Dopey Challenge 2014

Dopey Challenge 2014 Well, Disney World’s Marathon Weekend is coming up this  week, so I thought I would do a look back at my experience from 2014 from running the Dopey Challenge. Four days of running a total of 48.6 miles totally kicked my butt, but I had an awesome experience and am a little sad not to be participating this year. I love seeing everyone’s costume choices and really hope everyone has a great time!! I plan on registering for 2017…need to save my pennies! The Expo…

A Look Back at the Hollywood Studios Animation Station

One of my favorite non-ride attractions at Hollywood Studios was the Magic of Disney Animation. In here, you could  participate in exhibits and experience what it’s like to be a Disney animator.

Cape May Cafe at Disney’s Beach Club

Besides Boma, another favorite place to eat a breakfast buffet is at Cape May Cafe, located in the Beach Club. This location is a character buffet, with Minnie, Donald, and Goofy in their beach clothes! Cape May Cafe We enjoy this buffet because there are some different food items offered. They also have a “secret” stash of allergy-friendly items from Erin McKenna’s Bakery! We start off on the buffet with some fruit, veggies (usually they have broccolini -yum- or asparagus), potatoes, salad, and quinoa. Then the chef…
