Passing time at Disney

Living in Florida allows you to enjoy great beaches, beautiful weather, interesting news, and incredible discounts to Disney World. The discounts make sense— we residents become “ambassadors” to the park and generally buy food, drink, and gifts during our visits.

Yeni and I purchase an annual pass each year. We meet family at the parks, hang out with friends, and enjoy days and events for just the two of us. Before Yeni and I visited the parks together, I’d go with my godkids, cousins, family, and friends.

Because of these trips, I have some great photos through the years.

'Murica

Went to WDW yesterday with the Mrs… we’re annual pass holders which allows us to go when convenient. Normally, we’ll pass on the heavy season (to avoid the crowds), but we also take an opportunity when it presents itself.

Starbucks on Main Street

Yeni and I love going to DisneyWorld — our one big spend each year is annual passes. We go as often as we can… not as often as we’d like… but we get there 20+ times a year.

We each have our favorite places.

Castle Courtyard

Yeni loves the Magic Kingdom… I love Epcot. The castle is her house… I can sit on the People Mover for hours. We both love Main Street, England, the Land, and Chefs de France.

Main Street (or officially Main Street, U.S.A. since we’re talking DisneyWorld) was meant to showcase the typical turn of the century (1900 not 2000) American Main Street.

For those of us who remember the carefree time it recreates, Main Street will bring back happy memories. For younger visitors, it is an adventure in turning back the calendar to the days of grandfather’s youth.Walt Disney

Recently, the good ol’ Main Street Bakery was replaced by a Starbucks.

Many people were excited about the change. Lines to get a cup of coffee went out the door. Literally. You could see the Starbucks mermaid more than Ariel.

Yeni and I did not welcome the change.

I found it ironic that an attraction showcasing the carefree time of yesteryear saw a big, national chain replace a local shop.

Of course, I’m one of the few who actually wonder why Starbucks is so popular. A good cup of coffee, at a better price, can be found at your local coffee shop.

Now… finding a local coffee shop still in business? That’s the difficult part.

Train at Disney World

During a great trip to Disney that the esposa surprised me with, we caught a great view of a 2nd train passing. =)

Eating at Walt Disney World

Living 2 hours north of Walt Disney World, Yeni and I purchase annual passes yearly. Not only do we love going to Disney, it remains pretty much our only entertainment. As much as we love Disney World, and with as often as we go, we do notice some changes (over the years) that leave us somewhat disappointed.
