Epcot 35th Anniversary Legacy Showplace Display

Disney has a nice little exhibit celebrating Epcot’s 35th anniversary in what they’re calling the Legacy Showplace.

You might know it as the Odyssey Building, which doubles as the Craft Beer installation during Food and Wine. Depending on your opinion of where Epcot is headed, you may want to have a couple beers before moving over to the Horizons concept art.

Review: Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

We venture out to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground for Hoop-Dee-Doo-Musical Revue, the dinner show that debuted all the way back on June 30, 1974, or the day before this website was founded.

Whenever Fort Wilderness comes up, I feel like half the time is devoted to trying to explain how to get to Pioneer Hall/Settlement Depot, which is where you’ll find the Hoop-Dee-Doo Theater/Pioneer Hall, Trail’s End, the takeaway quick service, Mickey’s Backyard BBQ, the resort store, the marina, etc. For more detailed transportation information or to read my review on weekend brunch at Trail’s End, see this post.

Review: STK Orlando Happy Hour at Disney Springs

We return to Disney Springs to visit STK for their weekday happy hour offerings.

My original review is among my favorites that have appeared on this website and includes a long introduction into everything that STK “offers,” in addition to a review of 25 items from the menu.

Review: Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk

We return to Flying Fish, the BoardWalk-area signature restaurant located on Crescent Lake and to the right of AbracadaBar and Trattoria al Forno.

This is the website’s second review of Flying Fish, post-refurbishment, with the first look available here. But since the first review only included phone pictures and with a recent menu update, I thought it would be prudent to make a return visit.

Meet Me, Dave, and Steve on Sunday September 24

You have the very rare opportunity to meet me in real life at my one contractually obligated meet and greet of the year. I’ll be joined by Dave from yourfirstvisit.net and Steve from MilitaryDisneyTips.com on Sunday September 24th from 5:30pm through about 6:30pm at Tomorrowland Terrace. As always, Dave’s site is a fantastic resource for information on the resorts in particular. Steve follows with great advice for military families looking to save money and/or stay at the Shades of Green Resort. He also heads my security detail.

The meet is part of our worldwide* effort to promote what is still Amazon’s highest-rated Walt Disney World guidebook series of all time. We’d be happy to sign whatever edition of the book you have or will smile and nod when you tell us that you left your copy at home.

I try very hard to be nice and I guarantee that our interaction will only be 65.2%-75.8% as awkward as you expect.

You can find us up here and to the right at 5:30pm this Sunday. We look forward to seeing you!
