Kids Corner Preview

{Editor’s Note: My daughter Sophie joins us today with a preview of an idea that’s been bouncing around for a while — the Kids Corner.  Here’s her preview, I hope you enjoy! ~ Mike}

Kids-Corner

Hey Kids! I’m assuming you haven’t seen the “Kid’s Corner” yet. So here’s the scoop. My name is Sophie. My Dad, Mike, runs the blog. He’s also a travel agent, so if your ‘rents want to plan a WDW trip, he’s the guy to call. ;)

Thanksgiving

My big, happy, Disney Family!!!

As for me, you can probably tell that I’m a kid too. So if you have any questions about Disney for me, I can probably answer them. Questions like:

  • “How many times have you been to Disney?” I can answer that one off the top of my head. The answer is: I have gone to Disney 12 times, the tradition started in 2005.
  • “How many hidden Mickeys are in Walt Disney World?” That one may take some research… by the way, the answer is: over 1,000 (I Googled it).

But, yes. Ask me any Question, and when you get your answer, just call me “Miss Disney-know-it-all.” Just kidding, don’t call me that. That, you might say is “part one” of my Kids Corner intro. And it is! So check back later.

Riding the Rails: Disney Snacks

Disney Snacks

When it comes to Disney Snacks, we have quite a few we enjoy!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Riding the Rails post!  Today, the Magical Blogorail is taking a look at Disney Snacks for this week’s theme, and the moment I heard the word “food”, I knew that I had something to contribute!  There are a lot of great snacks that we enjoy, so I thought I would share some with you in visual form!  I hope you’ve had breakfast, because these might make you hungry for an early lunch!  Starting us off is my daughter Sophie’s new favorite — the Jumbo Turkey Leg at Animal Kingdom (also can be had at other parks too).  This shot is too much fun for me, so I have to include it when we talk Disney Snacks!

This group of photos were all taken while we were at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, so I’m going to list the name in case it entices you for this year.

Over in Brazil, the Seared Mahi Mahi was perhaps the best dish we had.

However, also keep in mind that when it comes to Disney, they make sure that all dietary restrictions are accommodated.  For those of you with gluten issues, you can get a whole range of gluten free dishes, and even this gluten free chocolate chip cookie!

Lastly, if you need Gluten Free options, you can get a Gluten Free chocolate chip cookie!

There are a lot of different dining options and snacks for you to enjoy.  Have fun with it, don’t be afraid to try something different, and best of all, remember that you are at Disney, and everything both a) tastes better at Disney and b) has no calories at Disney!  Well, I can wish, can’t I?

What is your favorite Disney snack?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks!  Also, click on the button below and check out the rest of the great entries this week!

The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival beckons you to enjoy all it has to offer!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Wordless Wednesday post!  My friend Deb from Focused on the Magic has really struck a great theme with me this week!  Her theme is Food, Wine, and Music, and I’ve got several images to share with you that all feature — to this date, anyway — my only experience at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, back in 2011.  One day my wife and I will get back there, maybe with Sophie, maybe not — she may be there already if the gets into the Disney College Program in a few years!

Since the theme is Food, Wine, and Music, I thought I would share my pictures in that order.  So, first up…

The Food…

The Wine…

For this section, I’ll admit that we don’t do much drinking, so I don’t really have any good photos…in fact, the only photo I have is this one:

The Dessert and Champagne Kiosk

The Music…

What I lacked for in The Wine… category, I have definitely made up for in The Music… category, at least I hope you think so!
