It was my first time at the DVC member lounge inside Epcot.
I loved it!
The entrance is kind of hidden, since you have to go inside the figment store to get there. And the figment store is pretty much hidden behind the ride.
Free unlimited soda, air-conditioning, cozy seats, in a really large area for Bubba to run around in. I hope they’ll make more lounges in different theme parks.
Before Hurricane Matthew comes tomorrow, Bubba and I went to Animal Kingdom for a few hours today.
I figured it would be really un-crowded. And I was right!
As we turned left from the tree of life right where Camp Minnie Mickey used to be, Tarzan was just hanging out all by himself. He’s never around! I think the only time I ever saw him out was at a Mickey’s Not So Scary party about 8 years ago.
I was excited to see him… Bubba, not so much.
Ha ha ha, she so scared of him. It’s hilarious.
This little Tarzan loincloth makes me laugh a little bit, because you know how they just gave Jasmine a whole new costume? No more bellydancing pans and a little bra top, she’s all covered up now. Yet Tarzan is pretty much naked.
My kid can say a few words, and one of them is “Duffy”.
Cheers to me.
Some of our friends were lucky enough to score a studio at Jambo House on the concierge level, and added us to the reservation. Even thought I had to work all day, I met them after work for some snacks, drinks and fun!
They had POG juice y’all!!! Pineapple + Orange + Juava. It’s the amazing stuff they have at Boma and O’hana (and on former Continental flights overseas). It’s simply the best!
Since Animal Kingdom isn’t my home DVC resort, I’ll never be able to snag a reservation there with out waitlisting, but I’m certainly going to try!
Bubba and I braved DAY ONE of the runDisney expo today to pick up our race packets. Normally I’d avoid day 1, but her kid’s race is tomorrow, so we had to go.
It actually wasn’t as crowded as I expected. I’ve heard rumors of people going nuts for all the merchandise, but I didn’t see any of that. However, I didn’t really walk around the vendor section of the expo. I just grabbed my race shirt and got out of there.
There was tons of cute merchandise in the packet pick up area. Check out the video for some cute official Star Wars t-shirts.
And I found 1 random runDisney vinylmation box on the floor (unopened). So, I bought it!
The past few concerts Bubba hasn’t been very well behaved.
Thankfully, she’s a big Sister Hazel fan!
This is the last year for the Osborn Family lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I think everybody is pretty devastated.
I checked it out a few days ago at 10am, and it was awesome! Obviously the lights weren’t on, but you could see all the little Disney characters that are hidden (and not so hidden) around the display.
If you’re going to be at Disney this holiday season, make an effort to check out the lights in the morning before all the crowds roll in.
