runDisney 2019: Race Day

Another run bites the dust! Race day came and went and today was an insane day! So my mom and I woke up at 3am got dressed and ready for the race and caught the bus at about 3:45am. We hung out at in front  of the stage until 4:30am, went over to the corrals and hung out for two hours due to the fact Disney decided to change up the run a bit and have mini waves in each corral so the traffic would be lighter. In my opinion, I don’t think it worked because we still got hit with walls of people, and walls of people who were walking. All and all the run took us 27 minutes to finish, I was hoping to PR this race BUT like I said there were so many people blocking it was hard to get around but it was still a lot of fun.

We got back to the hotel at 7 something, got in the shower and went straight to Disney Springs to pick up some gifts for family and friends. We headed back to the hotel hopped on the bus of shame (the bus to go home) and spent the rest of the day in the air. Overall the race was a lot of fun, 5k’s are my favorite because they take the least amount of time and I don’t get into my head. Congrats, to everyone who ran or participated in the 5k today because 3 miles is still a lot and you should be proud and wear your medal proudly because you accomplished those 3 miles! Good luck to everyone who are running, the 10k, 1/2, Goofy and or Dopey! You got this!

runDisney 2019!

Two weeks ago I had this semi crazy urge to check the runDisney website to see if there were any spots open for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 5k because I absolutely LOVED the medal and to my surprise there were still spots and without even thinking I signed my mom and I up for the race…but we couldn’t get off of work for the entire race weekend (unfortunately). So on my crazy spur of the moment 5k purchase I booked a hotel, and flight so we leave Wednesday, go to the running expo, pick up some merch (hopefully), then go back to the hotel and sleep. While Thursday we will run, if we don’t make it to the expo on Wednesday we will go Thursday and not go to Hollywood Studios and then fly home with the most magical 5k medal ever Oswald the Lucky Rabbit!

Halloween In The Parks!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween in the parks! My all time favorite season in the parks, so if you are a fan of Halloween here is what you can look forward to in Disneyland/DCA, WDW, Hong Kong, and Paris!

Disneyland/DCA:

Both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be decked out for Halloween. The Oogie Boogie popcorn bucket will make its return with a bit of an updated look. I was lucky enough to get the bucket last year so I don’t think I will be getting one this year UNLESS my BC wants one then I will of course try and get her one.

Disneyland/WDW:

The poison apple stein will also make its return to the park, but with an update as well instead of it being red its going to be green. I unfortunately have been trying to get the original poison apple stein for years now and have not succeed so I will attempt to get the green one hopefully I have better luck with this one.

Another thing coming to the parks is the brand new  premium popcorn bucket. So get ready to brew some potions because this cauldron premium popcorn bucket is not only the cutest BUT it lights up! This one I have to have, this is LIFE for me. So wish me luck!

Hong Kong Disneyland:

Now if you are planning on visiting Hong Kong Disneyland from September 13th to October 31st, 2018 you are in for a spooktacular treat. Jack Skelington and his friends will be turning the park upside down allowing guests to visit their hometown of Halloween Town where you can also visit Dr. Finklestein’s lab where he kept Sally captive. Make sure to keep an eye open for Oogie Boogie, because he might just sneak up behind you!

Disneyland Paris:

Starting October 1st, 2018 guests visiting Disneyland Paris can enjoy not only halloween BUT help Mickey celebrate his 90th birthday. October 1- November 4, 2018 you can celebrate the Halloween season with it’s brand new parade float featuring Mickey who will disappear and re-appear wearing three different costumes. For Mickey’s 90th birthday you can catch the celebration from October 1 all the way through the Christmas season.

There are so many things I want to see especially at Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland but this year I will only be attending the OG Disneyland which I am thankful for. What park would you like to visit during the Halloween season?

Blogmas Day 19/25: AP Lines

Merry Christmas to WDW Annual Pass Holders!

wdw_sign

Starting December 21, 2016 WDW will begin a new pilot program which will provide an AP holder only entrance line.

AP lined will be available at all four theme parks, as of right now its only for the entry itself with. APers will still go through security with non AP guests but things could definitely change as the pilot program evolves.

Personally i think it is a great idea and i am so stoked that WDW will be getting an AP entrance line, and because i am hopeful i am hoping that maybe just maybe Disneyland will follow this trend and Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will get there very own AP entrance lines.

How do you feel about the AP entrance lines in WDW? Do you think Disneyland will get them too? Let me know in the comments below.
