The Bloggie Awards 7/10/10 - 7/16/10

Welcome to this week's Bloggie awards! Lots of great things this week, so let's dive on it!

5. I've heard about it from many places (namely Lou Mongello who practically championed the thing!) but the Carrot Cake Cookie at the Writer's Stop at DHS looks amazing! The Disney Food Blog has the answer on why this treat is so delectable! (I will run, not walk to the Writer's Stop the next time I'm in Orlando! And so should you!)

4. I'm a big advocate of Lines, the mobile wait time service of The Unofficial Guide. Now, they've brought us something schedules are available now on the phone as well! This is gonna help so much next trip!

3. I am so loving how The Disney Parks Blog is being used to relay information to us guests and fans lately. And this week, they did it again as they released information about a new excursion that's gonna take place on the African Savannah at Kilimanjaro Safaris. (At an extra cost.) Animal Kingdom isn't my favorite park, but I love these tour type things, so this looks like it may be something I try in the future. And it's definitely something that an animal lover would want to check out. (PS: as an aside because I'm so excited to Dream next June, for those of you traveling on the Disney Dream, you need to check out this video showing before and after moments of some of the ship.)

2. There hasn't been a lot of info coming out yet about the new Taste of Africa Street Parties that are taking place this summer at Disney's Animal Kingdom...until now. Another post from The Disney Food Blog has an in depth look at just what this event has in store for park guests. Definitely looks interesting!

1. Finally, I love a good tribute video and no one does them better than Martin Smith. He's phenomenal at what he does and gives such detail. Progress City USA had a great link to his video about the Norway Pavilion.

That's gonna do it for this week! Hope you enjoyed some of the great articles (and videos) posted! As an aside, if you haven't checked out my blog topic for the week on Meets at WDW, you need to. I explain why meets are a great way to meet up with Disney friends, especially since they can be done in a carefree environment. I hope you all will check back on Sunday for latest News and Rumors.
