Mmm, the food looks delicious! I haven't done WPE before. Well, I did the one over on West Side but it has a seriously limited menu so I don't think that counts My husband would adore the creme brulee cheesecake - his two favorite desserts in one!

And I am loving your pictures of Kidani. My husband's uncle was nice enough to hook us up with his DVC for our next trip, and I am so unbelievably excited to be staying there!!

Yay another Frump report! Can't wait to read more. We were there last August as well, but we left on the 9th. Ugh craving some of that WPE mac and cheese right now!

Joining in! Loving your reviews so far. And always glad to hear about a good time in August - this will be the first year that we brave the summer heat at WDW.

Following along for sure!! Can't wait to read all about where you ate. We have ADR's in August for Boma, The Plaza Restaurant, Kona, and Raglan Road. We've never done any ADR's, so this will be an all new experience for my family. By the way, i'm @kkatiecud from twitter

Hey Kristen! Subbing in! I've followed Jess's reports nearly religiously, and I'm so excited to follow yours too! I love your writing and photos, can't wait to see more!

Just found this report- so excited because I LOVE Disney food. (Okay, who DOESN'T? lol) I have to admit that I haven't eaten at WPE but I am all over that mac and cheese when I go in August.

PS I was in WDW the same dates last year!

The hotel we stay at in NC has biscuits and gravy for breakfast, and I am a HUGE FAN.

Yeah it's quite the adventure but we do drive! I love getting further south too. It just feels like going home.


Personally, I totally think it's socially acceptable to eat guacamole with a spoon. I mean, if Paula Deen can go crazy with a stick of butter, we can do the same with guacamole! Plus, guac is way healthier anyway! Haha. I'm the kind of person who will order something on the menu just because it comes with guac or avocado on it. It's an addiction. Try smushed avocado on a toasted bagel ... DELICIOUS! It's what I use instead of cream cheese due to being lactose intolerant.

Yay for KIDANI! It has my all-time favorite restaurant ... Sanaa! Delish!

Can you finish that entire pizza from WPE? It looks SO good that I want to try it, but it'd only be for me because my husband doesn't like goat cheese.
That's a valid point! I am the same exact way. I'll have to try that bagel tip, sounds delish!

Yes! I love that place.

If I'm really hungry I can. I've done it before.

Wolfgang looked wonderful. I loved Scott modeling the Donald hat and shirt. Your Mom is so pretty, I love her smile. Your sister and you obviously have a good relationship, your photo's together are great!

Yes! Thank you so much!

He's a frump. She is beautiful, I know. (: I love my little sis!


I am really enjoying all of your photo's. I think this TR has had the best photo's of the resort I've seen. Lightning through the lobby windows of that resort must have been so cool to see.

Looking forward to future posts. Thanks again for sharing. Read you soon.
Wow! Thank you so much! It was definitely cool.

You are so welcome!

Excuse me while I die over your food from WPE.
I love Wegmans. It's perfect.

Oh I know right?

SO. YUMMY.

Oh, and for what it's worth, I too would eat guacamole with a spoon if it was socially acceptable! And, like a PP, I find myself choosing items from the menu just because they have guacamole or avocado in them.

I'm off to read your previous TRs. I want read more about your adventures!
Thank you so much! It's sooo good.

Yes! It's just so good.

YAY! More updates are coming soon.

I don't know if there is anything more uplifiting than seeing that WDW sign coupled with the Angel harp music (that I know everybody hears) as you drive underneath. Perfection!!!!

Loving it thus far. Thanks for including some regular TR stuff along with the DR stuff.
LOL.

Not at all hahah.

It really is.

Thank you so much!

Aaaah I'm so glad you stayed at Kidani, my family and I are staying there for the first time with our DVC points in December and I'm so excited after seeing your pictures! We've got a standard view too, I was really disappointed we couldn't get a savannah but after seeing your view I'm hopeful!

Your WGP pictures are making me so hungry, we plan on eating there on our first night, I can't wait to try that pizza, the mac and cheese looks amazing too. The rainforest cafe is amazing too! I miss disney food so much!
Haha, it's an ambitious trek.

Oh you are going to LOVE it! I hope you get a nice view.

Definitely a great first night place!

And we have a Panera Bread near us and I've never stepped food in there. Those bagels looks incredible. I think I'm gonna make a stop in there soon, just for research of course.
Thank you!

Definitely do!

I've recently gotten my fiancé hooked on reading TRs and especially those with lots of DISNEY FOOD, so we are so excited for your TR, in particular!

Thanks for taking the time to bring a little joy and pixie dust to your readers! 🙏
Yay well thanks for reading!

Looking forward to reading the rest of your report
Oh just go for it and get both! It's vacation!

Hi there! Thank you! It is! I would love any ideas that you have! Feel free to DM me! I always love hearing what the best places to eat are from locals when I travel. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising.

Chapter 4: Our Magical Morning!

August 16th, 2012

Hello everyone! So sorry about my extended absence, life has been so crazy! In the last few weeks I have finished school, finals, had Prom, graduation, my last play and a stomach flu. And I got my wisdom teeth out this week, so you could say that things have not been entirely too pleasant. However, it gives me a chance to do some updates before I go to Disney in just 5 DAYS!!! I can't even believe it. I'm so excited!!!!!! I hope I'm feeling better in time. Anyway, I've gotta get a move on on this DR so I can finally start my Christmas trip report before this Christmas! And then stay tuned for my Disneyland TR and probably another DR for my THREE WEEK trip this August! As for the trip next week, Jess will be including our adventures in her CP Diary, so check it out there! And now, on with August!

------------------------------------------------------------------

We woke up on our first full Disney day and headed to the Magic Kingdom!



We had a wonderful morning that consisted of Neverland, Eeyore's Gloomy Place, and a Mad Tea Party.







We also checked out the new Dumbo. Sarah, who is a HUGE Dumbo fan, was freaking out. From the peanuts in the pavement (seriously, the genius) to the fountains and new play while you wait area, she was thrilled.



We also had to ride the Barnstormer.



The subtle humor. I love it.

Going up!



We also had some Tomorrowland fun, which included the Carousel of Progress, Buzz (on which Sarah's score was ridiculously high and she had no idea how she was doing it) and a ride on the TTA!





Soon it was time for lunch, so it was off to Liberty Square and the Columbia Harbour House!





Mom got the Fried Shrimp Platter, which was fresh and yummy!



Scott enjoyed the Broccoli Peppercorn Salad, which was a nice deviation from your typical salad.



Sarah got the Fried Fish Platter, which she loved!



I got the salmon with couscous and broccoli, which was delicious! Such a great CS option. It was so good! So fresh and tasty.



We enjoyed the Disney signature CS chocolate cake and the not-so-common apple crisp for our desserts.





After lunch, we hit up my favorite attraction, the beloved Haunted Mansion.



Yes that is a Haunted Mansion bow. (:



I love hanging out in the graveyard.

After we said hello to my grinning ghost friends, we did some Emporium shopping and headed back to Kidani.



Once we got back, Scott and Sarah headed down to the pool for a swim while Mom and I walked around the resort and visited the pool bar to fill our mugs.



It was moderately busy at the pool. Typical summer afternoon.



Scott and Sarah were having a blast on the pool slide!





After a while we went back up, got cleaned up and headed off to EPCOT!



Continued in Next Post
