Cool I won't say I'm in love...but I am!! A Feb '14 GSC PTR! (NEW 2/9)

Grab a water bottle, throw on your sweat bands, and lace up those sneaks' because we've got 19.3 magical miles ahead of us!



That's right, folks! The DISters (DIS sisters- disneyhorselover and I) are back running the Walt Disney World Enchanted 10k and Princess Half Marathon (together known as the Glass Slipper Challenge) and we're inviting you to join us! Whether you'll be earning your own pair of glass slippers, or reading from home, sit back, relax and enjoy the run!





For my new friends, I'll do some introductions!

Meet Emily:



I'm 20 years old and I love Disney, running and crafting.

I wasn't raised in a Disney-or-die family but have grown to love the parks over the past 3-4 years. I've traveled twice as a kid, and once this year with my sister. I hope to continue to see the World annually over the next couple of years! I especially love planning my fantasy Disney vacation with my sister. Growing up, I always loved to watch my beloved Disney VHS, especially the Little Mermaid!

I'm not narrating this PTR/TR alone! My partner-in-crime is my DSis Caitlin, whose joining me for the ride...and the run! All of her writing will look
like this.


Meet Caitlin:



Like Emily, I also enjoy Disney and running, but rather than crafting, I'm much more likely to be found on the back of a horse. I am lucky enough to have my dream job, training horses for a living. My favorite Disney movie changes from week to week, but the main stays are The Lion King, and more recently, Tangled.

I can't quite remember when I got bit by the Disney bug, but I went once as a child and then started going again when I was in college, and have been fortunate enough to travel to Disney several times over the past few years, though not as frequently as I'd like!


This trip we'll be traveling with our mom (DM, I suppose), and Caitlin's friend R.

Meet Mom (aka MJ):



Mom likes a good vacation- no matter where it is! She also loves to read, and reads over 70 books each year (yes- she actually counts!)

She first visited Disney with DDad on their honeymoon over 25 years ago. Though MJ doesn't love Disney quite like DSis and I, she tolerates our obsession and is very excited about going on a girl's trip! She won't be running but is excited to cheer us on with a sign and her Mickey clappers.


Meet R:



R is my best friend from college. She didn't go to Disney for the first time until she was 21, when we went for senior spring break. Since then, she has also fallen in love with The World, and has been able to go for a few more day trips since interning and then moving to Florida. Since we first booked, R was accepted to Vet School out of the country and now will only be able to cheer us on in spirit!

Welcome one and all!

Anne, I wish I was doing marathon weekend! I'll be excited to read about your experience!

The color run was a lot of fun. I probably wouldn't pay to do it again (the price is a little steep) but definitely something to experience once!

This will be our last update for a few weeks because I'll be doing some traveling! Hopefully I'll have some beautiful pictures to share with our next update.

Hi! I'm just joining in! I'm running the GSC too! And staying at BWV, in a studio, on rented points! SO funny.

I also just did the same thing you did when the discounts came out I booked POP for Thursday night because flights were cheaper and I couldn't change my BWV stay.

I'm super excited for the extra time in Disney and for extra time at the expo Friday, I can't wait!!

Talk about twinning! At this rate, we're bound to be neighbors that weekend!

Seeing as our dates match, please feel free to chime in any time with your plans or thoughts! Love to hear from fellow GSCers!

Hi Emily and Caitlin! I'm officially on board for the PTR. I am not a runner, the most I've done is a 5K, but the Disney runs look SO fun.

UCONN?! Haha, I go to PC, and I looooove basketball, and UConn used to be our big rival...but now that we're not in the same conference, we can be friends.

My dad and I also were there for Marathon weekend!! We went to DHS on the day of the race and it was so cool seeing the guests run through the park.

I've never stayed at the Boardwalk but I've visited and it is beautiful!!

'Ohana is phenomenal and Wishes is also my favorite thing ever.

I loooooove Via Napoli. It's great food, and if you split pizza with people it's a good deal for a full-service! The arancini is a good appetizer too.

KONAAAAAA. I love Tonga Toast so much!

I've stayed at all the All-Stars and I think they're great! Pretty small, but they work for small groups.

Sorry your friend can't go!!! I'm glad everything got worked out though, and resort touring will be lots of fun.
