Butterfinger Cupcake Sighting!

Leave it to Mrs. All in WDW to dig up hidden treasure in the most unexpected of places!  Starbucks!

Ever the sleuth, she got someone at The Trolley Car Cafe to spill the truth.  Take it away, my dear …

“They can’t call them Butterfinger Cupcakes, but they are.  They cost $4.59, and you can even use your Starbucks card to buy one!”  Great work, Mrs. All in WDW!

Doug Davis, Dennis Conroy, and I had just discussed this on my last appearance on the WDW Main Street Podcast.

Bon appetit!

Four Parks, One World? Four Parks, ONE Day!

In case you missed all of last Saturday’s “shenanigans”.  Here it is … all in ONE place.

We woke up with a challenge on our minds.  We had never tried to tackle all four WDW parks in one day.

So, we sketched out a very loosely-defined plan and took off for the TTC.  A tram ride from the Simba section and a shivering journey on a ferry later, we were in “The Kingdom”!

Here are those links …

The only thing we haven’t shared, as yet, is our “brunch” at Gaston’s Tavern.  That will come soon.  It was our first visit … other than a serving of LeFou’s Brew some time ago.

After we returned from “orbit”, it was time to …
