Episode 4 – Adults Only at Walt Disney World

Adults Only at Walt Disney World.  Is this really a thing?  We say YES !!!

We are often asked the question “Are there things to do at Walt Disney World just for adults?”  The answer is an astounding Yes.  In fact, we visit the parks regularly without our kiddos.  Don’t get me wrong….I love our kiddo adventures.  But sometimes, it’s great to get away with just a spouse, or even with some adult friends.  In this episode, we explore a few fun things to day for the 18+ (and in some cases, 21+)  crowd.

We explore several of our favorite “date night” restaurants and night club destinations.  

Park events such as the Epcot festivals and evening Magic Kingdom events are high on our list for adult-only adventures.

And don’t forget recreation and pampering in the spas or on the golf course.

Danny and Stacey are out of town this week, so Jeff and I explore some options, and share our favorite experiences as a couple at the parks and resorts.

Episode 3 – Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is the topic of discussion for Episode 3 of the My Mickey Podcast.  

Karen, Danny, Stacey, and Jeff all reflect on their favorite aspects of this year’s festival.

Of course, we start with the amazing food offerings in the Outdoor Kitchens.  From the honey cheesecake and the berry buckle to the violet lemonade and La Vie en Rose Frozen Slush, we give you our favorites (and tips on how to avoid a brain freeze).

Karen and Jeff share their experience on the Royal Tea Garden Tour in the United Kingdom Pavilion of Epcot.  A 90-minute tour of the tea gardens, so much information is shared about the different blends of tea, how different ingredients are grown, and the best way to prepare the various types of tea.  We even got to meet a 10th generation member of the Twinings family, Stephen H B Twining.

Garden Rocks is the concert series included with your park admission.  Danny and Stacey talk about their recent experience with the Garden Rocks Dining Package and seeing Starship in the America Pavilion.

In this episode, we are introduced to Barrels by the Bay, a unique non-profit that converts Coca-Cola syrup barrels into rain barrels, but also educates the community on water conservation issues.  Join them in painting barrels behind Mouse Gears all through the festival.

And of course, what podcast wouldn’t be complete without a discussion of merchandise, especially ears and Dooney bags.

Leave your comments below.  We’d love to know what you love about this year’s festival.
