Disney World, Here We Come!

Well, we’ll be heading there in eight months, BUT, the trip has been booked! When Dan got his new job back in December, most of the vacation days for 2013 were already taken, so he took off the one week that was left: November 11-15th. This actually ended up working great for two reasons: 1) it’s the week after our anniversary, so we can treat the week as an anniversary trip, and 2) it’s the week after Disney’s Wine and Dine Half Marathon!

I have been reading so many recap blogs on last year’s W&D Half, and I am SO EXCITED that we finally get to run in a runDisney race! We booked our trip through Heather @ Through Heather’s Looking Glass, and now all that’s left is the registration for the race which opens on Tuesday. I am anxious about the race filling up quickly, so I will be purchasing our entries as soon as humanly possible!

We have decided to stay at Port Orleans Riverside which is where we stayed at our honeymoon (or as I like to call it, our Disneymoon). We may adjust the first few days of our trip based upon which resorts are host resorts for the race, but we’re crossing our fingers that Riverside will be selected as a host resort!

Since I am not making a whole lot of progress with the remembering to take pictures part of my goals, enjoy some photos from our Disneymoon back in 2009:


We were rocking our “Just Married” buttons!


Port Orleans Riverside – our room was straight ahead and a little to the left


At the PO Riverside resort with the Sassagoula River in the background


They had started decorating for Christmas – tree outside of Hollywood Studios


Waiting in line for the Toy Story Midway Mania – we were given two fast passes by a couple who had two extra because they had come to Disney on their honeymoon and wanted to pay-it-forward. Hopefully we get to return the favor and pay-it-forward to another couple in the future!



Hanging out in Norway and celebrating Dan’s Norwegian roots!


One of my favorite memories from the trip: Donald proposing!


And then posing for a nice picture Smile

November can’t come fast enough!! Happy running and traveling, everyone!

Is anyone else out there planning on signing up for Disney’s Wine and Dine Half this year?

  1. Oh my goodness, you are going to LOVE Wine & Dine! It is so much fun! It was my first race ever two years ago and I’m hoping to be able to do it every year as an “anniversary”, registration opens tomorrow…I’ll definitely be signing up!

  2. First, great photos — and I’m sooo jealous! That’s so cool that everything worked out for you guys to run the race. I’m sure Wine and Dine will be a BLAST! I’m working on saving all of my pennies for the Disneyland races, otherwise I’d be right there with you. Maybe next year! 😀
