The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Brunch At Topolino’s Terrace

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! As a patron of the arts, how could I possibly resist breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace in Disney’s Riviera Resort? The only way it could be more perfectly themed to my taste is if there was a petting zoo attached. Let’s take a look at this magnificent character breakfast experience, shall we? (Here’s the menu if you want to take a look.) Disney’s Riviera Resort is themed to – wait for it – the Riviera, largely of the French and Italian...

In Which Jenn Picks Her Very Favorite Posts

Hey guys! As of a couple weeks ago, this little blog (it’s called The Fairest Run Of All, but you can always glance up at the header if you forget again) turned eight years old. This isn’t as big a deal as the sort of anniversary that has a five on the end of it, but not bad, right? A good run so far. We’ve racked up a heckuva lot of posts over the years, and I figured this would be as good a time as any to comb through the archives and put together a list of my...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Drinks & A Snack At Oga’s Cantina

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! I think we can all agree by now that a reservation at Oga’s Cantina is an absolute must for every WDW trip. Heck, I’m not even much of a Star Wars gal, and even I think that. It’s still a hot ticket, and I had to fight to get it, but it was well worth the effort. In fact, I’d despite the quieter atmosphere due to COVID restrictions, this time around was even better than the first. And I owe...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Dinner At Tiffins

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! When planning out the advanced dining reservations for our May trip, the first name I threw out was Tiffins. I’ve been to Nomad Lounge, the attached bar space, many a time, but never the restaurant proper. I heard it was kinda expensive but worth it, and luckily Becky was down! Follow along with the menu here. I must say here, at the outset of my review, that this really is a top-notch restaurant. Although the themes are far...

In Which You Can Hear ALL The Disney Parks Music In Single Videos

My love of Walt Disney World background music loops is well documented. There’s just something so soothing about listening to the sounds of the Disney parks while doing work or chores; it floats the mind away to a better, more carefree place. I have lots of favorites, but I’m also always on the hunt for new treasures. I was poking around YouTube for just this reason when I came upon a video from Epcat77 that claimed to be the ENTIRE master music loop for Disney’s Animal Kingdom – yes, the whole entire park. Eager to explore every possible musical nook...

In Which Jenn Does (& Doesn’t) Run In Walt Disney World

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Remember how one of my pre-trip to-do items was to run the full loop around Seven Seas Lagoon? Well, I… didn’t. But it’s not entirely my fault. See, I thought with the completion of the bridge from the Magic Kingdom to the Grand Floridian that the loop would finally close – and that if you could walk from The Contemporary to the TTA, or the Polynesian to the Grand Floridian, it stood to reason that you can run the full...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Lunch At BaseLine Tap House

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Fact: Becky absolutely adores BaseLine Tap House in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Fact: I had never been to BaseLine Tap House. WE WENT. And while the theming is subtle and the offerings are basic, it didn’t disappoint. Follow along with the menu here. BaseLine is intended to feel like a California craft brewpub, and while it does offer some wines and cocktails its pride is its rotating collection of beers. Faced with such a selection, I did the only thing I could...

Twelve Days of Sockmas Advent Calendar

Disney’s Twelve Days Of Sockmas Advent Calendar: Let’s Open ‘Em Up

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! WE’ HAVE A 2319!!!!!!! Twelve of them, actually. Okay, so, one of the items I picked up at Cast Connection was a sort of sock advent calendar, which offered twelve pairs of socks behind little cardboard doors. I figured it’d be fun to open a door each day after I got home from my trip. Normally advent calendars have 24 doors for December 1 – 24, so I suppose you’d start this one on December 12? I guess nobody needs...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Lunch At The Wave

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Our first sit down meal of the the trip was at The Wave, a monorail restaurant in The Contemporary that seems to fly under the radar. Yeah, it’s not elaborately themed or a character meal, and no, it’s not fine dining a la California Grill or Narcoossee’s, but it’s definitely worth a trip out of the culinary wasteland that is the Magic Kingdom at the very least. Let’s dive (PUNS) in, shall we? Follow along with the menu here. I...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: May 9

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! No matter how long a Walt Disney World trip is, it never feels long enough. Even eight days, a length of time I haven’t spent at WDW since I think 2009, felt like it went by in a thematically appropriate Thanos snap (Team Thanos!). I skipped my run and slept in on...
