A Stop in Adventurers Outpost

Sometimes I just get the urge to meet characters. (I never thought I would be a person who said this.) In the middle of a solo Animal Kingdom trip in November, I stopped in to say hello to my Up friends and wondered: “Did Mickey and Minnie have their holiday sweaters on yet?” Your mind does weird things […]

A Suite Stay at Art of Animation

Lately, my vacations have led me to many stays at Pop Century — which has become a surprising home away from home. But it’s always a treat when the opportunity pops up to try a new resort at Walt Disney World. So when planning a group trip for November meant a stay at the Art […]

Fabulous Forty | Carousel of Progress

This week, yesterday to be exact, the good old Carousel of Progress turned the big 4-0. If this was a normal anniversary, I’d be buying the entire attraction rubies. But, well, because I’m low on cash and have a good heart… I’ll say some heartfelt words instead. I mean, I’ve already done that over and over […]

You’re a Mean One | Kill Refurb Marry

We’re BACK! Did you miss us? I mean, it’s only been a month so you don’t have to act obsessed with us or anything. (I kid, I kid.) Melissa & I are pumped for a new year of snarky and creative posts. So tell your friends! Tell your mom. Let’s make this the biggest year […]

Dear Rizzo | Muppet Monday

A few weeks ago, we rewatched Muppets Most Wanted; it was the first time we opened our Bluray since we bought it release week. I’m always a little worried that I won’t love it as much as I did the two times we saw it in the theaters but if anything, in the comfort of […]

Hats Off (Literally)

Hats don’t work for everyone. Take me for example. I always want to look good in hats, and even though history has dictated this fashion accessory is not for me, every winter I comb the stores, looking ridiculous in search of the perfect hat. Do I learn? No, not really. My quest for this unattainable […]

G is for Goodbye | Muppet Monday

A few weeks ago, we went to a Muppet event at the Museum of the Moving Image (shocker, right?) featuring Sesame Street parodies. I never realized how many parodies have actually come out of Sesame Street and I was even more surprised to see the one I’m going to talk about today. It definitely proves how […]

Hark! A Happy (& Busy) 2014

Here we are again. Another pesky year comes to an end. It’s difficult to sum up an entire year when you are in denial that it’s just about finished, and a new one will be starting. 2014 has definitely been an interesting one: full of new experiences, lots of change, and, as always, many lessons […]

State of the Parks | 2014

I love “end of year” lists. So after 3 trips to WDW in 2014, I’m looking forward to pitting the parks against one another and chat about the best and worst decisions regarding each of them. Let’s jump right in… The bad: The construction walls are a bit hard to take around the hub (but I […]

Pros & Cons of 2014 | Muppet Monday

It’s the last Monday of 2014 and I think it’s only fitting to chat about how the Muppets fared this year. This was on my mind this past weekend as we made another trip to Museum of the Moving Image to check out The Muppet Family Christmas. If I can count the Muppet highlights of […]
