The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Lunch at Sci-Fi Dine-In, 11/10

I arguably shouldn’t even write this post. I didn’t earn it, you see – I didn’t take any pictures of the food. This is because the Sci-Fi Dine-In at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is, as anyone who has ever eaten there knows, exceptionally dark, both to simulate the outdoors at night and to better view the giant screen o’ ridiculous sci-fi trailers. Still, I probably should’ve at least attempted flash or something. Oh well. Question about the one photo I did take: when did cars with CHAIRS become a thing? BORING. So, no food photos, but I’m forging ahead anyway...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner at ‘Ohana, 11/09

Stretching out the trip report with restaurant reviews! You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  ‘Ohana means family, and family means nobody doesn’t get a Lapu Lapu. Our second ADR of the trip was for an early dinner at ‘Ohana. Katherine, Estelle, DeJanea, Erica, and I had a great table by the window overlooking, well, the construction currently muddying up the Polynesian – but ALSO of the Magic Kingdom and Cinderella’s castle, so that was nice. We got to see the sun set over the castle followed shortly by the lights turning on. The very...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Breakfast at Kona Cafe, 11/08

Stretching out the trip report with restaurant reviews! You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Our first ADR of the trip was a gud’un – Kona Cafe with a whole bunch of awesome bloggers and blogger associates! Our group included me, Katherine, Erica, DeJanea, Nicole, Kellie and her sister, and Kimberley and her husband. Kellie was so very adamant that we begin our breakfast with Lilikoi juice that the entire table wound up ordering a round – Kellie’s sister even ordered a glass for the specific purpose of taking one sip and passing it on...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/11/14

So ends the trip report proper. 🙁 But I’m not quite finished! As I have in the past, I’ saved our ADRs for a final food review post or two. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Last day. BLARG. My morning largely consisted of packing a final few items. It could’ve been worse – at least I had a solid chunk of the day left to spend in WDW. Poor DeJanea had to leave early in the morning to catch a flight home. Sad stuff. Speaking of flights, we had received our Magical Express...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/10/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Our last full day at Walt Disney World was a Studios day, and as Estelle and I were the first people ready in the morning, we took off for the park… OR SO WE THOUGHT. Follow the bouncing bus: We walked to the Art of Animation bus stop...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/09/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Considering how late I was up the night before, I slept surprisingly poorly. By 10:30AM I threw in the nocturnal towel and got out of bed. I was a little distressed to find my phone hadn’t charged, as it had experienced some minor water damage thanks to the...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Wine & Dine Half After Party Recap

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Picking back up where we left off after the Wine & Dine Half Marathon – the after party! Weather update: STILL RAINING. First stop in Epcot: the Odyssey bathrooms. Very exciting, no? I needed that space to change out of my sopping wet pants and socks. But don’t...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Wine & Dine Half Marathon Recap

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward!  Hit it, Gene! Minus the Volkswagen connection, this should give you a pretty solid idea of what the 2014 Wine & Dine Half Marathon was like. In a word: wet. Not that we were entirely without warning. The weather forecast kept flip-flopping in the days leading up to...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 11/08/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward! I woke up much earlier than expected and, upon discovering that Estelle was headed to the Animal Kingdom for rope drop, I dressed quickly and joined her. We picked up a bus and made it to the gate just as they were letting us in – fifteen...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: 11/07/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. Okay, onward! What does one always do the night before leaving for Walt Disney World? If you answered “Sleep poorly,” you are correct! I think I achieved a grand total of four hours of sleep, but I was nevertheless up and ready to roll when my alarm went off at 5AM. I dressed quickly, shoved the last of my...
