I have a hard time getting over the initial fear. In the last month or so I have tried a couple different coasters at Walt Disney World. Overcoming Big Thunder Mountain was a big step for me. It was a step though I needed to take....more

Hops and Barley Market at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival isn't necessarily a must stop for me. Having spent 10 years living in Maine, I've had some darn good lobster, and whenever I've ordered it during F&W, I've mostly been bummed by what I received.

One of Matt's festival favorites, the Pumpkin Mousse, has been replaced by Craisin Bread Pudding. This was definitely a dish that grabbed my attention a bit more, mainly because I'm not into the whole pumpkin-flavored everything during this time of year....more
