Disney World Trip Report 2012 Part 14


 

When we left off, the girls had just finished princess make-overs at the Bippity Boppity Boutique.  They were very tired.  Kara in particular probably should have taken a nap.  But we were locked into reservations I had made 180 days before the trip and had to work around those.  Read the rest of this entry

Boardwalk Empire: Two Imposters


It looks like the creators of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire are finally going to give us some of what we’ve been holding out for since the show’s debut. Some good knock down drag out gangster gunplay.

And that’s not all…

**Spoiler Warning! This article discusses details of “Two Imposters.”**

Walking Dead: Season 3, Episode 7 “When the Dead Come Knocking”


There really isn’t a lot of new ground to cover this week.  This was another episode of The Walking Dead that largely jogged in place to pad out a relatively brief story into a full season of television.  As usual, logic and character development were victims of the needs of the plot.  Rather than repeat my litany of complaints against the show, I’ll just hit the main points.  Shouldn’t take long.

Disney World Trip Report 2012 Part 13


 

When we left off, we blew through three princess meet-and-greets in a row finishing off our list of must-see characters for the trip.  We were winding down our morning before our afternoon break.  On our way out, we decided to hit Tomorrowland.  Read the rest of this entry

When we left off, we had kicked off the final full day of our trip in Adventureland.  My mom wasn’t feeling well and stayed back at the hotel.  Our primary mission of the day was to finish off any and all remaining meet and greets.  With Tinkerbell crossed off the list early, that left a parade of princesses.

Disney World Trip Report 2012 Part 11


 

When we left off, we had finished the fourth day of our trip at Animal Kingdom.  We had spent a little time in each of the four Disney theme parks plus Downtown Disney.  With a day and a half left to go, we would spend the rest of our time at Disney World at the Magic Kingdom.

When we left off, Mindy and my mom had departed for a shopping excursion at Downtown Disney.  I took the girls back to the Art of Animation Resort for a pool break at the Flippin’ Fins Pool.  The plan was to meet up at Animal Kingdom after Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade.

Boardwalk Empire: A Man A Plan…


“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face.” – Mike Tyson

The characters on Boardwalk Empire spent most of this week’s episode plotting amongst themselves.

Now they have to live with the consequences

Walking Dead: Season 3, Episode 6 “Hounded”


 

Last week’s episode felt like a lot of filler to me.  This week, the filler continued.  But there was at least some forward momentum.

American Horror Story: Asylum – Episode 5


Later tonight, I’ll watch AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Typically I watch the show when it airs and then I rewatch it while cranking out my write-up.  I can usually finish it within the hour between the first airing and Talking Dead.  That’s because The Walking Dead is a pretty simple show that doesn’t require much from me as a viewer.

Review: Wreck It Ralph


Wreck It Ralph is a winning animated feature from Disney (not Pixar this time) that will entertain both children and the adults who bring them.  It’s funny, fast-paced and features a cast of characters you can’t help but care about.

Disney World Trip Report 2012 Part 9


 

When we left off, we had finished Day 3 of our trip at Hollywood Studios.  It was a fun day that included family traditions like dinner at the 50’s Prime Time Cafe and new experiences like Fantasmic!  But I couldn’t help but notice that we had hit a wall.  The kids were tired and occasionally crabby.  And the adults were sore from walking and carrying Kara.  We needed to slow down a little.

Disney World Trip Report 2012 Part 8


 

When we left off, we had spent the morning at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  We had ridden Toy Story Mania twice, knocked out both of the park’s big thrill rides and capped it off with Star Tours.  Mom was taking the kids back to the hotel for a break and Mindy and I were headed to the Dolphin Resort for a couples massage at the Manara Spa.
