  • Fri, 16:24: Another Disney trip! I'm at WDW, just checked into the Grand Floridian and Krissi and I are off to Epcot for the Rockin Burger Block Party
  • Fri, 16:25: Tweeting will be sporadic due to heavy use of phone for Pokémon Go. :)
  • Fri, 17:02: Monorail fr GF to Epcot is nice if connections are close (they were) though you do have to go down and back up to change lines at the TTC
  • Fri, 17:08: K has to pick up her new Annual Pass so we're in the ticket line.
  • Fri, 17:10: Catch up: I drove down yesterday, spent the night in a Disney Springs area hotel. Picked up Krissi at the airport this morning.
  • Fri, 17:11: Went from airport to Kissimmee Lakefront Park, *the* Pokémon hotspot in Orlando. That was great, lots of Pokestops, several lured constantly
  • Fri, 17:14: Big lines to get in--last weekend of Food and Wine, Veterans Day holiday, Epcot is slammed.
  • Fri, 17:17: Last nights dinner--the chicken and sugar doughnuts at Art Smiths Homecoming in the Springs, eaten at the bar.
  • Fri, 18:19: We have checked in for the burger party early, are first in the "reserved seating" second tier line. Are sitting on floor perusing the menu.
  • Fri, 18:20: The party is in same bldg as the pin event, World Showplace. Big barn of a place. Will be 5 food stations, all have a signature burger.
  • Fri, 18:23: Food stations also have sides--tater tot bar, mac and cheese w toppings, milkshakes, other finger foods, token green things.
  • Fri, 18:57: Small sliders, nice for this tasting party. Beef blend, bulgogi braised beef, tillamook cheddar, etc
  • Fri, 19:54: I couldn't try all the sliders, but several were really good. Hard to decide which to vote for--and I think one I didn't taste is favored.
  • Fri, 19:57: Rockin Burger Block Party comes w rock music. When the live band started the volume was a little high for me, but tolerable
  • Fri, 21:21: Left the burger party early, we're both tired. Monorail back to Grand Floridian.
  • Sat, 07:34: Out of the room a bit before 7, got my refillable mug filled with coffee at a station just inside the main bldg, caught monorail to Epcot
  • Sat, 07:37: We're doing the Parisien breakfast event for Food and Wine, held in Le Chefs de France restaurant.
  • Sat, 07:51: Got to TTC at 7:45 where we should change to the Epcot monorail line...and it doesn't start until 8. Ditto for busses. Found a bench to wait
  • Sat, 07:54: Tomorrow when we have a similar schedule, will investigate bus from Grand Floridian to Epcot.
  • Sat, 08:07: We failed to see that they opened the monorail platform a few minutes before 8. We walked up just as the doors closed on the first monorail
  • Sat, 08:08: We're still in good time for our breakfast event barring a huge backup at security.
  • Sat, 09:27: They let us past the ropes at 9, the crowd progressed to the restaurant. Swift check-in, then handed a mimosa and shown to a table.

  • Sat, 10:20: It's Dapper Day in Epcot, lots of spiffily dresses folks around in clothes I would never wear to a theme park. :)
  • Sat, 11:29: Really cute Dapper costumes: he in steampunk-ish Dreamfinder, she as Figment w lavender flirty dress, orange crinoline, custom fascinator.
  • Sat, 11:30: Couldn't catch the Figment couple to ask for a picture, alas.
