Trip report time! All aboard to hear about Kathy's Disney Cruise Line adventure and Jeff's non-park Disney weekend as well as all the news you need. We cover price hikes, a new behind the scenes tour at Animal Kingdom, a new special fireworks event at California Grill, and new character dining at the Boardwalk. John is encouraged to hug an elephant and we debate the merits of "Sunday gravy". Join us in the MouseLife!
