The Bloggie Awards 8/21/10 - 8/27/10

It's the weekend once again! I hope you've had a magical week and and even magical-er weekend!

This week's blog posts have been quite eclectic. Many different things from different genres have caught my eye and I'm ready to share the best of the best (for me) for the week!

5. I love the backstories that Disney provides. And this week, over at the Main Street Gazette, Ryan has a great one on Ol' Man Island over at Riverside. (Which ties perfectly into our podcast episode this week, all about Riverside!)

4. Have an upcoming small wedding? Why not get married in a hot air balloon? At least one that can hold about 20 people! The Disney Wedding Blog talks about how if your wedding is just the right size and if you're looking for something unique, why not get married in the Characters in Flight Balloon!

3. Good Coffee....the thing that so many people search out at WDW. It just can't be found....or can it? The Disney Parks Blog talks about the fact that there are a few places where you can get a decent cup of joe.

2. Matt Hotchberg of Studios Central has been noticing some of the things I've been noticing that are problems with the way the Disney Parks are currently run (one of the higher things on my list...branding the different parks under the "Disney Parks" umbrella!). It's not that we hate everything that Disney is doing, it's just that we love the place so much that when we see things we think could (and should) be done differently, it's hard to keep our mouths shut. (Like a mother who can't keep quiet when her daughter does something she thinks is a poor choice...just on a different scale. lol!)

1. There is always talk about is the Disney Dining Plan worth it. And I've said it over and has to be looked at on a case by case basis. The dining plan doesn't always work for everyone. But over at the Touring Plans Blog, there is talk about why it may be worth it if you have kids.

Finally, I have an honorable mention of a blog article you should read. (I told many good articles this week and from so many different areas!) This last one if from The Disney Daddy Blog all about park etiquette that people should be adhering to.

So, I hope you enjoy these articles from the week! I'll see you on Sunday with News and Rumors! :)
