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...

In Which Jenn Has A New WDW Background Music Obsession

GUYS. With Thanksgiving is behind us, no one can disagree with me that it’s officially Christmas time. Which means that I can now tell you, with no fear of repercussions whatsoever, about my newest WDW background music obsession. Okay. We know Christmas at WDW is, like everything that happens there, pretty magical. The special holiday background loops are part of what makes the ambiance so festive. I definitely listen to loops from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and more. But the thing about those loops is that they’re all a little… dare I say it… generic. They’re collections of holiday...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/05

Trip report time! See all the posts in this report. And now for the final day of the trip report. Boo hiss. We got up early to shower and finish packing before dragging our luggage to the airport check-in desk and heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. There was a very long line for the DAK bus, but several buses arrived one after the other to get us going quickly. I realized why too late: DAK had Extra Magic Hours this morning. I had totally forgotten to check. Amateur move. Oh well! I resolved to keep a close eye on available...

In Which Jenn Considers Some Of The Latest WDW News

As is always the case in the face of loss, the WDW community is abuzz with the announcements of more changes to our beloved parks – many of the “say goodnight, Gracie” variety.  I thought, initially, that I might add my voice to the din, because what is a Disney blogger if not an Opinion Factory? But instead…  Oh, who am I kidding. Real quick: Date-based WDW ticket pricing I tend to be all or nothing when it comes to Disney ticketing – I’m buying an Annual Pass or I’m busying myself outside the parks entirely. For the time...
