Cool Disney Snob IX: IS THAT A NEW CUPCAKE??! new p.40 Los Angeles Adventures! 7/17

WELCOME friends, DISers, Romans, countrymen, and all you Disney Snobs to this latest snobby trip report. My name is Emma, and this will be my ninth TR here on the DIS! Whether you are an old friend, a long-time lurker, or a new reader, I hope you'll come out to say hello, maybe a quick "Aloha."

Go on...you know you wanna say it...

ALOOOOOOOOOOOOOHA!

Ahhhh. It's just such a magical word.

I will be leaving for the one and only WALT DISNEY WORLD, the place of all pixie dust, in just over ONE WEEK, and I couldn't hold that ALOHA in any longer.

I seem to walk around in a cloud of Disney dreaming these days. When I'm going about my tasks at work, visions of the castle suddenly rise before my mind. When I go for a bike ride, I'm imagining palm trees overhead. When I eat my lunch, I find myself wondering what cupcakes are under the case at Starring Rolls at just that very moment. When I turn on the strawberry (the strawberry is my ipod...but don't worry, we'll get to who's who in a sec...), I only want to play Disney soundtracks.

It's getting bad. I'd better get back to Disney ASAP!



That's me! In a picture taken, unsurprisingly, at the Polynesian. I kinda adore the Polynesian. I have a standing snobbish reservation at the hammocks on the beach (lol...I wish!).

SO. Introductions. I'm 24, currently doing freelance writing and working at a bookstore (which is SO DANGEROUS for a book-lover like me!), a former Disney cast member (worked at the Boardwalk for a year after graduation...so much fun!), crazy about Jane Austen, Disney, and cupcakes! I even put together a Disney cupcake infographic/guide/poster for my blog :



I can't wait to scope out all the new cupcakes I've been hearing about online - like the ones at the newly re-opened Boardwalk Bakery (they look pretty much the same as before and the other desserts look amazing too!). And the Main Street Bakery/Starbucks if it's open. And the Monstrous Summer cupcake...and...and...yeah. Hence the title of this trippie. I have no doubt I will be saying "IS THAT A NEW CUPCAKE???" pretty much constantly.

Right. Ready to hear about the rest of this crazy crew?

Mama Snob - My mom is the Disney expert and supreme Disney planner in the family. Relaxing at the resorts is her favorite Disney thing to do. She's a terrible tease but also my very best friend...

Dad - My dad enjoys WDW...but isn't quite as crazy about it as we are. He makes sure we fit in additional interesting historical/nature sites on our trips. Once we stopped at the Okefenokee Swamp, which was beautiful and also just has the best name ever.

Aramis - Aramis is my older brother and a Disney cast member working in food and beverage. He did his college program at Chef Mickey's, and we loved to go to the upper floors of the Contemporary to people watch and spy on him, lol! He loves it in Florida, and luckily doesn't mind when we all crash at his place. We'll be staying mostly at resorts for this trip though.



Porthos - Porthos is a rising college senior and recently returned from a semester of study abroad in London. We both love the Impressions de France movie in Epcot's France Pavilion (the pastries! and the bikes! and the cliffs! and the castles!), so when I got the chance to travel in Europe with Porthos on his spring break, we used the movie to plan our trip. It was EPIC.



The above is a picture of my third brother Athos, before he was turned into a frog.

OK, fine, so Tiana didn't actually turn him into a frog, but she did offer, which I thought was awfully considerate of her. Athos would've deserved it too. He loves dinosaurs, and sometimes he acts like one. But then he's seventeen, so what can you expect? He makes up for it when he's being fun, though.

Dart - Brother no. 4! In this picture he is taking on the one and only Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake of LTT. He recently turned 10 and is pretty proud about it. He LOVES legoes and never rests at Disney until we have gotten to the Lego Store. But he loves the rest of it too.

So that's the Snobbish family! Oh, and I almost forgot the inanimate objects that will be a part of the cast:



This is the strawberry! It's an ipod touch 5, so named because it is exactly and precisely the color of a beautiful pink strawberry. My real phone in the ancient, cheap, flip kind, but then I can just pull out the strawberry and pretend like I'm super fancy.

Since there's now FREE WIFI pretty much everywhere at Disney World, I can also use the strawberry to do all those fabulous new social media things. As my mother would say, "It's a whole new world, Gunga Din." (I have no idea why she says Gunga Din. lol.)

Via the strawberry I'll be doing live updates from the trip on my twitter, instagram, and vine. My username is bookishprincess on all of those. I also started vlogging on the Impressions de France IRL trip (I know...I'm almost embarassed to admit this...) and have no doubt I'll be doing some vlogs from Disney as well!

Some things I'm looking forward to on this trip...



...returning to the Kilamanjaro Club at the AKL...



...checking out more of New Fantasyland...



...and of course, as many cupcakes as possible!

Stay tuned, there's plenty of pixie dust coming your way!

Aloha!

Long time lurker here, like, really long, so I figured I should probably say hello at least once! I've always enjoyed your TRs, so I'm looking forward to another. I'm not the best at consistent commenting, but I'll be reading along for sure.

I hope it's a wonderful trip!

Another longtime lurker coming out from the shadows

I followed all of your previous trip reports but since I am leaving for WDW in a little over a week I thought now is the time. I might just see you in the parks! Have a great trip!!

Hello I just followed the link from your most recent trippie, and yay, I think I made the first page

I love Jane Austen too! (my only complaint is that she didn't write more books ) And the Poly is my favorite resort - just 70 short days until our third stay at the King Kamehameha (I probably spelled that wrong). But I have to say, I have NEVER had a cupcake at Disney!! Maybe have to remedy that in August....

Looking forward to coming along for the ride!
