Top 5 Food Experiences at Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month, we’re talking about one of my favorite topics – food! Specifically, our Top 5 foods or restaurants at Disney. I’m a serious foodie. Meals can make or break my vacations, which probably explains a lot about where I travel, and why I’d return to Walt Disney World in a heartbeat! Picking just five food experiences I’d love to re-experience has been tough. It’s really not fair, when even the fast food is pretty good! But I’ll give it a shot: 5. Spirit of Aloha dinner show. The show itself was mixed – I could easily skip the first half which was more kitschy dinner theater than I really care for. The second half, featuring traditional polynesian dancers, was amazing. Our entire family, including...

Alfredo a la Epcot

Thank Goofy It’s Friday – and it’s time to relax, enjoy a good meal, and recapture a little of the magic that gets lost in the chaos of the week. And let me tell you, this week has been chaotic! I spent most of the week arranging a cruise for some old friends, and was able to get them some extra perks thrown in for fun. (I actually have 4 more staterooms set aside, so if you’re thinking of escaping next February drop me a note and I’ll get you the details!) This is a reprise of a post I wrote several months ago, when the Foodie Friday concept first popped onto my blogging radar. I love getting to share my other first love – cooking – with a healthy dose of Disney thrown in for fun, and getting to share it with you! On the menu today: Alfredo...

Favorite Future World Attraction: Living with the Land

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re heading over to Epcot to discuss our favorite Future World attractions. I’ll admit, I was a little bored with Future World. The kids spent what felt like hours – hours! – exploring the fire safety exhibit. Yes, in the middle of Walt Disney World, my kids find the most hard-core educational activity around and refuse to leave. I blame their teacher! Ok, so maybe it wasn’t that bad, but I’m really more of a World Showcase kind of girl. I did find one attraction that captured my imagination, and I found it completely by accident. On our last day, we decided to go to Epcot for the morning before heading to the airport. After we finally pried the kids out...

Reasons to Return to Walt Disney World in Fall

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re talking about Fall in Walt Disney World. We visited Walt Disney World in early September, the week before the Fall decorations were put up. We chose this week purposely, partly because we didn’t want the special decor and events to overshadow Walt Disney World itself. We wanted to experience the classic Disney vacation. Had I known about the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, that might have changed – or it might not. Our first trip was classic, hot and wonderful. By the end of that week, we had started to accumulate a list of reasons to go back. Since I don’t have pictures and personal stories of all the wonderful Fall-themed events at Walt Disney World, I’d like to...

Disney Dream (Virtual) Vacation

It’s Thursday, and that means it’s Blog Hop day! As always, I’d like to thank Lisa of Babes in Disneyland for hosting! I’ve missed the hop for the last few weeks but this week’s theme jumped out at me. Today, we’re talking about Disney Dreams. When we went to Walt Disney World last year, it was a matter of necessity. We all needed a break. We needed to get away from the craziness of reality for a while and at the same time rediscover our essential realities – fun, family, silliness, and other very important things. This year has been more of the same – differently crazy, but still crazy. Unfortunately, we won’t be hopping on board the Magical Express this Fall, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream! My Dream (Virtual) Vacation has one central theme: Time, and plenty of it. Time to spend really exploring our resort, seeing...
