Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

Very excited to be down to 37 days until our first trip to the Flower and Garden festival, especially since it's our first trip without the kids since they were born. Going to be fun to see how the festival compares to Food & Wine. Also running in the Dark Side Challenge on our anniversary. Can't th...

Trip Report Oct 18-24

Just got back from a week at WDW and the Boardwalk Resort. The boardwalk has replaced the Polynesian as my favorite resort. The convenience of transportation to both EPOCT and the Studios is definitely a plus. We used bus transportation to the MK twice and never waited more than 20 minutes (10:30 - ...

Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

Only 5 more days until my next trip. Going to be the 1st trip in a while that I don't have to run a race while there (did the Disneyland half instead). Looking forward to the Food and Wine Festival without having to watch what I eat. :D

Boardwalk Parking lot construction?

I am planning a trip in mid to late October and noticed that the Boardwalk has a parking advisory on the hotel website. When I called Disney travel they knew nothing about this. Since I will have a car, I'd hate to have to pay for valet every night because the self park lot is unavailable. Anyone kn...

Re: Disneyland First Timer

Thanks for the feedback. I'm looking forward to it. I would consider myself an expert when it comes to WDW but I'm a little out of my element at DL. Once I got as far as making it to DL right up to the gate but had meetings all day and could not find the time for a visit.

Disneyland First Timer

I will have the opportunity to visit Disneyland for the first time next year. All my previous trips have been to Disney World. My reasearch has suggested that they are more different than similar. Any tips for a first timer?

Re: stream down? report it here.

The scheduled stream is still down. I tried both my computer and the I-Phone app. I love this channel as my Thursday afternoon goto channel when I'm not travelling. I love the Adventureland block in particular.

Re: Polynesian Construction

Gosh, the door thing sounds like it could be a safety issue with it being propped open. And I wonder why they wouldn't think to add some buses to make up for the inconvenience the much longer walk?? What did you think of the Food & Wine festival? Did you try any of the food offerings or special cla...

Polynesian Construction

I just got back from 6 nights of food and wine fun at the Polynesian. I have stayed here several times and was aware of the construction when I booked and was prepared for some inconveniences. This trip was a combination of the good, the bad, and the ugly. First the good: The Polynesian did a good j...

Re: I have only ......... days/months till I go again.

T - 7 days and counting. Starting with MNSSHP on Haloween and ending with the Food & WIne Half marathon. Sounded like a good idea in March, train all summer for my first 1/2 marathon, be there for the Halloween Party on Haloween. Now a week out I'm thinking to myself "what did I get myself into?". :...

Re: Favorite Food - 2014 Food & Wine Festival

From past expierence on this race weekend, Wednesday & Thursday are not very crowded. Friday night is the first MVMCP at Magic Kingom which may thin out the crowd at Epcot a l...

Re: Christmas Decorations

Most everything will be changed over the first week of November. I've been there on Haloween for the last MNSSHP and then show up 7 days later for the first MVMCP and the transformation is amazing. Doing it again this year.

Re: Training Runs

I signed up for my first Wine & Dine 1/2. I've never run close to that before (only 5k's). I decided to use Jeff Galloway's 18 week training program, but I started in Feburary so the plan was to complete it and then maintion at that level for the next 18 weeks leading up to the race. One issue I'm r...
