haha...I know! When is it NOT a good time for jam tarts and tea?? If I ever started a company I would most definitely serve those every lunch break.

It's definitely one of the nicest parts of staying club, especially during the summer when you know the parks will be crazy!

The MK seems to take on a whole new persona in the rain, it's still so pretty...just a little more wet! We LOVE visiting resorts we're not staying at. Disney does such a good job of making you feel at home...it feels like you belong there even if you're not staying!

We should start a petition to bring teatime back! We did not expect to love the Royal Palm Club as much as we did - definitely a new Disney favorite.

A breakfast with a little princess in it is always a good thing!

I made the mistake of directing my DW to your RPC pictures, and our next trip went from being "on the cheap" to me promising to pack a jacket for V&A. Disney should pay you a commission for everyone who upgrades their reservations after reading your trippie.

Thanks for a great peek inside the velvet rope!

Ahhhh MK. I've never seen the Tiki Room (either version) and for that, I am ashamed. Sigh!

Jungle Cruise is honestly one of my favorites! I'm all about the cheesy puns.

I love all your pictures! Yay for tea time!

LOL - they should, or if they could just comp my stay that'd be great. And WOW - V&A, that'll be amazing!

Jungle Cruise is definitely a classic. You have to get to the Tiki Room, though! I actually really miss the version with Iago and Zazu, but the original is fabulous too.

A Snobbish Disney World Music Video

I have something kinda exciting to share with you guys today.

Months and months ago, before this trip to Disney World that I've been writing about, my brother Athos and I were sitting at the computer wasting time on the internet. Somehow we wound up watching the "Put on Your Sunday Clothes" song/scene from the movie Hello Dolly, and I got to thinking. Sunday Clothes is a song that is played on Main Street, which in itself makes it Disney-ish, but when you actually listen to the lyrics, a lot of them could match up with fun Disney World sights and sounds too.

"Out there, full of shine and full of sparkle...close your eyes and see it glisten, Barnaby!"

They could totally be talking about WDW, right?

The idea was born then and there. I wanted to make a music video at Walt Disney World to go with the song, starring Athos, Dart, and me.

All throughout this Disney trip, we would occasionally stop and do some quick filming for our project. It was really fun to think out scenes to go along with the lyrics and then dance and sing along!

Finally I have finished editing all the clips - it was my first time putting together a video, so some parts are a bit rough; but I still think it came out kinda cute!

SO. Without further adieu, I present to you the premiere of:

"Put on Your Sunday Clothes - Disney Style"

Enjoy!

Hooray indeed! I quite like being back, no idea why I ever went away!! Haha. I'm all caught up on your report now (I may or may not have used luls in my work day to sit here and read it all! ) Also, I love that you're on twitter, have to love social media, makes keeping in contact so much easier!!

Everytime I read one of your reports I get so so hungry, I'm sitting here eating a chicken and salad sandwich and suddenly it becomes the worst thing ever because I can see all your disney food!! Next time you stay club level... take me?! Haha

Seriously though, I never knew they put so much food out for you to choose from, I am very impressed!! I also have a whole new level of appreciation for the Contemporary and the Grand, so beautiful and the views are amazing!

Now hurry up and write more so I can waste more (/productively use my time) of my work day!
