Brunch Starts soon at Chef Art Smith's Homecommin'

Sun, 2018-06-10 19:03
Fans of Chef Art Smith's Homecommin' will be glad to know there is a new seating commin' soon:

There’s also DELICIOUS DOUGHNUTS! You can either get Bacon & Pecan Doughnuts drizzled with caramel or the Rise N’ Shine house-made sugar doughnuts served with spiced cane syrup and seasonal fruit.




The starters on the menu include a selection of southern comfort foods like the Hallelujah Biscuit. This dish is comprised of an open-faced big biscuit topped with Chef Art’s famous fried chicken, two fried eggs, pimento cheese, and pecan-smoked bacon and smothered in sawmill gravy. There’s also the Sunrise Burger topped with pecan-smoked bacon, a fried egg, white cheddar, and tomato-bacon jam, or the Country Benedict, an open-faced big biscuit with griddled country ham, two poached eggs and house-made hollandaise.



And of course, a brunch wouldn’t be complete without drinks! The Rise & Shine cocktail menu has a wide selection of Bloody Marys, sangria, and more – with the highlight being the Princess Mimosa with bubbly and freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice.

Redd’s Strawberry Cake rounds out the new items as a sponge cake soaked in strawberry compote syrup with candied strawberry, coconut Chantilly, and diced pineapple sautéed in brown sugar and vanilla bean. Attached Images

Is there anywhere to meet Moana?

I don't see her on the list on the app, but I'm hoping someone on here will know something.

Best Fastpass with small kids in each park?

Sun, 2018-06-10 06:44
Since I can't ride the more intense rides, I'm going to take the little ones while the grown ups enjoy them. I am not sure which kids rides are the best to fastpass though.

I need 2 rides in DHS while they ride ToT and RnR.
I need 1 ride in MK while they ride Space Mountain
and 2 rides in AK while they ride Expedition Everest and Dinosaur.

What do you guys suggest?

Steampunk for MNSSHP

Sun, 2018-06-10 05:08
I wasn't really sure where to put this, so please move it if needed.

My DD wants to dress all of us up in Steampunk (as Steampunk? whatever it would be). Do you think it would work out well for MNSSHP? She's so excited about this idea.

Barksy's Most Expensive Day Ever Day 7

Sat, 2018-06-09 22:39
Barsky - Golden Retriever pup extraordinaire
Christi - my human
Aaron - my human's friend and shaman in World of Warcraft

Today was another rest day. We laid around all morning doing nothing. Our paws hurt from walking in wet shoes. My human had noticed a Nike outlet store just down the road and decided we should go there. She needed some new shoes for work and some dry shoes. I wanted to stay and do nothing, but she picked me up and put me in my bag anyway.

It took a while, but eventually we found two pairs of shoes that fit well. Then we took off to Downtown Disney, er Disney Springs. We had some research to do at Trex. The food was ok but way overpriced. We took lots of pictures and then headed out to the Lego store. My human loves the Maleficent dragon. She said she will buy it one day when they sell it. Aaron told her she better start saving her money now. After shipping some toys to Aaron's kids, we wandered around Disney Springs, checking out the new places my human had read about on Intercot. We were too stuffed to try any of the delicious looking desserts. I thought something was wrong with my human when she even passed up the chocolate in the Ganachery. I didn't need to worry though. When we found The Edison, she got dessert. Aaron got the Rocky Road milk shake. It was HUGE. I could have fit in that glass.

After dessert, we waddled towards the movie theater. Aaron wanted to see Deadpool 2. On the way, we watched a group of entertainers rap out words that people in the audience chose. It was pretty amazing. They had words like onamonapia, puppies, and supercalifragilisticexpaladocious. They did a great job.

We got our movie tickets and then went to our seats. This movie theater is not very good. Our seats were at the very end of the row right against a wall. Who doesn't leave a walkway between the seats and the wall? My human always has to go to the bathroom 2 or 3 times during a movie, so this wasn't going to work for us. We went and got a refund (which still hasn't posted in the bank yet).

Of course, it was pouring rain again, so we headed back to our resort. It was our last night to enjoy the sound of crickets from our balcony.

Disney ringtones for iPhone

Sat, 2018-06-09 18:20
Hey everyone,
I know I asked about ring tones years ago, but I am asking again.

Does anyone know where to get good Disney ring tones or voice alerts?
I know I can make them on a computer, but I don’t even have a computer. Just an iPad and iPhone.

I already have pirates of the Caribbean and Be our Guest
I am really looking for the incredibles. I would love to have Edna Mode as a voice alert again.

Please let me know if you know of any good sites.

John Lasseter era offically ending

Sat, 2018-06-09 15:27
First, why can't I find the Intercot thread where this first developed in November 2017? Am I crazy?

But it has now officially been announced what we long suspected, that after doing some "consulting work" for Disney through December 31, 2018 that John Lasseter will be completely separated from Disney.

As trivial as it seems, the one thing that keeps wondering through my head is what will they do with the "Short Film Festival" at Epcot?

His dismissal seemed inevitable last year, but it still remains a sad moment in Disney history.

Training after surgery

Fri, 2018-06-08 23:53
Hey all. Looking for advice. I just had surgery to remove my gall bladder and I’m scheduled to do my 1st 1/2 marathon for Disney’s Wine and Dine.
How long after surgery did everyone feel good enough to start adding miles to their training? Thanks in advance.
