    Pre-Trip Pandemonium in a Pandemic! A DisneyGigi Pre-Trip Report.

    So happy you and B are going back! M and I definitely bought a *few* canning jars early during the pandemic, mostly to make homemade limoncello (ask @Darstarr!). But we have also enjoyed having them for making homemade veggie stock, pasta sauces, etc., and storing various leftovers. I don't...

    Same here. It’s funny how much your priorities can change in a few months!

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    Welp, we have received the final refund for the June trip. Luckily for us JetBlue changed our return flight by more than two hours so we were entitled to an actual refund instead of a travel credit. It took quite a while of waiting on hold and talking to various departments, but we took care of...

    I made a veggie “cottage pie” today! We may have just found our Thanksgiving entree! 😋

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    Welp, we have started cancelling reservations to get refunds. We knew it was coming but it still stings a little bit. Therefore, time for MORE FOOD PHOTOS! Potato leek soup made by me, inspired by Disney (Rose and Crown, BOG, etc.) Raspberry ricotta lemon cake made by M “Chicken”...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    Looks great! We’ve never made challah. The limoncello tastes soooo good and it was easy to make! We used Giada’s recipe but used less sugar to make it a little less sweet. So true! The first couple of weeks we were definitely eating our feelings. But now we’ve gotten into a better rhythm with...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    Who else is getting more into food and drink related projects right now? M is our resident baker and she has made (among other things) focaccia, cookies, and cakes. We are going to try a new raspberry ricotta cake soon, too! Last weekend we finally made homemade veggie broth. It’s something I...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    May the 4th be with you all! I’m looking back on my SWGE photos from the passholder preview we attended and opening day. I think we’ll watch ANH tonight! Things are not looking great for us going on this trip even if the parks do reopen in time. If we are able to make it work in October or...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    I have nothing really to report, but I decided to check the Tables in Wonderland site to see if they will be extending TiW memberships for the length of the closure, and...they are! I was briefly concerned that we might go in October and NOT have TiW since ours expires in September, but there's...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    The closer we get, the more it seems this trip won't happen in June. Even if the parks do reopen June 1, who knows what crowds will be like? And what the parks will be like? Do we really want to be part of the initial experiment that is reopening the parks? The good news: if the parks do stay...

    I hope your trip works out too!! Thank you! Here's hoping! I have only heard good things about JetBlue so I'm hoping we'll have a great experience. I couldn't decide how to react to your post. Thumbs up for hoping it happens? Sad face for missing each other? In the end I went with thumbs up...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    All right, let’s get going with some plans. If we go in June this will be the basic outline, and if we need to postpone we hope to keep a lot of the same activities. Dates: Sunday, June 14-Sunday, June 21 Hotel: WDW Swan (where else 😄) Cast: Me, M, probably FIL and MIL, possibly my bro Jay...

    Pre-Trip The "I hope this trip happens but who knows because of coronavirus" trip

    Where to begin? You all know what's going on in the world. It's affecting all of us in many different ways. I spent the first week or so feeling not much more than despair and sadness, but I am trying to focus on and appreciate the positives. For example, my dear M is able to work from home and...
