My October trip report – PREP061

I just returned from a Disney World trip full of bucket list items and each night, I recorded audio recapping the day. Today, I have all of those clips included in my trip report.

I also have a quick tip with a way to access your My Disney Experience info regardless of whether or not you have an internet connection.


These are notes from this episode. There’s much more info included in the audio so be sure to listen to the episode for a better explanation.

Bucket list trip items

In this episode, I discuss our first stay at The Dolphin, dinner at the Chef’s Table, my thoughts on the Wild Africa Trek and what I’d do differently at Party for the Senses.

Quick tip of the day

Take a screenshot of the reservations in your My Disney Experience app so that if you don’t have an internet connection or the app is having trouble opening, you can access the info from your camera roll.

Did you ever write up the Africa Trek? Did I miss it?

Hi Shannon! I love you blog, but am always disappointed when so much of your info is in the podcast rather than on the blog itself. Have you considered having a typed transcript of your podcasts for those who aren't able to listen? Keep up the great work!

No, I haven't. The audio can be listened to on-the-go through iTunes or the Stitcher app so it's much more convenient than the text for many people.

Thanks, Shannon, for sharing your trip report with us. I was intrigued with one comment you made though. You said that the weather was very warm and that kind of threw me in a loop. I thought that it being fall, it would be cool. I have to share with you though, where I am living, which is the country Malaysia, the only difference in our weather is either it is hot and humid or it's raining. Do you remember the temperature when you felt hot/warm in the Epcot?

It was 90 degrees and humid every day of our trip.

Shannon can you add the contact info for the car service to the show notes? I need to arrange a car service for our combo Universal and Disney cruise trip . Thanks :)

I'm confused about Dophin/Swan. They are the same hotel? And they are on the Disney site under "where to stay" but not considered "on property" although they are? Were you able to book as an "onsite guest" in advance as an "on property guest" with FP+? I read your pros/ cons of Disney resorts post but couldn't find this info. Thanks, Shannon!!
