RAD Recap for May 18, 2014

Today I was able to get a small dose of Disney here in the Northeast.  I met up with my friend Estelle from This Happy Place Blog to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World’s Fair in New York…you know, the one where It’s a Small World and Carousel of Progress debuted??  This was a once in a lifetime experience!

We had a wonderful lunch and then made our way out to Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens.  It was a gorgeous day (well except for my frequent allergy attacks!) and perfect to walk around this park.  I’ll have a full report coming up this week for ya…but here’s me and my girl Estelle at the Unisphere 🙂


Also this weekend, B and I decided it was time to embrace summer even if it’s a little early.  On Saturday, I woke up with the desire to sit in the sun and eat seafood 🙂  So we headed out for lobster rolls and ice cream…the perfect New England afternoon!



I’ve also been taking in a lot more of the local activities up here in CT which I talked about a lot this week on RAD Living.  There was a great festival, the Westville Village Artwalk in New Haven last week.  Then B and I had an amazing meal at at local gastropub called Walrus + Carpenter…a nice nod to the poem in Alice in Wonderland 🙂

So the big runDisney news this week was the announcement of the inaugural Disney Castaway Cay Challenge taking place after the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend.  I’m very curious to see how fast this event sells out.  We shall see when it goes on sale this week on May 23rd.  Are you go to take on the challenge?

In case you missed some of the fun here this week, Sandy joined us for the second installment of Transformation Tuesday…what a great story!


I played another game of Kill, Refurb, Marry with the Disney Princesses…can you guess which one I killed??

And I hope you will welcome John as the newest contributor to RAD, bringing a west coast perspective with his Anaheim Antics!


Coming up this week is another Transformation Tuesday, a super cool giveaway (let’s just say it will be fun to hang with it!), and maybe a few other pieces of Disney geekdom.

Have a great week!
