So this is basically the entire reason for the trip, “Hey want to go get drunk at the Food and Wine Festival in Orlando?” I mean who says no. It’s always a damnit let’s go book it kind of situation. So let’s go explore the gluten free side of the Food & Wine Festival. I didn’t document it nearly as hardcore as I usually do but I still put in some effort of photographing food for myself.
I’ve never been and always thought it was a kids thing but fuck I was wrong, this thing is LIT. It’s like a trip fest of visuals and effects. I should have known better for Disney, damn. Well I am glad I went and gave us time to knock out Magic Kingdom without having to come back during the day. Also basically no lines for the rides, weather was good, and major crowds were gone! The best part of the trip!
So we had an original trip planned to Switzerland but got cancelled due to family things so instead when you need to be cheered up, what’s a better place to go than the happiest place on earth!

So at the end of day 5 we flew British Airways to Paris to spend the next 3 days exploring Paris, Disneyland Paris, and to find some gluten free baguettes! It ended up being an awesome journey and even cooler place than I thought. Disneyland Paris has the top ranking of ride themes in my opinion so far. The food eh not so much. Check it out in the video vlog below! I’ll have to say it’s worth a visit to Disneyland Paris, not as magical as home base in Orlando but still, Paris has it’s charms. Also this video encompasses 2 days, since on the 29th we did the original Disneyland Paris Park, and then on the 30th we did the Studios Park which was eh, ok.
Couple things, why the fuck did they change the recipe of the butterbeer, it tasted like garbage the day we went. That is my main complaint for the entire day at Universal, it had me so mind boggled. The foam on top was shitty as well and not that candy flavor. Bullshit. Anyways, let’s begin!
If you have ever wanted to go on a guided fishing excursion at Walt Disney World I will present you with some knowledge. It can be a fun in the sun adventure if you love to fish and the outdoors. You typically wake up at 9AM and meet up with your guide at the resort around 10AM and off you go, the resorts vary.
They go over a few basic rules then you launch out. I’ve been three times on this excursion. The first two times were awesome, the feeling of being VIP cruising through Seven Seas Lagoon and around the resorts is amazing and refreshing while in Florida.
Our last adventure our guide Sean was a total asshole, don’t know how he even has this job. If you get a good guide everything is awesome and fun, usually they bait your hook, help you cast, teach you the good spots, etc. This guy was like a lazy piece of shit who didn’t say or help worth a shit, and then when we asked he was just was so apathetic it was useless to even bother. However we still had a great time. It costs around $300 for 2-5 people for 2 hours and then your suppose to tip your captain as well. Check out the photos below for the fishing adventure.
WDW Trip Report Day 3: We visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! Was a lot like the Food & Wine Festival except the fact they had a bunch more flowers and topiaries at every turn. The merchandise was eh okay but still can’t find a 2018 poster, GRR! However, check out the adventure below. Also had dinner at Akershus House in Norway. The F&G Festival takes place every year sometime between Feb 28th-May 28th with several events, presentations all on flower & garden topics.
So day 2 at WDW starts at the Grand Floridian for breakfast at the 1900 Park Fare. Being gluten free Disney is good at any place, but why here? Well we had kids this trip and this is the hottest breakfast spot currently according to reservations/tripadvisor etc. The character breakfast is also on point and the characters make a good round, the food was also pretty good. Not as good as Crystal Palace but good. Also a quick tip, it’s easy to navigate the parks since we had a reservation here, we got to park here and jump on the monorail straight to the parks which makes it super easy.
Finally the countdown is over and we get to go back to Disney World! The most magical place on Earth. But I think the waiting part is part of the magical journey. I will be posting daily blogs of our trip report and updating. Today we flew in from Little Rock and met up with the rest of our family then checked into our “Magical Vacation Home” and then decided to hit up Disney Springs.
I will review each aspect including the Magical Home part as well! So stick along this week and feel free to ask any questions. There will be a lot of photos and I’ll put some explanations at the bottom. I wanted to do a seperate post on reviewing the Magical Vacation Homes experience but I think I’ll just leave feedback under each photo.
