emme & i rockin our matching [expandable] tutus. INTRO: hello! my name is patty and my daughter's name is emme (age 3). we love heading down to disney whenever we can & absolutely love our time together. life has been really hectic so being able to get away at disney is truly special. although our trips are short (mostly weekend trips), we (more so, just me) still manage to stuff our faces silly with disney food. we have returned from our quick trip (10/17-10/20) down to disney & i wanted to share my food experiences and also throw in some various trip photos as well. we attended MNSSHP (14 straight hours at MK...new record!), had a lovely meal at the refurbished california grill and survived the brutal heat & crowd on saturday at epcot for food & wine fest! i think i will make this thread my fall/winter food updates as there will be a few more trips before the year is over. there is a special trip in december planned but if all goes well, i'm hoping to sneak in a trip in november. the heat was too tremendous and i did not bring my DSLR camera to the parks with me. all these pics are taken from my iphone. once the weather cools down, i will bring back my DSLR but right now, it's retired (for now). hope you enjoy & read along. happy eating!!
