The wilderness (of Florida and California) must be explored!

Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom

Wilderness Explorers at Animal Kingdom

One of the newer activities at Animal Kingdom is the Wilderness Explorers scavenger hunt.  It’s based on the Disney movie Up, and there are several places to sign up around the park. Just keep an eye out for  wilderness guides dressed in khaki and an orange neckerchief to get a Wilderness Explorer Handbook and pass initiation into the explorers by learning the special call named the Caw Caw Roar, pledging to be “a friend to all.” The badge guides are standing by at each stop to help the explorers learn about the ways of the wilderness and many of the skills that are required to navigate the woods.  There are 31 badges to achieve so it could take as much or as little of the day (or several days) as you’d like.

Enjoying the rain at Disney World

It is very rare, if ever, that we go to Disney World and don’t experience the Florida thunderstorms.  It’s just bad planning to think that you won’t get rained on when you are on vacation.  But with a few extra items in your suitcase you can make sure that the rain doesn’t put a damper on your trip.

What to bring:

  • Rain Jacket – skip the cheap plastic poncho!  I see lots of articles that talk about bringing a poncho to fend off the weather.  There are a few problems with ponchos: Continue reading

Eat to the Beat Concert Series Trivia Contest

Labor Day is over and that means we’re even closer to the start of Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival.  The fall edition of the Mickey Monitor passholder newsletter included the musical lineup for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series lineup and I have to admit, I didn’t immediately recognize all the artists.  So I thought it would be fun to do a Twitter trivia contest to see if people can identify the 19 acts who will be performing this year from clues I’ll put on Twitter.  Make sure you follow @InDisneyBubble to get the clues!

RULES OF THE CONTEST: Revised 9/6 at 6:00PM to make it easier!

  • The contest will run from Friday, September 6, 2013 – Monday, September 9, 2013.
  • Each artist/group will have 2 clues tweeted about them, along with the hashtag #EatToTheBeatTrivia
  • To guess the answer, reply to that tweet so I know which question you’re answering with your answer including the hashtag #EatToTheBeatTrivia
  • At the end of the contest, all who answered a question correctly will be entered in a random drawing to win a wine cork key chain (in honor of the food and wine festival.) Each correct answer is another entry into the drawing!
  • I’ll post the clues/answers along with winners here on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.

Disclaimer: I got of my trivia facts from the artists’ websites and Wikipedia, I apologize in advance for any errors!
