We will be sailing away on our second Disney Cruise in October. I am so excited and I’m already starting to plan what I’m going to pack. One night of the cruise will be Pirate Night. Some guests dress up, some don’t but I wanted to this time since I didn’t on our first cruise. I don’t really wear costumes often and I didn’t want to search for one so I decided DisneyBounding was the way to go.
Welcome to those of you joining me from Home is Where the Mouse Is and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail.
In addition to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, on Friday, October 31st and Saturday, November 1st from 5:30pm – 9:00pm you can also attend the Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic. Stroll the causeway and sample the offerings from the Swan and Dolphin’s award winning chefs and meet an all star line-up of award-winning chefs including Todd English, a celebrity chef, restaurateur, and cookbook author. You’ll also meet Laurent Branlard, the only two-time winner of the World Pastry Team Championship as well as several more of the world’s top chefs.
Enchanted Tales with Belle combines a character meet and greet with a little Disney magic. The results are pretty cool in my opinion. Here is a brief description that will hopefully give you an idea of what to expect if you use a wheelchair. I don’t want to give away too many details, you really should experience it without knowing too much, but I wanted to give you a few tips.
The Jungle Cruise has always been one of my favorite attractions. One of the reasons why is because I can stay in my wheelchair to experience it and not have to worry about transferring into the ride vehicle.
It’s time for Kill, Refurb, Marry with Estelle from This Happy Place Blog and Melissa from Mouse on the Mind. This month’s topic is Disney Parks Transportation. I thought this one would be easy but nope. Not easy. Also, I may be cheating but I didn’t actually kill anything this month. So here goes.

There are lots of ways to travel between the parks at Walt Disney World but one of my favorites is the Friendship Boats. They aren’t the fastest way to get where you are going but they are wheelchair accessible and the ride is always a great way to take a break and relax.
It rained every afternoon of our trip but on the evening we had tickets to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party it decided to RAIN. We got to the Magic Kingdom around 5:00, took some photos on hung out on Main Street for a while, and then headed to Adventureland. We thought we would just sit in Tortuga Tavern for a little while until the rain passed and then head over to get in line to meet Captain Jack Sparrow.
