Skipper Canteen – Mini Review


I was recently honored by a friend who offered to take me to lunch at Skipper Canteen in Adventureland. This place has magic, but you have to give yourself permission to “sit”, or be, in it.  Remember that you are being taken right into the legend of the Jungle Cruise as the skippers who pilot the steamships down the jungle rivers,…

Graves Family’s Loving Tribute to Their Son


I’m am honestly moved to tears right now by the decision of the Graves family not to sue Disney. I’ve been in and around Disney theme parks for the better part of 30 years and I’ve seen countless accidents, even deaths, and LOTS of suing, sometimes legitimately and sometimes just to take advantage. In my circle of friends, most thought the…

Disney Food (my top 3… for the moment)


Today I’m talking food. Probably because I’m dieting… but I digress. 😉 I thought I’d share my current three favorite fares out at the World of Disney.
