Isn't time alone just wondering and window shopping at Disney Springs the best? Your ornament looks stunning! May I ask how much a personalized one costs?
I love them! I have been getting them since 2009 and they always turn out great!Okay, I didn't know about these ornaments, but I'm going to have to get one in January! Such a great souvenir idea
Ugh, me too - part of why I started this TR already! I can't believe I was there less than a week ago...Can't wait to read the rest! I'm still in Disney mode from the weekend, so I'm stalking all the TRs possible.
Thanks for reading so far!So excited to be reading along on your latest trip!
Yes!! I really enjoyed it - I think it may be my new WDW arrival day tradition!Isn't time alone just wondering and window shopping at Disney Springs the best? Your ornament looks stunning! May I ask how much a personalized one costs?
Isn't it such a weird feeling to just have a trip be over after planning and planning for it? GAHHHHFollowing along! I just got back late last night and already can't wait to relive the weekend through your trip report
Right?? I am pretty stubborn at Disney and feel like I have been there enough that I shouldn't need a map, but this was only my 2nd visit to DS so I should have just given in and gotten a map!I totally agree about Disney Springs- It is tough to navigate, especially at night.
Right?? I love it!That ornament is so pretty! What a great job on personalizing it.
GAHHH I know. I couldn't justify the bags themselves (they are SMALL! And not something I'm sure I'd use outside of a Disney trip) but I was really thinking about the card holders next to the bags. Proud of myself for resisting!Those Kate Spade bags!!
I've stared at them longingly on line, but cannot bring myself to pay that kind of money for them. But I do adore them.
Haha, not that I saw! I did see a few guys wear shirts that said "why are all these princesses chasing me?" which I thought was funny.Those phone cases are cool but I wonder if they had one that said "Live like a Beast, Run like a Beauty?" I'd crack up if I saw a fellow running with a shirt like that at Princess. Some guy somewhere...make that happen!
Thank you for noticing!Your rose hoodie is very race weekend appropriate. You get an A+ in "theme-ing." Walt would be proud.
It's probably best that you do. Very small, very expensive bag!I am ignoring those purses with the ears.
Right?? I loved that so much! Since my Dopey one from January had a medal on it, I wanted one here too - I think I threw the CM for a loop asking for that, but she pulled through!OMG that little medal painted on your ornament! Such a good idea. Do you happen to know if there is anything similar at DL? If not, I'm 100% going to hit up that shop in the Fall at WDW.
You basically just described my dream job. I need to make that happen!You know that every trip report you put out, I'm finding myself adding one more thing to my race weekend checklist right? Disney should give you some % kickback for being an "influencer."
You're lucky! I got there Wednesday night and they only had 15 passenger vans. Uhh, no thank you, Alamo.Not terrible, especially since this car was f-r-e-e! I picked a white Toyota Camry from the garage and headed to Disney Springs - I was parked by 12:30.
So, I'm gonna go ahead and be an enabler...I saw yesterday that the Kate Space bags are on sale! 25% off with promo code PURPOSE (ahem - @roxymama @ZellyB )I'm audibly oohing and aahing over everything! I should have went to the springs first thing! Ghirardelli makes everything better! Earl of sandwich, my favorite! Loooove the ornament and the Kate spades! Good thing I'll be heading back in 37 days!
I definitely recommend runDisney solo trips! I felt so bad that I was messing up the schedule for my friends this weekend - I felt pressure to keep up with them (not from them, from me). I sort of like totally controlling the schedule for weekends like this. I'm glad I went with them and it was fun, but I ran myself ragged!So excited to see your TR! I'm still at WDW and I'm already missing the race weekend! I might be hooked ---- wine and dine is calling my name. Even solo might be fun....hmmmmm.
Yes! They made multiple announcements about it and had the flight attendants sit down and I was sort of going to my happy place and it wasn't that bad. Alright then!I always feel like the anticipation of turbulence is worse than the actual! I hate flying and it makes my anxiety that much higher.
I think it would be tough with young kids. Lots of stuff to look at but not really anything to do, ya know?We skipped our evening at Disney Springs this week and spent time at DHS. I'd love to get there but it isn't as conducive for the girls, esp the almost 2yr old.
The generic one is available online! There I go enabling again.I looked for a rundisney ornament at MK and was sad they don't seem to hav generic ones (and the PHM was sold out already at the expo when I got there). Love the ornament you got!
Joining in!! I'm Jackie I just signed up for my first runDisney events, the 5 and 10Ks marathon weekend next year, so I am very interested in reading about all things runDisney in your TR!
Totally agree about the faster thing...I don't like flying but I REALLY don't like road trips, either!I am with you on the flying thing--I only do it because it gets me to WDW faster, but there is absolutely nothing I enjoy about the whole thing!!! especially bumps in the sky!
Yes, I love it! They had ornaments at the race expo, but I think mine is so much better! I may be biased though.Love your idea to commemorate the weekend with an ornament--it looks beautiful, and the little medal is just too much!
Thanks!!Can't wait to read more
Yeah, I think I really did not realize how big it was until this weekend! It felt like it took forever to get to Fit2Run - I had never been on that side of the complex. It's just massive!Disney Springs is so much bigger its hard to take it all in. I can understand feeling that its not intuitive. I made three trips there in January and still had some navigation issues.
You definitely should. They are so unique! I like the phone cases too...I just got one for the marathon so I thought I probably didn't need another just yet!Love the ornament! I need to get one for Dopey next year. I really do like the phone cases they do, I have a Dopey one.
Agreed. I should probably start trying different flavors though, this was my second Sprinkles visit and I got the same cupcake both times.You can't go wrong with a Sprinkles cupcake!
No, no it did not!
Oh noooo. I felt nervous enough driving a Camry (normally I drive a Civic, which is a bit smaller). Can't imagine driving a huge van!You're lucky! I got there Wednesday night and they only had 15 passenger vans. Uhh, no thank you, Alamo.
Didn't it?? The CMs there do such a great job!The ornament turned out amazing!
Me too! I don't think Mr. Ariel484 would enjoy it much either, which is why it's perfect for solo time!I love just walking around and window shopping at Disney Springs, but I rarely get to do it because the kiddos and the husband are not interested!
Wow, thanks so much for reading all of my reports! So much fun that you are going to do the races with your nieces, you ladies will have a blast!!Yay - so excited to see another race trip report from you Shannon! I've read many (if not all) of your past ones. I ran the princess half in 2015, and was thinking of everyone last weekend. Planning to do the challenge in 2018 with my nieces, so I need to start getting pumped Okay, going back to read....
