Extra! Extra! Read All About It! March 31, 2013

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

We want to start by letting everyone know that we’ve joined FlipBoard (you can get the app for your iPhone and/or your iPad here). And we’re trying out the magazine feature… each week we’ll create a magazine of things that we’ve seen or done relating to Extra Walt Disney World Magic. We invite everyone to come by and check it out – we’re known as “Adults exploring Disney World” in FlipBoard! Let us know what you think and if you have any questions, feel free to post them here or send us an email at flip@extrawdwmagic.com.

And don’t forget, we’re on twitter @extrawdwmagic!

Links to our posts from the past week…

  • We present our first tasting of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival for 2013 – the spring pancake at the Lotus House (China booth), we weren’t very impressed, sad to say – but there are other items at this booth that we’re likely to try, such as the pan-fried vegetable bun
  • Also, we attended our first professional baseball game at ESPN Wide World of Sports – the Atlanta Braves against the Washington Nationals… of course, we had popcorn, peanuts, beer, and hot dogs at the game (no cracker jacks tho!)

From around the ether…

  • We didn’t make it over to The Grand Floridian to see their 2nd Annual Easter Egg display, but we do have some links so that you can take a virtual trip there yourself!

    • On The Go in MCO shows us how large and varied the display is (here)
  • The interweb is chock full of information about the Flower & Garden Festival (we’re waiting for the Easter and Spring Break crowds to disperse before going back for another trip around World Showcase)
