A RunDisney dream come true!

It’s official! We’re heading back to Walt Disney World in Florida!  We are going with a great group of runners / walkers to compete in the Walt Disney World’s 2015 Marathon Weekend!

Eeek…I can’t wait!!

My bags are packed – this day can’t come soon enough! We are ready for some good times, warm weather and friendly competition!

Before we can go…I had to become acquainted with my MIL’s antique sewing machine and make up some sparkly skirts for our race costumes!

Sparkle Skirt - Red Sparkle Skirt - Blue Red Sparkle

Who goes to a Disney race without costumes?!?!?!

It’s clearly a staple requirement!

Beyond the races and the other ‘festivities’ we have in store for the group…I am mostly looking forward to seeing how much the ‘world’ has changed since I was there last! I mean…it’s been a whole year folks….for this Disney addict, that’s a really long time!!

We are staying at Port Orleans Riverside – aka – “home”. It’s my favourite resort! Not much has likely changed since I was there last. Maybe a new coat of paint and some room upgrades to keep the resort fresh!

Magic Kingdom has gone through plenty of changes since Jan 2014. The biggest – most exciting change will be the opening of the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train! My fast passes are booked, and I will post more on that later! 🙂

Hollywood Studios has mostly remained the same – except it will be the last time I get to see Sorcerer Mickey’s Hat 🙁 Removal begins the week I arrive.

Epcot and Animal Kingdom have undergone some minor changes – mostly invisible to guests in preparation of BIGGER things to come!

And last but not least…Downtown Disney’s transformation into Disney Springs is in full swing. I can’t wait to check out the progress!

Since it has started to snow here…I am dreaming of palm trees and warm sun as I type this post! I will be sure to post some pictures shortly in hopes of sharing some warm sunshine via good ole facebook!
