Video Notes: Beating the Heat at Hollywood Studios

It’s the weekend, which means we have returned to Disney World for more fun! Also Sun, which is nice in moderation. How can you get lots of Disney World without lots of heat stroke and sunburn? Click here for the video or watch it below:


We enjoyed making this video… not just because Jaime came up with a theme for the week, but because we got to check out lots of new stuff at Hollywood Studios. For example, there is a new BB-8 character experience at the Launch Bay that is in addition to the other experiences everyone already knows and loves. I was amazed at how quickly they built it.

Video Notes: Finally… Back at Epcot!

Hooray! At long last, we made it back to Disney World! Yes, I am well aware that there are people all over the place that either don’t or can’t go to Disney World every weekend, or at all. I get that. But being honest, we moved here to be closer to Disney World. We’re very fortunate to live down here and we’re very grateful. But three weeks of no Disney World was a bitter pill.

Video Notes: DeLeon Springs and Pancakes

Our Disney annual passes are still blacked out for Spring Break, and that means another opportunity to check out a place that has been on our to-do list for a while (it’s been on Jaime’s list even longer): DeLeon Springs State Park, or more to the point, the Old Spanish Sugar Mill restaurant.

Video Notes: Take a Hike With Us

Now that we’re officially blacked out from Disney World parks for two weeks, we’re taking time to check out other parts of central Florida. So today we went waaaaay up the street (10 minutes away) to the Black Bear Wilderness Area. Black bears? Wilderness? Area…? Excellent! /air guitar gesture

The official web site said that there could be bears, gators, and otters. Otters?!

Video Notes: Showcase SURVIVOR Round Two (USA vs Round 1 Winners)

Now that round one is settled, the USA steps forward and takes a turn under the white-hot spotlight of our subjective yet logical judgment. Click here for the video if it’s not showing up below:


In true FIFA style, the USA has to score high enough to break into the top four, and then advance to the final round. The bottom two pavilions (of six) will be dropped from contention,

Will USA advance? Which EPCOT pavilions will advance to the final, and which one will be crowned the Showcase SURVIVOR? The suspense… it’s so… suspenseful!
