Pooh Sized Traveling – Part III Epcot – World Showcase

As I mentioned in my previous post, Pooh Sized Traveling – Part II Epcot – Future World,  Epcot is one of my most favorite parks for ease of touring and lessening our fears about not being able to fit in attractions or at shows. As we enter World Showcase we turn left to the Mexican…

Kim Possible Mission

She is serious about her mission to find the Jade Monkey.  At first I was very skeptical about the Kim Possible Missions.  Running around a country to catch the “bad guy”?  My kids had never even seen Kim Possible how could they possibly enjoy this? Was I wrong!  It is now on our must do…

Pooh Sized Traveling – Part II Epcot – Future World

We are a family of what is commonly referred to, in Disney Speak, as Pooh Sized people.  I think of myself more Ursula sized but that is for another day. We love vacationing in Walt Disney World because they try to accommodate everyone when building their parks.  My partner and I are Pooh sized, my…

Club Cool

Tucked around to the right of the large fountain in Epcot is Club Cool.  It is easy to overlook if you are not aware it is there.  It looks like a Coca-Cola store, it is, but it is much more than that. Club Cool used to be an igloo type structure that you could go…

Karamell-Kuche – Epcot

I have discovered my own little slice of heaven in Epcot.  Nestled at the edge of  the German pavilion is the Karamell-Kuche shop, selling hand-crafted caramel treats.  Now yes, it is a candy store but this was the most amazing candy store to me. The moment I walked in I wanted to bottle the smell…

La Hacienda de San Angel

May 30, 2011 This was one of the dinners we were looking most forward to as it was a new restaurant in Epcot, World Showcase and we were going to be in the restaurant during the Illuminations show. We arrived at the restaurant 20 minutes early for our 8:00 pm advanced dining reservations (ADR).  There…

On the Next to Last Day of School

On our penultimate day of school, as my son would say, I thought this quote that I photographed at the American Adventure was very appropriate. My children are looking forward to Mommy School, what I call my homeschooling during the summer and vacation breaks.  They are planning on attending a Civil War re-enactment, visiting museums…

All it Takes is a Bit of Faith and Trust…

When I saw this quote of the wall of the American Adventure building in Epcot last week I thought of how very “current” it was despite being hundreds of years old. Hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters over the past several years and the human failings in banking scandals and politics have left many feeling…

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

When I was making my ADRs for our May trip I decided to take on some of the most despised restaurants (with a few new restaurants) in Walt Disney World on this trip . After reading The DIS Boards and internet reviews we finally have our list ready to go. This is also our first…

Le Cellier to Become 2 Credits on the Disney Dining Plan

Walt Disney World has recently announced, after much speculation, that Le Cellier will become a 2 credit restaurant on the Walt Disney World Dining Plan during dinner hours. This change will not take place until March 1, 2011, but for those making Advanced Dining Reservation plans this may cause some to rethink their dining plans….

Biergarten – Dinner

December 8, 2009 Our reservations for the Biergarten were for 5:30 pm. We arrived 15 minutes early and had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation time so there was plenty of time to start off our meal with a beer while seated underneath the giant cuckoo clock in Germany. There were six in our…
