Free Dining, Pt 3: A Visit To Artist Point

Posted on
Our final Free Dining Plan table service meal was at Artist Point, in the Wilderness Lodge. I had eaten there about 10 years ago as well, probably on the same trip as the San Angel Inn meal, and remembered being underwhelmed by the menu. I don’t really care for game meats, and their signature Cedar … Continue reading "Free Dining, Pt 3: A Visit To Artist Point"

Free Dining, Pt 1: A Flashback To The 50’s

Posted on
Those of you who read my column regularly may have noticed that I do not care much for the Magic Your Way Dining Plan and believe that it will soon be the downfall of civilization as we know it.

Dining at Cafe Orleans

Posted on
Last year Cafe Orleans at Disneyland was remodeled, and reopened last summer as a table service restaurant instead of the buffeteria it had been before. We ate breakfast there a few months ago and dinner recently, so I thought I’d post a review of the two dining experiences. For breakfast we were there on a … Continue reading "Dining at Cafe Orleans"

Quick weekend trip to Disneyland

Posted on
I made a quick weekend trip to Disneyland and actually spent the night up there for a change – mainly because I was doing the Segway tour which started at 7:15 a.m., and would have meant getting up *really* early if I left from San Diego! I met my friend Patty at my hotel on … Continue reading "Quick weekend trip to Disneyland"

Finally the day came when Carol could “legally” wear her “Happy Birthday” button. We decided to try something different today so we went to the dock to take the Riverboat Cruise to Downtown Disney, as mentioned on the WDW Today channel in our hotel room.

Day 8 — A Very Sunny Sunday

Posted on
Put your hands together because I actually got out of bed on this morning at around 5:30, put on my running gear and went out at 5:45 to run around the resort. It had been at least a week since my last workout and I had no idea what to expect. My whole body was … Continue reading "Day 8 — A Very Sunny Sunday"
