Lol I don't know many people who would ever wait that long
Rumor has it they drained the water on the ride and refilled it with beer. The person loading the boats hands you a straw as you board.

But still, to get to 70 minutes, surely the beer overflowed and shorted out the sound system too.

A 70 minute wait on IASW wouldn't just be a Brazillian tour group. It would be the entire population.

I know I don't post much in here, but I do still think of you and wish you well. If you need me for something specific, you'll often find me on FB. Otherwise, I'll pop back around soon enough.

Ciao for now.
Stopher, glad you popped in. Enjoy the cruise.

New job is awesome, they've shown more faith in my ideas after only one week than my old employer did over my last year there.
That is good news Randy. Congrats.

Finished in 2:36 or so and I ended up in the medical tent because my BP was a little too elevated for myself, quick turn around thou a little extra fluid goes a long way.
I will see if I can figure how to put together a short Trip report.


Oh and I had my first Dole Whip, I like.
Congrats on the race. Glad it was only a quick trip to the medical tent.

Listened to the Dis Unplugged podcast today. Eric gave a shout out to our little forum and mentioned your meet up.

You might also want to listen to the above mention podcast. One segment they had 4 of the runners (including Eric and his wife) talk about their experiences.

It was a good race minus the weather. After running Tink in January we were expecting more Disney cast members and more of the behind the sense stuff we saw in Disneyland. A lot of the route was on the freeway between Animal kingdom and WWoS. But we had fun and the after party was decent. We would probably do it again. Metal was worth it.

It was ridiculously hot!!!


I'll give my 2 cents; The run itself was great (though hot). Well organized, plenty of water/powerade stops, and things along the way to keep your mind off the run(characters etc.). The post-party was a mess though. I don't think ending it inside a park is a good idea. DHS was way overcrowded and confusing to get to bag check, etc. We were really looking forward to the party, and ended up riding Star Tours once and heading out because it was a so crazy. Also, it's pretty late when you finish, so I may have just been a bit cranky...
That's ok I was late getting a Pm out. Glad you got a meet in, maybe next time.
I agree with the race report DHS was a mass of people and not much direction. We did the great movie ride and left. The only character I was hoping to see an get a picture with was Stitch and as we came up he went to change out, so no picture .

After EE the park was crazy because parts of the park were sectioned off for the race. That plus the darkness made it really difficult to get anywhere and added to the confusion. Did the same thing happen after ToT?

A not great Disney race is still better than most any other racing experience.
We ended toward the back of the pack sense we walked most o the course and the park was packed when we got to the park. I think it would have been better before the 7000 finishers in front of me finished. But it also seemed like there were a lot of guests that bought party admission and our bus was at least half guest and half runners.


And yes Any Disney Run is better than an ordinary run. With the heat and humidity I had flash backs to Summerfest run 2011 were the course was closed early because they ran out of water before mile 5 and the elites used up all the water past that. I have to admit Disney did a great job with hydration avalible I the course even for me in the back of the pack.

Look at you, beating up on IASW. I might not mooch off of you as long as I planned for that comment.
