if Backlot Express is open, they show Nestle chocolate milk on their menu. CS tends to have them. with a cart, it might be harder to find it. if i can't have it, i'll live. but it sure would be nice to find some!

You can always pack some in your checked bag, too! That's what I did for Princess, packed a shelf-stable single serve box. Maybe in a little cooler to keep it chilled? (I didn't need to do that at Princess, but early Oct. is another story...)

I would bring the choc milk with me. I have a feeling that quik might taste like chocolate milk but probably isn't quite the same. . Just get a little cooler bag in your gear bag to check?

And now I have a list started of "things hubby and son can be sure to bring for me".

We have an Igloo brand cooler backpack called the MaxCold. Bought it at Target for about $20. Put some frozen waters in there, put in the chocolate milk, and while I've never done that exact combo I bet it would still be nice and cold.

You probably know this, and maybe it was mentioned in the thread, but wanted to mention that it was booked as a package, just without tickets or dining. Because we didn't order tickets, the CM said she was putting in a round of minigolf for each of us; maybe that's the way they create the "package"? She said if we called later and added tickets, the minigolf would be taken off.

So it was $200 down with the rest to pay 45 days out. It'll be our first package; we've only used our DVC points or done room-only reservations so far. A new experience.

Well, I broke down and registered for something outside my comfort zone. A color run! Why is it that the 10miler seems less threatening to me. It won't be until July, so I have some time to get use to the idea.

BTW, Bumbershoot it is in Tacoma

Yeah!!!
I know that you like to get good times. Just remember, from what I hear, this is more of a fun walk. My first one is May 11.

I know... I am strange. I am fine running a race alone... but this getting color spit at me freaks me out a tad. I am urging my dh to sign up so I wont be alone... and yes... I am prepared to crawl if I have to just to survive. Besides... I am not even certain it is timed.

I don't think it's timed. There are 5 of us going. We are the Rainbow Rally Gals from Pa. We plan on strolling. Maybe twirling. I want to come out colorful!

I may fall down if I do that... you may have the "never to old" screen name... but seriously... I may be the one that is too old for this. but I am going to try and be brave.

I had seen that the other day, but it seems like it's *powdered* color being blown at you? Or is it splattered paint? The powder would scare me, since my lungs are touchy.

I also looked at the electric run in Puyallup; while looking at the site I was thinking "hmm", and then in the FAQs it actually addresses the questions about "hmm, is this a rave?" OK it doesn't say it just like that, but in my imagination it did.

yup...it is the cornstarch stuff... and I too worry bout my lungs a bit.

AND... I saw the electric run in puyallup too and was all excited and then thought is it a rave?

The very first 10k I ran has its annual race the very next day. I figure it would be better for me to go to that rather than stay up late doing?? Of course, they do say it is kid friendly....
