Chef Mickey's

This was a fun experience.  This was one of the best Disney buffets we have been to.  The Parmesan mashed potatoes are a must try.  The Mickey shaped raviolis where also pretty good.  I had the carved turkey and my husband had the fish.  He said it was quite good.  I also liked the turkey and some cranberry sauce to go with.  The best dessert in either of our opinions was the key lime tart.  The characters did spend time at our table and would probably rank in top three out of character dining experience.  The number one spot still goes to Garden Grill with Chip and Dale, Farmer Mickey and Pluto though because it seems like the characters spent more time at your table.  Also the layout of Garden Grill to circler rows I think make it easier for the characters to spend time at the tables.

Me and the Voice of Obi-Wan at Star Wars Weekend

Saturday May 21st I got to have my picture taken with James Arnold Taylor the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Star Wars:  The Clone Wars animated series as well as multiply other voices.  He was really nice and I loved the one man show Obi-Wan and Beyond he preformed at 6:00pm this last weekend I was able to catch it twice.

My gift to my Husband!

I hope he enjoyed it as much I enjoyed planning this surprise.  My husband is very hard to surprise.

Beautiful Gift from my Loving Husband!

This was the surprise my husband had for me as a gift in the room on anniversary.  This picture is beautiful but does not give the gift as much justice as it needs.  My husband is so sweet.  Here is to five years together.

Tony's Town Square at the Magic Kingdom!

Photo taken by me May 2010.

In 2010 me and my husband had dinner at Tony's Town Square Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom and it was the most memorable anniversary we ever had.   The staff was real friendly and super attentive and they made sure that this would be an anniversary that we would never forget.  We arrived shortly before our reservation and we where promptly seated near the Lady and the Tramp fountain.   The manger then came to our table and asked if we where huge Lady and the Tramp fans.  And I told her we where because the scene where Lady and the Tramp eat Spaghetti is one of mine and my husband's favorite scenes.   Our sever then asked my husband and me to get up and stand beside the fountain where to my surprise and joy they announced our anniversary to the whole restaurant and then had my husband roll a meatball with his nose to me on the fountain's edge.  After we were seated we got to talk with the chef who came out to bring the cake we had.  The manger then came out and presented me and my husband with a stuffed animal of Lady and the Tramp from the restaurant in honor of our anniversary.  It was all so magical that I was tearing up with joy.   Our server was super nice and helped us gather up the left over cake.  This was on the best dinning experiences we have ever had at Walt Disney World.

Some of my Favorite Rides at Disney: Part 2

Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom:   This classic attraction is well done and I am looking forward to the upgrades in the hitchhiking ghosts.

Pirates of the Caribbean at Magic Kingdom:  Another classic attraction not to miss.   One of my favorite parts is Davy Jones and "Dead men tell no tales".

Mission Space at Epcot, Orange Version:  Very realistic love the feeling at take off.  Not for those prone to motion sickness.  The only ride at Walt Disney World to have motion sickness bags in it.  Also do not eat a big meal before this ride "your stomach might not like you"  after the ride if you do.

Some of My Favorite Rides at Walt Disney World: Part 1

Splash Mountain at Magic Kingdom:  A nice ride to go on that is an exciting thrill. Best and wettest seat is the first row of the flume. rub the bunny for luck. Also nice to cool off in the hot Florida sun.

Test Track at Epcot:   One of my top two favorite rides at Epcot.    Fastest ride at Disney and to me one of the smoothest.   This ride host a interesting Queue line.   Remember to smile for the cameras.

Dinosaur at Animal Kingdom:   Best seat is to the far inside.   The dinosaurs appear much closer.   This is fun and thrilling a ride that is very dark and you are immersed with all your senses on this ride.

Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  The only ride at Walt Disney World to make me scream  after four visits I finally went on this one and was shocked and pleasantly surprised at the storyline and other effects rather than just the straight up and down drops which are scary but fun.  I have a great picture of me screaming and holding on for dear life during the ride.

Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom:   This fun raft ride surprises you on who will get the wettest.  Just make sure to but all belongings that you do not want to get wet in the center of the raft because you will get wet.

Star Tours at Disney Hollywood Studios:  The old one was great but we will see how the new one opening May 20th is.  I am sure looking forward to the re-opening.  And sure that the ride will not disappoint Star Wars fans.
