Magnificent Minnie!

We are tired out! Emi, James, Ida and I opted out of our Fastpasses today and relaxed at Old Key West. Mike went in to Disney’s Hollywood Studio early on his own and walked around, until Jake, Eliza and Linnie showed up. They went to The Little Mermaid and Toy Story Mania!

The rest of us showed up in time for Minnie’s Halloween Dinner at Hollywood and Vine restaurant. It was a blast, and Ida finally warmed up to the characters, especially Minnie Mouse. As we posed with Minnie at the entry Ida kept saying, “She’s very gentle and kind,” to herself as a mantra. I can’t recommend this buffet dinner enough. The food was so delicious, and the characters all made sure to visit each table.

Linnie ended up seeing a nurse at the park and had a bit of a fever so they took her back to the resort to chill out. She seems to be doing a little bit better tonight, and the fever has broken.

What a busy, busy day!

Meet me at the Kingdom.

My “Magic of Tomorrow” Prize

There are only 16 days now until my Walt Disney World Family Reunion. Woo hoo!

A couple weeks back I won a competition on magicoftmrw blog, (magicoftomorrow.info). I received my prize package this week. It was so much fun to open the box and see what I had won. Here’s a rundown of what I won:

  1. A beautiful, yellow Belle mug, from Beauty and the Beast. There’s a pretty picture of Belle on one side, and the other side says, “It’s hard to be a Beauty when mornings are a Beast.”
  2. A cute keychain shaped like Mickey Mouse’s head. In the middle there is a die (one dice? One side has Cinderella’s castle with the words “Disney Parks”, the other side have, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald. I just the cutest! I put it straight on my keychain.
  3. A pretty lei from Disney’s Polynesian Resort. It’s colors, pink, lilac, yellow, orange, light green, and white add a festive decoration to the lamp by my favorite chair.
  4. A bag of Disney’s Halloween Candy Corn Popcorn. It looks so yummy! It has orange and yellow popcorn in the bag with a few actual candy corns thrown in. I had already decided to try this popcorn while in Florida. Now, I will save it to share with Mike, my main squeeze, on Halloween night as we watch “Hocus Pocus.”
  5. A very cute Mickey Mouse thank you card.

It was wonderful timing to get me all juiced up for my vacation. So thank you to Magic of Tomorrow!

Meet me at the Kingdom.

Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine

With only forty-six days to our vacation to Walt Disney World, I want to feature Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood & Vine. We will dine here for an early dinner on our fifth full day in Florida. This is a Halloween themed buffet dinner, featuring four of the Fab 5 (Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Goofy), plus Daisy, in Halloween costumes. And from various blurbs on YouTube, the buffet of food gets great reviews.
