and Amanda, It was great to see you both in the video. I am a dessert person but I am finding that as I get older I can’t eat dessert as much as I would like. I think that for my next trip to WDW I had better plan on staying for the entire Food and Wine Festival so that I can try a little something from each country and not be rushed.

    I really don’t have a favorite drink when I am at the Food and Wine Festival. I usually like to have milk or water to accompany my desserts. I think a flavored water would be good to drink with food. Maybe Disney will offer those kinds of drinks the next time I come to WDW.

    See you next week.

    I’m having a blast watching your videos with Amanda and Rhino Ken today as I leave for the Food & Wine Festival tomorrow morning. As for my favorite drink to enjoy while traveling around World Showcase I don’t really have one specific one. I have heard of different ones and made it a mission on different trips to try them like the Gran Marnie Orange slushie and a peach/champagne drink I had in Italy once but as Rhino Ken says hydrate and we always have our Brita water bottle with us to fill at the fountains and get a free cup of ice from the booths around World Showcase. You can’t enjoy the beauty of World Showcase if your suffering from the heat of central Florida. Can’t wait to see your other episodes. Wish you were down taping while my daughter and I were down.

    Nice surprise with the new intro.
    You guys keep tempting me with the Food and Wine Festival. One of these days I will actually get down there for it. I wish I lived in Florida and could go all the time.
    I usually hydrate on water in WDW. But I would like to try some of those dessert wines and see if I feel like strolling.

    Love the new intro!! Great job Andrew!
    Awesome episode…it’s really making me miss the Food & Wine Festival! Thanks for introducing me to the Pastel de Nata from Portugal. That is a very good dessert.
    As Amanda knows, my favorite beverage to sip around World Showcase is a mango margarita from Mexico, followed closely by a Grey Goose slush from France!

    Love the new intro very cool. I’m not much on deserts or sweets they kinda make my head spin, too much sugar. All looked good though. Favorite beverage to sip and stroll, well I really hadn’t done much of that, guess I will have to add that to my list. Thanks for sharing.
