Peter Pan may not want to grow up, but he definitely wants a beer.
power hour n. A drinking game (originating in Upstate NY/Capital District area) usually played, just prior to heading out to the bars & clubs (A.K.A. “pre-game drinking” or “pre-gaming”). Rules: Take one shot of beer every minute for an hour. To enhance your power hour, burn a 60 minute CD with 60 1 minute tracks, playing a different song for every shot you take. This game is used as an easy way to get a quick “buzz”… yet difficult (for some) due to the constant smaller quantities of alcohol, timing, and aeration of the beer.

We’ve been having a lovely day here at Walt Disney World. We bought matching Minnie Mouse action figures that came with a complete and really cute wardrobe. (We’re going to play with them – that’s what we’re going to do with them, but thanks for asking).
Everything was going just fine until we came back to the Beach Club and Lauren found out about some work problems and needed to get online. We found a nice table in the resort’s solarium and fired up her mac airbook – nothing. Uh-oh, where’s the “Welcome to the Beach Club, pay us 29.99 and you can use our wireless network” screen? This was a pickle. Lauren really needed to get this stuff done. Continue reading
I love New York City for so many reasons, and in many ways, it’s like Disney World, in the sense that it’s crazy and fun and silly and there is always something to do. And I don’t know too many other cities that host Disney movie sing-a-longs at bars, but the Bell House in Brooklyn did, last Thursday.
First of all, people were dressed up!
The great thing about this cocktail is that you can use cheap ass table wine—I bought a $10 chianti. The wine mutes the sweetness of the rum, and the soda provides a light, bubbly zing. The ginger is a nice finish. I used Perciatelli
pasta as straws, and I highly recommend finding someone sweet to share your drink with, Lady and the Tramp
THERE she is...
My Grandmother is not like most grandmothers. She swears like a sailor, can drink me under the table, and is practically mayor of her small Pennsylvanian town. Taking her to Disney World was lots of fun. She gets tickled by just about anything and was appreciative of all the things we showed her. She loved Cirque du Soleil, eating cajun popcorn at the side of the pool, and she kept threatening to quit her job and move down to Disney World to be Goofy (or, as we’ve learned to say, “be Goofy’s friend”)–a joke that she made so many times we eventually stopped laughing and started to worry. To be honest, I don’t think Disney World would be able to handle her.

This picture is of the Hoop-De-Doo cast in the 1970's, so it's old-thymey and retro, which seems totally postmodern and confusing.
Once my mom and I were on a Disney World resort bus going somewhere and we overheard this family going ape shit nutzo over something called the Hoop-De-Doo Revue. They kept on saying it all loud and stuff, and for the entire bus ride they started every sentence with, “Well. At the Hoop De Doo Revue…”
We rolled our eyes at them, but mostly because they were taking up the entire back of the bus with their kids and these wagons they brought on the bus and their kids were really misbehaved. But also because we thought the Hoop-De-Doo Revue sounded really stupid. And, as we would find out when we soon caved and bought tickets, it is really stupid.
Lauren When I arrive in Disney World, it is usually late at night and I’m usually ready to party. Unfortunately, they close up shop pretty early there. The best late night spot is definitely Dance Hall! Dance Hall! on the Boardwalk (which is actually just called the Atlantic Dance Hall, but I get super excited about it). It’s a huge art deco ballroom with a dance floor that stands before a big screen where they play music videos-Disney’s attempt at a nightclub. Continue reading
I'm sorry, but DOES THAT LOOK APPETIZING? I mean, what is that even?
Lauren I am a little embarrassed to admit this.
One of my favorite things to do in Walt Disney World isn’t in the park, it’s not an attraction or ride, it involves nothing resembling anything Disney, and it’s not music, shopping, food, or drink.
Although, wait. I am drinking while I do it. Can you guess what it is? Continue reading
Lauren My mailbox is constantly flooded with questions about Walt Disney World. (LIE.) Knowing how much I like to drink, many people are curious about how I manage to enjoy myself without being sober the whole time. It’s way easier than you’d think. Below, some questions you may have about boozing in the parks:
So people probably don’t drink that much in Disney World, huh?
WRONG! Continue reading
