Links to our posts for the past week…

  • Nora continues on with her #2013eateachsandwich challenge… with the Ham ‘n’ Swiss sandwich from Earl of Sandwich, not a repeater; although Nick had it this week with lettuce, tomato, and scrambled egg and pronounced it pretty good.
  • However, our Lunch with an Animal Specialist at Sanaa was a hit in every which way… the food was good, the company was good, our animal specialist was excellent, and we had a very enjoyable time (this is a repeatable event).

From around the blogosphere and the twitterverse…

  • Sarah at EatingWDW visits some of our old haunts…
    • She sampled the Gumbo at Sassagoula Floatworks at Port Orleans French Quarter, and
    • Although we always got the muffuletta at Sassagoula Floatworks, she tried the muffuletta from Riverside Mill at Port Orleans Riverside
A favorite view from the lobby and Sassagoula Floatworks at Port Orleans French Quarter. This photo is from 2007! The palm trees are MUCH larger these days.

  • Nora saw a rumor that the Epcot Segway Tours are being discontinued…
    • Report here on wdwmagic.com (don’t confuse that with us :) EXTRAwdwmagic.com)
    • Another here on wdwinfo.com (a.k.a. Dis Boards)
    • TouringPlans.com also weighs in here
    • And a last report from WDW Untangled here, this cites two plausible reasons for discontinuing the tours
    • We’re a bit disappointed at this news,
      • We recently took the tour ourselves and enjoyed it (here),
      • A different Epcot Segway tour, “Nature Inspired Design,” was predominantly backstage and was shortlived, we did this tour in 2010
      • The only remaining Segway tour is at Fort Wilderness, “Wilderness Back Trail Adventures“, we’ve enjoyed this tour twice so far

Last things…

  • We’re staying very busy doing those Extra Walt Disney World Magic things (special events, tours, etc…)
  • This week, weather permitting, we’ll go to our first Spring Training Baseball Game for the Atlanta Braves at ESPN Wide World of Sports

Thanks for reading!
