Seven Weeks Until Disney – Seven Things to Experience

Seven Weeks
Hello everyone, and welcome to our weekly countdown post of things we want to experience while we are at Disney next month!

This week we’re focusing on attractions that we want to experience for one reason or another.  There’s no real rhyme or reason for this list, just because, which I suppose is reason enough for me! I hope you enjoy the list!

Pirates of the Caribbean

Simply put, this is just one of those attractions that we really enjoy, even if the version at Disneyland is better…
For a unique twist of the theme song from the movies, check out this YouTube video:

Test Track

Test Track for us is one of the overlooked attractions at Epcot. We are such fans of Soarin’ that usually that’s what gets our top-tier FastPass selection, and as a result, we end up skipping on Test Track. This time, though, we are interested in experiencing it, so hopefully we’ll make that a reality!

Soarin’ over the World

Since it’s been a few years since we have been to Walt Disney World, we have not experienced Soarin’ over the World yet, but it’s definitely on our list to experience! Hopefully we’ll make it a reality on this trip!

Frozen Ever After

So my daughter and her best friend have no interest in Frozen Ever After, but the adults do, so we’ll see if we can experience it. Part of me wants to see what it will be like in replacement of Maelstrom, so for any of you that have answers to that, feel free to comment below and let me know.

Star Tours

Star Tours is one of those attractions that Disney just did right when they updated it.  They turned a tired attraction into one of my favorite attractions at Hollywood Studios, and I’m hoping to experience it once again next month.

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Seven Weeks

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad is still, to this day, one of my favorite roller coasters.  Everything from going around that curve, to watching for the saloon girls in the window dancing, to looking for Hidden Mickey’s, there’s just a ton I love about this attraction, and I can’t wait to see it and experience it again.

Expedition Everest

Seven Weeks

A thrilling roller coaster located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom park!

Closing us out this week is Expedition Everest over at Animal Kingdom.  Still one of my favorites, I can almost guarantee that Cindy and I at least will be experiencing this attraction once again.

That concludes our look for this week of the attractions we want to experience next month at Disney.  What’s on your list of attractions and experiences to enjoy at Disney?

V8 Cafe

The Blogorail: Flo’s V8 Cafe at Disneyland Resort

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are telling you all about some of the best quick service restaurants at Disneyland.


V8 Cafe

The Neon at Flo’s V8 Cafe makes this a great spot to photograph at night!

Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to work through all of the posts for this month’s Magical Blogorail Green line — the Best Quick Service Restaurants at Disneyland!  Now, I know that Flo’s V8 Cafe isn’t at Disneyland — it’s at Disney’s California Adventure Park — but to me, I was reading this to be about the best Quick Service Restaurants at Disneyland Resort, not just at one of the parks, and to me, not many things can top the atmosphere, food, and incredible theming of Flo’s V8 Cafe, so it’s my choice to close us out!

Located in Cars Land, of course, Flo’s is a great restaurant to enjoy.  The food is incredible, it wasn’t terribly busy both times we ate there, and there is plenty of seating.  It’s a great place to relax, take a load off, and just take in the scenery of Cars Land.

V8 Cafe

Pot Roast, Turkey, and every child’s favorite, Mac and Cheese!

Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Flo’s V8 Cafe is worth a try if you’ve never eaten here before, and I’ll tell you, I’m sure it tastes much better than oil and gas that the cars “ate” in the movie!  For more information, check out the restaurant page on Disneyland’s website, and this link will take you to the menus so you can navigate through them.

So tell me, have you eaten at Flo’s V8 Cafe before?  If so, what did you think?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by today!

Silly Symphony Swings Video Post

Silly Symphony Swings

The Silly Symphony Swings are nestled in the middle of Paradise Pier!

After what feels like an incredibly long delay, today we begin our recap of things that we saw and experienced during our trip.  In today’s post, we’re taking a look at one of the sleeper attractions at the Disneyland Resort — the Silly Symphony Swings!  This is just a standard sort of attraction, nothing too special about it, except that it features music from the early Disney series of cartoons called the Silly Symphonies!  My niece Stephanie’s husband Shane took this video of the ride when he rode it in July, and here it is for you to see what you think of it.  It has great music accompanying it, as well as some great views of the Paradise Pier section of California Adventure!  Have a look, and enjoy!

What did you think of the Silly Symphony Swings video and ride?  Does it make you want to go ride the attraction yourself?  I think that this is one of those attractions that I’d love to have over at Walt Disney World.  What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by!
