Celebration Time!

Post the marathon I took my time and got ready for some time at the Magic Kingdom. I always spend some time here after the marathon for some photos.

My last time seeing the lights this trip.

Dinner that night was at Ohana but first I met up with @Keels, @croach, @jennamfeo and 1 and 2 at Mizner's at the Grand Floridian. On the way in I saw some Shenanigans members. Keels was of course cheering on her Saints. We were sitting there and a guy and his wife sit down next to us. We are all watching the game and we find out he is a Pats fan of course. This was towards the end of the game and it was a pretty good game (way better than that boring Super Bowl) and the guy kept making stupid comments. The Saints clinch the game for the most part and Keels yells at the guy "HEY GLASSES! How do you like that?" He was wearing sunglasses on his head. He says yeah see you in a few weeks at the Super Bowl JAMBALAYA! We all were like what? He just says Jambalaya at the end of that comment and walks out. So for the rest of the trip (and still ongoing really) Jambalaya is our running joke.

We then walked over to the Poly for Ohana. We watched Happily Ever After @Princess KP joined us as well. Ohana was good. It was't great but I would go again. There are certainly other places I would choose first. I then took a lyft back to Pop for the night. Big Pandamonium day tomorrow!

Up Next: I missed a baby giraffe!

I am dying over these pictures of you all solo on these rides. Like did you shower? Did you still smell like a Marathon?! Why is no one in that train car with you?? LOLOL. Plus, I don't think Disneyland Pirates has a photo op in it and now I am grumpy that I didn't ride it last trip.

Don't forget the finger point when he yelled JAMbalaya! What a trip. Haha.

    People must not like me. I swear I showered. The Mine Train this family wanted to all ride together so they waited back. Nobody really knows where to look for the WDW pirate photo.

    JAMbalaya!!

    So question regarding the races. In order to do them do you have to have a park ticket to run the race? I noticed they go throughout the parks.

    Also, I love the photos with all your medals after the race. What a great memory!

    Nope, they are all done before the parks open except for the marathon but no park ticket is needed. That would be odd if that was a requirement.

    Thanks!

    Great medal pictures! That's hilarious and awesome that you are alone on mine train though.

    I never heard the story where Jambalaya came from. So did he say it Jam like in jam and jelly?

    Yeah he was just kind of all around arrogant Pats fan so I kind of wish the Pats lost solely because of him lol.

    Love the medal pictures, especially with the character statues. I was thinking about getting a beer in EPCOT during the marathon and was wondering if they’d have people taking it from us before we left the park to hit the finish line. Now that I know the answer, next year!

    Thanks! I think there would be a lot of upset runners if they made you dispose of your beer/margarita!

    I didn’t want to finish the marathon with a margarita in my hand...just in case it was a one and done. But, since it wasn’t, that might just be on my list for 2020!

    Nice medals photos. I should have taken more with mine, but I get impatient.

    Now I'm hungry for jambalaya.
    Thanks! Understandable since you were with your family. More time to do little things when you're solo.

    Great job! I also finished last year with a frozen margarita and the DID make m toss it before they let me on the bus back to the resort. I was so sick I didn't want to hang around to finish it but what a waste, lol!
