Dear, Stranger

Something happened at the end of our night at Magic Kingdom this weekend that probably shouldn’t have irked me. But it did and I’ve been thinking about it for a few days now. While waiting for the tram to take us to the parking lot at some time close to midnight, Sleeping Penny awoke in […]

There Goes the Redhead

If you’ve ever ridden Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World, you probably remember the wench auction. You know, a relatively normal pirate activity of selling off brides to the highest bidder. The scene: An auctioneer showing off an array of wenches to a bunch of drunk and disorderly pirates, shouting “We wants the […]

Making Magic

Sorry, few followers, for the hiatus from the blog. Since I last posted (early December—Yikes), we had visitors, moved, celebrated holidays, flew home to Wisconsin, had more visitors and celebrated a birthday.

We didn’t want to deal with snow and sub-freezing temperatures anymore and were ready for sunshine and year-round warm (mostly hot) weather. But there’s rain. Lots and lots of rain. Of course, we knew this going in. Central Florida has, what […]

Around the World in 80 Bites

The first time we did Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, we did it wrong. We went on the first day of the festival in 2015 but it was the last day of our trip. There were 12 of us, we all got there at different times, we were all exhausted, it was raining and […]

Calling All Dogs!

Big news from Walt Disney World Resorts: Starting October 15, select hotels on property will allow dogs to stay with their families! I’ll give you some deets before I defend the policy against the (surprisingly many) haters out there. First, there is one hotel in each tier that will allow up to 2 dogs (puppers […]

As Florida resident annual passholders, there are several tiers one can choose from. The lower tiers, which start at water parks only, do not include PhotoPass downloads. Epcot after 4, the weekday only pass and the Silver pass (which includes the most blackout dates) do not include PhotoPass downloads. Only at the Gold, Platinum or […]
