The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/11/14

So ends the trip report proper. ūüôĀ But I’m not quite finished! As I have in the past, I’ saved our ADRs for a final food review post or two. You can see all the entries in this report¬†here. Okay, onward!¬† Last day. BLARG. My morning largely consisted of packing a final few items. It could’ve been worse – at least I had a solid chunk of the day left to spend in WDW. Poor DeJanea had to leave early in the morning to catch a flight home. Sad stuff. Speaking of flights, we had received our Magical Express...

The Fairest Week In Review: 11/25

JENN:¬†Did you run this week? Tell me you ran this week. Somebody’s got to have run this week. MOON:¬†I did a lot of running! JENN:¬†Whew! MOON:¬†Speed AND distance this week (go me!), ha. JENN:¬†Yay! I haven’t run in two weeks. ūüôĀ My foot is taking its sweet sweet time to heal. MOON: ;-; JENN:¬†And it’s SUCH a terrible time for it, because not running makes me feel like I really really really need to watch what I eat… AND IT’S THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING. AND in addition to Thanksgiving proper, I have an Experimental Recipes Thanksgiving with at my...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/10/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report¬†here. Okay, onward!¬† Our last full day at Walt Disney World was a Studios day, and as Estelle and I were the first people ready in the morning, we took off for the park… OR SO WE THOUGHT. Follow the bouncing bus: We walked to the Art of Animation bus stop...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/09/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report¬†here. Okay, onward!¬† Considering how late I was up the night before, I slept surprisingly poorly. By 10:30AM I threw in the nocturnal towel and got out of bed. I was a little distressed to find my phone hadn’t charged, as it had experienced some minor water damage thanks to the...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Wine & Dine Half After Party Recap

You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!¬† Picking back up where we left off after the Wine & Dine Half Marathon –¬†the after party! Weather update: STILL RAINING. First stop in Epcot: the Odyssey bathrooms. Very exciting, no? I needed that space to change out of my sopping wet pants and socks. But don’t...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Wine & Dine Half Marathon Recap

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report¬†here. Okay, onward!¬† Hit it, Gene! Minus the Volkswagen connection, this should give you a pretty solid idea of what the 2014 Wine & Dine Half Marathon was like. In a word: wet. Not that we were entirely without warning. The weather forecast kept flip-flopping in the days leading up to...

The Fairest Week In Review: 11/18

MOON:¬†How was your week? JENN:¬†HA. The beginning part or the end part? The beginning part was awesome – I was still in Walt Disney World. The second half kinda sucked a little. I missed a step on the stairs and busted up my foot pretty bad. Not only could I not run all week, I was supposed to have a ballet performance on Saturday. I hoped by the time it rolled around I’d be able to at least do one of my dances, but no dice. My friend Lucy was in town to help out with the show, so...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 11/08/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward! I woke up much earlier than expected and, upon discovering that Estelle was headed to the Animal Kingdom for rope drop, I dressed quickly and joined her. We picked up a bus and made it to the gate just as they were letting us in – fifteen...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 11/07/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. Okay, onward! What does one always do the night before leaving for Walt Disney World? If you answered “Sleep poorly,” you are correct! I think I achieved a grand total of four hours of sleep, but I was nevertheless up and ready to roll when my alarm went off at 5AM. I dressed quickly, shoved the last of my...

In Which Jenn Crashes Back Into Reality

So, what’s a good follow up in five glorious days at Walt Disney World and a rainy but ultimately successful half marathon? Why, coming home and promptly falling off the stairs, of course! I don’t know what I did to my foot but I know it NEVER WOULD HAVE HAPPENED if I’d just stayed at Disney. Did I mention I have a ballet performance on Saturday? And that I was going to start Dopey training next week? Sigh. Ah well. I had a friend who’s a PT look at it and while my foot is swollen she said she...
