Grazing in Mexico



Grazing in Mexico, originally uploaded by Erin *~*~*.

The birds situation here at the waterside tables in Mexico is abhorrent. We spoke to the manager and let him know that the dining experience is severely degraded and the birds and humans are in peril when guests are not told that feeding wildlife table side is not acceptable. He asked us to stop by guest relations and tell them too.

Warwick wedding cup

There is a fairy tale legend surrounding the Warwick wedding cup. A man wanted to marry a princess, but was told by her father that he could not unless he invented a drinking cup out if which two people could drink simultaneously without spilling a drop. He made it in the shape of this woman. And they got married and lived happily ever after.

Wildlife challenges at Disney World

When a mama duck will parade her children past a crowd that is only 6 feet away, it’s time to relocate the family. These ducks are simply too unafraid of humans and this leads to encounters with humans that are not safe for anyone involved.

This morning on Walt Disney World property, I witnessed parents and children alike persisting in chasing ducks down, trying to pet them, and then "OUCH – hey it BIT me!". More signs and more Cast Members are needed to educate and intervene.

Please, Disney – you used to be better at this! Don’t wait until someone gets hurt. And yeah, "someone" includes the animals. Practice a little risk management while making the World a little safer for the wildlife that lives and breeds on YOUR property. You can do this – don’t let me down!

A fountain view at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort

I snapped this shot while walking to the bus stop from my room. It’s a beautiful if brisk morning at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort. I am headed to the Magic Kingdom, where I will visit the newest section of Fantasyland.

The rest of the family is moving even more slowly than I am, and I am not sure what time I will meet them or where.

The bus is here now – let’s go!

Donald Duck at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort

G’morning, everyone. Spotted our pal Donald Duck while out for a brisk walk this morning at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort, and I do mean brisk! It’s only 45 degrees in Orlando at the moment. Definitely sweatshirt weather! Now for some coffee – will check in with you again later on!

Today’s adventure: what’s better than having a brother with more DVC points than God?

Answer: not much 😉 I just checked into Disney’s Saratoga Springs resort
for the weekend. Chez Bro and da fam are already at EPCOT. We’ll take a
detour to Downtown Disney to lunch with some friends and then catch up with
them in the afternoon. Lets go!
