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: 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: May 8

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! I knocked out my Hourglass Lake run a little early again this morning; it was another Studios day and you know what that means: Rise of the Resistance Boarding Group Rush! Once again Becky with the Fast Hands got us a boarding group, this time in the single digits. Assuming this whole...

Liberty Inn

In Which Jenn Doesn’t Get Liberty Inn

 (Source) Okay, so I’m not trying to get up on a high horse here,* but there is one Walt Disney World behavior I simply do not understand: in all the food joints in all the World Showcase, why would you walk into the Liberty Inn? * I would happily accept a low horse. Any horse at all, really. Epcot is an epicure’s dream. Well, ish. I mean, a lot of the restaurants are serving native food and drink that some would accuse of being dumbed down for tourist palettes. But still, you’ve got Moroccan spices, a full English pub, Bavarian...

Music

In Which Jenn Digs Up New WDW Background Music Loops

As is by this point well documented, I suffer a pathological inability to get through a workday without listening to Walt Disney World background music of some kind. It’s soothing and it cheers me up!   I have lots of favorites, but sometimes after the 17th round of Innoventions area music I get the urge to branch out. And so I went on a bit of a musical YouTube walkabout the other day, wherein I discovered… not all WDW background music is created equal when it comes to porting some of the magic home.  First I tried out the Pinocchio...

In Which Jenn Dreams Of triDisney (Literally)

Longtime blog readers will know that I frequently have runDisney dreams, and 97% of the time the theme is My Screwing Up. I’ve slept through dream races, forgotten dream bibs, crossed dream start lines too late… Pretty much every race morning screw up you can imagine, I’ve dreamed it. Today I share with you another runDisney dream… but it is unique in two ways: I made it to the start line without incident. It’s not really runDisney. It’s… TRIDISNEY!!! Yes, in this dream for some reason my brain decided to posit that runDisney had added a triathlon to its...

The Fairest Trip Report of All: La Cava del Tequila Review

The trip report is over, but I still have a couple of posts left in me! In particular, food reviews. If you want to catch up on my Dopey experience, you can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go! And now we come to my final food review from our Dopey trip. Sigh. Don’t worry, though; I saved a good one for the finale! Today we’re talking about that shining beacon of Epcot: La Cava del Tequila. Furnisher of my first ever tequila shot, this comparatively new restaurant holds a special place in my...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/12/15

Is it trip report time again already? Yay! I’ll be looking back at my Dopey trip at the beginning of January, with special separate posts for each race and some food experiences depending on how much I have to say about them. You can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go!  My first (and only) full day without a race! Our modified plan for the day was a quiet one: rather than leaping out of bed and galloping straight to a park, we woke up at the leisurely time of 9:30AM. Pat immediately jumped...

In Which Jenn Went to Puerto Rico

Okay, so, like I said before, I spent the long weekend in Puerto Rico. In an effort to make this somewhat more related to the mission statement of the blog, I will say: I did not run in PR but I saw several OTHER people out for a run, which means that if I ever move to Puerto Rico I don’t have to give up my hobby. Also, I ate food! We like to talk about food around here. I wasn’t a huge fan of all the fried stuff – did you know that they fry a lot of...
