It’s been a long time since I’ve done a book report. So please don’t grade this. Well, I’ve been wanting to start my Disney library for some time and my Secret Santa this year helped me get a good start on it. One of the books I asked for was, The Vault of Walt by Jim Korkis, because I have heard Jim speak several times on various podcasts and I have read some of the articles he has written on various Disney themed websites. I always enjoy listening to his plethora of stories. They are very detailed, interesting because of the subject matter, and entertaining because of how he tells them. In addition, I always appreciate the depth of research Jim has put into learning these stories well enough to share them with the public. He often states that when he first hears a story, he makes sure to verify it by two or three independent sources to confirm its accuracy. He won’t share a story until he is sure of its veracity. Nevertheless, Jim is humble enough to also contend that there is always more to a story. I love that just because he may publish a story, he doesn’t give up on it. There is always more to learn and he has a passion for sharing that knowledge with the interested public, like me.
In Honor of National Pancake Day today, I thought it would be appropriate to list my ten favorite breakfast choices at Walt Disney World. Now, anyone who knows me is saying, “What? You don’t even get up in time for breakfast. How can you have ten favorite ones?” And while this is usually true at home, when you’re at Walt Disney World, there’s no time for sleeping half the day away, especially not when you’re with kids. And besides, I actually really enjoy breakfast foods. So here are the ten breakfast options that make it worth getting out of bed early around Walt Disney World!

Disneyland is a great park, arguably a better park than the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. But even though we spent three days at the Disneyland Resort recently, I still wouldn’t consider it a bonafide vacation destination by itself. At Walt Disney World, not only are there four parks, but there’s also water parks, mini-golf courses, resorts to visit, and dozens of dining experiences all over the property. You can’t fit everything in, even in a week. At Disneyland most people drive in or walk over for a full day of rides and attractions solely in the parks. It seems that the park is designed for that type of guest as well.
1. Ride All The Rides | Just because the kids aren’t there doesn’t mean I’m not going to have fun. In fact, I would take advantage of the “Single Rider” line and hopefully go on more rides. No kids to slow me down, baby! Tower of Terror, Toy Story Midway Mania, Flight of Passage, Test Track, Big Thunder, Space & all the mountains, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peoplemover, It’s A Small World, even Frozen Ever After. That’s right! Watch out, here I come!
1. Walk More | That seems like a silly thing to say. After all, the shortest lap around Epcot itself is almost three miles. If you combine all four parks, some people have charted just a single lap “around the world” between eight to nine miles.
It wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility to walk 70 miles or more altogether for a week long vacation. My dogs are barking just thinking about it! Well, what I mean is that I would actually walk, stroll, saunter, and daudle more. I would take my time and not be in such a rush. Sure, I would still take advantage of FastPasses and all that, but I would do less criss-crossing and just enjoy attractions as I came to them.
So probably, hopefully, I would actually walk less.
When Toy Story Land opens at Hollywood Studios in Summer 2018, what will the new line up of FastPasses look like? Disney will be looking to control the flow of guests going to explore this new land and a hint of how at least the first year will look could be taken from the recent opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom.
Currently at Hollywood Studios the FastPass+ Line up is as follows:
For most who go on vacation, running a 5k is the furthest thing from their mind. This is exactly what my wife and I did though while we were honeymooning on a Disney cruise in May. No matter if you are an experienced runner or casual walker, the Disney Cruise Line Castaway Cay 5k is a fun run for all! There are some parts of the experience we wish we knew before taking part in and I am going to give you those tips!
