runDisney: Wine and Dine 2019

Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend has OFFICIALLY opened for Nov.1-3 , 2019 in Walt Disney World. This is one of the only races I need to before ive completed all of runDisney events and I was planing on signing up for this event this year but when I looked at the dates right before sign ups I realized that I was unable to do so because Nov. 2 I will be attending Harry Potter and the Cursed Child that day.

Since I have already bought my tickets for the play I did not sign up and I am really sad that its gettingn put off another year. Will you be siging up for this race weekend?

Disneyland: Hong Kong & Tokyo

Last night I was looking at flights and hotels and the next thing I knew I was looking at my confirmation emails to my trip to Tokyo. So my flight has two layovers one in LA for two hours and the other in Hong Kong for about 10 hours, which means I will be taking a trip into Disneyland while I wait to hop on the plane to Tokyo. Ill be in Tokyo for five days, three days which are dedicated to Disney and the other just to explore! So if you have any tips, tricks or suggestions please let me know in the comments!

Accio Tickets!

Monday, March 11, 2019, at 11 am, I purchased tickets for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child part one and two at the Curran Theater in San Francisco, Saturday, November 2, 2019. The part one of the play is 2hrs and 45 min and the second part is 2hrs and 35 minutes and I made the decision to spend all of Saturday watching part one and two of the play, and I know it’s going to be magical! I love Harry Potter, so when I found out it was coming to SF I knew I needed to get tickets to see because it’s so close to my house!

I have nine months to get ready for this play and what I mean by that is I’ve only watched the movies (multiple times, every weekend) I thought it was only fitting to FINALLY read all the Harry Potter books including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Wish me luck,

Walt Disney Family Museum: Membership!

February 29, 2019 I can proudly and excitingly say that I have become an official member of the WDFM! I found that the Dual membership was the way to go for me. My job each year goes to the persidio for meetings and I love it because for our hour long lunch break I go the WDFM and buy everything I can from their shop, now I get to hang out in the museum part. I live in the city and sometimes I just want to go and hang out and this is definitely giving me the option to go whenever!

Food & Wine 2019: Tips and Tricks!

Food and wine has some pretty cool changed this year. They have included extra places for foods. If you get the Sip and Savor Pass you can use a tab not only from the kiosks, but from Paradise Grill and special carts around DCA. Another cool option this year is buying food from another kiosk. For example if I wanted the wings from Cluck-a-doodle-moo but it has a long line (which it always has a long line) while the Berry Patch has no one in line you can order your wings from the the Berry Patch and walk over to the pick up area for cluck-a-doodle-moo hand them your receipt and tada you have your wings with a less wait time.
