Sharon and I have done some crazy Disney things. I once ran from park to park to park to park on Fourth of July to get a limited edition pin from each location, back when we still did the pin thing. We’ve waited outside the Animal Kingdom entry plaza in our car at 3AM to be there for the grand opening. If we had passes at the time, I would have tried to stay for the day when Magic Kingdom was open for 24 hours straight, Speaking of 24 hours, for my first trip to Disneyland, I flew from NYC to LA on a 6AM flight (waking up at 4AM) and went straight to the park for the day, staying until the the 1AM closing. That was 24 hours straight being awake with the time change. “What’s jet lag?” I asked at the time?
However, the task that Ed from Pizza in Motion and Summer (Mommy Points) from TPG Family are attempting to complete is simply insane. The only thing keeping me from saying they’re crazy is that they’re using the challenge to raise money for one of the most wonderful charities in Central Florida.
Caroline from Frugal Travel Guy wrote about the best places to stay in Cuba on points and miles. The hotels available for points redemption are slim if you are an American who can even visit under the current travel restrictions. Personally, I’d strongly suggest staying at a casa particular instead of a chain resort. You can go to any island in the Caribbean and stay at a resort. If you’re going to Cuba, spend some time with the people. You’ll never forget it.
Have you ever been on a flight where the person sitting near you is eating something that has a strong smell?. You know, something fishy, spicy or just nasty smelling? Well, what if you’re inadvertently that person? Road Warriorette was in that position and you can read about how she handled it.
Not to be outdone by is sister park on the west coast, Walt Disney World is preparing for the June 30th grand opening of Toy Story Land at Disney Hollywood Studios. WDW News Today shared some photos and video of the new land at nighttime.
In case you haven’t seen it yet, I’d recommend watching the 20 minute video of Paul McCartney going around Liverpool with James Corden. We visited many of the same sites on our Beatles Fab Four Taxi Tour, when we spent the day touring the town with some of our UK friends. I’d strongly suggest visiting the town if you get the chance and the Taxi Tour is a wonderful way to get to see all the Beatles sights.
