Hear the Sound of Music playing in your head? Yeah, that’s not what this is. I realized it’s been a while since we ventured into my favorite place on earth, so I figured it was time for a return visit. Plus this is what my brain vomited up today. Nice visual, isn’t it?
So here goes with the Black Dog version of my favorite things about Disney World. (Cue cool Mouse Music.) Feel free to agree, disagree, comment, tell me I’m an idiot and have no idea what I’m talking about. It’s all good.
Favorite place to stuff our yaps:
I’m actually embarrassed to say – and hope my Disney Dork card doesn’t get revoked – but in all my visits to Animal Kingdom, I’ve always missed this little beauty until the last time I was in my happy place. Tucked away right around the corner from Expedition Everest, this little gem sings to my vegetarian heart with the yummiest shrimp lo mein I’ve ever snarfed down. Word to the wise: pay a visit AFTER Expedition Everest. Just sayin’.
Favorite place to get our drink on:
It was a close fight between the pub and La Cava del Tequila. What gave the Rose and Crown the edge? Accents, the Hat Lady, and the close proximity to British Invasion – our favorite spot to make total idiots of ourselves.
Favorite thrill ride:
This was also a tough decision. With so many awesome-sauce options to choose from, narrowing down to just one was a bit of a brain pickle. What edges Rockin’ Roller Coaster out over Tower of Terror and Expedition Everest? I like my stomach where it is and not relocated to my brain or ankles, and honestly – who’s afraid of a big, fuzzy, somewhat hairy snowman who needs a shave and a shower?
Favorite breakfast item: No words necessary.
And of course, no Black Dog post would be complete without…
Favorite runDisney race:
Night start – big score. BIG. After party – BODACIOUS. Party until the sun starts coming up as you stagger back to your hotel – PRICELESS. Seriously, how can you possibly top that? Why would one try? Knowing you’ve got the perfect reason to run your dupa off so you can get to the after party faster is pretty good motivation to get my short little dumpy hamster legs a-rollin’.
So there you have it – just a few of Black Dog’s Disney World faves. Isn’t your life complete now that you have this knowledge? Thought so. You’re welcome.
Enjoy the ride.
Tellmetellmetellme! What are some of your favorite things about Disney World? Never been? Then just guess! No answer is a stupid one! Unless you say Stitch’s Wild Ride. Then I yank your Dork card.
