~Good food is like music you can taste...F&W 2012~ Finished 11/30 & DEC TRIP POSTED!

"Good food is like music you can taste, color you can smell" - Gusteau, Ratatouille

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my latest Dining Review even though I haven't finished my April 2012 review...

We are heading to WDW from Oct 7th - 13th for my absolute favorite time of the year....Fall and Food & Wine Festival! This will be our 5th trip to the F&W festival and have decided to dedicate all our time to the booths, no events, no seminars and only 1 signature meal in the entire trip.

Life has been so hectic since my last WDW trip! I am in my 5th month of a 16 month MBA program and to say it is intensive is an understatement! I am up to my eyeballs in case studies, presentations, assignments and textbooks, but I am loving every minute.

As a result of my hectic schedule, this review is going to be PHOTO-heavy and TEXT-light!

Can't wait for your reviews! I haven't been to the F&W festival since 2002 (and I only tried one booth then - South Africa), so I'm really looking forward to seeing your pics from so many of the booths.

So much to do!!!

Hi All! I can't believe that I'm heading back to WDW in just 12 DAYS!!!!

However, my TO DO list before then is daunting to say the least.....


Meg's TO DO before Florida
Corporate Social Responsibility Reflection Paper
Corporate Social Responsibility Assignment
Finance Labs 2 & 3
Research Methods PowerPoint Presentation
Research Methods Assignment Part 1
Human Resources Case Analysis
Human Resources Group Project Part 1
Career Assignment
Strategy PowerPoint Presentation
Strategy Case Analysis


Can we say They really weren't kidding when they said that time management was a key element of doing an MBA! Thankfully I have started working on each and every one of those items AND I have today & tomorrow off class to work on them.

I'm tuned in to Magical Mouse Radio on Live365 (It's Background Loop Tuesday! and right now it is playing Stacey's Top 7 Countdown ) and I am determined to make that list significantly smaller!

I'll check back later to let you guys know how it's going!

The school work is nuts lol, but I only have a week of classes left now. This weekend I'm going to knock the rest of the items off the list.
