Weekly Round Up: February 21

You've Got a Friend in Me

Hey howdy hey! Here’s the Round Up, cowboys.  This week we’ve got a barn full of great Disney stories for you.

Before we get to that, we’d be remiss if you didn’t remind you about our upcoming trip: Tracy lands in The World on Thursday, with Melissa Sue joining her on Sunday. We can’t wait!!

And, if you haven’t signed up to join our Leap Day Live Blog, today is your last chance: we’ll be sending out login information tomorrow. Which means that One More Disney Day is almost here! How are you planning to spend it?

Mouse on the Mind on the Web
We’ve had a very busy week!!

The Suitcase Scholar features Tracy’s first cruise excursion: a horseback ride and swim! (Melissa is so jealous.) She also wrote a post on bathrooms in New Orleans (just in time for Mardi Gras) and reviewed the Rays, Reefs and Rum Point tour.

On Disney Food Blog, Melissa Sue wrote a guest review of Coral Reef Restaurant.

As a guest blogger for The Affordable Mouse, Melissa Sue also wrote about a night “out” at home for the Thrifty Thursday column.

Melissa Sue continues to blog The River on The Disney Blog, this week recapping the series’ third episode, Los Ciegos.

Our Favorites This Week
Parkeology‘s Shane wrote about some awesome new t-shirts available in Disney World. Melissa Sue loves the “How To” cartoons, so this is right in her wheelhouse.

Matt, of Studios Central, offered tips for getting your top score on Toy Story Midway Mania for wftv.com. We’re preparing to try these out on our upcoming trip.

Our pal Lindsay wrote a review of the (free!) Wonders of the Wilderness Lodge tour for Touring Plans Blog.

On WDW Fan Zone, Disney Guru Kelly wrote about the red phone boxes in Epcot. We’re planning to make a few calls in the coming days …

Former Cast Member Ariel Snow writes on WDW Dads about what she’d do with One More Disney Day … if she were working. It’s so magical when cast members are as excited as guests to be in the Parks!

Susan, on Dining with the Mouse, shared the recipe for Sunshine Seasons’ key lime tart. Yum yum yum.

Meet the World posted the second half of their Dapper Day coverage. We love the woman riding sidesaddle on the carousel. Truly dapper!
