    Here is a link to the video my DD took when we ran the DLR 5k this past Sept.

    Do not watch if you get motion sick....or have an aversion to brick pavers LOL! The video was literally shot on the run.....

    and is not of the best quality to say the least! However it does offer glimpses of both parks, the DL hotel facade, and the view of fireworks from our 10th floor room.

    For anyone who hasn't been to DLR, let me provide some perspective....

    The video begins in the parking lot adjecent to the Disneyland hotel, and the public parking garage.

    Then we walk a service road and arrive at the esplanade betwen the two parks, and turn left into DL. We walk through DL then re-enter the esplanade and walk into Disney CA adventure park. We loop around the edge of DCA and finish in the Hollywood section. Remember this has taken us only 3.1 miles!
    Next on the tape we stand in line to get some free autopia cars, the next shot is us having walked through DD and now facing the Sierra tower of the DLH. It shows our room on the 10th floor. The next shot has us in the room, watching fireworks in DL. just below us is the far edge of DD. In fact that voice you hear is the hostess of Rainforest Cafe announcing parties.

    Much more compact than WDW!

    THAT IS AWESOME!!

    Hi Judy From Boise! I always wondered if that Dis Title belonged to the lady wearing green who started the 5K with us. YES! We started right behind you - behind to the left. My daughter Ryan chatted up MacKenzie before the big send off about their red hair.

    I so love this video!

    Are you running again this year?! We are not - though very sad about it - Cannot believe they picked Labor Day Weekend.

    Anyways, wanted to say hello! I am marking this website!

    Well how cool is that ! I will watch it tomorrow and see you :)

    We are skipping this year, and hoping for another weekend next year ! But, who knows because Mackenzie is entering public HS this fall.....and our luxuery days of going for vacations during the school year maybe at an end.

    Yes, I hear that alot from friends whose children are entering HS. Maybe we can meet up and run in 2008. Let's just hope they pick a better weekend and not a holiday!
