Sad you won't be able to join us in December but glad to hear that you will be reporting on the F & W Festival for us. This will be the second year in a row that I won't be able to attend, so I'm counting on all our live reporters to help me feel like I'm there.

Get there earlier than you think to take advantage of the early entry. We were very early but got stuck waiting for a monorail being inspected at the transportation center. No one checked our ressie time when we finally got in the park. Breakfast was terrible (avoid the filet) but we epected that but we ended up missing out on the pictures before everyone hit the part because of a 30 minute monorail delay which is why we booked.

anniebean & Geoff also spent the day yesterday at Universal Studios and sent us this update.


She said, "Over on the dark side today..."






They had lunch at the new Simpsons Fast Food Boulevard in Springfield, USA...





FYI - The Simpsons Fast Food Blvd is a single dining venue featuring several Simpsons-themed counter service restaurants including...






...where Geoff had a Krusty Burger (6 oz. Burger with Secret Sauce, cheddar cheese sauce, a giant tomato slice, iceberg lettuce, served on a specialty bun) and anniebean had "another good" veggie burger (Mother Nature Burger -
6 oz Black Bean Burger topped with guacamole & tomato slice, served on a specialty bun).











And from...





Geoff had a...




Flaming Moe -The non-alcoholic Signature Specialty drink of Springfield (orange flavored soda, served in a special layered cup with dry ice underneath to make it bubble)




And then they shared a orange creamsicle cupcake from (I think???)...

Lisa's Teahouse of Horror






"Everything was yummy."


And it seems that despite the fact that these items were purchased from different counters, they must all share a common cash register (as evidenced by the receipt pic that anniebean sent).








Then later anniebean sent this beverage snack update...


"Raining cats & dogs again, but braved the rain for delicious ..."




"We actually ended up having two of these...apiece."

Yes, they all share a cafeteria style checkout. The cupcakes were actually offered as you checkout so it was an impulse buy. After you pay for food, an attendant then seats you at a table so no searching aimlessly for one with tray full of food.
