The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/8

Time for another trip report! I’ll be covering my 2022 WDW Marathon Weekend trip. Find all the posts in this report here. Onward! The only thing that is certain is uncertainty. I think I have a handle on the New WDW and bam! It all changes again. For example, after my last trip I thought Genie+ for Hollywood Studios would be an absolute must, so Erika and I agreed to buy it for this day. Turns out if you’re there for Early Entry you might not need it? But I’m getting ahead of myself. I hopped out of bed...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/10

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. And it’s another crack o’ dawn aka 7am wakeup call to start the morning! This time I was after one of those elusive Rise of the Resistance Individual Lightning Lane spots again. Which actually seem almost weirdly easy to get? I mean, I’m sure spots grow scarce the longer you wait, but it’s nothing like the crazy virtual queue days of old where milliseconds counted. That’s something anyway. I snuck in a quick shower before dragging Pat out of bed, and we headed over to the Skyliner. We stopped...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/7

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Post-race, I did what I think we all do: immediately hopped in the shower. Thank God the showers at Caribbean Beach get good and hot, because I could barely feel my hands! GLOVES next time, Jenn. Throwaway race gloves. C’mon, you know better than that. Thus cleansed, I ate one of the only worthwhile snackbox items – giant graham Goldfish crackers, for some reason – and dove under the covers for A Long Autumn’s Nap. Some of you may feel this is a mistake. It’s okay,...

Dressing for Star Wars – Galaxy’s Edge: My Batuu-bound Outfit

A Star Wars outfit from me?! An avowed Trekkie?!?! Look, here’s the thing: when it comes to immersive theme, I am highly suggestible. For example, I am probably the only millennial alive today who thinks Harry Potter is, like, fine or whatever. Yes, I read all the books, and I can still take him or leave him. Yet I can get HYPE for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter because it’s so freaking good at creating an exciting atmosphere. I left Universal that first time with a Ravenclaw scarf. Why? Fast forward a decade or so and ya girl...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Star Wars Dining In Galaxy’s Edge

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Not that you’d know it by reading this blog, but there are actually other restaurants in Galaxy’s Edge aside from Oga’s Cantina. You might not patronize them under the glorious shadow of DJ Rex, but they are various levels of interesting all the same. Let’s make like Luke Skywalker and a tauntaun and get into it, shall we? GALAXY’S EDGE <3s MILK How about we start with the drinks, the myths, the legends: blue and green milk. Obviously we...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Drinks & A Snack At Oga’s Cantina

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! I think we can all agree by now that a reservation at Oga’s Cantina is an absolute must for every WDW trip. Heck, I’m not even much of a Star Wars gal, and even I think that. It’s still a hot ticket, and I had to fight to get it, but it was well worth the effort. In fact, I’d despite the quieter atmosphere due to COVID restrictions, this time around was even better than the first. And I owe...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 8

It’s time for my favorite type of post: a trip report! I celebrated my second vaccine dose with a trip to WDW accompanied by Becky of Disney In Your Day. I will now exhaustively tell you all about it. You can read all the posts in this report here. Onward! I knocked out my Hourglass Lake run a little early again this morning; it was another Studios day and you know what that means: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group Rush! Once again Becky with the Fast Hands got us a boarding group, this time in the single digits. Assuming this whole...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Oga’s Cantina Review

And now for the food review portion of my 2020 WDW Marathon trip. You can read all the posts in this report here. Onward! Finally, Oga’s Cantina! THIS. WAS. SO. COOL. As I have mentioned on several occasions, I 1000% prefer to Trek over Wars with my Stars. But I gotta say, even as an inveterate follower of Captains Picard and Janeway (but mostly Tom Paris), I freakin’ loved Oga’s Cantina. The very popular flagship bar in Galaxy’s Edge, Oga’s Cantina cultivates an ambiance. The bartenders, while not playing characters per se, definitely have an air of anarchy about them (think Whispering...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/09

And now for my favorite kind of post – the trip report! I’ll be covering my 2020 Marathon trip. Onward! I was coming from my parents’ house in NC this year, and my dad very graciously drove me to the airport. Guys, the Wilmington airport is SO TINY. There are literally only three airlines there and you can stand in the center of the terminal and see EVERY SINGLE GATE. Like, in the ENTIRE airport. It’s bonkers. I did experience one small adventure even in this scaled-down setting – my crotch set off the TSA scanner. >D The TSA...
