The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 8

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 knocked out my Hourglass Lake run a little early again this morning; it was another Studios day and you know what that means: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group Rush! Once again Becky with the Fast Hands got us a boarding group, this time in the single digits. Assuming this whole...

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 before we headed to Epcot. 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...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 4

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! Galaxy’s Edge time, and therefore obligatory: May the Fourth Be With You! Yes, we did it: we snagged Studios Park Passes for the most important day of the year assuming you’re a Star Wars fan. I am resolutely a Star TREK fan in favor of the Wars, but even I’m not immune to...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 2

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! This Walt Disney World story begins, as so many trip reports do, with an early morning flight. Puerto Rico has been a mess of tourists lately and the airport was surprisingly busy given the hour, but I got through security quickly enough and before long I was on my...

In Which Jenn Makes A Flower & Garden Festival To-Eat List (Take 3)

It may be a bad idea to even write this post. It went wrong in 2017. It went wrong in 2020. Do I dare too much? Sure, in 2017, it was my fault for being too zonked by sleeplessness to fully enjoy Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival. But it was the universe that took everything from me in 2020. Is it time to let optimism flounder? Can we set the bar lower than it is even now? Too late: I’ve already started the post. It’s happening. As is my wont, I’ve gone through all the published menus for the...

In Which Jenn Seeks Flower & Garden Festival Redemption

Remember last time I ran the Star Wars Half and was in WDW for the Flower & Garden Festival? Remember how I excitedly made a to-eat list in advance? Remember how I was so zombie-fied from the race that morning I didn’t try a single thing from the booths???? Dark days, my friends. Luckily, what I have on my hands now is the chance at redemption: another Star Wars Half trip, another Flower & Garden Festival, and another to-eat list. Obviously this is not an exhaustive list and items may change as the early reviews roll in. But for now,...

In Which Jenn Makes Her First-Ever Flower & Garden Festival To-Eat List

The Epcot Flower & Garden Festival food booth menus have been released AND – for the first time – I will be there to sample them. Oh, yes. Yes I will. You see, Epcot has Evening Extra Magic Hours the night after the Dark Side Half. I have PLANS. Do they involve taking a nap? Probably not. Do they involve riding Frozen Ever After while slightly drunk? I am not prepared to rule that out at this time. Anything to spice up this photo op. Yawn. What I can tell you is that they definitely involve the following foods:...
