Good, I'm not too late for a front row seat!

I totally empathize with the stressing over your planning! My poor hubbie had a lot of patience with me on our first trip with just the 2 of us to Disneyland. I had a meltdown in line for the Alice in Wonderland ride because we were supposed to be able to walk right on, and instead, there was a half hour wait 5 minutes after the park opened! He just gave me a hug (I'm sure he thought I was crazy) and suggested we jump out of line and move on. It took me a couple seconds to let go of my plan I had spent hours creating in Ridemax and just look for rides with short lines. Though, I have to say, planning dining is half the fun. I can't wait to see your food pics! That gives 3 times the pleasure: planning, eating, and then savoring the memory!

I want them all in one place before I begin so instead... I had time to pop over to your tr


Can't wait to hear about what all went on!!!

Hi Kim! So happy to see you here.

Oooh, I cannot wait to read all about your trip. I'll try and be patient.
I know what you mean about the pictures, though. I swore I wouldn't begin this TR until all my photos are edited, but I caved.

Whoo, thanks for joining. Have you done any kind of recap for the race or are you planning to? I'd love to hear what you thought about it.

Agreed! I wish I'd remembered to grab a picture for this TR, but oh well. Can't wait to read your update about the race!

Hi, and thanks for joining!

A half hour wait right after opening?! Yikes, I probably would've had a meltdown as well. But it's good that you were able to go with the flow, bet it saved you and your husband from more excess stress.
Food planning can be half the fun, especially when you walk into a restaurant knowing you've been waiting for that meal for 6 months.

Hi Alicia! Can't wait to hear about your trip!

I have to say that I agree it was hotter this year than our trip last year at the same time, but I didn't think it was too bad. I have read quite a few posts about people feeling like they were melting, LOL! We always head back to the pool for the afternoons though. That way we aren't in the parks during the hottest part of the day. We love our pool time!

I was thinking of doing a trip report and took notes the first 2 days. I should do a race write up. I still need to send an email to runDisney!

Welcome! Thanks for joining! I can't wait to talk about the EE 5K; I was afraid I wouldn't have anything new to say about it since I ran it in 2011, but there were a ton of different things.

Hi! Thanks for following me over here. I can't wait to write about how my mom rode next to you on RNRC and we were oblivious.
We took breaks in the afternoon all but one day, and oh man, we regretted that decision.

You should definitely do either a TR or a race recap! I love hearing what other people thought of the event, because the opinion of it varied drastically this year.

I'm here! I'm glad I haven't missed any of the good parts yet!

I'm so sorry that it was "surface of the sun" hot! May is so unpredictable in Florida, it can be nice and it can be brutal, I'm sorry you got the latter.

Poor All Stars, I agree, they definitely get second billing after Pop (and probably 3rd now that AoA is opening), but I love Sports most of all the All Stars!

Oh, I totally know how that goes. I told myself I'd wait awhile, too, but I just couldn't do it!

Hi and thanks for joining!

May really is unpredictable as far as weather goes. Last May, it was perfect, but we had a very warm winter, so I knew it was going to be a warm trip.

I've only ever been to Pop and ASSP, and while Pop is nicer, I like that Sports is smaller. It's such a short distance to the food court, bus stop, and parking lot.
Although, I do want to try AoA when it opens.

Haha, at least this way it's all written down while it's still fresh in our minds. Even with a travel journal, things can be forgotten.
