I could go running and racing...but I am not fast. An NYE, runDisney, no-kid-in-tow trip to WDW!

    That's awesome! I only listen to Disney music when I run.

    And what's with that one random guy in orange? Someone didn't get the memo. :rotfl:

    That's Jim's favorite too! And sadly we don't have one in Atlanta. We do hit it up any time we are at Universal.

    Hmmmm, I'll have to let you know what I get. Our bands shipped today! I wonder if they are starting to run out of those, maybe phasing them out for something different?

    This is me every day! I so badly want to do a cruise but they are so expensive I would have to skip Disney World for a year which I haven't been able to bring myself to do yet.

    Oh yay! That's so exciting! I'm starting to get anxious-excited about Marathon weekend, too! I run to a lot of Disney. Nathan only runs to loud music with a strong beat, etc., but I'm all Moana all the way! Tarzan's my jam! Sometimes even soundtracks like Wishes and Fantasmic. :)

    Amazing!! Congrats on running the full 5k, too!

    Oh wow, you must be busy...

    I do this, too. It's a problem.

    I was thinking the same thing!! I'm curious to see what you get!! What color bands did you go with this time?

    I went once when I graduated high school and then we went on our Honeymoon. We did the split Land and Sea cruise so we spent half the week at WDW and the other half on the boat--best of both worlds!! Though now that I'm a more seasoned Disney traveler, that's not enough time on either land OR sea!!! What to do, what to do!?

    The funny thing is I have such a random mix of music on my playlist, so I have There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow followed by some Five Finger Death Punch....LOL

    I went with yellow to go with my race costume although I'll probably end up wearing my Pluto Magic Band. But I want to get all the colors in the new style so I just stuck with yellow. I have grey, green and now yellow. Jim went with purple. He was so excited when they added that. They have a black one now for sale and I'm hoping they will add it to the selections someday because that would be the ultimate color for Jim!

    That's an idea. I have such a hard time getting Jim to go for more than a few days though. He's too much of a workaholic. But maybe I'll just leave him at home and take my Mom. :rolleyes1

    There's the main problem. :rotfl2:

    What a great picture! That looks like fun!

    Aw! Those are both super cute though! We don't get luggage tags as DVC members :sad: but your post just reminded me that maybe I'll get them because I booked two nights at POR in April. How does that work? Or, do I have to book a package to get the tags? I think that might be the case, so sadly, still no luggage tags for me :sad:

    Now there's a plan!!! :)

    Of course!! :) But at least I have friends who understand it's hard to stay away from Disney!!!

    I think you have to book a package....but I'm not 100% sure. If you get Magicbands for your stay, you should get them, I think!?

    Hmmmm, this is making me wonder if I will get them as I have room only booked for January. My bands are supposed to be delivered on Friday so I guess I'll find out then.

    Got my bands yesterday and no luggage tags. So I guess you don't get them for room only.

    I'd LOVE to! I am really excited, but getting kind of nervous at the same time!

    We arrive at WDW on the 30th! I am planning for plenty of Miller Lites before (and after)!

    OH Man am I blind this is just your PTR. But I'm looking forward to your newest TR.
    You have just confirmed to me that you are crazy. :eek:

    :cheer2:

    Yay can't wait to hear about this.

    LOL DH just found out on our trip in Dec. that people can eat there and now wants to do it on our next trip. Boy was I surprised.

    Hope you enjoyed your most recent trip and am looking forward to hearing all about it.

    Thanks :) LOL Now, I just have to find some time to write it!!!

    Yep. Totally crazy and now that I've done 2 runDisney events, I am totally addicted. I was actually sad the morning of the Half marathon that I didn't get to go run in!! What am I even talking about!?? I didn't even properly train for the 10K I ran. There is seriously something so magical about running through Epcot and the Boardwalk as the sun is just starting to rise. I felt like I was out of the club when people were walking around with their Half medals and I didn't have one! LOL See, you're right. Crazy.

    Thanks!!! We did (despite the cold!) Can't wait to share it all here!!

    OK, so I owe you all a great big apology. I swear I haven't abandoned you all, and I absolutely promise to write a TR about our colder than it should've been December-January trip!!! I am having some technical difficulties getting all of my pictures into their folders--they got all scrambled up and out of order, which has been a huge PITA!!! On a happy note, I purchased the archive disc of all our photopass pics, and it arrived over the weekend. Hopefully with that to help me sort our days out, I will be able to get up and running (ha, see what I did there) on this TR!!

    Thanks for hanging in there...unless you've already lost all hope for me. In that case, please come back!!! :)

    Still here too! I hate when I upload the photos to Flickr and they get out of order, so I feel your pain.
