The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Food Review Hodgepodge

Trip report time! I’m covering my April 2022 trip for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. Read all the posts in this report here. Onward! One more post from my April trip and then we can wrap this up, I promise. Real quick, let’s talk about what I ate! I know what you, a dedicated reader, are thinking: You already told us what you ate. Ah, but that was just Flower & Garden Festival items! I have some non-festival food and drinks to review as well. Let’s get to it! Breakfast Sandwich Redux at the Friar’s Nook Hey, remember...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 4/2

Trip report time! I’m covering my April 2022 trip for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. Read all the posts in this report here. Onward! I’m gonna be up front with you guys: this day did NOT go as planned. But it did go, and I’ll tell you how! I got up around 6am in preparation for Early Entry rope drop at the Magic Kingdom. I showered, prepped, and rolled out to the Pop Century bus stations. Hot WDW trip tip: 10 minutes can make all the difference. Get up 10 minutes earlier than you think strictly necessary if...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Food Review Hodgepodge

It’s trip report time again! Read all the posts in this trip report here. Onward! One does not simply eat food at Walt Disney World and then fail to talk about it. Inquiring minds want to know: what did you eat at WDW, and was it worth it? I would never hold out on you! Here’s all the comestibles and libations worth mentioning from my February Disney trip: DISNEY SPRINGS SNACKS We return to Blaze pizza for the first time in awhile, so chosen for its efficient line and carb-heavy pre-race offerings. I was pleased to see they offer...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 2/26

It’s trip report time again! Read all the posts in this trip report here. Onward! By comparison, we slept in today – all the way until 7:30am! Ah, the lazy life. After our morning hygiene/beautification/etc., we set out for the Everything Pop food court for a quick and unassuming breakfast. We ate at one of the outside tables by the pool and chatted for a bit before picking up a bus to the race expo. Obviously our first stop was bib pickup, where I managed to put my foot in the mouth almost immediately. The guy asked me if...

Before the Walt Disney World Marathon

You’re Going To Walt Disney World AGAIN???

I know! I can’t believe it either! I’ve never done this many runDisney races in this short a time period. But I’ve been sticking to my “register for ALL the races” insurance plan, and this time it’s panning out. So back to Walt Disney World we go! This particular trip adds a fun layer of nostalgia, as I’ll be running the Princess Half Marathon. The Princess Half was not only my first runDisney race but my first ever half marathon and my first ever real race back in 2013! I’ve even dragooned Erika with doing this one with me...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/10

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 day after a race is almost always a good one. As much fun as it was, the weight of expectation is lifted from your shoulders. I woke up cheerfully enough, took a shower, did some work while Erika got ready too, and off we went to Epcot! Our Skyliner ride went very smoothly, and we arrived at the International Gateway in plenty of time for Epcot’s early entry. I was just leading Erika to the...

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...
