How To Use FastPass+

I just had my first FastPass+ experience, and I’m mostly happy about it. FastPass+ is a system being rolled out at Walt Disney World that’s the next iteration of their awesome FastPass system, which was introduced about 15 years ago to reduce the length of time guests wait in lines. My pre-FastPass visits to Disney […]

Be Our Guest!

Last week I travelled to Disney World for the grand opening of the expanded areas of Fantasyland. And while the new rides are awesome, my favorite part wasn’t a ride, it was a restaurant. Specifically, the building. The Be Our Guest restaurant is housed in The Beast’s Castle, from Beauty and the Beast, high on […]

The New Test Track Is Open!

The original version of Test Track was one of my favorite rides at Epcot. I was sad to see it go, but was excited for what was to come. I got to try out the brand new Test Track Thursday night, and it did not disappoint. Where the old version was all about safety – […]

Jordin Sparks & Ginnifer Goodwin Cut The Ribbon For New Fantasyland

This morning was really special: it was the official grand opening of the new Fantasyland! “Once Upon A Time” actress Ginnifer Goodwin and “American Idol” winner Jordin Sparks teamed up to cut the ribbon to officially open the biggest expansion in Magic Kingdom history. They were joined on stage by Tom Staggs, Chairman of Disney […]

Why I’m At Disney World (Other than, Because I’m Really Lucky)

One of the great things about working with the wonderful people at Disney is that they don’t do anything half way. I didn’t just get an invitation to come down to Disney World for the grand opening of the new, expanded Fantasyland, I got an entire storybook. Disney is all about the details, and the […]

Disney’s Tangled Royal Family 5K

Heading over with our group to the Tangled Royal Family 5K on Saturday morning I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do. It was the first day all week that I was feeling myself, my really bad cold having finally exited my body. And while most of the people in our group were […]

Disney’s Fit for a Princess Expo

In my last post I mentioned how terrible I felt when I woke up on Friday, but things improved rapidly from there as the cold finally started to leave my body – just in time, since the Tangled Royal Family 5k was the next morning! After our early run with Jeff Galloway (more like a […]

From bad, to worse, to great with runDisney

I’d been sick for several days before heading down to Disney World on Thursday for the Tangled Family 5K and Princess Half Marathon. By Friday morning, when my alarm went off at 5:30, I was feeling terrible. I’d woken up every fifteen minutes or so all night until 4:30, then finally managed to get one […]

And then a few zebra wandered by…

Zebra So after a check-in glitch that left me without a working room key until 11pm last night (very un-Disney-like!), I’m now happily ensconced in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. The thing about these press trips is that we do more in a day than I usually do in a week, and I’m still not feeling […]
