Got up mad early for Epcot’s extra magic hour, but basically blew the whole thing trapped on Test Track. Got free fast passes to come back later, soon as we got to the design room, the dang thing broke down again! But we successfully drank around the world, said goodbye to Maelstrom, and experienced some dang delicious food at the Food & Wine festival. (My fave: the keffta pocket in Morocco.) After IllumiNations, we snuck over to the Beach Club for a nightcap and sighed over their superior pool. Some day I’ll get back there. Someday.

Bye forever, Maelstrom! :(

Current status: gazing longingly at Storm-Along Bay.

Bass Ale in the UK. #drinkaroundtheworld

Also, I’ve seen so many little Elsas everywhere I’m just going to die.

Watching a bunch of little girls light up at meeting Mulan. The best. Even I, the child hater, cannot deny how cute they are.

Passion fruit and pineapple margaritas at fake Mexico. #drinkaroundtheworld

I said, “Do something Viking-y.” Carlsberg beer in fake Norway. (at Epcot - Walt Disney World)

Best trip to Magic Kingdom ever??? Possibly. Got there just in time for the end of the opening ceremony, walked onto Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, Pirates, and Splash Mountain!! Then breakfast, Haunted Mansion, New Fantasyland, etc. Hit Splash Mountain again, then got in line for Big Thunder just as it started to rain. Got soaked, way more than on Splash Mountain, and it was the most fun I’ve ever had.

Capped the night off with the worst Patriots game ever, though, so trying to reclaim my Big Thunder in the rain high somehow.

Oh no, we only got like six hours of sleep last night, so it is going to be impossible to wake Allison up in like 10 minutes. But it’s Magic Kingdom day!!

Also I’m not going to flood you with pictures here, but if you want to see my Disney pics, I’m electricjb on Instagram.

Successful day one. Checked in to perfect princess room at Port Orleans - Riverside, had a drink by the pool, and then on to Hollywood Studios! We rode Tower of Terror twice, Fantasmic made me cry, and everyone kept telling me they loved my Lego Frozen shirt. Got caught in the rain shutting down the park. Feet are killing me.

My favorite part of this room is the sink.
