The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Food Review Hodgepodge

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Once again we finish out this most glorious of trip reports with a food review hodgepodge. In other words, here’s what I think of some foods that are good enough to mention but not good enough to warrant their own posts. It’s a dubious honor, but then again, there are no small rolls, just star bakers. Wait, what? Anyway: TRIP REPORT, BUT MAKE IT FOODIE: ONE THING FROM CENTERTOWN MARKET AT CARIBBEAN BEACH Would you like some very boring food? Give the turkey and cheese sandwich from Centertown...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/12

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Oh, the dreaded Very Last Day. It begins in the usual fashion: get up, shower, finish packing, say goodbye to our room, check our bags at bell services. Alas and alack. Then, of course, it gets more fun for a bit! Our first stop that morning was Epcot, so we took that lovely stroll over to the most magnificent Skyliner. Nothing can compare. And stopping for coffee on the way in? That’s the icing on the cake. We were just in time to enter during the extra resort...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Fireworks & California Grill 50th Anniversary Dinner Review

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Settle in, kids, because I’m gonna tell you all about what was arguably the best part of the whole trip. Funnily enough, I debated cancelling this reservation, but as it turns out the California Grill 50th Anniversary Dinner is EXCELLENT. Let’s talk through it! We started our experience by checking into the podium an hour early, where the Cast Member stationed there was able to put in – although not guarantee, of course – our request to be seated earlier than our 9:25pm reservation if at all possible....

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/11

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Ah, yes, the existential crisis that is the last full day. It did not start out smoothly. 😅 Okay, so, first things first: of course I got up at 7am. Goals: a Flight of Passage Individual Lightning Lane, plus regular Lightning Lane reservation through Genie+. Shouldn’t be a problem, right? WELL. The My Disney Experience app thought this would be a GREAT time to question my identity. It started by asking for my thumbprint. Then it cheerfully informed me it had emailed me a passcode. I retrieved and...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/10

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. And it’s another crack o’ dawn aka 7am wakeup call to start the morning! This time I was after one of those elusive Rise of the Resistance Individual Lightning Lane spots again. Which actually seem almost weirdly easy to get? I mean, I’m sure spots grow scarce the longer you wait, but it’s nothing like the crazy virtual queue days of old where milliseconds counted. That’s something anyway. I snuck in a quick shower before dragging Pat out of bed, and we headed over to the Skyliner. We stopped...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: The Agave Experience At La Cava Del Tequila

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Teetotalers need not apply, because today we’re going to talk about The Agave Experience in La Cava del Tequila! Just in case, let’s kick it back to basics first. La Cava del Tequila is the tequila and margarita bar that’s inside the pyramid in the Mexico pavilion. It’s on your right when you first enter. La Cava is run by an outside company, not Disney. Unlike the quick service stands outside, they offer tequila shots in addition to specialty margaritas. The space is tiny, so if you want to...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/9

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Another 7am wakeup call, as is the New Normal. But this time I wasn’t after Individual Lightning Lanes or Genie+ slots – I wanted a place in the Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure virtual queue! Which I got, but at a time that perfectly coincided with our tequila tasting in Mexico. I resolved to check in with Guest Experience staff upon arrival at Epcot, but as it turned out it was never necessary; by park open our predicted boarding call time had moved back about two hours. Every...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At Homecomin’

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Look, I know I kinda already reviewed Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ in Disney Springs last time. But Pat was dying to try it and to be honest, I was jonesing to go back myself. It’s that good! And everybody knows it, because Advanced Dining Reservations here are a hot ticket. I was only able to snag a 9pm ADR. You can always check in early, though, which is what we did, and wound up getting seats at the bar about an hour in advance. Score! I might still have...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/8

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. After our late night, I would’ve slept in a bit this morning, but I had a new 7am mission: an Advanced Dining Reservation at Le Cellier for my January WDW Marathon trip. I wasn’t able to secure the exact date and time I wanted, but I did end up with something that works. Success! I rewarded myself with an extra 45 minutes of shuteye. But then it was up and off to the showers, because Walt Disney World awaited! Originally I had made our park pass...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 11/7

It’s trip report time again! Read all posts in this trip report here. Post-race, I did what I think we all do: immediately hopped in the shower. Thank God the showers at Caribbean Beach get good and hot, because I could barely feel my hands! GLOVES next time, Jenn. Throwaway race gloves. C’mon, you know better than that. Thus cleansed, I ate one of the only worthwhile snackbox items – giant graham Goldfish crackers, for some reason – and dove under the covers for A Long Autumn’s Nap. Some of you may feel this is a mistake. It’s okay,...
