I feel like I’ve had an off couple of weeks. Not really a struggle, but things just aren’t really aligning the way I want them to, and ordinary or routine things seem difficult. Meh.
At least it was surprisingly cool yesterday in New York — mid-60s, my kinda weather — and I got a decent run in before the temperature spiked again (I just got in from a run now and while it was all right, it was more uncomfortable than yesterday … I could feel the humidity rising).
ANYWAY. I wanted to save these roundup posts for the weekends but it shall be my Friday post because LIFE, you know?
Here are some things I wrote about recently:
I scored a coveted dinner ADR at Be Our Guest, but I can’t say the experience lived up to my expectations.
I reviewed “It’s Kind of a Cute Story,” by famed Imagineer Rolly Crump, as told to Jeff Heimbuch.
I took a lot of blurry pictures of Yehaa Bob’s frantic performance at the River Roost during my last stay at Port Orleans-Riverside and threw them all in a post with no explanation. What is there to say about Yehaa Bob that hasn’t already been said?
Here are some posts I loved reading:
The Disney Food Blog posted a whole gallery of all the popcorn available across the parks! Honestly, popcorn is one of my all-time favorite foods, but I rarely eat it at WDW … I guess because I am rather enamored of the stuff I make myself and want to spend my time and money feasting on something that I don’t eat for dinner like once a week at home. But I HAVE always wanted that R2-D2 souvenir bucket…
Speaking of snacks, the Disney Tourist Blog had a huge post on all the incredible-looking snacks available at Tokyo Disneyland. I’m not a huge fan of bubble tea, but I’m not sure I’d be able to resist Mickey-shaped tapioca pearls. And I definitely want Toy Story alien mochi! Adorbs.
This Happy Place Blog posted thoughts on the Disney Channel’s “Teen Beach Movie.” While I didn’t get to see this gem due to my work schedule, I did join Estelle and Melissa of Mouse on the Mind and Erica for post-film drinks (which are a requirement, I think, if you’re going to watch a Disney Channel original movie).
It’s always hard to predict a race finishing time, especially when it’s a runDisney race with all the awesome sights and distractions. Jenn and Moon at The Fairest Run of All talk about their predictions and goals for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon.
Sarah of Running at Disney tackled something I’ve been meaning to write about forever: “same but different” attractions at Disneyland and WDW. I need to corral my California-based BFF into doing some kind of comparison, wherein we staunchly defend our West Coast and East Coast parks.
