Theme: The Disney Days of Summer
Today was our last day with our Adventures By Disney group as we finished exploring Ireland. We had a great ride out to see the Cliffs of Moher and the surrounding countryside. Each family wrote a limerick to share at the farewell dinner. We look forward to sharing all our experiences with you over the next few weeks as we return to the states and wash all our clothes. For now here is our limerick and a photo….
Our Adventures have been a lot of fun.
Even though we didn’t see much of the sun.
A big Thanks to Kristin and Kelley.
Who through snacks and great restaurants, kept their promise and filled our belly.
And in true Walt Disney style, we will not say Good Bye, so See You all Real Soon as our Adventure is done.
Our Favorite Food This Week: Guinness Stew
Location: Guinness Storehouse (Dublin Ireland)
Price: Included with your Adventures by Disney trip
We continue on our Ireland trip and it’s going fast, so I won’t spend too much time explaining today. But yesterday we went on a tour of the Guinness Storehouse and were able to sample fresh Guinness. We also had an amazing lunch including Guinness Stew, along with potatoes, rice, and veggies. This was a hearty lunch and really felt good on a chilly rainy day.
We have had a great two days here in Dublin, Ireland. We elected to come 1 day early to help us get used to the time change, so we have spent the last two days touring the city of Dublin and met up with the Adventures By Disney Group tonight. Here are a few shots for you to enjoy, a full trip report will come after we return.
Our Favorite Food This Week: Wild Mushroom Filet Mignon
Location: Le Cellier (Epcot – Canada World Showcase)
If you hungry for a steak and you are at Epcot, look no further than Canada and Le Cellier restaurant. I’m not a big fan of mushrooms, but this is one of my wife’s favorite meals at Disney World. This steak is cooked to your liking, laid on a bed of wild mushroom risotto and covered with a white truffle butter. Is your mouth watering yet? The atmosphere at Le Cellier is very relaxing is its darker and designed to look like a wine cellar.
In the Toy Story Midway Mania at Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure, how many seconds do you spend at each scene (Plate breaking, Popping Balloons, etc…) ? 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds???
In Toy Story Midway Mania, only 30 seconds are spent at each of the scenes. Yes I know it feels like 10 seconds sometimes. There is just not enough time to break al the plates. The total ride time is only 5 minutes as over 150 computers are used behind the scenes to process all the animation and pulls on each guests spring action shooter.
Today’s Hidden Mickey Monday is from Hollywood Studios Toy Story Mania attraction queue. As you pass Mr. Potato Head and are on the home stretch of the line, take a look to the left before grabbing your 3D glasses and you just may spot this Hidden Mickey. Did you know over 1 million virtual plates are broken on this attraction on a daily basis? What is your favorite challenge, ring toss, plate breaking, or balloon popping?
Our Favorite Food This Week: Nutella and fresh fruit waffle sandwich
Location: Sleepy Hollow Refreshments (Magic Kingdom)
Funnel cakes are great for a sugar high, but if you want something a little more substantial you might want to head to Sleepy Hollow at the Magic Kingdom and try the delicious and fulfilling Nutella and fresh fruit waffle sandwich. This snack is a thick freshly baked waffle covered with hazelnut nutella spread and topped with fresh vibrant fruit. That’s right, Mom and Dad, unlike most park snacks, this one has nutritional value. It’s a great snack for two or even a small meal for one.
Release Date: Aug 9,2013
A new trailer for Disney Planes has been released. I am still a little bit on the fence on this one but am getting a bit warmer. These trailers are pretty funny so that is helping to push me over to the “must see when this comes out” camp. Below is the latest trailer with a few funny spots, fingers crossed that these trailers aren’t stealing all the thunder from the movie. Head over to the official Disney Planes Movie site to meet Dusty and the rest of the crew. What do you think – will you be first in line to see this one?
