    Bavel

    Bavel is one of the newest hot restaurants in LA that i had to book months in advanced. It just so happen to land on Mother’s Day weekend so that worked out for me. I didn’t have high expectations even with all the rave reviews because i wasn’t sure how different Middle Eastern food could get from any other corner stores, but as a sister restaurant to Bestia they had some things going for them. I got some recommendations from people that i know who have gone already and basically ordered what everyone seemed to like. After the meal i have to agree with everyone. Something about getting each dish…

    Hollywood Studios

    For the last day our Disney World we saved the least for last. We had a 6pm flight to catch and only had a half day to spend in a park so we spent it at Hollywood Studios which is currently going through renovations and getting their own Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge later in the year. The newly opened Toy Story Land was the only important thing to visit for the day since the rest of the park is filled with rides and attractions that Disneyland offers so we only had a few things to hit up before leaving the park. Originally built to compete with Universal Studios as a…

    Animal Kingdom

    Day 4 had us visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom which as you can guess is part zoo part amusement park. The day started off rough as i happen to lose my magic band which killed the first hour in the park as i had to backtrack and head to guest services to get a temporary pass so that we could use all fast passes for the day. Leela enterained herself while i was gone with the old pay phones around the park. Our first ride was the Kilimanjaro Safaris which was a good 30 minute truck ride around the back area of the park where we got to see some giraffes, elephants,…

    Magic Kingdom

    Today was our 10 year wedding anniversary and the main reason we came to Disney World this week. We work up with the rain gone, and the sun out again the crowds were out in full force. We had a 10:30am breakfast inside Cinderella’s Castle which meant we needed to get on the bus for the 20 minute ride, through security and to the castle in time for our reservation. The problem was that there was an Extra Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom so everyone was going and we had to wait for 3/4 busses to fill up before we could get on. Dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table is another…

    Epcot

    My memories of Epcot were that it was hot, big, and boring. There were just a lot of movies and not many rides to go on. After this trip its one of my favorite parks after growing up a bit and after they’ve increased the amount of rides in the park now. After a rough day before it was nice to get a good night’s sleep and have enough time to prepare for the full day in the park ahead of us. You have to be prepared for every type of weather when you visit Florida and day two proved it to be true as we work up to rain,…

    Welcome to Disney World

    Our start of our vacation got off to a bad start months before we actually left when previous booked flight times changed which made me find new ones that i thought would work but ended up being just as bad. I had originally planned for us to leave at midnight and arrive to Disney World around 8am, but what after all the rebookings we left LA at 9:00pm and landed in Orlando at 4:30am and arrived at our hotel just after 5:00am. We now had hours to kill before the parks opened up and with little to no sleep for everyone it wasn’t a very pleasant start to our day.…

    We’re going to Disney World!

    Last summer while planning for our 10 Year Wedding anniversary we were deciding between going back to Hawaii or finally going to Disney World. After much debate and planning we decided to take our first trip to Disney World, and i was off to the races. I’ve been listening to the Mouse Chat Podcast for a few years now and knew the basic ins and outs of what to do and not to do but actually putting everything into motion was still exciting.
