Coast to Coast

November 27, 2015

For the second year in a row, I completed runDisney’s Coast to Coast Challenge in the span of one week.  The Coast to Coast Challenge medal is earned by runDisney participants, who complete an endurance race that is half marathon (13.1 miles) or better at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland in the same calendar year. ...

The REAL Animal Kingdom

November 13, 2015
Alligator INSIDE the Magic Kingdom!

Over the weekend, I was enjoying a leisurely stroll through the Magic Kingdom.  Crowd levels were high and it was too warm to exert much energy, especially after participating in two runDisney events.  The decision to slow down and look at all of the details in the park proved to be a good one....

Just Keep Eating

October 30, 2015

Tonight, I had a bag of popcorn for dinner.  Not because I hadn’t gone grocery shopping, but because I didn’t want to cook.  I cook all the time, and am pretty good at it, but I think I’m going on strike for a few days.  Why? I’ve made a list of all of the...

History Repeats Itself

October 16, 2015

This time last year, I was planning to go to the Wine and Dine Half Marathon at Walt Disney World and the Inaugural Avengers Half Marathon at Disneyland.  Well, history is repeating itself, with a few added bonuses.  In a few weeks, I’ll be headed back to Florida for the Wine and Dine Half...

While Disney is always upgrading and improving, there are a few things, in my opinion, missing from the mobile app and the service.  Here...

CJ meeting a fellow blogger's daughter.  Instant friends!

I’d like to interrupt your regularly scheduled happy time with the following public service announcement.  On your next Disney vacation, take advantage of the cultural melting pot that is created in Central Florida by the thousands of people who visit the parks every day.  America’s future depends on it. Let’s face it.  Tomorrow, you will...

Wish Fulfillment

September 4, 2015

Disney Parks are often imitated, but never duplicated!  I love Disney. It is certainly a “give and take” relationship. I give my money, and Mickey willingly takes it. While I do not mind our current arrangement, and I was very pleased with the news coming out of this year’s D23 Expo, there are a...

Fanciful Food Truck Fare

August 21, 2015

With the popularity of food trucks, it was inevitable that they would appear on Disney property, and I was thrilled to hear the news. Around just about a year now, they are typically located in Downtown Disney on the West Side. There are four different trucks that vary in food type from Disneyland’s famous...

The Magic of Mouse Ears

July 24, 2015

Mouse Ears.  Over the years they have become available in a large range of colors, shapes and sizes, but the thing that remains certain is the undeniable silhouette that one gets after putting on a pair.  As one of the more recognizable souvenirs one would purchase on a Disney vacation, the Mouse Ear Hats first...

$25 a Day at Disney World

July 10, 2015

There are a few things I’m known for, one of which is being cheap.  I prefer to call it, “Frugal Fun.”  Since I’ll be at the parks an extended time period this summer (three weeks, woo hoo!) I figured I’d better spend the trip wearing two hats, the “foodie” hat and the “frugal” one. ...
