Labor Day Weekend 2018 at Disney: Day 3

It wouldn’t be Labor Day weekend in Florida without rain and we got plenty of it today. Normally we would start Monday out at the hotel pool but this year we decided to go to one of the parks instead. Of course, this was mainly because Monday afternoon was the only time we were able …

SysAdmin Day 2018

Why did the sysadmin cross the road? To get coffee, why else would one be outside? ~Unknown It’s the last Friday of July, which means it’s time once again to thank your local system administrator(s) on System Administrator Appreciation Day. To my fellow system administrators, congratulations on another year well-done keeping the world running. 😀

Labor Day Weekend 2015 at Disney: Day 3

Normally, when we’re at Disney for Labor Day, we spend Monday morning at the hotel, then do a little shopping at Downtown Disney before heading home. This year, however, we decided to skip Downtown Disney (still in the throes of its transformation into Disney Springs) and spend more time at the Magic Kingdom instead. And …

Labor Day Weekend 2015 at Disney: Day 2

There aren’t any early Extra Magic Hours on Sunday so we slept in a bit before taking the bus from the Wilderness Lodge over to Hollywood Studios this morning. We didn’t make it in time, unfortunately, for our Tower of Terror FastPass+ reservation, but did see the Frozen Summer Fun parade (complete with “snow”) as …
