The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/9

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 bus back from the marathon finish area dropped us at Pop first, and I hobbled back to my room after the fashion of Marty Feldman in Young Frankenstein. Never had the ’80s section felt so far away, and it already felt pretty darn far away. Of course I eventually made it, and I immediately leapt into the shower. I see you your shower beer and raise you a shower Powerade (red). Afterward I busted open...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/11

It‚Äôs trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Ah, yes, the existential crisis that is the last full day. It did not start out smoothly. ūüėÖ Okay, so, first things first: of course I got up at 7am. Goals: a Flight of Passage Individual Lightning Lane, plus regular Lightning Lane reservation through Genie+. Shouldn’t be a problem, right? WELL. The My Disney Experience app thought this would be a GREAT time to question my identity. It started by asking for my thumbprint. Then it cheerfully informed me it had emailed me a passcode. I retrieved and...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/6

Hello and welcome to another WDW trip report, where I tell you in excruciating detail every little infinitesimal thing that happened during my last jaunt through The Most Magical Place on Earth. All posts in this report will be collected here. All right then. Shall we? We shall! As is so often the case, we began the trip with a very early morning wakeup call. I was a little concerned about finding an Uber at 4:30am, but as it turned out we got a driver immediately and were at the airport in plenty of time. Speaking of plenty of...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At Tiffins

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! When planning out the advanced dining reservations for our May trip, the first name I threw out was Tiffins. I’ve been to Nomad Lounge, the attached bar space, many a time, but never the restaurant proper. I heard it was kinda expensive but worth it, and luckily Becky was down! Follow along with the menu here. I must say here, at the outset of my review, that this really is a top-notch restaurant. Although the themes are far...

In Which You Can Hear ALL The Disney Parks Music In Single Videos

My love of Walt Disney World background music loops is well documented. There’s just something so soothing about listening to the sounds of the Disney parks while doing work or chores; it floats the mind away to a better, more carefree place. I have lots of favorites, but I’m also always on the hunt for new treasures. I was poking around YouTube for just this reason when I came upon a video from Epcat77¬†that claimed to be the ENTIRE master music loop for Disney’s Animal Kingdom – yes, the whole entire park. Eager to explore every possible musical nook...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 7

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 extra early for my usual Hourglass Lake run, because it was Disney’s Animal Kingdom day! And as it was our only¬†Animal Kingdom day, we wanted to get there ahead of the 8am opening time. (The weird thing is, DAK is my favorite park and I want to say Becky’s...

In Which Jenn Has A Christmas Jingle In The Jungle

Every Christmas I embark upon a mission: to dig up the most uniquely Christmas background music that I can, the kind that’s themed in such a way that it feels¬†like Disney in a manner regular carols can’t evoke. While it’s tempting to just repost the Animal Kingdom Lodge holiday background loop¬†every year and call it a day, I have two¬†new loops for you this year, and both in the same vein! I enlisted the help of Twitter in my quest, and one of the suggestions that came back was Trader Sam’s loop. I searched for it on YouTube and...

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 Likes Yoga Because Of Disney, Obviously

Since I moved to Puerto Rico I don’t have as many cross-training opportunities as I once did. Well, I say that – all I ever used to do was ballet. I’ve actually been doing some weight training and resistance exercises in addition to running, so you could argue that I’m doing more¬†cross-training, maybe? But I miss ballet. Not to say there isn’t ballet in PR. Obviously there totally is. But we’re sharing a car now and there are no dance studios in easy distance of me. Boo. Yet when we first arrived and lived in temporary quarters, for a...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: ANOTHER Nomad Lounge Review

Trip report time!¬†See all the posts in this report. Q. Oh Jenn, you’ve reviewed the¬†Nomad Lounge¬†in like 87 times. Why don’t you try eating somewhere different in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, like Harambe Market or Yak and Yeti? A. No. Q. Okay, well, if you¬†must¬†go to Nomad Lounge AGAIN, why don’t you order a drink you’ve never had before?¬† A. No. The Hightower Rocks, essentially a watermelon margarita, comes with an enormous wedge of watermelon. It’s a drink¬†and¬†snack. To stray would be to set oneself up for disappointment. Q. Fine, but couldn’t Erika have tried something different? A. No. She...
