That could work. Ill have to call around and see what they'd charge us (the taxis). Hopefully it won't be too pricey. I'll have to bribe the driver with a bagel or something lol.

I was just thinking about this: if Blizzard Beach is closed for refurb until March 17 why don't the shuttle people from there instead than from DTD?
I know for a fact they are not doing anything to the parking lot area. People could even walk from there to Coronado, it's less than a mile.

Oh, I'm getting sooooo excited

I have few questions about the expo:

1) Do you think the New Balance shoes will be available on Saturday at the Expo? we don't arrive till Friday night, so Saturday morning is the earliest we can go. I hear in the past that the Dooney bags weren't even available by Saturday so I was wondering if it's a lost cause with the shoes, too.

2) If there's a chance the shoes are available, who's selling them? My DH & DILs gave me Disney gift cards for my birthday & Christmas for this trip and I was hoping I can use them to get the shoes, but is it Disney that's selling or New Balance (outside vendor)?

3) If we can't get to CSR directly and have to take bus from DD (or host resort), how can we be there so early (7:30am)? Do the bus from host resort start earlier than the ones from DD?

Thank you so much for being patient - those shoes just look so adorable!

Can't answer for sure but I know at Tink last month they had 150 pairs of shoes for each day. Once the 150 for the day was gone that was it but they had another 150 for the next day.

The shoes are sold by New Balance - not Disney. Sorry.

If they stay with the same pattern, they should have shoes for both days...a set number for each day. They are sold at the New Balance booth though, not Disney. I guess getting there that early is posing a problem though, I hadn't thought about it until the previous poster asked about it too...at DL it was easier because so many were in walking distance. Luckily, we're staying at CSR this time, booked before they moved the expo there even! If there's no bus service that early and they won't allow people other than guests of the resort to come in and park, I'm thinking the only solution will be taxi...but it's possible that they will stop the taxis at the security stop and ask for some sort of ID? Maybe you could just say you're there to have breakfast with a guest? I really have no idea...but, you could think about it this way...if you can't get in that early, thousands of others can't either It's gonig to make for a MAD DASH to be on the first bus out of any resort or parking lot when they do start running though.

I don't think we've ever paid more than $10-$15 to get around anywhere on property...most of the time, less than that. I hope it works for yall and you can get there early to get all the swag you want!!!

I finally got half of my costume today. My friend and I found really cute skirts at the little girl store, Justice. My friend got royal blue and is going to do a Snow White thing but I bought the black. I think I'm going to get a black shirt and bling it up with some hot pink and be Minnie. My running shoes are black and hot pink. I'm getting kinda excited now!!

WooHoo!! Just finished my last LR, 12 miles. I just had to take advantage of the beautiful day..sunny and 60. It was ugly, I won't go into details expect to say that I went out too fast. This is really something to be aware of when you start the Princess. Going out too fast usually lead to a crash and burn later. There are mile markers at every mile with the gun time, so if you are in a corral that starts later, just do the math to see if you are okay with your pace.

I see a lot of us are at CSR. I stayed at CSR for my first Princess Half too.

Seems like an awful small amount of shoes for the demand and the lines we witnessed at the WDW Half.

Thank you!

Just made the donation to put you up to saving 50 children. Figure if I'm going out to dinner tonight I have enough money to get shots for these angels !
