Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Food Reviews!

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! Every Walt Disney World trip absolutely mandates an ex post facto food debrief. This year’s Epcot Flower & Garden Festival food booths had so many interesting offerings, I determined they deserved their own post. And now here we are! Read on to see how I felt about the snacks I tried. Since this year’s festival runs through July, it might even help you assemble your own to-eat list. Tupelo Honey and Sweet Corn Spoon...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 4/4

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! Hey, y’know how on the first full day I was all proud of myself for waking up early and beating the crowds? My comeuppance arrives here, on the last day of the trip: I should have gotten up 10 minutes earlier. By the time I costumed myself, packed the remainder of my things, stowed said things at departure bag check, and queued up for the Skyliner, I could tell I was a bit behind...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 4/3

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! The best part of any runDisney race is, of course, the race. Duh. But the second best part is without a doubt the shower and nap right afterward. Post-Tower of Terror 10 Miler I indulged in a long shower and 2 hour nap in my glorious king bed, and it was delightful. Not gonna lie, I could’ve slept longer – but I had an Oga’s Cantina reservation to make! I dragged myself out from...

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...

Okay, one more Walt Disney World trip report and then I promise not another one until November, okay? (Probably. Like, if something falls in my lap…) Read all the posts in this report here. We begin this tale with a crazy airplane adventure! The kind that’s on the ground, that is; no lives were lost on this journey. I was coming from North Carolina after visiting my parents partially for race purposes. We drove to MYR and I hopped on my flight to Baltimore, all without a hitch. Things looked good at BWI. My airplane to MCO arrived a...

It’s trip report time again! Read all the posts in this trip report here. Onward! Erika had to catch a morning flight and left around 4am; I have a vague recollection of waving goodbye, but aside from that, I was essentially flying solo for the day. I popped out of bed a couple hours later, prepped for the day, threw the rest of my stuff together, and said the sad goodbye to my room. I left my bags will the checkout-specific bell services and joined what turned out to be a very long Skyliner queue. The Cast Members were...

It’s trip report time again! Read all the posts in this trip report here. Onward! The end of any runDisney race is a whirl of mixed emotions – you’re happy and sad that it’s over all at once. But there is something so calm and lovely about coming back to your room right after, especially the bit where you take a long hot shower. (Maybe you take a cold one like you’re “supposed” to but I’m not about that Arctic life.) I nestled, clean and satisfyingly tired, into bed and awaited the arrival of Erika. She was back shortly...

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...

Hello and welcome to yet another Walt Disney World trip report! For the first time in forever, I ran the Princess Half Marathon, and you know I have to tell you every single detail about it. Read all posts in the report here. Onward! Since I was coming from my parents’ place in North Carolina, I wasn’t able to get a direct flight to Orlando, and that meant I didn’t arrive in Florida until mid-to-late afternoon. Luckily my connection went smoothly, all my planes were on time, and I was in an Uber on the way to Pop Century...

Time for another trip report! I’ll be covering my 2022 WDW Marathon Weekend trip. Find all the posts in this report here. Onward! Oh, the bittersweet saga that is the last day in Walt Disney World. Some weeks ago I had thought to myself, maybe I’ll get up early the last day and do a strength workout. Luckily I came to my sense the night before and set my alarm to “sleep in” instead. I hopped out of bed, took a quick shower, dropped my bags at baggage check (which is at the old airline check-in desk for departures...
