WDW Magazine and Disney Files Magazine

Ten days from now my vacation to Walt Disney World begins! Whoopee!!

Today I received my October issue of WDW Magazine (see featured photo) and my fall issue of Disney Files Magazine, which is the magazine for Disney Vacation Club Members. Talk about timing, right? As I’m looking through the magazines, I am getting all kinds of jacked up for my holiday!

Reading Taste the World at the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival in WDW Magazine has me drooling as I contemplate making my way around World Showcase Lagoon sampling what is on offer, both food and drink. A nibble of this, a sip of that and on to the next booth. Mike and I will be over the moon sharing the small plates and drinks of the festival. Yummy!

Perusing Halloween’s Not-So-Scary at Walt Disney World also from WDW Magazine, I can hardly wait to watch Happy Hallowishes again. There’s something about the colors of these Halloween themed fireworks that draw me in. And I am so excited to watch Mickey’s Boo to You! Halloween Parade again. It’s so fun to see all of the Disney characters in their Halloween costumes. And the Disney villains are out and about, too. But my favorite part of the parade is the gravediggers from the Haunted Mansion as they drag their shovels along the pavement. And this time, for the first time, I want to go through a few candy lines to add some goodies to my trick-or-treat bag. Then I’ll top off the evening by sharing a Not-So-Poison Apple cupcake.

This will be an overwhelmingly exciting week, and it cannot come soon enough!

Meet me at the Kingdom!

Of Water and Birthdays

Day 293 in my research into activities while we visit Walt Disney World and meet up with Mickey

Today my plan was to check out the latest version of WDW Magazine.  It’s an online magazine, and it’s a bit expensive, but for a Disney buff like me, it is magnificent!  The latest issue is about the water parks and all things water at Walt Disney World.  I started looking  at it because my daughter-in-love Eliza asked if there was any place to rent kayaks or canoes at Walt Disney World.  Lo and behold there is.  For only $11 for 60 minutes, you can rent a canoe at Disney’s Fort Wilderness and Campground.  With any luck at all the kids will canoe to their hearts content, and perhaps their dad will join them.  Me?  I’ll be sitting in the shade, in a rocker at Trail’s End Restaurant with a good book.  Sheer bliss!

Meet you at the Kingdom!

BTW:  Happy birthday to my brother Gary yesterday.  Happy birthday to my mom (me littl’ English mum) in heaven today.  Happy  birthday to my brother Howard tomorrow.  I love you all, and wish we could share a cuppa to celebrate. xxoo

Resources for Disney Research

Day 45 in my travels toward all things Theme Park, but especially Mickey

Today’s plan was to do some more research.  There was a really interesting post on Facebook today by TouringPlans, called “A Guide to Walt Disney World Attraction Vehicles and Seating: Magic Kingdom.”  It describes all the seating at all the attractions in the Magic Kingdom Park.  It makes it easier to decide which attractions to try and which to pass.

I highly recommend TouringPlans.  It costs to subscribe, however, you can check on historical attendance dates.  So say I want to go to EPCOT on the 5th of October.  It will show how busy EPCOT has been on October 5th for several years back.  And it shows the same info for the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  And there is a lot more information there, too.

Also, Disneyphiles, I super-highly recommend WDW Magazine which is available as an app.  Again there is a subscription fee, but it is amazing!  I just watched the entire train ride for Hogwarts Express at Universal Studios, and the Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Parade.  Just the best!

That’s is for today.  But I am still off sugar, moving more and making the best, healthiest food choices that I can.  Meet you at the Kingdom!
