Kaki-Gori - Snack of the Week!

Kaki-Gori - Snack of the Week!

It's been a pretty crazy week here in Florida. I hope any readers who were in the path of Hurricane Irma are safe - as for us, our electricity just came back last night, so I am here to bring a little bit of Disney today - through food, of course. Last week we went to Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavilion, and today we're going to be hitting up the same spot, but this time we're grabbing the kiosk's signature snack: Kaki-Gori!

D23 Reactions:Runaway Railway, Tron, and the Rest!

This really was a very big D23 for fans of Walt Disney World, with WDW announcements taking up about 75% of the time spent at the Disney Parks panel.

D23 Reactions: Galaxy's Edge & Star Wars Resort

D23 Expo has come and gone, and with it, there is a LOT to process. I realize that a lot of bloggers have already come through and stated their opinions, but I tend to let mine take a bit of a slow drip approach. So, since nearly all of the parks and resort news coming out of D23 was about Walt Disney World, I am going to tackle it in small bits at a time, starting (to no one's surprise) with the recently officially named Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge (SO much better than Star Wars Land).
