Alan Parsons Flower Power Concert

This experience took place on Sunday, May 18, 2014 (the last event of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival 2014)

The concert was a bit disappointing compared to some of the others we’ve seen at Epcot in the last year or so. It’s not that anything was really horrible, just that most everything wasn’t

Il Mulino – Tuna Carpaccio, Rigatoni con Funghi, and Cerni

This dining experience took place on Friday, March 28, 2014

We put Il Mulino to a real test on the last Friday night in March – we didn’t contact Angela (manager) ahead of time to let her know we were coming in for dinner, we just showed up and got a table. We

Oft repeated fact isn’t true

At dinner last night, we told a friend from Rhode Island that Walt Disney World was bigger than the state of Rhode Island. I can’t remember where or when we heard that, I’m pretty sure that this little “fact” made its way into our brains from more than one conduit… So, this morning, I thought

Senses Spa at the Grand Floridian – Swedish Massage

It’s a bit difficult to write about spa experiences. I can tell you how my particular massage or whatever went with the particular therapist I had… Until I go back a couple of times to the same therapist at a few different spas, I can’t really say whether they’re any good compared to anyone else.

Repost – Two Segway Tours that are no-more

There are two Segway Tours that used to take place in Epcot theme-park. The first is the “Nature Inspired Design Tour” (circa 2010) and the second is the “Keep Moving Forward Tour” (circa 2013) – interestingly, we had the same tour guide on each of these. The “Keep Moving Forward Tour” was very short-lived –

Extra WDW Magic from around the Ether… Jan.22.2014

I’m going to be a brief today…

One of the BIG things that’s happened at Walt Disney World recently is the opening of Spice Route Tables at the Morocco Pavilion in Epcot. Now, we have our doubts about how this venue will succeed. First of all, the idea of small plates at Tutto Gusto failed

Planning a visit to Disney World with others

Even before we became “Extra WDW Magic,” we were really into planning trips to Walt Disney World. Our first “REAL” visit to Walt Disney World (in other words, the first visit when we sort of kinda knew what to expect, 2002… it was also the first visit when we were somewhat responsible for someone else

Lunch with an Animal Specialist at Sanaa (2nd time around)

We were very pleased to go back to Sanaa for the Lunch with an Animal Specialist Thanksgiving Weekend. This was the first time that our friends Kris & Kevin had eaten at Sanaa – but interestingly, it wasn’t the first time that the four of us teamed up to do something special at Animal Kingdom
