Today is the day my fatself is super happy because we are headed to the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival! If you don’t know what it is, it’s basically a bunch of different countries that you walk to instead of fly and try food from their culture, it’s amazeballs. They also have gluten free items at most of the countries so you glutenators can join in the fun. This will be a large blog post, if you missed Day 1 go back one blog post! Enjoy yourself.
Day 1 Continued: See previous post for flight in & airport grub sesh. Read below for my full report on Disney’s epic resort Port Orleans and a trip to Disney Springs, dinner at Raglan Road, and a few other adventures.
This is where the real magic starts and it all hits you, YEEEEE.
Found our resort sign, time to turn.
I found this resort online and doing my research, especially for people who are gluten-free and allergic to certain things, even though most resorts have all the specifics for allergen people. However, the gluten free beignets are what got me most interested in staying here, even though they are at the Orleans side it was a quick drive. Also before you stay here you must watch the movie “The Princess and the Frog” It’s a Disney movie that this hotel is based on, glad I watched it before we stayed here.
This week’s blog posts will be all Disney, they will entail my week trip to Disney World and Universal Studios, and a stay at the Royal Guest Rooms at Port Orleans. I was thinking of doing a day by day, but there are a lot of photos so I will do it kind of like that but multiple day posts so one blog post doesn’t get to filled up! So stay tuned this week and keep checking back for updates. Let’s get to the pre-flight and airport snack while waiting for our parents to get off their flight. Also I will be making a cool video trip report.
This was a week before our trip, I found an epic 45th Aniv edition Magic Band online for our trip, limited to 4,500 and might sounds at each entry point.
This is when we go to the terminal and were waiting for my parents to get off their flight, only one of them knew we were coming, totally surprised the pops.
Think this was Johnny Carinos while we were waiting for their arrival, not many gluten free options at the airport locations.
Lady had a huge pizza, finished that herself, haha.
Ok stay tuned for Day 1 continued where we review Port Orleans Riverside
Got in my new Disney Scented candles from Anthology, I’ve already done a post on them previously just wanted to share thoughts on these new scents. I bought Soarin Over, Rome Burning, and Pineapple Whip, now each one correlates with a Disney favorite as you probably know.
The Soaring Over, eh smells like oranges but mostly just put it out after 30 minutes because it’s so powerful and overwhelming. Dole Whip is also the same way real powerful but scent is pretty good for awhile. Now my favorite is Rome Burning which is just like the ride on Spaceship Earth at EPCOT, it’s one of my favorites and is probably the best scented candle they have to remind you of it!
Goodearth, the Disneyland of Garden, Shrubs, and what not stuff!
After we checked out Goodearth made a quick stop to the Pantry (a german spot) in West Little Rock, check out my review of the Pantry here.
Just a photo of our libations, this one was $13 and tasted like horse piss.
Check out this video I found on Disney Tokyo that is from one of my favorite Vloggers (user: Thingamavlogs) check them out if you haven’t, these guys n gals check out all the latest cool stuff at Disneyland as well as Tokyo Disney most recently. Some of the food items here have blown my mind and wish Disney World in the USA would pick up their theme game because Tokyo Disney takes to all new level, need to book a trip here ASAP. If you want to see what Disney looks like on drugs basically and upping their game check it out.
‘ve wanted some of these Disney inspired Anthology candles for awhile since I’ve seen them online, Buzzfeed, you name it and they have over 5K reviews saying they really do smell like Disney. So today I received in the mail my candles and smelt the “Rome Burning” which really smelt like EPCOT Spaceship Earth Rome burning portion of the ride and was amazed. You can also find and play the YouTube soundtrack for Spaceship earth for added effect and think you are actually there. These candles are legit and worth your $14 per candle price and they also accept PayPal.
Haunted Manor, Rome, Black Pearl, and a Wizards Sample pack are the ones I bought
Go purchase them at their website or on their etsy page. They are located in Charleston, South Carolina, when I visited there wasn’t a Anthology Candles I found so I’m guessing they don’t have a retail brick and mortar store yet.
Before our flight left at 7PM we decided to check out Hollywood Studios, none the less it was the day of the Star Wars release movie, so we got a super sweet free pin! Also saw Mr. Golds Pawn Shop from Once Upon a Time. Was a good morning, especially when you drink on some scrooge juice. Didn’t take my big camera this day due to the rain which shortly stopped after we arrived of course, so just have a few shots. Check em out!
First stop is taking photos of Pizza Planet from Toy Story!
Let’ go to EPCOT! After a few days now in Florida the feet start to hurt and me wanting to go to my favorite theme park in the world EPCOT is now here, I’m pumped as fuck for this adventure and I absolutely love traveling the world all in an afternoon. Let’s get to the DOME!
Looks like it’s going to be a busy day.
Onwards to this journey of Epcot, “The Land”, Germany, China, Japan, who knows?!
