The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At Homecomin’

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Look, I know I kinda already reviewed Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ in Disney Springs last time. But Pat was dying to try it and to be honest, I was jonesing to go back myself. It’s that good! And everybody knows it, because Advanced Dining Reservations here are a hot ticket. I was only able to snag a 9pm ADR. You can always check in early, though, which is what we did, and wound up getting seats at the bar about an hour in advance. Score! I might still have...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/8

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. After our late night, I would’ve slept in a bit this morning, but I had a new 7am mission: an Advanced Dining Reservation at Le Cellier for my January WDW Marathon trip. I wasn’t able to secure the exact date and time I wanted, but I did end up with something that works. Success! I rewarded myself with an extra 45 minutes of shuteye. But then it was up and off to the showers, because Walt Disney World awaited! Originally I had made our park pass...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Our Disney Springs Bar Crawl

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Guys! Have you ever eschewed an evening in one of the parks in favor of a bar crawl at Disney Springs? Sounds crazy, right? Well YOU SHOULD DO IT. Becky and I did and it was awesome! I talked about our evening in the general sense in my trip report proper, but I wanted to give the bars in question a well-deserved spotlight. ¡Adelante! BEGIN THE DISNEY SPRINGS BAR CRAWL! Our first stop, the only one for which we had a...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 6

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 got up early for a quick run and shower before our Magic Kingdom morning. We didn’t plan to make rope drop anyway, so we spent a little time perfecting our outfit choices for the day because we both like looking thematically cute while park-going. People give you compliments and stuff! It’s...

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? Clearly I was the person to ask. Needless to say I dropped everything I was doing and...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Wine Bar George 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! See, what happened was, Becky of Disney In Your Day very kindly allowed us to horn in on her Wine Bar George post-half marathon brunch ADR down in the Disney Springs, despite the fact that she had only the internet’s authority that I am a real person. Thanks for accepting me on faith, B-Gees! Like many restaurants in Disney Springs, Wine Bar George doesn’t have a theme per se, but it does have a nice airy feel...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/11

And now for my favorite kind of post – the trip report! I’ll be covering my 2020 Marathon trip. You can read all the posts in this report here. Onward! The bus line post-half marathon was long, but lucky Pop’s popularity was anticipated and many buses awaited us; we were on one and back in our room in no time flat. We took turns showering and changing before finishing up some light packing and heading out the door – it was time to transfer from Pop to Animal Kingdom Lodge! So when I initially made my room reservation I only...

In Which Jenn Eats Morimoto Street Food

I’m so sorry, friends. I pulled the old bait-and-switch on you. But don’t take it out of Morimoto Street Food; the fault lies exclusively with me. The afternoon of my Disney Springs adventure I polled the Twitter audience: where should I eat lunch? D-Luxe Burger or Jock Lindsey’s? But before I could determine a winner I found myself suddenly, desperately post-marathon hungry, so I ducked into the first restaurant in my area that piqued my interest. Enter: Morimoto Street Food. I’ve had an eye on this location for some time, but a shinier penny – usually a table-service restaurant – has always...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Disney Springs & The Sad Goodbye

Continuing my trip report for my January 2019 WDW trip. See all the posts in this report here. Onward! Post-massage, I hightailed it back to my room to squeeze every last second out of the experience before checkout. I put on some restorative Hotel TV (Friends marathon; you can always count on one) and finished packing all my stuff before slinking down to bell services to check my duffle. Thus unburdened, I hopped on the bus to Disney Springs. My first order of business was to grab some food, but as is my wont, I got distracted. I made the game...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/02

Trip report time! See all the posts in this report. Hello and welcome to my 2018 Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend trip report! It begins, as just about all my trip reports do, with me getting practically no sleep the night before. I met up with my trip buddy Erika, and my dad drove us to the airport. No problems, easy flight. As Mary Poppins says, well begun is half done. Our plane landed a bit early, and we marched right on down to the Magical Express stop, which whisked us off to Pop Century. In an unprecedented turn...
