The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/7/22

It’s time for my all-time favorite type of post: the trip report! See all the posts in my 2022 Wine & Dine Half Marathon trip report. Onward! To paraphrase the bard: parting with Walt Disney World is such sweet sorrow. Particularly sorrowful and sweet, for us, for reasons that will become apparent. The sorrowful: not only was it only last day of the trip, we had no park time planned. The good news, however, was that gave us all the more reason to sleep in after our late night at the Wine & Dine After Party. Well, Erika and...

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...

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: Disney Snack Roundup

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Some Disney snack locations don’t warrant their own posts – but come on, do we really want to leave food reviews on the table? Of course not! And with that in mind, we’re finishing up our May 2021 trip food coverage with what Douglas Adams would refer to as a Whole Sort of General Mish Mash. (I think I have used this joke before but I love it and it stays.) Let’s start with the sweet and spicy chicken waffle...
