Wordless Wednesday Magic Kingdom Christmas

Welcome to this week's Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by the fun fun fun Focused on the Magic

Here is a pic of the Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree in December 2001 (plus my thumb lol). This was the only day we experienced the holidays in the parks because we spent one day here before leaving on the then-new Magic cruise ship!

Favorite Food Friday: Food and Wine Singapore

Welcome back to another Favorite Food Friday hosted by the dulcet Disney Day by Day!

First of all, my college mascot is a Tiger, so we HAD to get a shot of this awesome Tiger beer.  Even though I don't like beer at all and didn't buy any for myself.

I KNOW it doesn't look great - but you guys, this was one of the top three or four dishes from Food and Wine 2012: Beef Rendang with Jasmine Rice (sans rice).  No we're not low carb here at No Privacy; they were just out of rice when we went there first thing in the morning.  Or rather the rice wasn't ready yet.  Whatever,  it was REALLY GOOD.  

The Mahi Mahi with Singa sauce paled by comparison.  It was maybe a bit too firm?

Kill, Marry, Refurb: Disney World Thrill Rides

I'm joining the magnificent Mouse on the Mind for the Kill/Marry/Refurb blog hop!  This week's theme is Thrill Rides.  I'm focusing solely on Disney World (not Land) rides for this one.

1) Kill: Splash Mountain

Wah wah wah, it's a classic.  Whatever.  I hate the drop.  HATE the drop.  Plus you get wet which is sometimes uncomfortable.  Plus the line is STUPID long.  Kill it.  Murder it.  Bury it in an unmarked grave.

Honorary Mention: Tower of Terror.  Because: drops.  

2) Refurb: Expedition Everest

LOVE this ride!  The themeing is impeccable.  The thrill factor is perfect for me.  Let's just fix the bird and the Yeti and then we'll talk engagement and marriage k?

3) Marry: Space Mountain

I think I proposed to Space Mountain several years back, so it's been a long engagement, but we are happy together.  Yes, it's older and a bit creaky.  I don't mind a bumpy ride, which, so far, hasn't hurt me yet (but if it does, I reserve the right to dump this guy - no abusive relationships please!).  I LOOOOVVEEE the star tunnel music.   I love the sparklyness.  I love the Halloween overlay in the Disneyland version.  I love it all.  Let's never part Space Mountain (but I will be asking for a prenup).  We are registered at the disneystore.com.

Thanks for reading along!  Now hop on to the next stops!

Favorite Food Friday: Food and Wine Germany

Welcome back to another Favorite Food Friday hosted by the distinctive Disney Day by Day!

We're continuing my Food and Wine 2012 tour with Germany.  This booth was ultimately a disappointment. The nudels needed more flavor and the because the bun was so much thicker than the sausage, by the time you bit it down to bun size, the bread:meat ratio was way off.  The apple strudel was nothing special either.

Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop: One Last Snack for the Road

Welcome back to another Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Deb at the fabulous Focused On The Magic!  My Disneyland trip at an end, and even though I had just gotten a snack at Jolly Holiday Bakery, I had one more snack I had to try....

My very first ever corn dog!

This was from the famed corndog cart at the end of Main Street (towards the hub), and it was delicious!

With a full stomach, I finally left Disneyland.  Until we meet again, Disneyland!
