WDW Marathon Weekend 2016: Accommodations

WDW Marathon Weekend 2016: Accommodations

This was my first official visit to Walt Disney World staying on my Disney Vacation Club points at the Boardwalk. And it was amazing. (I know all the signs have “BoardWalk” but I can’t bring myself to type that so I’m just going with Boardwalk.) I’ve stayed here for the Dopey Challenge once before in … Continue reading

Dopey Packing Challenge

Dopey Packing Challenge

I’m special: I pack for the Dopey Challenge using only my carry on suitcase and the one personal item allowed by the airlines. That’s right, no checked luggage. Who’s got money to pay those fees?! If you’re doing your first ever challenge and traveling from out of town it can be tricky. Allocating luggage space … Continue reading

Counting Down to Marathon Weekend 2016

Counting Down to Marathon Weekend 2016

It’s usually a pretty seamless transition from Christmas Carols to Disney classics once the holidays are over because that means it’s time for an annual tradition: the January trip to Disney World.  My sister and I have gone to Disney World the second weekend in January for the last 7 years and this will be … Continue reading

Summer is over. OR IS IT?

Summer is over. OR IS IT?

Labor day is done so all the relaxing emptiness of summer is gone. There are college students everywhere, everyone’s back at work, rowing is back on at 5:30am, but the weather didn’t get the message so in D.C. we have highs in the 90s all week and the sun isn’t rising until well after 6am … Continue reading

Slight deviation from the norm

Slight deviation from the norm

A lot of people are very upset if the runDisney merchandise sells out before they get there. I’ve been okay with that, and actually have an extra Dopey magnet that I can offer up to anyone who did the Dopey and wasn’t able to get one. Solidarity with my dopey brethren. Anyway. Generally speaking, I … Continue reading

Wine & Dine Race Recap

Wine & Dine Race Recap

Disclaimer: I totally paid for this trip myself despite my efforts to get runDisney and/or New Balance to pay for me. I attended no meet-up, and not because I didn’t tweet runDisney that they should invite me to the party since I was in Epcot anyway. @runDisney no really I'm giving you like 15 minutes … Continue reading

My Magic My Ass

My Magic My Ass

My Magic+ feelings are just… seething with rage? I’m like freaking Maleficent here and my apartment building is the forbidden mountain. I don’t know. Apparently, the woman who said she was going to fix everything for me on Thursday night decided afterward that she wasn’t going to fix anything beyond what she had done on … Continue reading

They’re heeere

They’re heeere

My Magicbands arrived today. I got an email that it was delivered around 10am so I spent my whole day at work antsy and I couldn’t wait to go home. Which is basically a normal day but now I had something exciting to pick up! I spent the evening on the phone with Disney squaring … Continue reading
