In Which Jenn Gets The runDisney Rug Pulled Out From Under Her

Hope springs eternal but reality kills it dead – the runDisney Star Wars Rival Run race weekend is no more. I think we can all agree that we saw it coming. Obviously I’m pretty darned sad about it. I mean, of COURSE I can see the necessity and of COURSE I recognize that as an ostensibly healthy person who already works from home I’m very very lucky right now.

In Which Jenn Dispenses Parkless Disney Advice

Disney’s The Dress Shop, aka A Store Full Of Things I Want. If you know me, you know I’m all about Disney resorts. No, seriously, if you know me at all, you know. Case in point: a couple weeks ago a coworker of mine emailed me; she said she was going to be in Orlando for a single afternoon with her family and did I have any recommendations regarding what they could do in Walt Disney World without buying a park ticket?
