The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! It happened!!! It finally happened!!!! runDisney has officially announced new, in person races! Including Wine & Dine for this November. I KNEW holding onto my resort reservations was a good idea. Hooray!!!!!!

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 5

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 around Hourglass Lake, took a shower, and grabbed breakfast from Everything Pop. It was terrible, but we can talk more about that later. Epcot didn’t open until 11am, and we left around 45 minutes in advance. Unfortunately, the Skyliner was having a bit of...

In Which Jenn Digs Up Vintage Figment Merch

There I am, stomping around the basement looking for puddles, my cell phone flashlight on because the bulb in the hanging light has...

In Which Jenn Gets By With A Little Help From Her WDW Friends

From the moment I laid eyes on it, I knew the limited edition Epcot Food & Wine Festival ears needed to be mine. Only one problem: I’m not going to the festival this year. No problem, though! Lately Disney’s been putting 95% of parks merchandise on the Shop Disney Parks app. There isn’t much that can’t be had through the app, and the initial blog post revealing the merch promised most of it would be available. So you can imagine my chagrin when I searched for the ears and saw this: LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. Of course there’s always eBay and such, but...

In Which Jenn is a Poor Disney Archivist

What you are about to see may hurt you a little. You may feel betrayed. You may wonder how I could possibly let this happen. I DIDN’T KNOW, OKAY? I DIDN’T KNOW. It was the last time my family went to Walt Disney World, 1998. I was a mere twelve years of age. Disney’s Animal Kingdom had yet to open its gates, ExtraTERRORestrial Alien Encounter was still a thing I refused to go near, and Journey Into Imagination was everything I remember it to be. I had yet to splash merrily into the pool of thrill rides and I...
